Fire Engine Adventure: The Ultimate Special Occasion If you have a kid’s birthday or your own special occasion coming up, you’ve probably considered the possibility of doing something out of the ordinary. Maybe even a total adventure, or something that will become a lasting memory for a lifetime. Well, imagine the look on your child’s face, or on the faces of your mates, when you rent a full-size fire engine as part of kids party ideas or birthday party themes.
The fire engine is an authentic, vintage 1967 Bedford Fire Engine, supplied by Fire Engine Adventures to make your party or outing both spectacular and unique. Both the fire engine and the rental experience have been designed and customized for maximum fun.
The fire engine can carry up to 11 passengers and is fully insured, and the interior has been fitted with flame read leather-effect seats. The specially heightened rear area is also fitted with seat belts for safety, and the roof has been raised to allow you to stand up in the passenger area. For your child’s parties, the fire engine arrives with lights flashing and siren wailing to get the kids in the right frame of mind.
A uniformed fireman in full regalia can be part of the package as well. Photos of the kids can be taken on arrival, after which the children get to go on fire engine rides in groups of ten at a time, including one or two adults. The sound system lends a significant assist, supplying popular tunes for a sing-a-long while the kids wave to bystanders during the trip.
Everyone in the neighbourhood will know what you’ve done for your child, and the experience is bound to be a popular topic of conversation for weeks and months later. And the special photos you take will last a lifetime. As part of Package 1, which is the one-hour hire, the child celebrating the birthday is given an honorary fireman’s certificate. When the ride is finished, mums and dads can also enjoy a quick spin around the neighborhood in the fire engine.
One small caution: when the rides are finished, the kids have the opportunity to blast some water from the fire hose or fire extinguishers, so please dress appropriately. As for the older kids (7 yr+), a quick tug of war with the fire hose may be part of the action as well, and options are also available for school formals.
Finally, there’s a free option with this package for dad (or mom, if preferred) to get dressed up and become part of the fire crew. Fire Engine Adventure staff are screened and have a clear National Police Check and also possess a ‘Working with Children’ card.
Our vintage 1967 Bedford fire engine is well maintained and is required to be inspected annually by VicRoads and meet Transport Safety Regulations.
