“A thoroughly engaging program!  This is my 6th year as principal and 17th as an educator.  “Brain Challenge” is the best assembly I have ever seen.   My students are grades K-5 and this show captivated each and every one of the for the entire hour.  The questions were wonderfully age appropriate.  Yes, we are bringing them back next year!"

"Every year the students and parents love your show. I think it's terrific. How you can control a crowd of over 200 screaming kids amazes me. See you next year "

"Principal Frank Corrado at Roosevelt M.S. raved about your show 12 years ago and he was right.  From your lightning spelling round to your amazing 8th grade "Simon Sez," "Brain Challenge" has become a welcome annual event. It's easily the best school assembly I have ever come across."

After the show PTA's Catherine Dawkins said, "Holy Cow! This show was so totally awesome. My son called it 'epic.' It's the best family fun night we've ever had at this school. I'm getting terrific reviews."

PTA's Carolyn Simmons said, "Last year we had a different game show company. We weren't too happy with them. Another school told us how amazing your "Brain Challenge" Family Fun Night was."

Carnival Rentals

Hollyrock Entertainment provides customers with a variety of carnival party entertainment options. Carnival games can either be a game of skill or a game of chance. These games are typically seen at traveling carnivals, fund raisers, charity events, amusement parks, state and county fairs. Places with parties and around holidays see an influx with these sort of games. They are typically operated on a pay per play basis. These prices range from small, like 25 cents, to perhaps a few dollars. And fun prizes can be won. Stuffed animals and toys are the most popular prizes.

Types of Carnival Games

Games of Chance

These types of games are popular at a carnival, because of the random outcomes provided. It gives everyone involved a chance to win. The coin toss game is a perfect example. In this game, a coin, usually a dime or quarter, is tossed onto a horizontal board that has random marks on it. The marks are the same diameter as the coin that is being thrown.

The birthday game is also another prime example of this sort of game. This is when players picks designated months, colors and holidays and a random player is chosen to throw a die. Typically, players chose their own birthdays, because it is more fun that way. The die being thrown has the same months, colors and holidays written on all different sides. Whatever is shown on the face-up side wins. 

Games of Skill

These are games that test a player's particular skill at something. This could be hitting a target with a ball or weapon or shooting a basketball into a moving hoop. Some examples are the Cross Bow Shoot. the Milk Bottle game, and Balloon and Dart.

Other games of this type can test physical strength. One such game is the Rope Ladder Climb, when a player must keep their balance while climbing an angled rope ladder. This rope ladder can pivot and invert the player, making it difficult to keep their balance.At the end, the player must ring a bell to signify their win.
