Make Your Event “The Greatest Show on Earth!”

The Greatest Showman HeaderThe Greatest Showman, starring Hugh Jackman as the legendary P.T. Barnum, premiered on December 8, 2017 with all the glamour and style worthy of the Greatest Show on Earth. The musical film tells the story of the world-famous circus and rise of P.T. Barnum from his humble beginnings as the son of a tailor, to becoming the owner of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus. With the movie’s success, we’re seeing that its original music and circus regalia is inspiring a fun trend in party and event themes. Here are just a few ways to incorporate circus inspiration into your next event:

Issue invitations to your event with a “circus ticket”. Encourage guests to join in the fun by wearing bright clothing with large polka dots, bow ties, and tulle skirts. Amusement Masters red and white stripped carnival tents added to the mix are an inviting way for guests to immerse themselves in the experience. Use colorful balloons everywhere, and incorporate performers like jugglers, gymnasts and clowns that add entertainment and engagement to the event’s ambiance.Amusement Masters Carnival Tents

Rent an Amusement Masters snow cone or cotton candy machine. Kids love to create custom snow cones by mixing flavors and spiked snow cones are also a fun twist for adults. Adding cotton candy in fun, fruity flavors is an affordable circus themed treat. 

Add to event staffing, an old-fashioned lemonade vendor in a red striped jacket and bow tie. This vendor serving lemon and limeade drinks with fresh fruit in cocktail glasses is ideal for a circus-themed bar and bat mitzvahs, quinceañera or sweet 16 parties. Use stripped chair covers, and beautiful Lipizzaner stallions or Tennessee walking horses in the event’s circus themed decor.

Watch guests as they enjoy a root beer float bar, hosted by the circus strongman or a wild animal trainer. They’ll enjoy unique creations like Mountain Dew and ice cream with pop rocks. Fresh pretzels with toppings like Jalapeno and chili can be a fresh take on the old favorite.Amusement Masters Concessions Trio

If your event is for adults, including circus themed cocktails is the perfect addition. Substitute the traditional bartender uniform with top hat, bow tie, and bright sequined vest while he or she shakes up ‘Gigi Gourmet Cotton Candy‘ martinis. Serve elevated circus themed treats like mini shrimp corndogs and sriracha-lime popcorn. 

 From games to rides to concessions, we have so many fun and exciting ideas for incorporating circus inspiration into your event. Connect with us, and let’s get to planning! 

Spider-Man Climbs The Ninja Tower Before Hitting Summer Cinemas

The newest film in the series of Marvel Comics movies, Spider-Man: Homecoming opened last week with a successful summer box office weekend…making it the #1 movie in the world. But just the week before Spider-Man was swinging into our Lynchburg, Virginia event and climbing the Ninja Tower! Thanks Spider-Man, we look forward to you dropping in again soon. Next time, check out our Adrenalator!

Spider-Man on Ninja Tower

Spider-Man: Homecoming is the second time actor Tom Holland has played Spider-Man. The first exciting time was in Captain America: Civil War where we saw Holland bring the new iteration of this superhero to life. It was thrilling then and even more so in his own stand alone movie. Finally we get to see an awkward Peter Parker turn into the hero we all want to see. The film’s timeline begins directly after Spider-Man’s fight along side the Avengers in 2016’s Civil War. There is a bit of plot that gives the audience some context from eight years before during the Avenger’s NYC fight with Loki.

Peter Parker has some typical teenage moments with his adult mentors Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau), who offer advice that Peter follows and also ignores. With the addition of Tony Stark into the Spider-Man franchise fans are given a full dose of the Marvel Universe that they have been clambering about for years. Aunt May played by Marisa Tomei is also fabulous and gives us some of the more family moments of this much needed teenage format. 
This version of Spider-Man and Peter Parker is less cocky that some of the other offerings we’ve been spoon fed through the years. Something that Holland latches onto and really makes his own. It is part of what makes the story believable and what makes Holland so lovable. The movie delivers some genuinely effective action/suspense, ranging from the Washington Monument to the Staten Island Ferry to Coney Island and beyond. Director Jon Watts has put together a well crafted movie for the superhero genre. Sure there are bad guys and explosions, but the movie has a lot of heart and just the right amount of CGI.
Overall, this is the best of the Spider-Man movies – by far. Actually using a teenage actor in the role of Spider-Man is very pleasing and genuinely needed for believability. As for story, this might be the best superhero story so far to have gotten it so right. If you’re a fan or not this is a good movie on its own merits. Swing down to your friendly neighborhood theater and catch it on the big screen!

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!
