Planning a children's party and looking
for something extra special? The
answer is simple--call George Bryant
at
Shady Oaks Amusements. Since
1980, the Bryant family has delighted in
delivering an incredible range of indoor
and outdoor inflatables, games, and
rides to events big and small throughout
Northern Virginia.
Having grown up on a farm, George
used to ride horses, so he followed the
natural path of providing pony rides at
area events. When he witnessed the
popularity of a moonbounce at one
such event, an idea sparked in his mind.
But what sealed the deal for George
was paying thousands of dollars for
amusements at a party he was hosting--
and the company never showed up!
The Bryant family launched Shady Oaks
Amusements and never looked back.
Thirty-eight years later, they still abide
by the Golden Rule of treating others the
way they would want to be treated. For
George, that means standing by his word
of charging an honest price, showing up
on time at the event with the promised
products, and ensuring they are used
safely. This has resulted in a broad and
loyal customer base--one of his clients
dates back 31 years, and just booked
the company for next year as well!
The selection of available amusements
is astounding. If your little one is having
a themed birthday party, designer
moonbounces from many of your
favorite Disney and Pixar movies (The
Little Mermaid, Finding Nemo etc.) are
on hand. Older kids (and adults!) enjoy
inflatables and obstacles that test their
speed and agility. Mechanical ride
offerings include swings, a mini Ferris
wheel, "Pirate's Revenge" (a swinging
boat), a deluxe mechanical bull, and
more. Inflatable slides, themed water
slides and other water games, climbing
walls, and sports inflatables are popular
too.
And if playing all these games gives
guests an appetite, the company even
Shady Oaks Amusements:
"You Bring the Kids, We Bring the Fun!"
offers concessions! For a flat price, they
provide the equipment and supplies to
make hot dogs, cotton candy, popcorn,
and even Hawaiian shaved ice--in 42
flavors!
Although Shady Oaks Amusements'
selection is remarkable, what goes
on behind the scenes is even more
impressive. Safety is the top priority, and
in the company's entire history--which
includes tens of thousands of events,
there has never been an accident. This is
thanks to the highly trained supervisors
who tend to the games and ensure their
safe use, as well as to the inventory itself.
Each piece of equipment is thoroughly
inspected after each use; once it begins
to show signs of wear, it's disposed
of and replaced with a new piece. In
addition, units are power-washed and
sanitized after each use, and everything
is stored in climate-controlled buildings.
And of course, the company maintains
comprehensive insurance policies on all
equipment.
Customer satisfaction is imperative,
but once again, safety comes first.
George recalls that prior to the heavy
winds experienced in the area this past
March, he called a client to tell her that
they would have to postpone the event,
which included a monster truck, due to
safety concerns. The client offered to
pay double the price, but he told her it
wasn't a question of money--he simply
wouldn't risk anyone's safety.
George points out that Shady Oaks
Amusements is one of very few in the
industry that doesn't ask for a deposit.
This may occasionally result in clients
canceling events due to weather, but he
doesn't have an issue with that. "I don't
want payment unless we've earned it,"
George says. This philosophy is likely
what has led to ongoing word-of-mouth
referrals over the years.
Safety, reliability, affordability, and fun.
Shady Oaks Amusements has it all! To
learn more, call
(703) 361-1100.
