ARCHERY WITH INFLATABLE TARGET BOOTH
With the popularity of the Hunger Games movies, as well as television shows like Game of Thrones and films like Brave and The Avengers, participation in the sport of archery has most definitely increased. With our new Archery setup that includes an inflatable target booth you can now bring the excitement of this competitive sport to your event! Perfect for team building and carnival or sports themed events.

BRAIN ART
Hi tech becomes hibrow when cerebral activity is used to create one-of-a-kind artwork that each event guest can take home with them. Brain Art‘s engaging activity is one where everyone gets something that’s unique and creative to them – a print of art from their ‘brain storming’ session! Super cool, right?!

HIPPO CHOW
The childhood game ‘Hungry, Hungry Hippos‘ is brought to life with ‘Hungry, Hungry Humans!’ Seriously, playing Hippo Chow has been some of the most fun we’ve had with any of the games in our ‘super-sized’ category. Great for team building or as a spotlight activity for a party. Your attendees will be talking about the fun they had playing this game for years to come!

LEAPS AND BOUNDS
Are you a fan of watching TV episodes of the reality gameshow with a goofy twist, Wipeout? Have you ever wanted the chance to try a ‘Wipeout’ inspired challenge? Now’s your chance with our Leaps and Bounds inflatable obstacle course! It’s a super fun addition for team building and carnival events.

Virtual Hero For Your Next Event

One of the newest forms of entertainment for special events is incorporating gamification into event activities. Amusement Masters is proud to be a pioneer of this new trend by offering gamification opportunities to clients through a suite of virtual and customizable games called Virtual Hero. The term gamification refers to an incorporation of social and reward aspects into an activity. Essentially the concept of ‘gamifying’ links the game player with a system of online social interactions and rewards through customization – personalizing the game experience all-around for the user. With Virtual Hero we use green screen imaging to capture an event attendee’s image and literally place them ‘inside’ the game that’s played on their own personal mobile device during the event. Each Virtual Hero game can be customized to the specific event’s theme or company brand of the host of the party. It’s a unique game tie in with ‘social engagement’ that most games cannot match – engaging for players of all ages!

By adding our Virtual Hero game to an event clients’ have the option of four interactive games, each with a fun virtual twist:

• Hit the Hero, is a fast-paced game that emulates the old arcade favorite Whack-A-Mole. In this modern update, the game is customized so that the player whacks their own face and attempts to not hit the rabbit. All good fun, in an effort to increase their points and make it to the event leaderboard for prizes and recognition. Want to see how this game works? Click onto Google Play!

• Hero Jump is a game that completely engages the player into the action. Players work to jump towards the top and beat the record by climbing the hero tower. Like Hit The Hero, players maneuver to increase their points and make it to the event leaderboard for prizes and recognition. Want to see how this game works? Click onto Google Play!

• Bring casino fun to your event with Hero Slot Machine. This game makes the user feel like they’re in a Las Vegas casino…virtually! The image of the attendee’s face is added to this game and incorporated into a rolling slot machine. Guests then choose a bet and win according to their playing result. Want to see how this game works? Just click onto Google Play!

• For guests who want to show off their style then Hero Dress Up is the perfect activity! The attendee’s image is captured by green screen photography and then put onto a touch screen iPad. Attendees can then customize their virtual fashions to their liking. Once customized and completed the fashionable results are printed…making the photo a great party take away. Want to see how this game works? Click onto Google Play!

We Played At Eventeract!

This Spring we were honored to be a major sponsor for the Eventeract conference in it’s inaugural year. Produced by the Georgia Chapter Meeting Planners Association (GaMPI), the conference was geared towards engaging the meeting and special events planner. The partnership was win-win; it gave Amusement Masters the opportunity to showcase to an audience of planners and it gave attendees two days of play that enhanced the learning experience.

On both conference days Amusement Masters maintained a booth on the expo floor. This gave us an ideal space for meeting with attendees and giving them a small taste of our game and amusement inventory. Our booth was Western inspired and featured the Wild West Quick Draw, our Western Shootout arcade game and our newest game, “Hit The Hero.” The decor was straight from the Wild West with western fencing and barrel decor items. We even brought in comfortable leather seating for guests looking to kick back and take a load-off as they made their way through the expo.

On the first evening of the conference we placed games throughout the conference’s signature fundraiser “The Gathering.” The event theme was “Back to the 80’s.” We loved this theme because it opened the door to bring in a variety of 1980’s Arcade Games and Pinball Machines, our Classic Strip Photo Booth and our new 2014 Instagram Interactive Booth. All in all, Amusement Masters helped keep the 80’s vibe alive that night.

Winter Wonderland

I am sure you know by now that Atlanta has pretty much been crippled by a winter storm.    The 6″ of snow we received probably would not have been as big of a deal if Mother Nature had not also decided to give us a nice layer of ice on top of it.     So, as I sit here trapped inside by the snow and ice, I thought, why not work on some Winter Wonderland themed events.   I know what you are thinking – forget winter, I am ready for the tropical theme.   But trust me, come August and the 90 degree temperatures, you will be longing to have an event with this awesome theme.

We start off with some simulators.   Test your skills on a the ski slopes with the Alpine Ski Racer.    Want something a little edgier?   Try snow boarding with our Alpine Surfer.   Have you ever dreamed of riding a snow mobile through the city…if so, the Arctic Thunders are perfect for you.   We even link 2 of them together so you can race head to head against someone else.      If space won’t let you have one of the simulators, try a video game console with a winter sports game.   Our 42″ high def screens will have you feeling like you are in the middle of the action!

But the true show piece of any winter themed event is definitely Playmotion.    We can work with you to customize the experience for your event so your guests can build snowmen, bounce snow flakes across the screen and play with ice scapes…all by simply letting their shadows interact with the images on the screen!   It’s the ultimate in creating a unique winter themed event for your next event or meeting.

Introducing 3D Gaming!

All new 3D Gaming

Want to play video games in 3D for the ultimate experience?  Well, now you can!  Using the latest technology, we have taken video game consoles to the next level for your special events.   42” 3D TVs  with 3D glasses and games will make this an immersive experience you are soon not to forget.    Several game options included.

Call, email or send us a message on Facebook or Twitter to learn more!
