Washingtonian Bride & Groom Unveiled Wedding Showcase Recap

We had an amazing time as a production partner at the Washingtonian Bride & Groom Unveiled wedding showcase this past weekend in DC! It was such a pleasure to meet the different vendors present, and to provide furniture and decor for the event with the beautiful Mandarin Oriental hotel as the venue. We always love showcasing our inventory while meeting future brides to help them make planning their special day a little easier!

Olivia, one of Ampa’s Event Specialists, did a great job managing the 80’s theme with the new 20 foot diameter round bar, theme decor, lit go-go dancer platforms, lighting, and more. “Turning on all of the lights was like turning on a time machine back to the 80’s,” she said.

Product Spotlight: New Arcade Games!

Take a look at our fun, new arcade games that have been a hit at recent events! Games are a fantastic way to bring an exciting and interactive element to any social function. Our gaming supplies include a range of arcade and table games, carnival and casino games, inflatables, rock walls and more.

Play Back

Play Back Arcade Game

Memorize the light sequence and play it back. Reminiscent of classic memory games. Playback is now a 2 player head to head version with a score for each level that you complete. Make a mistake and you are out. How good is your memory?

Strike A Light Chaos

Strike-A-Light Chaos Arcade Game

Chaos combines the excitement of the Strike A Light reaction game with the twist of the lights being able to change color. Each player will try to hit lights corresponding with their color, which move around the board, creating chaos. Increase your throughput with 4 players in this adaptation.

Pluck A Duck Racing

Pluck A Duck Racing Arcade Game

While carefully removing the piece, should contact be made with the cutout, the magnet automatically turns off and the piece drops. This unique 2 player unit, has individual game timers so you can see who has that perfectly steady hand under the pressure of some friendly competition!

Top Doc

Top Doc Arcade Game

Top Doc takes a classic board game, and scales it up while adding a technology twist for greater appeal and improved game play. With Top Doc, the players wand is actually an electromagnet. So when the player touches the wand to a game piece, it automatically latches onto the wand and magnetizes. While carefully removing the piece, should contact be made with the cutout, the magnet automatically turns off and the piece drops. An audible beep is triggered along with a visual light, and the unit records the mistake on a large 3 inch LED display. Games are available in Easy, Medium, or Hard difficulty levels, and can be easily changed by swapping out the game pieces.
