At parties during medieval times, water slides were slathered in hot tar, bounce houses were made of granite, and a crude approximation of a sports challenge was to escape the narrow alcoves of an iron maiden. Turn grim guests into grinning partygoers with today's Groupon: for $100, you get a three-hour rental of a giant water slide, bounce house, or five-sided sports-challenge course from Fun Services in Land O' Lakes (up to a $225 value). Customers receive free delivery within a 7-mile radius of headquarters; a delivery charge applies outside of the 7-mile radius. The $200 value of this Groupon can also be used toward any other rentals or packages.
Supplying all types of social gatherings with entertainment-enhancing games and activities, Fun Services stocks a sprightly set of family-friendly water slides, bounce houses, sports activities, carnival games and prizes, and rides. Careen down a backyard hill or through a convention-center lobby on a 15-foot-tall water slide or defy gravity and nonsquishy surfaces with a bounce-house rental. The five-sided sports-challenge obstacle course is an athletic showdown that challenges wee-ones with inflatable barriers to hurtle over, such as soft blocks and miniature tax-accountant stations. All equipment is set up and taken down by Fun Services's staff members.
Party planners can also rent other event equipment, such as carnival games with tables and booths ($75) or a snow-cone machine and supply rental ($75). Request a quote for additional celebratory options, from creative jewelry-making supplies to a space-shuttle play station made entirely out of moon-culled cheese.
