It's a Knockout Bristol
You may not have seen the original television programme of It’s a Knockout, but we’re pretty sure that the name will ring a bell! The most well-known episode was a charity special where members of the Royal family headed up a-list celebrity teams including Superman Christopher Reeve, Gary Lineker and Tom Jones.
Inflatable Games Bristol - It's a Knockout Bristol
Most popular in the eighties, the hilarious game show has had a revival through It’s a Knockout Bristol inspired events. If you visit the West Country, you can even take part in a variation of It’s a Knockout Bristol style! With nine giant inflatable games, all with a farmer spin to them, you can bet your bottom dollar you will be in for a proper lush day out!
In fact, the South West has clear links to the nostalgic recreations of these types of shows. Who other than Stephen Merchant could be the host of the recent remake of Crystal Maze. Bristol born and bred, Merchant was the perfect replacement for local legend Richard O’Brien who hails from Gloucestershire!
Inflatable Fun in Bristol
There is a real appetite for nineties remakes of all kinds, just look at the resurgence of pop stars such as Take That, Oasis, The Spice Girls and All Saints. It’s no surprise that television favourites from the same era started reappearing on our screens a few years ago.
We’ve witnessed new versions of the awesome Gladiators, proper cult 90s viewing, and even the Krypton Factor made a faltering return for a few episodes.
The real fun through, is when these programmes that you used to adore as a child become real life events that you can participate in as an adult! When the Crystal Maze site in London opened up in 2016, tickets sold out immediately.
Bristol Group Inflatable Games
Backed entirely by the public on a crowd funding site, it just goes to show how powerful nostalgia really is!
If you’re looking for a fun Bristol activity, head over to West Country Games and you’ll discover the ultimate combination of all these brilliant shows. Firstly, your group will have your very own host, just like in the Crystal Maze, to take you from zone to zone or at least from game to game! Harmonica playing is subject to availability.
Much like It’s a Knockout, at this Bristol site you will take part in huge inflatable games and giant obstacle courses. You’ll take part in a Gladiator duel with inflatable pitchforks instead of pugel sticks so you can recreate those battles on the sofa you used to have with your brother.
There’s even a Total Wipeout game where you have to leap over a sweeper arm and try and stay on your feet!
