It’s A Knockout Teams 2019

Fun Image blog: It’s A Knockout Teams 2019

With the 2019 season in full swing, we thought we’d share a few images of some of the teams that have taken part in our events so far this year. You’ll see from the images that some have really “gone to town” with taking part in some type of fancy dress attire. We love teams in fancy dress, it ads colour to the day, and helps us with the scoring of the games.

The images in this blog are from events we have been held at that were as far north as Scotland, and as far south as Jersey (in the Channel Islands). Teams that are in fancy dress get extra fun points added to their score, also designing, making and bringing a Joker card, team Cheerleaders and mascots gain extra points too.

If you’re taking part in one of our fun It’s A Knockout’s please use these images as inspiration for your own team fancy dress. Although just colour coordinated t-shirts are fine, why not jazz them up and ad some nick-names on the back? It give’s our commentator-compere a great opportunity to interact with you.

Remember, that a fancy dress costume should be easy to move around in, you don’t want it restricting you on the games. Also, no full arm/face painting please as it leaves streaks on the inflatables. (A little bit of face only paint may be okay). No sharp objects please, beware pirates teams, no swords! And remember “modesty underwear” in case you costume gets ripped from all the running/diving/scrambling through the inflatables.

The Mini Knockout 2019

Our Mini Knockout 2019 is a great set of games for any small team building style event. It has six colourful games, and the fun lasts about around 2 hours. It has a great mix of games and is still loads of fun, but on a smaller scale to our Bronze Show which travels on an HGV.

The starting price for the Mini Knockout covers up to 8 teams of 8 taking part, but more can easily be added.

The Mini Knockout 2019

We offer different sized sets of games because sometimes people don’t need or require a full sized It’s A Knockout games setup for an event. If you just wish for a couple of hours of activity then the Mini Knockout is ideal. Three of the games are dry, and the other three can be ran wet (or bubbly). As you can see form the top image, ideally the Mini Knockout needs about the size of three tennis courts in room.

This set of games is great for small team building days and small private events. The games are easily scale-able for adrenaline according to the type or level of teams that are taking part.

The Kings Banquet Game

The Kings Banquet Game

For a bit of visual fun and enjoyment, watch a video of our Kings Banquet It’s A Knockout game from our Silver Show. The team in relay collect the pieces of Kings Banquet Cake for his birthday and reassemble (Velcro together) it at the end of our Maze Inflatable obstacle. It’s a great fun game, bashing and weaving back and forth through the course collecting the pieces.

There is a lucky twist at the end where we ask two of the team members to lift the completed cake aloft and deliver it back down and over the Maze Inflatable to finish the game. However, this isn’t as easy as it seems as you’ll see at the end of the video.

We like this game as it’s not set that the fastest or fittest team will win when the end-twist of delivering the cake a-loft is played out.

The Kings Banquet is just one of the eight games on a standard Silver Show Knockout. Click here to visit the page dedicated to this set of games. Plus also see our Silver Show blog article from 2018 for more pictures and info.

Remember to Contact Us for more information or if you have any questions.

Santa Run Obstacles 2018

Our It’s A Knockout inflatables don’t get a rest in the winter months (oh no!), they can also be used by charity’s as an exciting addition to their Charity Santa Run Events for Christmas 2018.  We’d prefer the Santa Run Obstacles laid out in a concurrent straight line course as this helps us with our marshalling them for safety purposes.  We can offer inflatable courses from just a 150 feet long to massive 300 feet long.

Colourful Inflatable Obstacles.

They add a great colourful and visual element to add to a Christmas charity fundraising Santa Run event. The Santa’s will enjoy running along, and bashing down, and climbing through the bouncy inflatables part of there charity run experience. We supply our own power generators, just give us a nice long grass area to lay the inflatables out on and we’ll do the rest.

We can also supply a PA sound system for the day to help you with the Santa Warm Up routine and for any event introductions, announcements and presentations.

To get an idea of the inflatables that we use for the courses, please see our Packages Page.

Please Contact Us and we’ll talk you through how it all works.

Indoor Events 2018

An “It’s A Knockout” isn’t just for the warmer summer months. We can also run the games for indoor events in the colder (or off season) months as well.

We still use usual mix of inflatables and dressing up games, the only noticeable difference being that in most cases (but not all) we can’t offer the water or bubble games of outdoor days.

Indoor Events.

This means that you can use one of our It’s A Knockout games packages for an indoor charity event, team building activity day or Christmas party, come rain or shine or coldness during those colder months.

Venues.

Surprisingly, there are a variety of venues that are suitable for such days. Be it indoor sports venues, sports halls, leisure centres or even barns/warehouses! Some have even given us permission to use limited amounts of water meaning that we can still run our popular bubble-type games which everybody loves.

Indoor Events 2018

We are used to running our It’s A knockout games format on hard standing surfaces and in indoor venues so we have extra safety matting we can bring along to make sure any trips or falls have as less of an impact as possible.

An indoor knockout games can be used for small charity events, schools, colleges, universities, team building and employee reward days, Autumn/Winter parties and yes, Christmas Parties.

More Info?

Please Contact Us if you need any help sourcing a venue for an indoor event, or if you need further details, PDF games lists or just have some questions about an indoor It’s A Knockout day. The games we use though for indoor events tend to be versions of our Mini Knockout or Bronze Show because of the size restraints and height of venues.

Fancy Dressed Teams

2018 Fancy Dressed Teams

In 2018 we’ve seen some great fancy dressed teams at our It’s A Knockout events up and down the UK. So we thought it would be ideal to share and highlight some of these with a 2018 Fancy Dressed teams web-blog. You’ll see from the brief selection of images here that some teams just turn up with as simple as a colour coordinated T-shirt affair, but many really go wayyyyyyy past this and really get into the fun spirit of It’s A Knockout and “go to town”.

Fancy Dressed Teams !

A popular theme for teams nowadays seems to be Justice League or Super Heroes,  this is easily achieved by a quick trip to eBay or Amazon. We look it when teams use a play on words which coincides with their teams makeup. A team of nurses dressed as Elves = National Elf Service (brilliant!). The three images above are “Rock Stars” (with various rock t-shirts), Going Banana’s (Minions) and then a construction company’s team at a charity event simply wearing their high-vis shirts.

The Silver Show 2018

In this Blog we spotlight some of the great new games and changes to The Silver Show 2018 It’s A Knockout that we’ve introduced for this season.

The Silver Show 2018 as a standard package has eight great games, is about half the size of a football pitch and covers up to 18 teams taking part.  Six of these games use inflatable obstacles that are ran, climbed, squeezed, bashed or slid down making it an ideal set of games if you’re after a WOW-factor for your day. Just to balance the six inflatable games off, the Silver Show also has two slower team-type together games to add a bit of team building into the day’s fun and laughter.

With great games such as our re-vamped dressing up sumo suit game “Off To the Beach” game, to the Kings Banquet, Pac Man and Kitchen Kaos, right up to the finale Game 8, the brilliant “Pea Soup” Bubble Pit Game, the Silver Show sets an impressive arena sight of inflatables, games, costumes and props.
