School Fete Specialists

Geelong Amusement Hire has over 30 years of experience in the amusement industry. School events are a large part of our business, and we are happy to help schools get their gatherings off the ground with our commission or school fete rides for hire packages.

We’re happy to offer a full event management solution for your school. From school fete ideas, amusement hire and organizing refreshments to providing bathroom facilities, we will take care of everything. Our team doesn’t just offer school fete rides for hire – we give you peace of mind and allow you to have a stress-free event experience.

We are proud innovators in the amusement industry, and we are excited to be the first amusement company to be able to offer our school clients our new online ticketing solution. This lets us take all the pressure and responsibility off your next presale campaign. For more information, check out the online ticketing page.

Geelong Amusement Hire is your one stop amusement shop.

Outright Hire or Commission Hire

Geelong Amusement Hire offers you 2 choices for your school fete:

  • Outright Hire: You hire the rides outright and keep all of the takings; or
  • Commission Hire: A commission agreement with no upfront costs (conditions apply)

Outright Hire

If you wish to secure our school fete rides for hire outright, simply make a list of which rides you require and then call, email, or fill in our online enquiry form. We will get back to you as soon as possible with the cost of our school fete rides for hire.

Commission Hire

We started offering commission packages 20 years ago to schools that did not have a school fete ride hire and organisational budget to start with. Then we found that after getting their fetes off the ground, they would then have the confidence to move forward and start with a budget for their next fete.

Firstly, the date is the most important aspect. Thus, please have a few options available to you when discussing your date. Once a date has been agreed upon, it is then time to choose a ride package. Once we agree to a ride package, it is then time to agree on a financial arrangement. We offer the school 20% of the gross ride takings. Also the school has the option to staff the ticket box, or we can handle that as well.

Again, this is just a quick overview and our staff are happy to answer any further questions.

Wristbands and how they work

We have been offering wristband packages for over 20 years. Over this period we have fine-tuned and refined our formula so all of our customers will get the maximum return from their sales.

Where do we start?

You first need to set a pre-sale price for your wristbands. The ideal price for this is to be determined by the value of the ride package (we can advise you on this).

It is desirable for the wristbands to be advertised for sale at least 6 weeks prior to the date of the Fete. The cut off period for the presale should be the Monday prior to the Fete. Wristbands would then next be on sale on the day of the fete, but at a higher cost (this cost will depend on the price of the presale). Single ride tickets would also be sold on the day at a price that is acceptable.

This is meant to be a quick overview of the process only – if you would like more information please contact our office and our friendly office staff will be able to answer any questions that you may have. We can also help you come up with excellent school fete ideas that are sure to make for a great event.
