Looking for a fun idea for your night on the party bus? How about an 80’s themed party! Use neon colors, acid wash denim, and popped collars, plus make-up and hair in the 1980’s was on the big, bright, and obnoxious side. 

80s theme on the Ultimate Party Bus

Costumes – There are so many options for costumes, from mall rat to 80’s rocker to the Material Girl. Check out these 80’s DIY costume ideas

Signature Cocktail – If your party will be adults consider serving an 80’s signature drink. For more ideas on that read here.

The cool thing about the 80’s was that people had a lot of hair to work with. The 70’s trend of growing out your hair, combined with the inventions of mousse and gel, made for some totally awesome hair styles.

Big Bangs – Madonna may have been the instigator of this trend, teasing out those bangs and loading them up with hair spray, mousse, and gel to make her forehead look like a drive-in movie theater!

Highlights – Frosted tips were hot in the 1980’s. We’re talking Billy Idol here people, be sure to gel it out big too.

Banana Clip – These were popular for about 5 minutes in 1986 and are an easy way to make your hair seem bigger than it is, which was pretty much the whole point of the 80’s.

Scrunchies – Hair scrunchies, basically a fabric covered elastic band for your hair and perfect for making a Side Ponytail like Deb’s from Napoleon Dynamite. No instructions necessary.

Music – For the music you can get inspiration from online playlists and also ask your friends to recommend a few of their favorites.

Ultimate Party Bus Checklist

April 7, 2014 by   Filed Under: Party Bus Blog | Tagged:

We know how important a special night out can be and we want our customers to have a great time on board the Ultimate Party Bus. We’ve put this checklist together to help you make the most of your night out on the town. Our representatives are always happy to help, if you have a special request of idea let us know and we’ll try our best to accommodate!

  • Get a final headcount and let us know how many are in your party.
  • Write out a detailed itinerary and remember the Ultimate Party Bus is a full size motor coach! It’s going to take longer for the bus to get between stops and we have to stick to major roads.
  • Double check the itinerary we provide to make sure all of the addresses, contact numbers and times are correct.
  • Let us know about any special requests or needs, such as microphone, extension cords, tailgating needs, etc.
  • Confirm pickup and drop off locations with your guests. We recommend telling your guests and earlier time than the scheduled departure so that you know your even can start on time.
  • Check with any scheduled destinations in advance for any dress code requirements and be sure to communicate this to your guests. Also remind everyone not to forget their ID’s.
  • If you are having guests bring drinks remind everyone about this. If you are providing all beverages we recommend having everything ready in bags or boxes to load easily onto the bus. If you are providing beer it’s a great idea to have a separate cooler for this.
  • Prepare any food you will be bringing on board. Remember this is a moving vehicle so stick to small, non-greasy finger foods.
  • If you plan on showing a slide show or picture presentation during your trip email that to us in advance so we can confirm compatibility.

Things to remember on the night of your event:

  • Music (CDs, DVD, iPod, phone or flash drive all work great. You can also set up play lists online but remember to bring backup just in case!)
  • Camera and extra batteries
  • Flash drive with any pictures or slide shows
  • Party favors

Custom Music Videos!

The Ultimate Party Bus offers top of the line multimediaThe Ultimate Party Bus offers top of the line multimedia and we would like for you to take full advantage of that! With touch screen computers, 4 big screen high definition televisions and a state of the art sound system one way to make a special night go from ordinary to extraordinary is with a custom music video to commemorate your event. Music video slide shows take advantage of the multimedia available on board and add an extra personal touch that is perfect for birthdays, anniversaries, corporate events and other milestones. For a birthday party you can show the story of a person’s life in pictures, for a wedding you can tell a love story, for a prom you can have pictures of all the kids or use baby pictures and let everyone guess who the baby grew up to be! For corporate events you can use promotional materials, company images and logos to make it a true brand experience.

If you would like to create your own, it’s not so hard to do. First you’ll want to gather photos. It’s great if you can include pictures of the people who will be watching the slide show too! Just be sure to avoid pictures that are small or blurry. For every 5 minutes of music you’ll want to have about 100 pictures.

For instructions on how to create a video slide show with windows media center click here. There are many different programs that you can use to make a slide show, you can start by searching online to find one that works right for you or that might already be installed on your computer.

Don’t have the time to make your own slide show? We can help! We offer complimentary music slide show videos with all paid reservations including one song and up to 100 pictures. You just provide the photos and the music and we do the rest.

For a Free Custom Music Video that you can show on the party bus here are the steps:

  1. Book a reservation. Get a quote here or call us at 877-766-3817.
  2. Gather photos. We recommend having approximately 100 photos per 5 minute song. Make sure that the photos are not grainy or very small so that they show up well. Remember they will be showing on large 42″ high definition televisions! Number your photos in the order that you would like them to appear. For example, the first photo that you would like to show should have a file name of 1, the second should be named 2 and so on. If the order of the pictures can be random then the file names don’t need to be in any particular order.
  3. Upload. We will create a place for you to upload your photos and music online. You just place the files there and we will be able to take over from there.
  4. You’re done! We do the rest of the work and on the night of your event you will have a keepsake DVD that will be yours to keep. Additional copies, or additional slide shows can be provided for an additional cost.

If you make your own slide show we do recommend that you send a copy over to us in advance so that we can test for compatibility and ensure that it will work on our systems. For more details on how to set up your own file please call our office and we are happy to help you however we can.  For prom and group events each guest can provide a certain number of pictures and we will combine them into one video.

Here is a sample video we created for a 16th birthday party!
