Bring an Unforgettable Experience to your Next Event
A unique and 100% interactive, fun activity that will surely be all the buzz among your guests.
Whether we are the main attraction or an interactive station, your participants
will make memories, practice balancing, get exercise, and have fun while
learning something new with friends.
Prior to lessons, we like to include a brief 3-minute recreational stilts demonstration
to demonstrate running, jumping, and intermediate-level tricks.
The interactive try-out activity allows for about 5 people per hour to:
- Be outfitted with protective pads and a helmet
- Put on stilts from a perfectly elevated bench
- Learn how to stand and walk on stilts
- Practice for a few minutes with a partner as spotter
- Get personalized tips and pointers
- Learn basic jumping (if they have good balance)
Each person gets between 10-20 minutes on stilts.
