By | ALL POST | No Comments

An UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE! 

FREEDOM FUN USA client, Amber, does Halloween in a bigger than life fashion – and who would have thought she would have time?!? With a husband, two great (and busy) kids, and four dogs, who has time to decorate for Halloween, right?  Well, Amber does!  And she shares it with all her neighbors!

Becoming an Austin Area Tradition: 

After several years of decorating in a BIG way, Amber decided to up the ante and added FREEDOM FUN USA’s Virtual Reality Haunted Experiences to help set the mood! What an easy way to create a truly haunting happening!  With games and experiences geared to young and old, this is a super fun way to create memorable Halloween fun.

THEN, Amber added a giant back yard movie screen surrounded by spooky ghouls and goblins.  FREEDOM FUN USA provides the age appropriate films and a gigantic movie screen for ghostly adventures and eerie sound effects!

What does this look like??  Well, you would have to see it in person for the full effect, of course, but pictures tell…..

What a great collaboration!  And certainly something that FREEDOM FUN USA can help YOU do too!  We offer Virtual Reality games and experiences to suit your event.  We have awesome Laser Tag games, some with seasonal themes and some that are great for year round fun.  And of course there’s the giant movie screen!  For those more active events, don’t forget about all our other SUPER FUN activities!  Check out our website (https://freedomfunusa.com/)AND our Pinterest Site (https://www.pinterest.com/freedomfunusa/) for all our FUN ideas!  Family, fun, friends…that’s what makes the world go ‘round!

Premier Event Company

Why Freedom Fun USA?

By | ALL POST, Laser Tag Birthday Parties & More | No Comments

All these “fun” event companies are the same, right??  Hmm, maybe not…..

Have you ever experienced an event that just fell flat?  It’s uncomfortable for the guests and stressful for the hosts! But there is an alternative – Austin’s premier event company, FREEDOM FUN USA, is here to help.

Reasons why we are different:

First, we have fun events like laser tag and archery tag, seriously fun activities like Bubble Ball, Bounce Castle, and Water Tag.  And MORE! Water Slide, Foam Parties, Archery Hover Ball that’s guaranteed fun in the sun for everyone!  Kids of all ages will have a great time!  THEN, there’s indoor activities like Virtual Reality!  And, oh my gosh, then there’s the Outdoor Movies packages!  And the holiday packages such as the Hot Cocoa Bar for winter events!  Whatever the weather, whatever you need, we can plan, organize, and deliver.

Second, we have coaches for every fun activity – our coaches set up the event, check and double check EVERYthing, and then ensure that every party attendee knows how to play the games, has working equipment, and joins in the fun.  The host can relax and join in the fun!

Which brings me to Item Three 😊  The host chooses from multiple levels of planning and organizing – we have budget packages and we have concierge packages.  The hosts tell us what their budget and event needs are, and then we make it happen.

Next, our team is focused on service and communication – we communicate with the host so that everyone is on the same page.  We want to do everything possible, humanly and otherwise, to make your event a success for you and for your guests.

Finally, our team occasionally encounters unforeseeable difficulties, such as a blow out on the highway (yikes!)  If this makes them late to an event, well, let’s just say, HUSTLE is our mantra!  Our coaches HUSTLE to make it happen – they will not allow ANYthing to get in the way of success for your party!

What does this mean for you?

You get to be an informed client – you know when we are coming, how much it will cost, and what package you will be presenting to your guests, all ahead of time.

You get to call the shots – the level of service, the package that fits your budget, your party and event needs, whatever they may be.

You get a trained and caring coaching team – our team has been trained to maintain cleanliness and comfort standards, how to set up and take down quickly and effectively, and how to ensure you and your guests are more than happy and having some serious fun.

You get a company that is dedicated to making your event as perfect as possible.

What does this mean for us?

We are a family company that wants to serve other families.  We are here to seriously create fun, joy, and great memories for families and friends.  Your success is our heartbeat.  We are honored to be a part of your event, whatever the plan, whatever the package.  Thanks for the opportunity to be a part of your celebration!

OUTDOOR MOVIES ARE COOL!  FIND OUT WHY! 

Outdoor Movie Night With Your Favorite Films

Outdoor Movie nights are always fun – whether it’s scary movies (that make us keep a light on when we go to bed) or a romantic comedy that makes everyone believe in magic or an adventure film that allows us all to feel like heroes.

But a night at the movies with FREEDOM FUN USA is another thing altogether!  It all begins with the larger than life movie screen – WOW! There are no bad seats in this house!  Then there is the sound system – giant sound to go with the giant screen!  Do movies make you crave snacks? Well, we can provide popcorn machines, cotton candy machines, snow cone machines, and even cold drink options!

And, of course, the concierge service

Our team members are trained, motivated, and concentrating on customer satisfaction.  Every one of our team understands that our success depends on making sure all aspects of the event go smoothly, that the host is never worried or stressed out, and that the guests are engaged in the event having the time of their life. The quality of our service has earned us contracts with the City of Cedar Park and other cities. The City of Cedar Park has an outdoor movie open to the public every month of the summer. You can check out the “Secret Life of Pets” and “Dumbo” during the month of September this year. The movies in the park website is located at Movies in the Park | City of Cedar Park

We are there to make sure your outdoor movie nights are perfect

If there’s something out of place, we will fix it.  If you need something to be a bit this way or that, we can handle that too.  Our job, our goal, our purpose is to make sure every guest is comfortable, happy, and enjoying the show AND that you, the host, are relaxed and enjoying the event as much as your guests.

Every step of the way, your well being and comfort is our focus.  One of our reviews explains:

Team Building Corporate Events

Awkward Or Awesome? Our Corporate & Company Events Will Astound Leaders And Participants

By | ALL POST, Corporate Events | No Comments

Another awkward ice breaker?!?

Have you ever been to a meeting or activity and then accosted by the ridiculously awkward ice breaker or team building game?  I’ve been to many, and believe me, I felt both awkward and ridiculous.  Then, if I’m being honest, I’ve led a few of those games, and even though I knew I would hate participating, I did it anyway.  Why? Because that’s what we are supposed to do, right?

Another awkward ice breaker

Well, not necessarily….

Having amassed hours and hours of ice breaker and team building participation, I came up with a different solution to creating cohesion and enthusiasm.  When I began FREEDOM FUN USA, I was looking at the company as a party or event piece.  That quickly evolved into a menu of event options including games, multiple levels of coaching and planning, and guiding clients to a stress-free experience.  As I coached and helped clients through games and events, I realized something: wouldn’t this make a fantastic team building activity.  Even birthday party games such as laser tag, archery tag, bubble ball, and foam fun, drew the adults into the fun along with the kids.  So, I initiated a corporate version of FREEDOM FUN’s games and activities.

Wow! What a result!

Not only were we able to avoid those awkward moments with participants staring at the floor, we created an experience that allowed people to laugh, connect, and experience the joy of being part of a real team encounter.  Laughter and fun are amazing learning tools – participants seamlessly merge into a team built by natural ability, personal experiences, and knowledge.  Leaders quickly observed each participants’ strengths, but perhaps more importantly, participants learned their own strengths and could build on them; they also realized their own areas for improvement and how to maximize their abilities.

Be your company hero: 

Plan your next team building day with FREEDOM FUN and give your company’s people an event they will remember!  Enrich your employees’ lives with experiences and education they can apply to their professional development as well as all the other aspects of their lives.  We can help you develop not only the event, games, and activities, but we can help you plan pre and post questions, discussion prompts, and team construction guidelines.  Give us a call today at 512-981-5557 and let’s brainstorm!

The right attitude by Freedom Fun USA

The Right Attitude By Freedom Fun USA

By | ALL POST, Events | No Comments

Just the other day,

The team was talking about how they noticed that events and coaches directly affected the participants’ moods, attitudes, and even behavior. Of course, that led to a discussion about why it’s so important for coaches and team members to have a positive outlook, a cheerful demeanor, and a “customer is always right” or “we can fix this” kind of attitude. No matter what!

Without even realizing it.

Tim shared a moment from one of his early experiences that was so simple and yet so profound that it made him understand that he was in the business of events and entertainment, but also in the business of giving people a chance to be better, to be more.

So, Tim was coaching a Laser Tag event in a large, open space in a park. The event was a celebration of an eleven year old’s birthday. The birthday boy was clearly having an amazing time, running around, laughing, and generally having fun. The Mom had made a point of telling Tim how great it was that the team showed up on time, delivered what they promised, and allowed her to relax and enjoy her son’s birthday. That was fantastic in itself – Tim sees each event as an opportunity to deliver on a promise and go the extra mile.

After Laser Tag was over, and the team was packing up, one of the Dads walked over to Tim and introduced himself. The Dad told Tim that he had been dreading this birthday party ever since his wife had told him it was his turn to go with their son. The Dad had been to multiple parties over the past 10 or so years with the son and found that standing around talking to parents he didn’t know was just excruciating. Smiling and talking, eating cake and finally trying to get his little boy into the car when he didn’t want to go were apparently just misery to the poor guy. So he was not happy to be at this event.

Then something amazing happened – the enthusiastic coach, the genuinely fun games, being outside, and, most of all, having his son yell, “come on, Dad, play with us,” allowed all the guests, adults and kids alike, to play. Playing together, being outdoors, laughing, and being silly created a wonderful event for all, but also a chance to bond and enjoy the company of friends and loved ones. The man shook Tim’s hand, said thank you for the great memories, and he and his son went home.

Tim, however, stood there for a few minutes, thinking about his business. He had started this business to fill a need in the community and to earn a living. He had wanted his family to be proud and to live up to certain standards. But there, in the park, he realized that it was so much more.

Tim shared a moment from one of his early experiences that was so simple and yet so profound that it made him understand that he was in the business of events and entertainment.
