Spring 2016!!

Welcome to Spring, well almost!  Carnival Times spent the winter months gearing up on our services, as well as new attractions to make your company party or backyard gathering one to remember.  Thinking back;  moonwalks or bounce houses use to be the exciting new accompaniment to parties.  Well, times have changed and while these are still a great fun way to celebrate and give kiddo's something to do as party preparations take place; crazy themes and bigger attractions are making it possible for folks to AMP up their party!
We have added our third mechanical bull, Whiplash.  Yep, he's quite the character!  Also,  another backyard obstacle course to our inventory that is your step up from "just a moonwalk" and still within budget!  Pictures to come soon! 
Carnival Times is also providing a webpage dedicated to carnival games.  We plan to increase our game inventory so that there are many more choices for your party without breaking the budget.
We always look forward to this time of year when the weather gets better and planning is underway for outdoor fun.   Community Events last year were in full swing by May, so be sure to contact us soon for a consult about what works best for your public venue.
Discounts!!  Yes, we have them!  Let us design a package for you.  The bigger the event the larger the savings.  Right now we are offering 10% off any party, whether it is a single moonwalk or a big blowout!  2016 is going to be a great year, with fun times!  We are here to provide you with the best inflatables, mechanical bulls and specialty items at the best rates, with the best service!

After Prom Parties!

There are two times in your life that you'll always remember; the day that you graduate high school...which is more of a relief than anything else...and the night of your prom! High school is known to deliver some of the best times of your life, but it's not all about the big dance. What really seems to count is what happens after the dance, and if you're looking for the best After Prom party, Carnival Times can help make it a night to remember.

That's largely thanks to industrious parent-teacher organizations that have upped the level of bribes meant to lure prom-goers back to the school grounds and — with a strict no re-entry policy — off the roads and away from drugs and booze. For the students, after-proms provide a chance to take off the formal costumes and be themselves, while keeping the idea of a special night going.

Many schools have opted for a simple casino night with a photo booth. Also a Western themed Urban Cowboy Hoedown has grown in popularity.  Our favorite yet, is a "Warrior Dash" inspired event with huge obstacle courses and mechanical attractions like our Log Slammer. 

No event is too large or too small for Carnival Times to host.  We are already booking dates now for April and May, so don't wait too long to find the right entertainment .

If your date is set, then give us a call at 816.569.2855 to help you make this the very best night to remember. 

Party On!

Jump into Spring or should we say... Slide!

Spring is here, but Summer is just around the corner, and is going to bring the heat along with it.  The ever so popular water inflatable slides, slip n slides, and dunk tanks are a great way to keep your guests cool!  BYOT (Bring your own towels!)  Reservations for these go fast so be sure to make yours before the end of May to ensure you get the unit that best fits your party theme.

At Carnival Times we have some very exciting party rentals.  For private parties there's a new moonwalk in town:  try our Chaos Challenge or the Dual Lane Slide Combo.  Many party ideas come to mind.  Are you a Mizzou fan?  Corporate colors are Black and Yellow?  Construction industry?  Caution!  Both can be enjoyed by teens and adults too.

No worries, we have The Wrecking Ball!  Up to 4 can play at once on this  high energy game. If you need a little help with the planning we have plenty of ideas, such as cone races, hammer the nail, or excavation digs to name a few.

For those of you are looking to elevate the party, take a look at our new Leaps and Bounds (see the Big Baller video above for more details.) Wipeout has become a hugely popular party theme too!  Everything about this fun, colorful interactive inflatable is going to make your event the one everybody will be talking about.  No water required! But you can add a dunk tank for a bigger splash.   

And don't forget our fun food machines like Snokones, Cotton Candy, and Popcorn!  Go to our website carnivaltimes.com or visit our Facebook page, Carnival Times, Inc. to see the latest event pics and more!

If you need a little help with the planning we have plenty of ideas, such as cone races, hammer the nail, or excavation digs to name a few.

Buyer Beware...

Carnival Times, Inc.  

We've seen many stories in the news this season regarding inflatable moon-bouncers getting picked up by strong, gusty winds that blow a poorly secured inflatable in the air.  Yes, this can happen, and even more stories could be told.  This type of news involving accidents can be frightening. In recent years, rental companies and trade associations have been working together to create a "culture of safety."

Not all inflatable devices and inflatable companies are the same.  Many of the safety problems that arise are due to a lack of proper education on the part of inflatable rental companies, and rental companies who are providing inflatable devices that are not applicable to the ASTMF 2374-04 Standard Practice for Design, Manufacture, Operation and Maintenance of Inflatable Amusement Devices, and insurance requirements.

Since the inflatable industry is still largely unregulated — except for states such as New Jersey that began regulating inflatables in 2002 — it isn't difficult to get into the business.

Buyer Beware  ~  Many smaller businesses who are now in the 'rental business" may be poorly educated on the industry standards and these practices.  As a consumer, please be sure you are working with a company that is providing inflatable equipment that meets commercial guidelines and the company itself is insured to the industry standard. 

In addition, the most common reason for incidences to occur is not following safety protocol.  Carnival Times is committed to Safety & Training for all employee's.  We cover all aspects for setup, maintenance and operation of inflatables, as well as a refresher course in step-by-step procedure at the beginning of each season.

It is also important to us, as a company who works directly with consumers for their party rental needs, that our products are manufactured by those companies who comply with the law and follow Consumer Product Safety Guidelines. 

As always, Party On!   Beverly Hills-Krueger
