The comfort one feels when eating a hamburger, hot dog, and other barbequed specialties is undeniably one of the best aspects of a fun summer picnic. That is why thousands of employers are choosing to show appreciation for their employees by hosting annual summer picnic events.

The company picnic is a great way for employees to see each other outside of the day to day routine, offer teambuilding activities, and a great way to offer some relaxation in a busy time of year. But with every company picnic, the common question is: "What will every one do?"

This is where inflatable games come in.

They offer something for everyone, whether it be an interactive game, a fun activity, or simply a visual appeal, inflatable games can serve many purposes. The right selection of inflatable games and rides for a group can be decided by looking at several variables.

The first thing to consider is the size of your group. The last thing you want to do is have a small amount of entertainment for a large crowd. There is nothing worse than having a bounce house be the sole attraction at an event that should have higher capacity inflatable toys!

Higher capacity inflatable games like slides and obstacle courses offer the ability to handle more participants in an hour. They offer approximately 3-4 times the throughput a standard bounce house can provide. Jump houses/bounce houses are great for special events and parties, but when you have a big crowd - it is always recommended to rent an inflatable slide or obstacle course to keep the lines down and your guests happy. (There is nothing worse than standing in a long line on a hot summer day!)

Many company picnics have long standing traditions of Softball games, volleyball tournaments, or like activities. These organized activities are great for teambuilding. A bungee run, inflatable joust, bounce house, slide, or inflatable maze can compliment the organized activity, or even act as great tools for teambuilding. Offering other ancillary activities like carnival games, pony rides, petting zoos, and even field games can be a great way to make sure there is something for people of all ages at the company picnic.

In today's world company picnic entertainment is blossoming into a specialized industry, and industry professionals are becoming very skilled with the proper way to present event entertainment options and provide activities for the entire group. Finding a professional picnic entertainment provider for your event is just as important as finding a good catering company to provide the food at the picnic! In some situations you can find a planning company that will handle all aspects of the event, so that as the person in charge- you can sit back, kick up your feet, and enjoy the company picnic!
