Outdoor Foam Parties
What is a foam party? A foam party is a social event that your guests will dance to music covered in several feet of suds, bubbles, or foam as we call it! The foam is dispensed from our foam machine. There are a variety of locations that can work including grassy yards, parking lots, patios, sports courts, sandy areas, or poolside. Our foam parties are perfect for birthday parties, end of school events, summer camps, daycare centers, finish line at a race, night clubs, and any other reason to have a great time! We provide the first 2 bottles of liquid foam, a sound system for you to play music on, game coach, beach balls, and pool noodles. Plan on having a change of clothes, bathing suits, or towels available you will get wet!
We do recommend having access to water for all participants to be able to wash off. You will get wet!
Rules for Safety
While promoting your foam party and getting the word out, include safety information. Tell guests to leave electronic devices and cellphones at the coat check or in their cars. Advise party-goers that games such as “slip and slide” are not permitted because of potential collision and injury. While you might not implement a dress code, you may want to recommend that your guests wear protective footwear. Guests will likely get their feet stepped on so flip-flops are not an ideal choice. Don’t allow sliding and skidding.
While it is certainly tempting to have a quick slide or skid on the slippery floor, this can lead to collisions and neck or back injuries. For some reason guys also often feel the need to pick up the girls or even their own friends, but this could also be risky if the person doing the carrying slips and falls.
There is never any diving into a foam area allowed. To play it safe, put some rules in place to prevent people from getting too wild and purposely skidding on the floor or trying out other stunts.
Use plastic cups and plates. Because foam parties tend to get a little bit more rowdy than regular parties, it is not a good idea to use glass cups or plates that can shatter and leave sharp pieces on the floor. The foam will cover the evidence of a broken glass, which could cause others to cut their feet or ankles.

A Cleanup Plan
If you party is outside it will go away on its own or you can use a hose to wash it away. Party foam eventually turns into soapy residue, so have a cleanup plan prepared if your event is indoors. Ask a couple of people to volunteer to help clean after the party. Purchase a few mops and squeegees from your local supply store and plan to mop up all the water and residue to return the venue back to its pre-party condition. Cleanup may include bringing furniture back in and putting it in its place, removing protective plastic from certain areas, and reconnecting all plugs and extension cords. Rolling Video Games of New England will not be responsible for any clean up at the end of an event. Just like any soap product you will want to wash any residue from your body and cloths once you are done with your foam party.
