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.

Clad in specially commissioned armour, featuring the very latest in skin replication techniques and fully armed to the teeth, the Area 51 Troll is one bad-ass creature. He features a remote-control moving head, blinking eyes, a frowning forehead and moving lips that are synched up to the performer's headset microphone to give the troll a big booming voice.
