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.

The Silver Show is also available in a ten game version for even more fun-fun-fun!!!!

The Silver Show for Schools.
We also have kids versions of the Silver Show games for schools, scouts, cubs, guides and youth days. These have had updates and changes for 2018 as well.  The new inflatables and tweaks make it an even better set of games then ever.  Year-on-year more schools are realising that one of our It’s A Knockout’s are a great adrenaline way to keep a year group (or even the whole school) active.  For more information please see our Schools & Youth Knockouts page or Contact Us for details.

As with all our sets of games. Ever one, in every team, takes part in every game. NO ONE IS LEFT OUT !

Our Silver Show is ideal for medium and large events. It is available in two versions, 8 games, which will last about 4 hours and also as a ten game version. The image below shows the eight game version from 2015.

The Silver Show is more inflatable based than the Bronze Show.  As an example, the inflatable slide game is bigger on this set of games. Because we need more staff to set up this bigger set of games, it automatically covers up to 18 teams talking part. Other teas can be added. However, after 36 teams we would suggest moving up to the Gold Show.

The eight game version needs about half the size of a football pitch in room and is usually ran in two halves. The dry games in Part 1, then the wet or bubbles games in Part 2. Like all our Knockout’s, everyone, in every team, gets the opportunity to take part in every game. No one is left out.

Ran as an exciting team event and as a great spectator attraction, the Silver Show makes an impressive addition to large charity fundraising events, family fund days, or entertainment events.

School Activity Days and Youth Events.

Our Silver Show is also great for school activity days and youth events. For these days we change the games a little and make them more adrenaline based. Many schools use our games for end of year activity days, fresher days, incentive and reward events. The most students that our Silver Show can cope with in a single session is 480. However, two sessions can be ran in a day (one AM, one PM) meaning that a school with a thousand children can get everyone involved in the fun and excitement.

Knockout Challenge offer different scales of games for events. From our Mini Knockout for small team building type days to our Gold Show for large events of 36 teams or more. Please visit our Packages Page for details.

Team Gazebo Ideas

This blog follows on from an earlier one this year about Some fancy dress costume ideas for Its A Knockout teams. Another great idea for It’s A Knockout days is for the teams to bring a team gazebo with them to use as an HQ. This is great for a few reasons. Firstly, the teams have somewhere to place their bags etc. Secondly, if it rains, or it’s sunny and hot (fingers crossed), they have somewhere to shelter. And, thirdly, it adds a colourful spectacle for the day having an Olympic Village string of gazebos for the teams, especially if they are encouraged to decorate them as well, which is what this blog is now moving onto.

Some ideas for fancy-dressed team gazebos

Encouraging the teams to bring a gazebo that they fancy-dress up generates great pre-event team building as they will have to get together to discuss this along with their own fancy dress ideas. Usually, the two are combined as you can see from the images in this blog. It may be that a team dresses in grass skirts, call themselves “The Hawaii-5-0’s” and hang some bunting and balloons up around their gazebo. Or, maybe they go to town and make scenery and bring extra props to really give the gazebo a theme. We usually also give extra bonus points for the teams if they bring a team gazebo and dress it up.

Some of the regular It’s A Knockout days we do for clients have turned into quite a competitive affair of trying to think up the best fancy dress and gazebo ideas. This adds to the team building element of such days. The ideas that our It’s A Knockout enjoy are if a team does a Great British Bake Off theme, because usually a lot of yummy cakes get offered to us as bribery ! (it doesn’t work, because we are impartial with the scoring of the games, but it’s always a nice gesture.)

Of course for charity fundraising events, an Olympic Village of fancy-dressed team gazebos is an excellent way to fill room free. One side of the It’s A knockout games arena can be used for the gazebo village which adds a really colourful display. Corporate teams can be told they can display their wears and company signs as well, giving them exposure as thanks for supporting the day. We hope that the images here have inspired some of the teams taking part in our It’s A Knockout events this year with ideas.

If you’re taking part in one of our It’s A Knockout’s this year, please send us photos’ of your fancy-dressed team gazebo, or upload it to our Facebook Page, we’d love to see them !

Knockout Team Building Challenge

Team Building activities have been proven to aid bonding and help colleagues from different departments “put a face to the name”.

Versatile, Adaptable,  Fun team building.

Its A Knockout is the perfect solution for team-building groups where ages, interests and skills are very different. Teams can vary in size, so small and large groups can easily be accommodated.

It’s a Knockout is an informal day away from the office fun activities is an ideal way to get employees to know each other and break down barriers.

We have over the years developed activities and games that are almost a “fits all” for away days. We offer many variations from Sports Day to a Bouncy Olympics, to It’s A Knockout.

More than just games.

There is so much more than just the actual Its A Knockout Challenge that promotes team building – there’s the creation of team names, slogans, chants etc. Anyone unable to take part in the physical challenges due to ill-health or can be enrolled as “cheerleaders”, “scorekeepers” and “paparazzi” for the day – it should be fairly easy to find a role for everyone!

We have a number of Charity Knockout Challenges where your company could enter a team; enjoy a great day team-building and contribute to a worthwhile cause.
