Its easy to move, but How easy?
What about the maintenance issue?
OK ! So how much MONEY can I make?
1. Where can I operate my SX-2 units.?
The M-4 or SX-2 units were designed to operate in virtually any leisure setting. Theme Parks, Family Entertainment centers, Arcades, Shopping Malls and of course, Fairs, Festivals, Air Shows, or any Catered and Special Events.

2. Are these ride systems safe?
Safety has been a main design feature and improving on the basic safe unit is an ongoing requirement. The Standard M-4 unit has computer diagnostics tests being run while operating which monitor power supply, panic systems, interior smoke alarms and safety stop systems. All units are equipped with both interior Panic Stop switches and exterior operator Abort Stop ability at the computer. New designed features include higher voltage power systems and larger battery back-up models. Door Open Stop switches and much improved Passenger restraint systems are in service and improvements for older M-4s are available.  Simworx has several improved versions of Perimeter Fencing which meet most safety requirements and ensure a safe operating environment.

3. How easy is the SX-2 to operate?
The first M-4 units were designed to be simple and fast to seat and buckle each rider and then start the ride with one touch on the monitor/touchscreen. As the M-4 evolved into the M4-SX improvements were made and faster /easier was the goal. Now that the SX-2 has arrived, the operator needs only to CHECK the rider security then push a ride choice on the touchscreen. Its almost too simple. The tough part is pocketing $10 to $14 every 4 to 6 minutes !!

4. What type of Electric Power is required?
Most M-4s operate on 110Volts AC current with a 30amp circuit. The M4-SX and SX-2 need 220Volts AC current and 30 or 40amp circuit. The needed 220Volts AC can however be divided into two(2) separate 110Volt AC 20amp circuits with an optional 220 divider cord. For mobile units an optional AC generator (5500watts-single 8500watts-double) can be used.

5.What costs would I plan for in addition to the purchase?
General Liability Insurance is required in all states. Most locations will charge either a flat fee or a percentage for rent. Promotional advertising (ads, fliers, discounts, web sites, graphics, banners, extra tv, ) of course will cost as much or little as you care to invest. Many owners hire employees to actually operate the rides and offer incentives in addition. A large percentage of owners feel it necessary to purchase Custom Concession Trailers to have advantages of Mobile Operations and Static Indoor settings. (Talk to your sales Representative)

6. What type of Insurance will I need?
General Liability which covers day to day operation and additional coverage for trailer/simulator transportation. Typical costs run between $1500 and $3000 per year for the minimum $1,000,000 coverage. (Talk to your sales Representative)

7. Are there REALLY NO HYDRAULICS?
YES !! Even though most other simulators use noisy, messy, high-maintenance hydraulics, the M-4, the M4-SX and SX-2 DO NOT. Quiet dependable electric servo motors are the heart of our units.

8. Its easy to move, but How easy?
One of our earliest operators recently informed us that even though he had been to more events than most operators, he had run and moved and operated his M-4 unit for the past 6 years all by himself. Suggest at least 2 enjoy moving and operating these money makers.

9. What about the maintenance issue?
Preventative maintenance is paramount and because so many M-4 and SX-2 units are in service Simworx can provide both Technical and Parts support from the first day forward. Maintenance manuals are provided with training available on-site as an option.

10. OK ! So how much MONEY can I make?
MONEY YOU ASK !! We have designed an entertainment unit thats easy and fun to operate and in addition can generate up to approx $1900 a day. Of Course all operators are not created equal. The more successful owners will own many units and have learned from experience (thats right there is some learning involved) that the BIG BUCKS happen when a great business is duplicated over and over and over. (here are some revenue charts we have compiled)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

US Army Recruits with M-4 SX Motion Simulator

Simworx , the Fargo, ND based marketing and management firm have recently completed a mobile recruiting simulation unit for the US Army.

This is the second project for the US ARMY completed by Simworx this year and will follow the “SARGE” which is the US ARMY’s top fuel dragster currently on the NHRA drag racing circuit..

The US Army is providing potential recruits a virtual flight experience as one part of a four part program and recruiting effort across the USA. A career enhancement presentation, sports activities and education area complete the fully mobile, self -contained presentation.

With a custom Humvee leading the way, the 20’ mobile simulator and trailer are transported to different locations in major markets where the presentation is set up in less than 30 minutes by a crew of 3 people. The mobile simulator offers terrific billboard value in transit or at any event.

The M-4 was one of the first simulators in the world that features 360 degree rotation in a motion simulator. It was introduced in 1994, evolved into the M-4 SX2 and has been one of the most versatile and mobile simulators available today that can be found in many notable and high profile locations throughout the world.

The development of the SX-2 Motion Simulator began in 1992 and was originally a standard M-4.
Prototype units were operated in the Upper Midwest during the period from 1993 to the Summer of 1995.
The Sales and Marketing Co, Adventure Quest, incorporated in 1995 with first sales of the M-4 occurring in Fall of 1995.
Custom trailers were added as an option in 1996 thus allowing operators mobility to bring the simulator to Fairs, Festivals, and Special indoor/outdoor Events.
1997 and Simon Property Group / Simon Debartolo Mall Development Group gives unanimous approval for M-4 placement in company owned malls.
There are more M-4, SX-2 units operated in shopping malls than any other type of simulator in the world.
Production machine #3 made in 1995 continues to be in operation in the Mall of America, (Minneapolis, MN) and has been the largest dollar grossing Kiosk attraction in the mall’s history.
Approximately 110 units were produced from 1995 to 1999.
M-4 was as far as we know THE FIRST 360° Rotating Motion Theater on the market.
M-4 was named the most popular product of the year by NACA, (National Assoc of Campus Activities) in both 1997 and 1998.
M-4 became the SX-2 in 1998 after many enhancements to the sound, video, and overall appearance.
The SX-2 continues to be very desirable with further improvements to the safety harness system and various high resolution projectors available.
