Are you searching for a great idea for your social group, your club, your company department, or even your sporting team?

It might just be the perfect way to bring everyone together for a reward and a special occasion full of smiles and laughter. Throughout spring and summer 2017, Shooting Star Amusements will be at carnivals all over BC, bringing laughter and joy to everyone.

How many activities can you name that will satisfy this many?!

The Group Outing That Actually Works for Everyone

Choosing an activity for a group outing sure has its challenges. You have to make sure the activity suits the ages, interests and abilities of all group members.

Sure, you can do escape rooms, but certain personalities tend to dominate. Movies are good, yes, but there’s not much interactive fun. A pub outing is good, but only for certain age groups and provided nobody drinks too much. A concert appeals only to some people. Same for a sporting event or activity.

This is where one of BC’s spring and summer carnivals comes to the rescue with a wide variety of amusements and activities to suit multiple tastes, age groups, personalities and needs.

Attractions for All Generations

Midway rides make for amazing memories and huge smiles. From the Merry-Go-Round to the Ferris Wheel to the Lightning Bolt, there’s a ride for everyone.

Then there are midway games that are not only fun but strengthen friendships and bonds through laughter and friendly competition.

Otherwise, from live music to dog shows to arts and crafts, a carnival has activities for everyone to enjoy.

Then there’s food… burgers, fries, hotdogs, candy floss, ice cream, lemonade, Mexican delights, you name it, plus… the famous mini-donuts beloved by all.

Great for You the Host

Hosting a carnival group outing means easy planning and there’s nothing for you to set up. All the activities and entertainments are already there, waiting for your guests to enjoy. And the added bonus? You won’t have to clean up afterwards! 

A Memorable Gift to Give and Receive

A group outing to a BC spring/summer carnival is quite simply a great gift that people will always remember. There is no better way to strengthen friendships, team spirit, or family bonds than experiencing fun, joy and laughter together.
