OSTRICH RIDERS

Area 51’s giant ostriches are among our longest established and most popular characters, and for good reason. The sight of the world’s largest avian strolling around, with talkative safari explorer at the reigns, provides an unbeatable comedy moment.

A festival regular, this curious pair has also delighted crowds at a range of other events, from weddings to zoo events, clubs to corporate dos – it seems its popularity has not yet peaked…

Alternative riders available include our “TIKI” costumed characters, snow explorers, elves, or even chimps, or Jockeys, making them extremely easy to have adapt to any theme.

MUMMIES

MUMMIES Horribly hilarious – raised from the Dead, these tomb-dwelling terrors are great fun for Halloween or Egyptian themed events. We’ve even sent our Mummies all the way to Dubai where they terrorised visitors for 6 weeks in a walkthrough experience we built in Ibn Battuta Mall. If you'd like your Mummies even taller, then it would be a shame to disappoint. The firm’s hideous new supersized Mummies are now on offer so there's truly no escape from the curse of the undead. Satisfaction guaranteed – or your Mummy back!
