What is a Spring Rider?Typically designed for children ages two through five, a playground spring rider or bouncer is a highly popular outdoor play component of the classic school playgrounds. The signature feature of these exciting play elements is the centrally located industrial strength metal spring which provides a bobbling and bouncing motion that children adore. Conditioning children both physically and mentally, spring riders encourage playful and energetic activity by using the inertia of the child to perpetuate a bouncing and rocking motion while incorporating muscle development. Fitted with one to four fiberglass or plastic seats, each of these spring riders can accommodate two or more children at once which facilitates the mastery of cooperation and socialization skills. Multi-child Spring Riders come in several interesting designs from standard bouncers to seesaw type spring riders. The Single Spring Riders are available in the most colorful animal and vehicle designs. With so many spring riders to choose from, you may opt to create an entire spring rider play area for several kids to use them at one time.

Spring Rider ADA Accessibility
There is now great news for children with disabilities! They are now protected by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) which has implemented minimum accessibility requirements for all public playgrounds from preschool playground equipment to church playground equipment. This comprehensive civil rights law is enforced by the Department of Justice and includes specified guidelines and requirements for newly constructed and altered play areas. By including a playground spring rider among your chosen playground equipment, your facility is satisfying the ground-level play components requirement. Spring riders are considered ground level because the child may approach, ride and then exit directly back onto the accessible route. The hand grips on a spring rider are also wonderful ADA features as they provide torso support for a handicapped rider.
