Happy New Year!

Welcome 2012!   I hope all of my fans had a fabulous holiday season and an awesome new year!   2011 was a great year, but I am totally ready now to move forward with some awesome new games.    First up – the Zippin’ Zone.    Yup, that’s right – Amusement Masters now has a mobile zipline that will officially debut in March.   But for now, here’s a quick teaser:

Zippin' Zone

It’s fully adjustable from 100’ to 200’ in distance – so the footprint can be adjusted to fit any event.   The Zippin Zone uses the same patented auto-belay system as our rock walls for the ultimate in safety.  Book it for your next event and see if you have what it takes to step off the platform 30’ in the air and experience the ultimate thrill!

Football Season!

Football, America’s pastime, throwing the ole’ pigskin. I don’t know if you are excited, but I sure am! Whether you like college football, NFL, or just like attending high school games, there is no denying the excitement for football is here. Tension has been building with the NFL lockout all summer long but now that it is finally over football fans everywhere can celebrate! So what does that mean? Being who I am, all I can say is “event!” Don’t know how to plan a football themed event? That is what I am here for! I am going to go over some basic things you need to consider to help you achieve the perfect football themed event!

Budget. You must know your budget before you begin. Once you have gotten your budget, figure out what you are looking for and how much you are willing to spend to achieve the results you want. Write out what you are willing to spend more or less on. Detail your budget so you know exactly how much you can spend on all the little things and al the big things.

Audience. Who are you targeting? What kind of football do they like to watch? If you are working for a college, you might want to focus on the college team on campus. If you are working for a company, maybe you want to focus on college and NFL teams. Maybe you could even incorporate some Fantasy Football into your event.

Venue. Where are you going to host the event? Is it accessible? Does it cost anything for you to rent out? Is it at a location that your audience can easily get to? Think about your audience when choosing your event?

Advertising. How is your targeted audience going to be informed of your event?

Purpose. What is the purpose of your event? What will be occurring at the event? Be creative! There is so much you can do with a football theme! Not to mention, we have some pretty awesome football attractions that I showcased on this weeks Game Girl. If you missed it, do not fret. Just click this link.

Feel free to comment with some tips of your own! My tips are very generalized and probably something you already know but there is nothing wrong with a refresher course!

Until next time,

Game Girl Gigi

Game Girl’s Game of the Week: Be A Rock Star!!

I am one of those people that sings in my shower, belting out the latest tunes I hear on the radio.  I swear I sing better than some of those artist, but hey, that’s just me.   Some people agree that I “really” can sing,  I just haven’t been discovered yet.  There are tons more like me, I just know it.  Waiting to get their break, waiting to meet the right person who can hook them up with someone at Sony Records. But hey,  they’ll just wait til that time comes.  

That time could come at your next event where they could record their version of  Tardy for the Party or Achy Breaky Heart. Right there in front of their co-workers, family, friends, wedding guests,  they could be making the demo cd that could change their lives. I’ve done it myself, and it sounds so cool, like a real cd!  I just haven’t met the right person to give it to yet. You and your guests could be like me and make a personal cd, custom with your name, company name or custom logo.  I mean, you’re the artist, you tell us how you want it to look and sound!  This is just one of my game picks for the week. It’s such an experience that I have 2 bonus picks this week!  

You can’t make a cd without something visual!  How is someone going to know about this fabulous sounding person without a video.  Yeah that’s right,  you need a video to make your personal brand stand out!    Make your own video to compliment your new cd!  This is the time to channel your alter ego with costumes, props, and so much more.    This is just going to make this a stand out experience.  You can really rival some of the artists and what they do in videos all at your event!    This will make this one of their best, best, best events.  

Like I said,  I’m so excited that I have one more game pick for the week!  Ok, so you’ve got the cd, the video, now all you need is a knock out photo.  You know, the picture that is really really going to wow them.  The one where you can let your imagination run free to really show them all of your creativity!   We’ve got Green Screen Photos too!  We can super impose you on anything, just from the picture you take.   This will really leave a lasting impression. A total package impression!   Call me to give you more details on these cool ways to make your event the talk of the town, and who knows you or someone you know might get discovered!
