05 Sept 2022

Soft Play Mobile Centre

If you’ve graced this blog post with your wonderful presence, it can only mean one thing. You’ve been tasked with putting on an event and you’re wondering how you’re going to make it the best event in the history of events.

So rather than drivelling on and using the word ‘event’ too excessively, we’re going to do our best to help you out.

To put on a great event, you need to hire great products. So what are these great products?

Well, we have quite the collection of great products here at Live 9 (over a hundred!), all of which come with our assurance of quality. But to find the best of the best, we only need to follow the figures: here are our best-selling event products for hire!

Trampoline Trailer

Since the day we introduced this trampoline trailer here at Live 9, things have really been on the bounce. Ok, now that awful dad joke is out of the way, we can finally spring into action. STOP IT.

Anyway, our trampoline trailer is great because it contains 6 beds, meaning you can have 6 children jumping at the same time, all bouncing their lil’ socks off to try and get higher than their friends (or, indeed, foes).

What’s it suitable for? Literally any event with children. These trampolines are as safe as they come and will be fully supervised by one of our fully-trained team members.

100ft Assault Course

Oh yes, it’s time to bring out the big guns. Specifically, one that is 100ft long. But don’t worry, it’s not actually a gun. It’s an inflatable assault course, and yes, it is completely awesome.

This course contains no less than 12 obstacles, each as adrenaline-inducing as the last. Family, friends and co-workers go head-to-head and race through a 100ft of pure madness, leaping and dodging and ducking and various other -ings. And because the sides are fully netted, everyone gets to watch the chaos unfold!

Eternal glory awaits the victor of this hugely popular assault course. And hopefully a drink of water. You’ll need it after this!

Ultimate Wipeout

We have the BBC to thank for this particular product. Total Wipeout was a hit show, and as anyone could have predicted, the Ultimate Wipeout is a hit product.

The premise of this game is delightfully simple. Each player (up to 6) stands on a podium and has to remain standing for as long as they can. But it’s not that simple, oh no. There will be two rotating beams which exist for the sole purpose of wiping you the heck out.

What makes these beams so effective at their job is their unpredictability. Just as you dodge one, it may suddenly change direction and come right back at you. And remember, there are two of those bad boys. You don’t stand a chance. Mwahaha!

That evil laugh, by the way, comes from one of our fully trained members of staff who will be operating the game. They’ll be making sure everyone is safe, but more importantly, they’ll be trying to wipe you out by controlling the speed and direction of the beams. Better stay in their good books!

As fun (or, you know, not fun) as it is for the players getting wiped out, it is perhaps even more fun for those who are watching. This is a fantastic game for spectators; it never fails to draw a crowd and will have people (evilly) laughing for hours!

Crazy Golf

It’s crazy golf, of course it’s popular! Suitable for all kinds of events both indoors and outdoors, this classic activity never fails to entertain guests of all ages and abilities.

We hand-picked this particular crazy golf course for its, well, craziness. Oh, what’s that, you think it looks easy? Well then what are you waiting for? Grab a club and show us all how it’s done…

What could go wrong?

Side Stalls

Many folks have “Stepped right up” to our fantastic side stall games. Some win prizes, others win diddly squat - but everyone has a blast, and that’s what counts!

Among our collection of side stalls are the coconut shy, higher or lower, the hook-a-duck, and the tin can alley. These games are timelessly fun; no matter how fancy technology gets, people will never not enjoy the simple delight of hooking a duck!

These side stalls, which are manned by our friendly team members, are particularly well-received at any sort of carnival-themed event. Everyone can have a go, and there are some sweet prizes to be won!

Skittle Alley

Honestly? We’re not sure what makes this game so popular. I mean, you just throw a ball at some skittles and try to knock them down. Not much more to it than that.

Maybe its popularity speaks to the human condition. Are we all barbarians at heart, with a latent desire to smash and destroy all that stands in our way? Is the chaos of the modern world triggering humanity to regress back to its neanderthalic routes, causing us to seek out games that would have been popular in a hunter-gatherer society? Is throwing balls at skittles a metaphor for-

No, sorry, you’re right. It’s probably just because it’s really fun.

Bungee Run

People just can’t get enough of the bungee run. It’s most likely due to the competitive element; going up against your friends, family or co-workers always promises to be a thrilling encounter.

You also get to compete with yourself. There’s something ridiculously satisfying about beating your own best by placing the bean bag further and further down the track as you learn to conquer the bungee run.

Competitiveness aside, it’s also just heaps of fun. The bungee ALWAYS gets its way, which means you will always end up flying backwards in a mesmerising display of backward rolly-pollys and flailing limbs. Needless to say, this one’s for the spectators as much as it is for the bungee runners!

Here at Live 9, we are the proud providers of one of the only portable soft play centres available for hire in the UK. And just look at this thing… it’s bloomin’ massive!

Yeah, when we acquired this bad boy, there was a brief moment when we thought, “Did we just go TOO big?” …

But after seeing the looks on little ones’ faces as they lost themselves in this soft play paradise, we knew we’d struck gold. Featuring obstacles such as upper snakes, a v-bridge, net crawl, a dark tunnel, and of course a whopping 3ft slide, this is the perfect place to let your kid’s imagination (and feet) run wild!
