It's time to answer another frequently asked question. Today's question is...
What needs to be prepared for the performer when he arrives?
For the most part, we come self contained.
If you are having a show, make sure there is enough room for the audience to sit comfortably and enjoy the show. For a small show, the magician does not require a lot of room, just enough to comfortably move and place his trunk. If it is outside, you may want to put blankets down in a shady area. If you are booking a larger show, space requirements will be discussed at the time you book your show. A face painter may require a corner of a table and two chairs.
Some items do require electric - fun foods, spin art, air brush tattoos - we provide a 25 foot extension cord.
The rides do require a bit more on your part when it comes to layout of the party. Please realize the rides are very heavy, we can not pick them up and carry them. Vehicle access to the area is prefered. The rides also need to be within 50 feet of an electrical outlet - we supply appropriate extension cords for the operation of the ride as required by law, and we can not add on extension cords. Each ride has a different foot print, that will be discussed when you schedule a ride for your event.
If you are having a dunk tank, there are a few things to consider. It needs to be placed within reach of your hose, it takes roughly an hour to fill up the dunk tank. Also, when your event is over it needs to be emptied and all that water needs to go some where. The drain is on the left rear side of the tank and should be set up so it doesn't drain towards any buildings or delicate vegitation.
We try to make our appearance at your party and easy as possible on you, after all, you have your guests to enjoy. We try our hardest to come fully prepared with everything we need, and we leave your event space the way we found it. If you are ever unsure about anything, all you have to do is call and ask. We are happy to answer any questions you may have.
