The Roll-A-Ball Carnival Trailer ‘Makeover Project’

This summer the project that got the Amusement Masters team really jazzed was the restoration and refurbish of our Roll-A-Ball Carnival Trailer! Always a popular game for events, clients love adding Roll-A-Ball Trailer to event entertainment options year around. We believe in keeping our games up to date and fresh though, so occasionally a game has to be sidelined and freshened up. And while the restoration process is never easy, it’s always worth it. These games are like family members and we hate to see them taken out of rotation for any length of time. But when they return, we’re always thrilled – we love that they come back from the shop so nice and shiny!

More than just a simple refresh, we’re proud to present the Roll-A-Ball ‘makeover project’. Sure the graphics have been brightened and brought up to date. Yes, the addition of more bells and whistles makes the game a little more exciting. But every surface you see has been cleaned, refreshed and touched up. Also, the game mechanics have received a loving touch which makes the responsiveness that much faster with an even better tactile feel. 

Toys

The bright stars throughout the trailer are even more colorful that the old graphics. And along with the refurbished flashing lights, the new stars along the top and sides make this Roll-A-Ball game really twinkle. We’re extremely proud of the way the paint and graphics turned out!

U Vex

Our Roll-A-Ball Carnival Trailer has always been a popular and exciting game, especially for Fall and Spring carnival events. We know that this update will only draw more people to play it and it’ll be a highlight for many events to come. We just can’t wait to fill the new star lined shelves with prizes and watch faces light up as people play and win!

Add Big WOW To Your Events With Big Amusements!

Event planning, whether it’s for a private affair, a corporate event or for a charity, can be a challenge. After all, you want the most “bang for your buck” so to speak. You want to impress every guest and create a WOW factor. While it’s true that the little details matter, sometimes bigger IS better. That’s why we’ve put together a list of five of Amusement Masters’ biggest WOW-inducing offerings:

Big Amusements Blog Collage AM

Swing Ride
Taking up to 20 guests at a time, our Deluxe Swing Ride can soar your guests through the sky. This ride is not only a ton of fun, but it also has an enormous visual appeal, so it is sure to make a significant impact. 

Zippin’ Zone Zip Line
Zip lining is so popular today that you can find zip line attractions in tourist destinations ranging from lakes sites to mountains locations to the Las Vegas strip. Take advantage of this popularity during your next event by setting up our mobile zip line. Your guests will find riding the zip line an an event the ultimate thrill!

Tea Cups
The Tea Cups may look like a kid’s ride, but children of all ages secretly enjoy spinning in them! Bringing with it a great classic appeal – with this ride we have control of the speed and can adjust depending on the thrill level of your guests.

Ninja Tower
Ideal for team building or just to get the blood pumping, the Ninja Tower will give your guests a workout. While it is certainly fun, it’s a tall attraction and will draw attention to your event from a long distance away. The Ninja Tower is an active station, and makes a nice change if your affair incorporates other more ‘laid back’ or relaxed areas.

Toxic Drop
One of our newest inflatable obstacle courses is the Toxic Drop. This course is designed to add extra fun and thrills to events for all ages. Kids love the theming, and parents enjoy it too! The bright colors will make your event something to remember.

As you can see, there are many options for amusements and games that Amusement Masters offers than just the standard bounce house (although if that is what you’re looking for, we can help with that too!) Connect with our team and let us help you make a BIG impact at your next event. We know that with Amusement Masters’ on your side the WOW factor is possible, and your guests will love it! We can’t wait to work with you!

Amusement Masters Fun Until The Cows Come Home

Swinging and zip lining cows…it just doesn’t get much more entertaining than this folks!

Imagine our delight when at the recent Peachtree Corners Festival the Chick-fil-A mascot cows stepped up to ride the Amusement Masters’ Swings and the Zippin’ Zone Zip Line! We just couldn’t take our eyes off watching their excitement and anticipation as they jumped all in for fun. Who knew that cows loved rides?! Now we know they do…just love those Chick-fil-A cows!

Photo Novelties Bring A Lasting Impression To Your Event

AM Green Screen Booth

Event after event we experience first-hand that people love walking away with souvenirs of their experiences. Whether they’re attending a corporate event, holiday party, trade show, bar mitzvah or other social event, it’s fun to have a token to remember it by that leaves a lasting impression…right?!

So what’s more lasting than a real photo? Photo novelty games are a great way to bring people together at an event and end it with the perfect photo take-away. In the digital and ‘selfie crazed’ world we live in, with smartphone cameras in every hand, we find that event attendees still find it cool and different to have an actual printed photo, or item with their photo. Amusement Masters has a wide variety of novelty game ideas that can turn into unique photo souvenirs for all types of special events!

FlipBook Turns A Photo Op Into A Lasting Gift
One of our favorite novelty photo games is the Photo Flipbook. This is a small printed photo book that each attendee can take with them. Guests step into the photo booth, and each film takes a seven second video, which is then turned into the flip book that’s printed immediately. You can even include a custom cover for it that matches your event’s theme. For days, months and even years after the event, people love to flip through these tiny photo books again and again.

Social Event Excitement That Can’t Be Beat
One of the most fun novelty photos opportunities to use at a social event is to bring in a photo area with a large prop, like our inflatable Big Chair. This is an adorable and fun way to mark the occasion. People love to hop up in the big chair for repeated photo ops – by themselves, with a bestie, even in groups! Each guest receives a 5×7 photo to take with them that can be branded to fit the occasion. Great for birthdays, weddings, and even anniversary parties. Commemorate the event on each photo by adding the name and date of the event.

Corporate Branding For The Ultimate Impression
Using a photo novelty game at a corporate event gives you the perfect opportunity to have a take-away item centered around your unique branding – making it a subtle but effective way to advertise. One of the most fun ways to do this is by adding a Green Screen Photo Booth to your event – where we can project any kind of background you want onto it. The photo is then printed with your company’s branding and the event attendee leaves the party with a fun marketing piece that will keep your brand first and foremost on their mind each time they revisit that item.

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?!

Photo Novelty Entertainment That’s Also A Party Favor!

As we move into holiday season your list of party planning ‘to dos’ can get longer and longer. But no worries, we have a solution! Check (√) entertainment AND check (√) party favors both off your list by bringing in a photo novelty activity from Amusement Masters!

Photo novelties bring memory making moments to events that guests can take with them…here, there, and everywhere! With this type of entertainment our team will take your guests picture during a live photo shoot – that image is then incorporated into an activity or product in another fun way. We have a long list of fun, creative and innovative photo novelty options that can be customized for any type of event and for all-ages.

Wondering how to keep a group of 13-year-olds entertained? Book an open-air green screen photo booth! Or wondering how to engage your brand with a group of partying adult conference-goers? Book our Virtual Graffiti Wall or Brain Art booth! From grand to small and intimate, we have a party novelty out there for all tastes. Here are just a few of our favorites – 

GREEN SCREEN PHOTOS
The Amusement Masters’ digital photo studio with green screen background is easily set up on-site for an event. Individuals, couples, or small groups can pose for a close-up in front of the camera and within minutes have their photo printed and placed into a novelty frame. With our green screen we can customize the background to fit your event theme or company’s brand message. This entertainment and party favor option is great for bar and bat mitzvah parties, birthdays, holiday parties and corporate branding events. 

Green Screen

HALOSHOT 360º PHOTOS
Not your average photobooth, this photo novelty is set up in a closed 8×8 foot area that includes a 360º camera suspended from the ceiling of the booth. Groups enter and within seconds, a complete 360º snapshot is taken of the entire group. Our special software then flattens the image and produces a 5″ x 7″ photo that’s printed onsite. The background can be customized with logos or other backgrounds giving your guests a great souvenir from the event!

haloshots-setup-1024x768

DANCE HEADS
If you’re looking for engagement at your party…you’ll have a line to this one! Dance Heads is an amusement that superimposes participants’ heads onto professional dancers’ bodies while they lip sync to some of the greatest pop hits of all time. The mesmerizing effect is then completed with fully animated backgrounds that again can be customized for your event. Up to three guests at a time can lip sync to the song while their animated bodies dance to the music. Within minutes, guests receive up to three DVD copies of their performance. We can even custom the labels on the DVDs for you to bring more ROI to your branding efforts!

Dance Heads

VIRTUAL GRAFFITI WALL
The Amusement Master’s Virtual Graffiti wall is most definitely unique entertainment, interactive and produces a really cool photo party favor. The screen allows event guests to interact and add ‘graffiti’ to a green screened photo of themselves. When adding ‘virtual’ graffiti to the screen guests use the special infrared spray paint cans to virtually draw on their own photos or custom background and make giant works of art. Each creation is printed as a 5″ x 7″ photo that includes a custom footer for your event. The virtual graffiti wall is perfect where you want to add an interactive activity to your event or to your tradeshow booth.

Virtual Graffiti Wall

BRAIN ART
Our newest, and most innovative photo novelty addition to date is Brain Art! This is a creativity base activity, where guests use their own brain waves to create unique pieces of art. Just as an artist decides on a general direction for their imagery before creating their masterpiece, so does your party guest when choosing their art’s style and colors. Once created, guests pick their favorites, coordinate with a room décor in their home, or just go with how they feel on that day. How fun is it that each person at your event could walk away with a printed piece of art that’s from their own personal ‘brain storming’ session!

Brain Art

PHOTO FLIP BOOKS
Who doesn’t want to see their photo in print! With our Photo Flip Books your guests can step up to the booth (with props of course!) and take a seven second video, solo or with a group. Our equipment takes freeze framed imagery that’s then printed onsite and formatted into a tiny book within minutes. Guests receive the unique take-away of their own animated photo flip book as a memory of the event. We can even customize the book covers to your theme or company branding! 

Flipbooks

Do you remember the saying “take a picture…it’ll last longer”? It’s so true! Take a picture at your next event with one of our photo novelty activities and you’ll see that the memory of your event DOES last longer!

Amusement Masters Comes Alive At ISES Live!

In August the Amusement Masters‘ team brought our love of event entertainment and team building to the 2015 ISES Live industry conference. Produced by the International Special Events Society, the annual conference was held this year in one of our favorite cities, New Orleans. We absolutely love New Orleans and our clients in this city – how can you not love producing events where centuries of old architecture is your backdrop!

For any event professional that hasn’t attended an ISES Live conference, you’re missing out. This education event was created to deliver an experience with stimulating industry ideas and promote knowledge sharing with other creative professionals from around the world. Attendees of this 3-day event literally come from all over the globe – many attended that we’re proud to now call friends and a few, clients.

DEAR WORLD, THANK YOU!
The opening session for the conference this year was speaker Jonah Evans of the Dear World project. Dear World unites people through their distinct message-on-skin portraits that are shared worldwide. ISES Live attendees were asked during the morning session to write a short message that mattered to them on their body and be photographed to share their story. We were honored to be a secondary part of this activity, by giving attendees the opportunity to do the same with a custom Amusement Masters’ screen-printed t-shirt. 

Our Live Screen Printing booth started the process for attendees where they selected their shirt t-design and then watched it be printed live. Once printed they could then write their Dear World message onto the shirt. For more than an hour, attendees stepped up to experience our Screen Printing Live booth – we loved engaging with each and everyone of them! Not only did the screen printing booth allow for team engagement and bonding, but it gave every attendee a keepsake that will live on long after the conference has ended.

SPONSORS AS SWEET AS COTTON CANDY
Amusement Masters was also given the opportunity to bring our newest sweet treat, Gigi’s Gourmet Cotton Candy, to ISES Live’s Sponsor Appreciation Reception. Held at the colorful and quintessential New Orleans venue, Mardi Gras World, we had the perfect backdrop for serving 100 of ISES Live’s most important guests…their conference sponsors! From witnessing smile after smile we had proof positive that they enjoyed our cotton candy made in a wide variety of flavors and made from air-spun organic evaporated cane juice, using only 100% all-natural flavors and colors. A cotton candy station was perfect for incorporating into this event…and perfect for holiday parties, wedding receptions, bar and bat mitzvah celebrations and more. We were thrilled that ISES Live let us share our enthusiasm about cotton candy with their VIP!

Carnival of Curiosities – Not Just For Kids!

It’s true that many carnival themed events are targeted for a younger audience and categorized as outdoor, picnic-type events. However, we’ve proved over the years that alternative carnival themed events geared for adults can be just as much, if not more, fun! Carrying the theme of carnival throughout your event gives a planner plenty of adult-oriented opportunities for games and activities. In reality, it’s a theme that has a magical way of taking the ordinary and making it fun with many versatile options for fun details. Guests are made to feel like they are at the greatest show on earth with a multi-sensory experience with colorful décor, customized fun and games and the smell of fun foods that transport them right to the midway. For Spring and Summer corporate events there’s nothing more fun than an authentic and reinvented carnival event.

In 2014 we had the opportunity to work with a client in creating a custom event called ‘Carnival of Curiosities’ for their corporate guests. By embracing a black and red color scheme it gave a darker and more mysterious twist to the standard red and white carnival palette. Throughout the event we created custom midway games. As guests won games they were rewarded with tickets that they could then redeem for a multitude of prizes at the Prize Booth. In addition to midway games there were also interactive amusement games, like ‘Whack-A-Mole’ and jumbo ‘Connect Four’ to keep guests entertained and mingling. It was a custom experience that those that attended won’t forget any time soon!

When planning your company’s next event we encourage you to consider the fun of a carnival themed event. Connect with us and let us add a creative twist!

Team Building Games with Amusement Masters

One of our absolute favorite types of events to provide games for are the ones that build team synergy! Watching a  group come together to overcome obstacles and achieve a goal is super satisfying. Team building activities can have such a positive impact for a team. Communicating in new ways within the group allows members to learn new strengths and gain insights about the people they work with. This gives each individual the opportunity to show their dedication to achieve the team’s goal. We feel the best part about team building activities is getting employees outside the monotony of their work. You engage with them in a fun way, making them feel valued.

Below we are a few of our client’s favorite Amusement Masters games for team building activities:

JUMBO GAMES 

Our GIANT TOWER GAME is a classic that’s now larger than life. Working together, taking turns removing each block, each team can continue to build the tower until it topples. We love that each team must work together or it’s timber for the tower!

Jenga

 

Our 18 foot JUMBO FOOSBALL table accommodates up to 16 foosball players at one time! Competitively play against 8 opposing players, making sure to pass the ball down the long table to score a goal. Whether your team is in defense or offense, each member plays an important role in winning the game where communication is a must!

Corporate Foosball

 

 

Playing our JUMBO CHECKERS AND CHESS games bring a team together by challenging the opposition’s wits through classic board games, now blown up to epic proportions. Create a strategy, implement that against the other team and win the game!
