Boasting more than 60 midway games in stock, Fun Services of Grand Rapids proffers traditional fairground entertainment for festivals, picnics, and school events. Games such as a bean-bag toss and duck pond thrill young competitors, and bottle ring tosses and shooting games challenge older players' coordination and distract them from the latest fad of underwater tweeting.
On a larger scale, Fun Services' staffers inflate obstacle courses, slides, and bounce houses, and set up sports-related games of skill such as dunk tanks and putting. They also organize pony rides, elephant rides, and trackless train rides to let guests experience the way people traveled before railroad tracks were invented. Staffers can hand-deliver the games and help helm concession stands such as cotton candy wheels and sno-cone makers.
