10 Successful Fundraisers – Products That Guarantee Fun and Funds

Introducing 10 fund raisers that we know are successful!

Fundraising events are an integral part of community engagement and nonprofit organizations. While the goal is to raise funds for a cause, creating an enjoyable experience for participants is equally important. One effective way to achieve this balance is by offering exciting and engaging products and activities. Here are 10 successful fundraisers that not only promise heaps of fun but also contribute to raising significant funds:

1. Dunk Tank

Few activities match the thrill of seeing someone plunge into a tank of water after a well-aimed throw. Dunk tanks have been a staple of fundraising events for decades. Whether it’s a teacher, principal, the boss, or a local celebrity volunteering to sit on the hot seat, people are eager to take their chances and make a splash, all for a good cause. Check it out here.

2. Street Curling

This is our newest of the 10 successful fund raisers. Bringing the excitement of winter sports to any season, street curling is a hit at fundraising events. With portable and inflatable curling kits, participants can enjoy the strategy and skill of this Olympic sport without needing ice. It’s a unique and engaging activity that draws in both participants and spectators alike. Here are the details.

3. Sideshow Alley Games

Step right up and test your skills at classic sideshow alley games like ring toss, balloon darts, and laughing clowns. These games offer a nostalgic charm while providing participants with a chance to win prizes. From young children to adults, everyone enjoys trying their luck and supporting a good cause in the process. See our games here.

Laughing Clowns

4. Inflatable Selfie Stations

In the age of social media, selfie stations have become a must-have attraction at fundraising events. Inflatable stations offer a variety of fun backdrops and props for attendees to capture memorable moments with friends and family. By encouraging attendees to share their photos online, these stations help spread awareness about the cause while creating lasting memories. Check them at this link.

5. Obstacle Courses

Obstacle courses appeal to the adventurous spirit in all of us. Whether it’s crawling through tunnels, scaling walls, or navigating popups and slides, participants love the challenge and excitement that obstacle courses provide. With different difficulty levels, obstacle courses cater to participants of all ages and fitness levels, making them a versatile fundraising option. Our larger obstacle courses such as the one in the featured image can take multiple players which adds to your fund raising opportunities. Sponsors also love them (we can velcro their marketing to any of our products). See our huge range here.

6. Carnival Food

Here’s another of our 10 successful fund raisers. No fundraising event is complete without the irresistible aroma of carnival food wafting through the air. From sno cones and popcorn to fairy floss, these tasty treats are sure to draw crowds. Not only do they satisfy cravings, but they also serve as a profitable fundraising opportunity, with proceeds going directly to the cause. If you have a sweet tooth this link will take you there.

7. Cup and Saucer Carnival Ride

For a touch of whimsy and nostalgia, the cup and saucer carnival ride never fails to delight. As participants spin and twirl in brightly colored cups, laughter fills the air, creating a joyous atmosphere that enhances the fundraising experience. The ride’s visual appeal and family-friendly nature make it a popular choice for events of all sizes. Check out our carnival rides here.

Whether it’s a single slide or a complex water park setup, giant water slides guarantee hours of fun and excitement for attendees. Our double slide products are particularly popular fund raisers as multiple participants can use them at any time. See our huge range here.

Never Give Safety a Day Off


“Never give safety a day off” should be the motto of anyone organising a birthday party. The same goes for school or corporate or council events, fetes or festivals. Recently there has been concern in the media about inflatable safety such as with jumping castles and obstacle courses.

This Blog aims to provide you with a guide to how Bubbling With Energy Entertainment never gives safety a day off. It also covers what consumers can do to ensure their small and large events are safe.

AALARA Safety Committee

Our CEO Mark Rubiolo is on the Safety Committee for the Australian Amusement, Leisure and Recreation Association Inc. (AALARA). It’s the peak body for amusement operators in Australia.

One of the Committee’s tasks is to liaise with regulators such as SafeWork NSW to discuss and implement world’s best practice in inflatable safety. Within these discussions is a plan to release a Code of Practice. All amusement operators will be required to comply with the Code of Practice. It will cover compliance with Australian Standards for Inflatables AS3533.4.1. It will also include setup and operational guidelines for the operators and supervisors of events involving inflatables.

Check the Provider’s Insurance

Also don’t take a day off with Public Liability Insurance. This is a major concern for the industry. During Covid a number of insurance providers left the industry. In turn insurance premiums offered by the remaining providers have significantly increased. Mark Rubiolo warns that anyone hiring an inflatable should obtain a copy of the providers insurance policy. Ensure that is for $20m and is from a reputable insurer ie not from a small tax haven! If the inflatables provider is not insured the risk is too great.

Safety Checklists for Small and Large event Organisers

So, you as the consumer have a responsibility to ensure you don’t take a day off when your event safety is involved. To assist you, do have a look at our Checklist for Hiring Amusement Devices and our Hiring a Mechanical Bull Checklist.




Bubbling with Energy (BWE) Entertainment has mobile inflatable Escape Rooms which will add the ultimate WOW factor to your next party planning.

Participants enter the escape room through an entry door. Then they have to complete a number of problem solving activities to get a four digit code. This code will unlock a padlock on the exit door.

The mobile inflatable Escape Room can be set up in a back yard, a local park, a company car park, a council family fun day, or a school or community hall with a high ceiling. It’s great for teen parties, family fun days, fund raising events, corporate team building and exhibitions. We just need access to a power point to inflate it.

Escape Room activities include decoding puzzles, codes or ciphers, sorting cards, and building something with a message embedded in it. Also, the activities are hidden in secret pouches, books, old suitcases or other props in the room. They are suitable for ages 9 upwards. Mixed age groups are preferred.

Planning Steps

So, are you planning a party or team building event and want to have an Escape Room? These steps will help to make it a smooth planning operation:

  1. Set a goal – will it be a birthday or anniversary celebration, a team building event, or a learning activity such as assessing problem solving abilities or learning about climate change?
  2. Decide a theme – see below. NOTE – if you have a different theme in mind we can develop it for a small extra fee.
  3. Select a date and venue.
  4. Finally, book it with BWE.

Planning Ultimate Escape Room Themes

BWE currently has the following themes:

    • Mission Possible – participants are members of an Australian Mission Possible Spy team trying to save a pandemic remedy from an enemy spy. Note, all our activities are “possible”.
    • Heroes and Villains – teams try to save a precious golden egg from a group of villains.
    • Aliens – teams are trying to escape from a nasty alien who wants to transport them back to his dying planet called Vogonsphere.
    • Alice in Puzzleland – suitable for a girls only party, this Escape Room theme takes “Alice’s” on a journey through Puzzleland to escape the clutches of the evil Queen of Hearts. It’s also suitable for mixed gender groups.
    • Formula One – suitable for a boys only party, escape room teams try to escape from other Formula One drivers who want the energy recipe which is making your vehicles go faster. This room is also suitable for mixed groups.
    • Minecraft – based on the famous video game, Minecraft teams try to escape the evil Ender Dragon who wants her golden egg back.
    • Save the Planet and Save Nature – these educational escape rooms teach participants about climate change issues such as recycling, water conservation and endangered animals.
    • Spy Dome and Corporate Spy – team building escape rooms for corporate groups or high school students.

What our clients have said?

During the recent school holidays we set up escape rooms for a number of Out of School Hours (OOSH) Centre incursions. You only had to see the smiles on their faces as participants successfully escaped the rooms to know this unique event had the WOW factor.

Remember, our inflatables are not at a fixed address. They are mobile. So, in your planning remember that we bring the ultimate Escape Room to you!

6 Unique Event Ideas for Bouncing Back to School or Work

6 Unique Event Ideas for Bouncing Back to School or Work

Many schools and work places will bounce back to “almost normal” in coming months. After a year of Zoom conferences and online learning, and the summer holidays, how do you welcome them back?

Why not have a “Bounce back to School or Work” event? Here are some ideas:

1 Fun Run Obstacle Course

With names like the Adrenaline Rush, Ninja Warriors, and Toxic Shock, a fun run is an amazing way to help teams bounce back. Just look at the pictures on this link and you can see why they are amongst our favourite “WOW Factor” events.

2 Water Slides

A great way to bounce back to school in the summer months are our water slides. The incredible Log Jammer Extreme or smaller slides such as the Wave Crush or Jump N Splash will excite any audience.

In the cooler months try the dry slides such as the Ninja Warped Wall, the Screamer, or the giant Sabre Tooth Tiger dry slide.

3 Interactive Games

Another bounce back to school or work event are the interactive games. They are suitable for adults or children.

You can have a sports event which includes interactive inflatables such as the Soccer Shootout, Target Soccer and Footy Passing games, or the Basketball Shootout. We even have the Soccer Radar Challenge where the speed of your kick is measured with a radar gun. We also have a giant Soccer Dome for debriefing the activities.

Alternatively try our Mobile Escape Rooms where teams try to solve various activities to escape from Space Aliens, Enemy Spies or various other Villains. Schools will be interested in our Save the Planet and Save Nature escape rooms which provide learning about conservation, recycling and other environmental issues.

The Bungee Run and Hippo Chow Down are also fun and funny bounce back to work or school activities.

4 Jumping Castles

It doesn’t matter what age, everyone loves a jumping castle. Furthermore, for extra fun try a combo castle which has obstacles such as ladders and slides built in to add to the experience.

5 Mobile Video Gaming Trailer

This is a unique back to school or work activity. Instead of travelling to a fixed video gaming site, we bring our mobile video gaming trailer to you. Up to 20 players can enjoy over 70 video games in air conditioned comfort. All the major Play Station, Nintendo and Xbox games are available. Also, we supply a Video Gaming Ambassador to set up the games and assist the gamers to get started.

6 Charity Event

It’s amazing how raising funds for those less fortunate gets a school or work community together. Have a “Dunk the Teacher or Boss” activity with a Dunk Tank. Raise some more funds with carnival food sales.

Also, for even more fund raising ideas see our Blog.

The transparent igloo idea was just what he needed. It was a complete surprise to his girlfriend. An absolutely wonderful setting for a secret proposal.

Wedding and engagement party planners are finding the idea of an Inflatable Igloo offers a fantastic photo opportunity for pre and post event activities.

Successful Event Planning

Successful Event Planning

Successful event planning might be needed for a child’s birthday party, a company picnic, a child care centre celebration, a school fun day, a sports presentation or a major corporate event. Whatever it is, the same event planning principles will apply.

Bubbling With Energy have been assisting event planners such as parents, volunteers, social club secretaries, professional corporate event planners etc to plan all kinds of events for over 27 years.

Here are some event planning tips to make your next event successful.

What’s your plan?

The earlier you begin planning the better. In fact, from our experience the very best annual events are those where planning starts immediately after the last event.

Planning includes deciding on the event budget, purpose, who’s the audience, and marketing. It also covers what memorable activities will be booked, sponsorship, catering, and the venue.

The planning committee?

Don’t do it all yourself! Even for a family birthday or anniversary celebration you can delegate catering, greeting or cleaning duties to other family members. In fact, some people get annoyed when they are not asked!

Therefore, for larger events you need to develop and manage an enthusiastic committee of finance, marketing, volunteer coordinators, activity bookers, sponsor minders, etc.

Additionally, make sure you track your expenses and activities on an Excel spreadsheet or Project Planning tool.

Event activities

Successful Event Planning includes great activities. The memorable activities you book will depend on the purpose of the event, your audience, and whether it is an indoor or outdoor venue.

For instance, your purpose might be a fundraiser, a community fun day, a product or service brand activation or launch. It might also be a commemorative celebration, a themed activity, an exhibition, or even team building.

Indoor Activities

For indoor events consider entertainment such as roaming clowns, temporary tattoo artists (yes, they do wash off) or face painters.

Alternatively, if you are having a sports theme, Bubbling with Energy can also supply interactive games.  These include the inflatable basketball or soccer shootouts, football passing or the mini golf challenge.

Arcade games are also excellent indoor event ideas.

We also have small jumping castles which can fit into most indoor venues.

Outdoor Activities

For large corporate events and festivals and fetes, consider having carnival rides or a bank of dry or water slides and spectacular obstacles courses. Some of the latter include the Ninja Warrior Challenge (as seen on TV’s The Footy Show), the Extreme Fun Run, the Inflatable Maze, and the Toxic Shock Wipeout Challenge. These exciting names featured in your event advertising will attract visitors. They also add to the memorable experience every successful event planner seeks.

If you really want to go big try the Stunt Jump (yes, it’s a stunt pillow just like those used in high action TV shows or movies).

For school fun days, fundraisers, fetes and festivals consider hiring the famous Dunk Tank or Cash Grabber.

For smaller events, themed kids jumping castles such as Superhero and Disney inflatables are all the rage. They have theme names like World of Disney, Fairy Tale, Teenage Ninja Mutant Turtles, and Justice League.

For adult parties hire the Inflatable Pub, or one of our mechanical bucking bull type devices. The latter are particularly popular at hens and bucks parties and anniversaries.

Planning a Successful Event – Marketing Tips

  • Use every media possible including FaceBook, Instagram, Pinterest, Newsletters, school/parent notices. Ask a sample of potential event visitors how they like to hear about events and follow that advice?
  • Media releases should feature the purpose of the event. For example, if you are raising funds for “Koalas burned in recent bushfires”, feature that in your copy. News outlets will grab emotional content like that.
  • Ask your suppliers, sponsors, and the venue, to feature your event on their websites.
  • Provide copy (including pics) for the “What’s on in XXXX” type websites. Can you imagine how attractive a photo of the Stunt Jump, or one of our large inflatables, will be on those websites.
  • You marketing should continue right up until the event starts. If it is an annual activity, the marketing should continue beyond the event to advertise next year’s activity.

Here is a Forbes magazine article about Marketing Successful Events.

Event Feedback

After the event seek feedback so that you can honestly congratulate your event planning assistants, and also improve it next time.

Automate all the event information so that you don’t have to reinvent the wheel when looking for successful event activities in the future.

9 Unique Sports Club Presentation Day Ideas

9 Unique Sports Club Presentation Day Ideas

It’s nearing the end of the sports season and you need to organise the Sports Club Presentation Day. Your motto for this event should be “Don’t end it on a flat note!”


  1. You want the children who have joined your Club to come back for next year’s season. They are creatures of habit and will sign up year after year if they know there’s a great party at the end of the sporting season.
  2. Then there are your volunteer Coaches and Club officials. They put so much effort into the sports club “in season” activities. The Presentation Day event needs to be memorable so that they feel appreciated, and will put even more effort into the next season.
  3. Finally, you’ve got the parents. They need to see that they have placed their child in a vibrant Club which not only recognises talent, but is a friendly and fun place for their child to belong.

So how can you achieve top marks in those three “Why’s”?

The most successful Sports Club Presentation Days seem to be outdoor events in a park or a community hall with a grassed area beside it. So, you’ve got the trophies and/or certificates organised. An Emcee has been appointed, and an audio system is ready for the big day. But what can you add to give the WOW factor?

Bubbling With Energy has been in operation for over 27 years. It is one of the largest and most experienced entertainment hire companies in Australia. Let us share our experiences in hiring out “WOW factor” amusement devices to Sporting Clubs for their end of year Presentation Day events. Some of these ideas are also great for attracting new players on your club registration days.

1 Obstacle Courses Sydney

Sports Clubs are physical entities. So, some Clubs opt for the more physical inflatables in our Obstacle Courses range. These include devices such as the Extreme Fun Run, Adrenaline Rush, and the Toxic Radical Junior. The names reflect the physical nature of these inflatables.

Click the Obstacle Course descriptors here and you will see why they have the WOW factor.

2 Interactive Games Sydney

You may have seen Channel 9’s Footy Show hosts such as Paul Vautin, Erin Moran, and Darryl Brohman fight it out on some of our interactive games and obstacles such as the Toxic Wipeout, the Stunt Jump, and the ever popular Ninja Warrior Obstacle Course.

We also have Target Soccer and Footy Passing inflatables, the incredible Human Table Football Combo, and the Inflatable Sports Zone Arena. The latter comprises an inflatable indoor soccer arena, volleyball, basketball and twister. It’s a huge hit for all ages.

You can have the same activities at your Sports Presentation event. Click Sports Inflatables for more information and pictures of how these activities contribute to the WOW factor at your event.

3 Water Slides Sydney

When their Sports Club Presentation Day event is in the summer months, our Water Slides are a big hit. They have spellbinding names like our most popular slide called The Screamer, Wild Rapids, the gigantic Mammoth Mountain Drop, Aqua Rush, and the Log Jammer Extreme. Add our famous Dunk Tank to the event (get a favourite coach to be the “dunkee”) and you will have created a very memorable occasion. Club members will ask “Wow, how can they top that next season?”

In the cooler months our Dry Slides and Obstacle Courses such as the Adrenalin Rush, Large Monkey, Dual Lane, and Extreme Fun Run will add just as much WOW factor excitement to the event.

4 Jumping Castles Sydney

Every child loves a Jumping castle! We have a wide range to cater to all ages and sizes. They have catchy names like Jurassic, Jungle Adventure, Disney Frozen, Justice League, Cameron the Kiddipillar, and Spiderman.

Some of our castles such as the Red and Blue are “2 in 1”. They have a bouncing area as well as another feature such as a basketball hoop, a pop up, or a slide.

5 Junior Footy Club Events

Here’s another Sports Club presentation idea. Are you arranging an end of season club celebration, or mid season family fun day, or want to attract potential players to your registration day? Or, you may be a feeder school wanting to have a footy themed celebration.

Check out our new range of Rugby League Club footy themed jumping castles, 6 in 1 combo’s, and obstacle courses. As seen at many Club home games and fan days, you can choose themes aligned to Bulldogs, Dragons, Eels, Tigers, Panthers, Rabbits, Roosters and Sea Eagles. Just imagine you are a Penrith Panthers aligned junior club. So, you set up a Panther on the Prowl Obstacle Course and Junior Jumper jumping castle at your club pre season registration day. This is a great way to attract players and start the year off with excitement and fun.

6 Junior Soccer Club Events

We also have sports club presentation ideas for junior soccer clubs. Check out our range of soccer themed products. For your registration day, mid season family fundraiser, or presentation day, you can have the incredible inflatable soccer shootout, the giant soccer darts, billiard soccer, or even an indoor inflatable soccer arena. The latter is great because it’s fully enclosed and the balls just bounce off the walls, and not into neighbour’s gardens.

During the season, if you want to increase the speed and accuracy of your players kicks, hire the Soccer Radar Challenge. The player kicks the ball to the target, and our radar gun reads the speed. The display tells you how fast the ball was travelling. Also it can be used for cricket and baseball players.

Furthermore, for both footy and soccer fans we have inflatable target soccer and footy passing, and mini inflatable football passing activities.

If you are having a Gala Day, consider our 25m and 20m long inflatable soccer fields. We have two of each for hire. They are great for running separate events, and keeping spectators off the field of play. Hire all four and you can have a six a side game on one; a coaching clinic on another; a target shooting competition on another, and a goalie challenge on the fourth! Some clubs also hire the fields for soccer boot camps.

NOTE: Junior hockey clubs can use the same fields for their activities.

7 Optional Extras for your Sports Club Presentation Day

Add to the exciting atmosphere of your event with optional extras such as Carnival Food. These are sno cones, popcorn or fairy floss. We also have Party performers such as face painters, temporary tattoo artists, and a roaming clown.

8 Safety First

For all of these events we have trained professional staff who can set up and supervise your amusement hire. Our vehicles are tracked so we know where they are and can advise you if there is a slight delay. All our employees have a working with children check. For event organisers, we can even supply access to a video explaining proper safety procedures when using inflatables.

9 Promoting Your Sports Club Presentation Day Event

Imagine the excitement you can generate for your event if you advertise the names of some of the activities you will be using. The Screamer, Adrenaline Rush, the Ninja Warrior Obstacle Course are catchy names which will attract attention. Feature them in your newsletters and event advertising.

If you have company sponsors, we can feature their signage by “velcroing” it on our inflatable obstacle courses or jumping castles. Sponsors like to be appreciated and get some value for their money. This is an effective and easy way to do it.

A Final Note about your Sports Club Presentation Day

Remember that at the start of this Blog we said that for a successful Sports Club Presentation Day you need to take on the attitude of “Don’t end it on a flat note!” So, with the extensive examples above we hope you can see how you can achieve a WOW factor event that will keep your members signing up each year; recognise and appreciate your volunteers; and, ensure that parents know they have signed their child up to a vibrant, fun and friendly Club.
