Football Season!

Thursday, August 18th, 2011

Football, America’s pastime, throwing the ole’ pigskin. I don’t know if you are excited, but I sure am! Whether you like college football, NFL, or just like attending high school games, there is no denying the excitement for football is here. Tension has been building with the NFL lockout all summer long but now that it is finally over football fans everywhere can celebrate! So what does that mean? Being who I am, all I can say is “event!” Don’t know how to plan a football themed event? That is what I am here for! I am going to go over some basic things you need to consider to help you achieve the perfect football themed event!

Budget. You must know your budget before you begin. Once you have gotten your budget, figure out what you are looking for and how much you are willing to spend to achieve the results you want. Write out what you are willing to spend more or less on. Detail your budget so you know exactly how much you can spend on all the little things and al the big things.

Audience. Who are you targeting? What kind of football do they like to watch? If you are working for a college, you might want to focus on the college team on campus. If you are working for a company, maybe you want to focus on college and NFL teams. Maybe you could even incorporate some Fantasy Football into your event.

Venue. Where are you going to host the event? Is it accessible? Does it cost anything for you to rent out? Is it at a location that your audience can easily get to? Think about your audience when choosing your event?

Advertising. How is your targeted audience going to be informed of your event?

Purpose. What is the purpose of your event? What will be occurring at the event? Be creative! There is so much you can do with a football theme! Not to mention, we have some pretty awesome football attractions that I showcased on this weeks Game Girl. If you missed it, do not fret. Just click this link.

Feel free to comment with some tips of your own! My tips are very generalized and probably something you already know but there is nothing wrong with a refresher course!

Until next time,

Winter Wonderland

Wednesday, January 12th, 2011

I am sure you know by now that Atlanta has pretty much been crippled by a winter storm.    The 6″ of snow we received probably would not have been as big of a deal if Mother Nature had not also decided to give us a nice layer of ice on top of it.     So, as I sit here trapped inside by the snow and ice, I thought, why not work on some Winter Wonderland themed events.   I know what you are thinking – forget winter, I am ready for the tropical theme.   But trust me, come August and the 90 degree temperatures, you will be longing to have an event with this awesome theme.

We start off with some simulators.   Test your skills on a the ski slopes with the Alpine Ski Racer.    Want something a little edgier?   Try snow boarding with our Alpine Surfer.   Have you ever dreamed of riding a snow mobile through the city…if so, the Arctic Thunders are perfect for you.   We even link 2 of them together so you can race head to head against someone else.      If space won’t let you have one of the simulators, try a video game console with a winter sports game.   Our 42″ high def screens will have you feeling like you are in the middle of the action!

But the true show piece of any winter themed event is definitely Playmotion.    We can work with you to customize the experience for your event so your guests can build snowmen, bounce snow flakes across the screen and play with ice scapes…all by simply letting their shadows interact with the images on the screen!   It’s the ultimate in creating a unique winter themed event for your next event or meeting.

Game Girl’s Game of the Week: Carnival Time!

Friday, February 19th, 2010

Do you remember the magic of a carnival or a special theme park that just made us incredibly happy! Eating my favorite sweet sticky cotton candy, playing silly games to win huge stuffed animals, the rides… spinning round and round or being tossed from side to side.  This is the life!     Bring out the kid in your guests with a carnival theme for your next event with the Tea Cups ride.  Your guests will squeal and laugh in the six tea cups that are spinning round and round. And for added excitement, they can speed up the spin of the Tea Cup.  This is the coolest game for all ages, families, and makes for a memorable kids birthday experience.  So my pick for Game of the Week – Tea Cups!
