The days when you could order a few strong drinks, hire a venue and expect all the adults at a party to have fun are coming to a close. Whether it's for a corporate event or other kind of adult party, be it a family get togeather or a birthday, entertainment for the guests often takes on a greater meaning. At a lot of adult parties these days you may need to consider children, as more and more people like to have kid fruiendly events. These are of course events that kids are brought along, rather than left at home with a babysitter.
Clowns and magicians and even face painters have moved into the adult party arena, as have dodgem cars, paintball shooting, ten-pin bolwing and the like. Pony riding and animal farms don't seem to be too popular with many adults, although wildlife shows are making inroads into the adult party arena. This is especially true for adult reptile shows in Melbourne, where it is now possible for the guests of honour to be seen holding a python or cuddling a crocodile. Not all companies will let the guests hold the animals so it is important to check when booking a reptile display to see if they do in fact allow handling of the animals by the guests or audience. If you can get people handling the reptiles, it's always important to have a camera on hand. Corprate parties and functions will commonly have a professional photographer on hand who will give people photos of themselves and the animals at the end of the night. Other wildlife also is seen at parties, the most popular being the frogs, which seem to evoke little in the way of fear from anyone. While people typically associate frogs with jumping away from people, the tame ones seen at reptile shows and reptile party events usually don't jump. They got over that idea long ago! With safety as a critically important consideration, a reptile party is also safe in that all on hand are either non-venomous or sugically made that way. In Australia, only one company has the expertise to have surically devenomized deadly snakes, while the rest are now prohibited under safety laws from displaying venomous species.
