Operating a theme park requires a steady supply of electricity for success—whether you’re referring to a major commercial park, a small weekend community carnival, or rides for neighborhood parties. In all cases, power is imperative and usually comes from the power grid. The grid could go down at any time, however, disrupting rides and entertainment much to the dismay of park-goers and other guests. Even worse, power could cut out when people are on rides, causing potentially unsafe conditions that incite fear and panic and lead to injuries.
Theme park operators could avoid problems arising out of power outages by having backup generators that could assume the load when the power grid cuts out. Generators can power up at a moment’s notice to allow operations to continue seamlessly.
Before buying generators for a theme park or carnival, a manager must determine the amount of power needed to keep the rides and other entertainment running. The output of the generator must be able to supply the appropriate electrical demands.
The following are some quality generators that could provide backup power for theme parks:
