Winter Party

With the cold weather it's a good time to shop around for bouncy castle deals.  If you're planning a party you will find lots of halls in the local area that are just the right size for a bouncy castle some are even big enough for an obstacle course, a giant slide or both.  The small expense of moving a party into a hall (as often as cheap as $60) can be offset against the great mid winter deals on offer.  If you would like to find out more or would like some ideas to help plan the perfect party then please don't hesitate to contact us: please click here for our contact page.
It's amazing what you can fit into some halls but with the mild New Zealand climate there is every chance you can still have your party outside even in the colder months.

Event Activities.

For event activities it is well worth considering different inflatable amusements to those that are used for back yard parties.  A visit to the Arena Party Hire website is great way to discover a huge range of ideas and options that will suit a variety of ages.  The video below shows some of the fun options seen at a family orientated corporate event, including the Thunder Run Obstacle Course.

It's always a good idea to have a regular bouncy castle for the younger party goers but bigger kids, teens and adults need attractions that offer a different challenge and level of interactivity.  Another element that is a good idea to include is the option of party games that can be played together by families.  By bringing all of these elements together you will have created a great event to be enjoyed by all, from those that are happy to soak up some sun and watch the fun to those who are ready to catch a ride on a Giant Slide, race on an Obstacle Course or challenge themselves to a throwing contest on the Circus Carnival Game.  Talking of obstacle courses they do come in various sizes, among the biggest is Arena Party Hire's Thunder Run as seen in the video below.

To finish the day off why not get some family photos in a photo booth?  It's fun and provides a great keepsake of the event with a customised logo on the photo strip.

To start planning the fun for your next event please contact us here.

Bouncy Castle Hire in Palmerston North - What Makes a Great Bouncy Castle Company?

For Bouncy Castle Hire in Palmerston North and indeed the world over, there are certain standards you could expect.  For example; here are some photos of fun bouncy castles, different sizes, different themes, different levels of interactivity. From a regular bouncy castle to a giant water slide, a great bouncy castle company should have an awesome range but is that enough?

Really a bouncy castle company should be professional to be 'great'.  Now what would you expect from a professional bouncy castle company?  Here's some ideas:

  • Delivery and set up by trained experienced staff.
  • Safety Mats supplied with every bouncy castle
  • Bouncy castles with mesh walls to prevent participants falling out.
  • How about a roof on every unit to shade against the sun
  • Units cleaned and sanitised before every hire.
  • How about having the correct tools in the van such as a mallet for the stakes?
  • Here's another thing - our staff are trained not to arrive and reverse straight on to a site where kids might be playing, it sounds obvious but it is so important - we've got kids too.
  • Not only that staff should be able to carry out a quick visual risk assessment when setting up a bouncy castle.
What makes a great bouncy castle company is not how many bouncy castles they have or the range of themes; in fact what makes a great bouncy castle company is the amount of sand bags, safety mats, cones and safety barriers they have available, what really makes a great bouncy castle company is knowledgeable, friendly staff able to implement the hire equipment correctly and take measures to ensure the safety of all participants.

You can view our range here: Arena Party Hire Website  or contact us to find out more about our bouncy castle hire options and the standards we have set.

For up to the minute news check out our facebook page here Bouncy Castle Hire Facebook page of Arena Party Hire 

Having said that there is nothing more exciting for a child  than a colourful bouncy castle and we love that side of our business too.  With new units arriving every year we just can't wait to see the looks on our own kid's faces when the next batch gets to Palmerston North.

Giant Bouncy Castle Water Slide Seen Above Roof Tops in Palmerston North.

Funny how our first blog about bouncy castles actually turns out to be a water slide.  Well it's a similar thing but much, much bigger not to mention wetter. Available from us in Palmerston North and surrounding areas, check us out at Arena Party Hire. The excitement this slide caused when it arrived is absolutely off the scale.  Well for everybody else anyway, for me my first thought was wow - quickly followed by how are we going to get that moved.  Anyway as you can see we soon worked that out and set up one of the biggest bouncy castle slide thingys to ever be seen in Palmerston North, New Zealand.

How did it rate, I hear you ask?  Well the neighbours all stopped by to say how awesome it was, in fact I haven't heard the word awesome so many times in one day.  Young Freddie who thoroughly tested it out said it was the 'best day of his life' and Alice just stayed outside and played on it all day.  Millie loved it too but I think her favourite is still the Princess Castle she can upgrade more to the big inflatables when she gets a bit older.
