5 Do's & Don'ts for Riding a Mechanical Bull, Waianae, Hawaii

When it comes to party entertainment, it doesn't get much more exciting than a mechanical bull. Bull rides are a fast-paced, physically challenging activity, and they're fun to watch too! If you're getting ready to try your hand, there are a few tricks you should know to keep things safe—and to stay on longer.

Mechanical Bull Tips

1. Do Dress Right

The last thing you want while you're riding is to be adjusting your clothing. If you're wearing a skirt, this isn't the night to try. Make sure you're wearing long jeans to protect your legs from being pinched and leave any loose items, like hats and glasses, with your friends.

2. Don't Drink & Ride

Like many activities, mechanical bull rides are more dangerous when your judgment and your balance are impaired. If you've been drinking, save your bull riding attempt for another night.

3. Do Use the Right Grip

Mechanical BullYour mechanical bull will have a rope, a leather strap, or a metal bar to grip. Hold on with one hand and leave the other free to help you balance. Place your hand palm up—this will help you move more easily, and also help you release your grip more smoothly when you fall.

4. Don't Double Up

Bull rides are not a couples activity. When you ride, your body will be flung back and forth and will hit the other person. Going double on a mechanical bull practically ensures that someone will sustain a head or face injury.

5. Do Relax

A bull ride is designed to start slow, then get wilder the longer you hang on. Many people panic and try to adjust their grip when the ride speeds up, which is a sure way to get thrown. Relax—the ride will be more fun and you'll stay on longer, too.
