Their outdoor media promotions consist of different designs. They have a giant balloon where you can blast the message across, such as when you have a huge sale coming up. The giant red tag can easily attract passersby because of how huge and striking the balloon color is. If your goal is to catch the kids’ and adult’s attention alike, you can’t go wrong with sky dancers. Towering high and swaying endlessly in the sky, preferably to the tune of the latest dance craze, you are sure to bring the house down. Personally, I like to have at least two on both sides of my house. It is entertaining and stress relieving, just watching them dance in different directions. Rock Rental also has a giant blue gorilla which is equally eye-catching, giving the kids quite a bit of a scare from afar, but just as effective in capturing the interest of walk-in customers and entertaining people around. My most favorite of all is the giant Santa Claus. It is 20’ tall and 12’ wide so you can’t miss it. It’s certain to lift the holiday spirit and it’s a nice touch to your store’s holiday sale or even company or business events.
These inflatables may be targeted for outdoor media promotions but that should not stop you from renting it for your own personal use, like when you want to make your birthday or company parties, family reunions and school events extra special. Feel free to check out the pricing and availability of these rentals at www.rockrental.com and be amazed with their other inflatable options.
If you are in the San Diego, Imperial, Alpine, Orange, San Bernardino, El Cajon and, surrounding areas, Rock Rentals is your best bet if you want to experience fun and safe mechanical bulls on inflatables. This service of theirs comes with an adult staff that will ensure customers’ safety while using the equipment. The operator takes control of the motor – they adjust the speed, change the directions and operations and perform a quick stop when things get a little out of hand for the rider.
Rock Rental is also different from its local competitors because of the separate controlling options for the bulls. This means the operator can just buck the bull and not spin or just spin with a fast or slow buck. This method is unlike other machines that have predictable movements like simply spinning left and right and the up and down motions. Mechanical bulls are not fun unless they are dynamic and unpredictable. This feature adds to the intensity of the challenge. We like feeling the suspense of holding on to the saddle and gliding our body to the sudden jolts and spins. We get carried away as the machine abruptly moves from one direction to the next. We share a laugh or two as we nearly get thrown off the bull and our hearts pound violently when we finally do.
Next time you want to plan a party, consider getting a mechanical bull. Your friends will love you for it and you won’t regret it. If you are in the San Diego area, look for Rock Rental, www.rockrental.com. They have amazing mechanical bulls, plus so much more, that will surely put more spin on your typical parties.

The same can be said for most school setups. Kids as early as in grade school or middle school constantly have their smartphones close at hand as soon as they are outside of the classroom. Friends gather for some after school drinks or snacks but can hardly keep their eyes off their Facebook feed or Instagram photos. Even during what are supposedly fun school events like Halloween and Christmas parties, fall festivals, high school prom, and 10th-year reunions, people are still glued to their devices. They attempt to capture the fun through taking pictures but end up achieving the opposite because they have lost the moments as they happened. Rarely do I see people literally getting on their feet to jump up and down, dance, laugh out loud, sweat out, have genuine interactions with people around and truly enjoy the company of their schoolmates, friends and loved ones. It is plain old having FUN.
Rock Rental delivers to the majority of San Diego, Imperial, Alpine, Orange, San Bernardino, El Cajon and surrounding areas within 100 miles of their warehouse in Alpine. You can call them up for quotations, especially if you live farther. They also set up the equipment for you, and for some products like a rock wall, Quad Pod, and a mechanical bull, they come with an adult staff to supervise.

Adults will surely enjoy the rock climbing walls, especially for the sporty type. The mechanical bulls are always a source of endless laughter, for both young and old. I can see my workmates bonding over the obstacle course or inflatable sports game, instead of our usual improvised parlor activities and old board games. The water attractions such as the dunk tank, inflatable water slides, and walking balls would certainly take our simple summer pool outings up a notch.
Whether you rent a single bouncer or combine two to three of Rock Rental’s services, you are guaranteed to turn your simple, hard to pull off party into a stress-free, memorable one. All you need to care for are the food and drinks. Throw in your party invitations and reservations and you should be good to go. You can surely see yourself sitting back, relaxing, and actually having fun yourself, not just your guests. Yes, such is a possibility. Head on over to www.rockrental.com and get your party started!

And yes, disasters happened. The Winnie the Pooh mascot got lost on his way, causing a delay in the program, my son was super fussy and eventually slept through more than half of his own party; my baker seemed to have rushed baking the birthday cake, cupcakes and lolly cakes because the Lalaloopsies turned out looking dull and creepy, and some of the guests we were expecting did not arrive any more. This list does not include the hardship we went through preparing all the food from scratch, doing a general cleaning of the whole house, and managing the entire party place with twenty rowdy kids running around, spilling drinks and knocking over furniture all around. It is four to five hours of trying to keep everything together with that barely there smile on your face as you hop from one table to another, answering questions about your kids and sharing their funny stories and milestones. It is what it is. Party planning, and hosting, is an invitation to stress and pressure. The result is always rewarding, though. Laughter fills the place, there is great food everywhere, kids are amazed by their curated loot bags and music plays on till after dark. Good memories are again made.
At the end of the party, when we are starting to pick up the mess, the real, sincere smile starts to form on my face. My kids are exhausted, but they still have a tiny bit of energy to open their gifts and play with them. They rejoice as they find one that they particularly like. When they are up for it, they give me a hug and a kiss, and the sweetest “Thank you, mommy” a kid could mutter. It is then that you know - it is worth it.
Will I go through the same hassles again next year? My partner and I would always say nope, let us just rent a place and have food catered and rent all the party equipment that we would need. It will cost us more, but this will surely save our sanity. To be honest, I am not averse to the idea at all. Finances have kept us from going that route. But who knows, it just might be the best choice for our next big event, like my daughter’s 7th birthday or my son’s grade school graduation.
In this day and age, when technology continues to outdo the latest forms of entertainment, it’s hard to determine what will make a party a hit to our hard to please little ones. Party rentals and event organizers can do all the thinking and doing for you. It might be worth a shot as I am already running out of ideas, and patience, when it comes to pleasing my own children. Next time around, I just want to be able to sit around and watch over them, without having to worry whether they and the guests are still entertained or not. That shouldn’t be so hard to do, right?
It creates confidence and the ability to adapt and overcome difficult circumstances.
Overcoming fear is a life skill integral to success. Whether it’s fear of the unknown, fear of getting started or fear of failure, all successful adults learn as kids that you must be courageous, bold and daring to make something of yourself in this world. Kids should leave their comfort zones and confront their fears while building a mindset of, “I can do this”. Ascending the wall and rising above the ground is a great reward for taking a chance, overcoming nerves, and escaping the dreaded “comfort zone”.
Rock climbing promotes healthy life choices.
Ever seen an obese rock climber? Ever encountered a two-pack-a-day smoker at the climbing wall? Well, it is not a common sight. Rock climbing loves agility, flexibility, muscular strength and muscular endurance. It hates obesity, laziness and, weakness. Climbers are typically healthy eaters and cross-train in all sorts of other activities—from cycling and yoga to dancing and surfing. To be a successful climber, you’ve got to eat well, drink lots of fresh water and build a long, lean muscular body. Being fit and strong goes a long way to be able to climb a rock wall. Getting your kids climbing will give them a reason to trade sugary soda drinks for fresh water and the cell phone game for a strenuous walk through the country. Parents must realize and promote the importance of healthy activities and the rock wall is one great choice the kids will love!
Rock climbing is an adventure sport that can be learned at relatively low risk in highly controlled environments.
For better or worse, climbing has a reputation as an extreme sport. While that’s certainly true of the sport’s elite professionals, most climbing is as safe as jogging a lap around the track. Beginner climbers learn on a top rope (the rope is run through an anchor above the route of ascent). Falling on a top rope has basically zero consequences when using the correct anchors and belaying techniques; the length of the fall is roughly equal to the dynamic give of the rope and the climber’s weight—or, practically speaking, a few millimeters. Biking, football, roller skating, surfing, etc. are all far more dangerous than rock climbing. In my younger years, I had fun in all those sports, and climbing has always been the easiest to teach and fast to learn. This makes climbing truly unique in the adventure sports world—you can learn the ropes (pun intended) without risking major injury.
It teaches discipline and focus.
Climbing is an excellent way to impart the basics of discipline because it requires focus and discipline to succeed. There’s no multitasking or messing around when you’re climbing a vertical rock face. Your kids will quickly learn that climbing takes their full undivided attention. No matter what’s going on around them, astute focus on the task at hand and the discipline to see it through is thrust on them from the very moment they plant their first foothold. Those that lack the ability to pay attention will learn that it can be overcome when they find themselves hanging 10 feet off the ground and gravity in full force.
And it teaches lifelong outdoor skills like knot tying, route finding, coiling ropes, rappelling, etc.
Rock climbing’s hard skills are applicable across the spectrum of outdoor sports. Knot tying, along with analysis of terrain and weather, lays the foundation of an outdoor education. Learning to read vertical rock makes basic route finding all the easier. Anchor building and rappelling are critical rescue skills. Your kids may gravitate to back-packing, skiing or sailing in their later years, but when their skill set begins with rock climbing it’ll remain with them for a lifetime.
Introducing the child’s birthday party or classroom of children to a mobile rock climbing wall in the afternoon can be had at a bargain price. Our portable rock walls average $200 per hour with a two-hour minimum. We bring the party (rock wall) to you. We are fully insured and provide a professional staff member. One of the comments we hear often is from the parents. They realize that their kids break through their fear of heights. It may take an hour or two but eventually, the kids ascend the wall and some make it to the top. This experience is a first for many and for some is a lifelong memory.
Climbing provides a healthy dose of humility.
Yes, I like probably you, shower my children with love, attention and positive reinforcement. However, it’s critical to their character development that occasionally they fall on their butt. So much of climbing is falling, failing and learning to persevere. It’s important to show your kids how powerful Mother Nature can be. That summiting even a short 20-foot rock outcropping can take every ounce of mental and physical ability they have—and that at some point in life we’ll all be humbled before Her power. But learning to persevere in the face of failure is a life lesson that will pay for itself over and over again, long past the day your kids start having kids.
The bottom line: Climbing is “super fun.”
To wrap it up, I conducted exhaustive research straight from many that have climbed our rock walls. I hear over and over when asked, “what do you like about climbing”. The common answer summed up is, “It’s scary yet super fun! ” This response always makes my day.
So there you have it. You may not care about the healthy lifestyle climbing promotes or all the intangibles your kids will learn from it, but you can’t deny that being a kid ought to be fun, and climbing is super fun. So seize the day before it is too late and go have a good time with your child (while they are still young enough to want to have fun with you). You will regret if you don’t!
