Bust-a-Balloon

Balloons are attached to a board with a number behind each balloon. Players burst balloons by throwing darts, and they could win a prize corresponding to the number behind.

Milk Cans

A game of skill where each player receives three baseballs to throw into the top of a milk can. A player must get three balls in to win a prize.

Tick Tack Toe

Based on Noughts and Crosses, the large board features nine holes. Players throw balls into the holes and if they achieve 1 row, they win a prize.

Hoopla

Each player is given three rings to throw over a block. Getting one ring over achieves a win of a small prize, and they can work up from there.

Laughing Clowns

A traditional carnival favourite. Players place 6 ping-pong balls into the clown's mouth and add up the score. Prizes relate to each score.

Lucky Numbers

Buy a ticket, and your number on the ticket corresponds to a prize. These prizes could be all made from donations from your school families and wider community. Numbers are put in envelopes or drawn from a barrel.

Cost-efficient profit share.

We know you are working to a budget. The initial cost of hiring rides for your event is an expense you need to manage carefully. Wittingslow Amusements offers a cost-efficient ride hire scheme, otherwise known as profit share.

Like many others schools or community events, you can opt for hiring rides on a profit share rather than paying the overall hire fee. We share the profit of your ride sales with you by offering 50% of the total takings after expense to the school.

Pre-selling unlimited ride wristbands prior to your event at a slightly discount price encourages your patrons to buy tickets ahead of time. As the event organiser that also give you peace of mind that your event will be well attended.

Advantages of profit share for school fetes

We work through the Profit share ride hire scheme with you and offer

  • 50% takings based on sales of all pre-sold unlimited ride wristbands and tickets sold on the day after the sales target figure is reached.
  • If your sales target doesn’t reach the value of your package, there’s no cost to you. Your percentage will be reduced marginally according to the difference between the package cost and total sales.
  • We work with you before your event to set realistic guidelines and make appropriate ride selection for the number of enrolments.

To help you with your planning, here’s some simple profit share ride hire scheme formulas and features.

Let us add joy to your school fete and festival today. We also provide personalised packages to cater to specific event themes

“School fetes – I love them, the clowns were always fun, my kids like fishing for a plastic duck and winning a prize. I always used to get a kewpie doll on a stick. Good times” – Susan

“The giant slide! Home made toffee! Playing with school friends, safe and familiar territory in school grounds, relaxed parents, family-friendly – it’s all about the community.” – Lauren

“We have used Wittinglows Amusement every year for our school fete. They have always worked closely with us to ensure we have the best rides to suit our school space, and on fete day their team have moved in swiftly and safely to set up for our big event. They’ve even helped us out when bad weather prematurely closed our fete. The following week they and returned to our school with a Giant Jumping Castle for the kids to enjoy at lunch time.” - Rob Nigro, Boneo PS School Council President
