The Positive Impact of Hosting a Company Family Day Event

Amusement Masters Family DayWhether it’s a carnival atmosphere with inflatables, rides and ice cream, or organized activities such as biking, archery or DIY projects, company family days can be fun events for your employees and their families to enjoy. That fun-filled time can also generate additional benefits for your organization.

Here are three benefits of hosting a company family day:

Secure Company Retention
Showing your employees that you respect and value them goes a long way toward securing their loyalty. One way to do that is to simply treat them to a company family day. Taking a little time away from the regular routine for some enjoyment can help employees recharge and become more productive. Additionally, such a special day provides employees to not only bond with their families, but to discover shared interests with colleagues and supervisors. That connection can have a great impact on employee retention.

Demonstrate Your Commitment and Appreciation
Treating your employees to a day of family fun shows them that you appreciate them and the work they do. It also demonstrates your commitment to their well-being, which can boost morale and increase productivity.

Encourage a Healthy Work-Life Balance
These days, it can be difficult for employees to effectively split their time between family and their responsibilities at work. By hosting a company family day you demonstrate your company’s support of your employees’ between work and personal lives.

Amusement Masters has a large inventory of games, rides and amusements that open the door for creating great experiences for employees at company family day events. Click here to view video of one of our favorite 2016 family day client events! Then for tons of ideas on how Amusement Masters can help to make your US family day one that employees will never forget connect with us!

4 Hot Amusements & Novelties For Your 2017 Holiday Company Party

It’s time for your company to start planning for the holiday party. But it’s not fun to do the same things year after year or to do what everyone else is doing. So, this year, stand out by considering these four Amusement Masters’ super-fun entertainment options!

PHOTO BOOTHS & SELFIE STATIONS
What better way to remember your time at your office party than with a photo booth or selfie station, right? With our Photo Booths you can go into a booth and take photos with friends and coworkers. Have us add some props, and you really and the fun and silly. Then print your photos out and take them home…extending the memory beyond the holidays!VIP Photo Booth

Or, add a selfie station like our DC Digital or the Instacam Station. What is a selfie station? Well, instead of going inside a photo booth and having to print off your photos, a selfie station is just a free-standing station. Our selfie stations allow party guests to choose from amazing backdrops, green screen effects, and filters just like the apps on your phone. Plus, you can send these photos instantly to your phone or social media accounts!DC Digital

GOURMET COTTON CANDY
Another fun idea is to add a cotton candy booth to your party activities and dessert stations. But not just any cotton candy…Amusement Masters Gourmet Cotton Candy! A sugary treat that’s perfect for all ages – our cotton candy is made in a wide variety of flavors (some very unique) and each made from air-spun organic evaporated cane juice, using only 100% all-natural flavors and colors. Here are a couple of great ideas to customize and make this more of an ‘adult’ station:

Add LED lights! We can really bring your cotton candy offerings to life by adding LED-filled handles. This is great when you want to add a night-club feel or simply light up the party.

Mix in cotton candy into some cocktails! Mixing champagne with your cotton candy is a deliciously sweet addition to any adult cotton candy booth.Cotton-Candy GLO STICKS (1)

CASINO
Keep your party entertaining by bringing the casino to the office. Bring in craps table, black jack, poker, Texas hold ‘em, roulette or other must-play casino games. You can rent these tables from various companies, or just grab some tables and set them up yourself. They are a fun and inexpensive way to make sure your guests have the time of their lives! You can even build a party theme around it, like the Roaring Twenties. Have fun with it!Casino AM 2

LED GAMES
Captivate guests and light up the evening with the glow of LED lit games. From an electric dance floor to glowing billiards or radiant ping pong, LED Games add unique entertainment to parties instead of the traditional. If you want to see your guests leave the party with a glowing smile then LIGHT UP your event!LED Dance Floor

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!
