The ubiquitous dunk tank, seen in carnivals and fairs across the United States, is being introduced to Aussies by an enterprising Sydney business man who is making quite a splash with his dunk tank rental service.
Online PR News – 26-November-2010 – – Sydney Dunk Tanks is introducing traditional fun and excitement, Yankee style, to parties, carnivals, picnics, corporate events and fund raising efforts across Sydney by renting out dunk tanks imported directly from the United States. A dunk tank is an attraction that consists of a large tank of water, over which a seat is situated. An individual is placed on the seat, and participants attempt to "dunk" the individual by striking a target which when hit will release the seat and drop the individual into the tank of water. Typically, the participant must hit a distant target by employing a projectile, such as a ball.
Dunk tanks are often rented for events where participants are charged for the chance to dunk a volunteer. These events are typically fund-raising in nature, and the money raised by the dunk attraction would be donated to a worthwhile cause. Dunk tanks are not relegated to fund raising events; in fact, many employ dunk tanks to provide entertainment, and participants are not charged a fee for taking turns in attempting to dunk the volunteer. Youthful exuberance, particularly at college parties, often means that dunk tanks are featured prominently, and participants, typically men, would pay for a chance to dunk an attractive lady into the icy waters below.
Sydney Dunk Tanks realizes that kids can partake in dunk tank fun as well.
