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.

Create A Tougher Team With Team Building Events!

team-building-in-corporate-setting-1-1024x768

When it comes to building a successful company your team is a very important part of the process. That’s why Amusement Masters understands that events with team building activities and games are helpful to any size company. Building strong relationships between both you and your employees is just one way to successfully build a strong team that is going to help your company grow. But an event specific to this focus can often create invaluable work place relationships, and can help your team learn how to work together at the height of efficiency. One way to help decide if the addition of a team building event is right for your company is to understand a bit about what type of events, games and entertainment options are available to you!

Let’s Retreat And Get To Know Each Other
Team building events can be so much more than just gathering to meet over a meal. There are a wide range of things that can help build strong team relationships that are actually super fun – retreats are one such event. Try taking your team away from work for a day (or two) so that they can focus on friendships, learning how they work with others, and getting to know their team mates. And we have lots of games that can be incorporated into a retreat environment…like our Black Ops Obstacle Course that brings out the competitive spirit in every employee. Retreat events offer a great way for employees to relax and recoup – emerging new energized for the work ahead.

Show and Play
Carnival events and family focused events can also be a great team building experience. Allowing your team to bring their family and closest friends together for an experience is just one way that you can help your employees build pride in their work. This type of event also allows your team to have fun and to associate work with fun and happiness rather than the daily grind. We have lots of ‘carnival’ fun activities that can be mix and matched to create the perfect custom event for your company.

Connecting Is Better When We Eat Together
Dinner and luncheon gatherings are still a great way to bring your team together over something that we do every day…eat! They can also be a wonderful precursor to bigger events later on. This type of activity is something that can be pulled off in a few days and that allows you to start honing and creating the relationships that will help your team work together seamlessly. For these types of events we encourage employers to add activities that include a special take-away for those attending – making it a more special event. Adding Green Screen Photos, a Photo Booth or even our onsite Live Screen Printing (custom t-shirts) is a super fun activity that can be company branded adding another layer to engaging with each employee.

Team building events are wonderful investments for companies of any size because each one allows your team the chance to come together, to get to know one another, and to truly start to learn how to work well with one another. They are a great way to engage with employees – and ultimately they help in avoiding employee turnover and having to go through the hiring process again and again. If this seems like something you want to bring to your company then let us help you plan a great team building event! Let’s connect so we can share how Amusement Masters can help to make your company a much more pleasant and productive place to be!

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?!

Three Reasons You Should Bet On Casino This Holiday Season

Tis the season for merriment, tinkling cocktail glasses, and twinkling lights. When planning your holiday party – whether it’s for your corporate office, a local non-profit, or a gathering of family and friends – put your guests in the mood to give and receive by incorporating popular casino games that will delight and surprise even the ‘Grinchiest’ party guests.
 
Sound like a new holiday tradition in the making? Amusement Masters can host, staff, and curate a wide variety of your favorite casino games such as roulette, black jack, and craps, so you can focus on enjoying your party rather than entertaining.  Here are our top three reasons your guests will be thankful you bet on fun this holiday season!
 
A Theme To Remember
Transform your traditional holiday party by adding a unique and memorable theme that inspires guests to attend, talk about, and share your event. Whether you simply want to add an element of old world elegance to your sparkling soiree, host a full out holiday prohibition party, or throw a neon Santa bash with Black Light games (because who wouldn’t flee the North Pole for the bright lights and casino games in Vegas?), there are hundreds of ways to incorporate casino games into your holiday party theme.

Casino AM 2

Those That Play Together, Stay Together
In addition to adding an element of novelty that sets your event apart from the deluge of holiday festivities, casino games introduce an element of camaraderie to your event that encourages guests to mix and mingle better than mistletoe ever could. After all, what could bring competitive coworkers together better than a friendly game of blackjack, or get guests rubbing elbows better than a throwing the dice together at a lively craps table?

Casino AM 7

FUN-raising and Fundraising
Casino games raise the bar on fun … and are a great vehicle for fundraising. Let guests donate to their favorite charity for extra chips or contribute to a company cause to play. During this season of giving, why not do some good while having fun? While this tactic is especially effective when encouraging gifts at non-profit events, it can also elevate corporate matching programs and inspire community service between friends in new and unique ways.

Casino AM 3

No matter how you choose to celebrate this holiday season, add a new element of fun and levity to your event with casino games. Contact us and we’ll help you plan the perfect lineup of games for your most successful holiday party ever!

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!

Game of the Week – Jumbo 18′ Foosball Table

foosballplayers

“Foosball is a game that constantly test your skills against your opponents luck” – Whimsical Scribe from 1985

Isn’t it funny how a game with plastic molded players and a tiny coin sized ball can evoke such emotion? From elation to a cold somber demeanor, with just the flick of the wrist a game of Foosball becomes endless hours of fun that will take you on an emotional roller-coaster of highs and lows.

Invented in 1921 by soccer fanatic Harold Thornton, it was destined to become the popular interactive game that audiences of all ages love to play. In fact, at Amusement Masters we love playing it so much that we decided to take the standard 4 ½ ft table that Mr. Thornton constructed and magnify it up to 4 times the standard size! Our JUMBO Foosball table is 18 ft long and allows up to 16 players to compete against one another in a monumental Foosball game of epic proportions!

IMG_1253

Bring this jumbo game to your event and watch the fun unfold as a team of 16 Foosball enthusiasts match-up and compete. Coordinate teams that work together passing the ball down the table all while keeping it from the opponents. Watch them get in striking distance and let her rip, while being careful not to spin!

This game is perfect for an event where you’re looking to build great group synergy, hours of excitement and lasting memories. So what are you waiting for? Call us today, book it for your next event and start having JUMBO fun!

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.
