Sometimes you don’t need to recreate the wheel to entertain your fans. This spotlight is simple and effective….and inexpensive.

These inflated chairs have two significant improvements over the folding chair variety.

1. Scale – These chairs are simply bigger and funnier looking. The majority of your fans are 100 feet or more from the action of this contest, and these chairs make all the action bigger.
2. Softer – Inflatable chairs are much more forgiving for your fans or mascots to jump around on. This allows the contestants to be a little more active and animated when they hustle for the last seat.

This is a great promotion to have in your inventory, also for a few reasons.

  • It’s inexpensive. A time out can use as few as 4 chairs or a short half-time can be done with 10-12 chairs.
  • This promotion packs up small when not inflated.
  • Flexibility. Perfect for a time out, inning break or intermission break. It can also be stretched into a half-time for basketball in a pinch.
