2013 New Attractions..You Get To Help!

The Portland PartyWorks Annual Hunt For New Fun Is Underway

Our 3 weary travelers have begun their annual New Event Exhibition. Travelling over mountains and plains, across the great Mississippi and passing the Gulf until they finally  arrived in the relentless heat of Florida on Monday. Although hungry and tired, our 3 selfless troopers are determined to tough it out for the greater good. Mike, Kristina, and Roy are stuck the entire week in Tornado Alley searching for 2013's crop of interactive fun.

1 Wack-A-Mole                                                                               

Once the game starts, the moles will begin to pop up from their holes at random. The object of the game is to force the individual moles back into their holes by hitting them directly on the head with the mallet, thereby adding to the player's score. The quicker this is done the higher the final score will be.

2)  Beat The Bucket:

Allows a player the opportunity to control their fate; provided they have the reaction time and skill to do so. A single player stands behind the station and with the aid of a blocking arm, can defend the two targets from being hit. A second player throws water-logged balls (or Juggle Balls, Tennis Balls, Nerf Balls) while trying to hit the 2 targets. If the player using the blocker can act quickly enough, they can stop the ball from hitting the target. However, should the ball happen to strike a target, a cool, refreshing bucket of water is dumped from above. The bucket then automatically resets and fills with water, ready for the next defender.

Check out the video on the Bucket!


Interactive Music Experience http://youtu.be/9JeLUZO5iGs

fun and "revolutionary" game movements. And ReRave is the first music "interaction and reaction" based arcade game to feature a huge 42" multiplayer color touchscreen monitor in a internet-enabled cabinet, combined with a 
real-time global interactive player ranking network with frequent music and software updates in the near future !
It combines music rhythm, as well as physical dexterity and accuracy to create a innovative gaming experience that is both fun and challenging for all ages and skill levels. ReRave gameplay breaks the barrier of "old fashioned" scrolling and matching symbol play typically found in music rhythm games with its unique,

Junior Mechanical Bull

These bulls were built for children to enjoy the ride and not actually go on an 8-second ride straight onto the mat. Soft and realistic without being intimidating this is the perfect answer for your little caballeros (cowboys).
The spin is not as rough as the mechanical rodeo bulls. The bull itself is much lower to the ground than the standard full-size bulls the the padded mat is soft

5.) Professional Mechanical Bull                                                                               

This isn't for the faint-of-heart. The large horns add to the life-like features of this Rodeo Ready Mechanical Bull. The bulls head and textured cowhide skin will have the bull rider holding on tight.
Operated with programmable and pre-set rides this bull almost runs itself. Along with many other safety features there is an auto rider shut-off.
