Declining membership numbers in trade associations point to a clown shortage, but professional clowns disagree and say they’re here to stay.

Whatever illuminations you plan to set off, experts say follow proper protocol, such as wearing safety glasses and keeping water handy. (Photo by Brandon Smith)

Preventative injuries are common around the July 4th holiday because people often don’t follow the proper safety protocol for lighting fireworks.

The service could not have been better and the price was extremely reasonable for such no-hassle, carefree help at a party. I had to do almost nothing to serve the guests, keep them happy and clean up. I will definitely be a repeat customer. This is a great service where you want to provide the food and drinks yourself but need someone to tend bar and serve.

My son saw their business card 2 days before his party. Talk about last minute. I'm considered a bit of a stick in the mud or old school because I don't like what I consider violent games with guns, and I'm not a proponent of some of the music they say is appropriate for kids, so I was a little leary. When I called to talk with them about booking, they fully understood and suggested the perfect game which turned out to perfect for my son's Birthday party theme "Need for Speed".
The bus arrived 30 minutes early to let the AC cool down the bus and allow time set up the games for the kids. They piped the bus with what I thought was age appropriate music and the kids had a blast...while I felt comfortable that they were having good clean fun.
They stayed for an hour of intense gaming fun... And in the process... Made me the "Best Mom Ever"... which is pretty high

They only stayed for an hour because they fit us in between events, but even that says alot about them. They were extremely accomodating and pleasant to work with.
Will definitely be using them again for my events. This time it won't be last minute and I can book them for a longer period of time.

If I could give no stars I would. We have given

several tries and it just isn't the family friendly place it claims to be. I was sent an email for $2 off admission for the month of October, so I called to clarify if it was $2 off each kid or $2 off just one. I told him I was bringing 4 kids and he told me it was $2 off each kid. After getting to

, the manager (I am not sure if she really was a manager or just on a power trip) informed us that it was only $2 off per family. I let her know I called and that is not what the guy on the phone said. She acknowledged the phone call and said she heard the whole thing but would not accept it because it was a miss communication. It is fall break and we brought a friend with us and we couldn't tell the kids no. But this is the LAST TIME

It went very well. It's a bus and when people go on the bus, I think there are 16 or 17 seats and each one has a game system hooked up. I did it for my son's birthday. Kids come and it's air conditioned. They pick a game, they play together and we did it at a park so that I had a table set up with donuts and juice and whatever else kids like to snack on and they play on the bus. It's like two hours of play. My son was turning 9 and it was a lot for the kind of parties I had when I was 9. They all had a great time. They were wonderful. It was exactly what they said it was going to be and exactly how it went. They were on time. I don't have any complaints about it. The pricing was a lot. It was pricey. Of course, I would like it to be cheaper but it wasn't outrageous. It was comparable to others. I don't think we could do the same things for cheaper. The seats were nice. It was a nice setup. It was nicely done.

I had used them once in the past. They always have the balloons ready when they say they will. Their pricing is reasonable. I bought the balloons, had them inflated, bought the weights and plates for the party. You can get anything you need for a party at their location. They are very efficient.

Once it was deemed safe, they showed up on time, set things up and it was a success. Would use them again.
