Sift, search, sort and shine rubble into beautiful gems with this rental activity! Children of all ages will discover a variety of colorful minerals and raw gemstones. With this AMJ rental, it brings the option of having something fun also be educational to a party or event. A lesson in mineral properties like: density, luster, color, texture, streak. While the little Rockhounds dig and sift they can learn about crystal structure and explore “The 3 C’s” of gem mining-color, clarity and crystals.  Hours of hands-on fun that is something a little different than the usual activities.

Looking for an interactive station for your School Fun Fair or Scout party? Teachers would love this option to connect to the physical geography or mineralogy science units. This has everything you need to conduct your own “mining expedition”! Pan for gold? Sounds like a shiny great time.

Gem hunters of all ages will get their hands wet and be amazed at how beautiful the dirt of the earth can be after it has a little washing.

Throwing a birthday party for the Earth-loving nature enthusiast, who says they want to be a Geologist or Anthropologist when they grow up? This will be his/her highlight of the party, for sure!  Or a Snow White party perhaps?

Looking for an activity that is a little different for the children at your event to keep them entertained and having fun? Talk to our event planners about renting this Gemstone Mining Table!

When you’re planning an event, you want for it to be memorable. While inflatable rides can generate lots of laughter (and burn off some excess energy!), wouldn’t it be fun to bring in something that people will still be talking about next week, not to mention a little keepsake from the event? Then you might be interested in our Portable Gemstone Mining System!

This is a great hands-on participation activity for kids, with a little education attached. But it’s not just for kids – all ages will AMJ-Spectacular-Events-A-Moon-Jump-4U-Gemstone-Mining-2enjoy this activity.

We offer a 3 lb. bag of mineral rough n’ soil mixture, which contains many varieties of mineral stones. Your guests purchase a bag of mineral enriched soil and pour it into a sifting tray. They dip it into the sluice and watch the soil wash away leaving just the gems.

Our system is portable allowing us to bring the fun to you! (unlike many other panning systems out there today).  Please also ask us about Gem Stone Mining Packages available for your next event!

Inflatable Zip Line for All Sizes and Ages!

Big news for thrill-seekers in the Wisconsin / Illinois / Indiana area!  A Moon Jump 4U (a division of AMJ Spectacular Events) has recently acquired a one-of-a-kind mobile zip line.

If you’ve wanted to add some real excitement to a birthday party or company event, but worried that a portable zipline might be too scary for some of your guests, we have the solution!  Watch the video below and you’ll see that our zip line has several advantages:

  • riders sit on a seat, so it can accommodate sizes from 300 lbs down to very young children!
  • there’s a slide, for those riders who freak out when they realize just how high up they are when they get to the top!
  • the ride is shorter, but FASTER than many other zip lines – a sprint from top to bottom!
  • can accommodate up to 200 riders per hour – perfect for larger events!

Inflatable Zip Line Rental Illinois

You may see other inflatable zip lines in the Chicago area, but our Tidal Wave Inflatable Zip Line is unique – the striking blue wave patterns make you feel like you’re flying over water.  And ours is only 28 feet tall, so it will fit in more locations than the 35-foot structure offered by some other companies (their extra height comes from a decorative element that sticks out of the top).

If you decide that you want a traditional zip line, we have that too – a huge, 3-story tall, 220-foot long zipline that will make a BIG impression at your upcoming event!

Be sure to contact us right away to check on availability – we had several bookings for this unique inflatable before it even arrived in our warehouse!  Just call us (630-833-4386) or email us (sales@amjse.com) right away.  Imagine having THIS at your event!

When Is An Obstacle A Good Thing?

As adults, obstacles are things that get in our way – the fewer we encounter in our day, the better.  But have you noticed how kids LOVE obstacles?!  In particular, obstacle courses.  Whether it’s the fun of testing themselves to see what they can accomplish, or the thrill of competition, kids seem to want to do obstacle courses over and over and over.

An obstacle course can be a great addition to your Chicago area birthday party or family oriented event.  Our 58-foot “Rat Race” inflatable obstacle course is big, colorful, and full of character!  Your kids’ eyes will light up the first time they see it, and their smiles as they exit will make for a perfect photo opportunity.




A Moon Jump 4U, a division of AMJ Spectacular Events, has been renting inflatable bounce houses and obstacle courses to families, organizations, and businesses around Chicago and northeast Illinois (and as far away as Wisconsin and Indiana!) since 2004.  Contact us today to check on availability!

Race Fans Experienced Acceleration & Exhilaration at the 2013 Indianapolis 500!

The Snake Pit at this year’s Indy 500 featured, for the first time ever, the 220-foot Fly Wire Mobile Zipline. Race fans had a unique view from the 3-story tall structure, and at speeds of over 20 mph, the zipline added to the exhilaration of an already-exciting day. The fun wasn’t restricted to kids – anyone weighing between 50 and 250 lbs was eligible to ride.

The Indianapolis Motor Speedway had been considering a zipline since the previous year, and not surprisingly, safety was the number one concern. They considered several different vendors, and finally settled on AMJ Spectacular Events from the Chicago area. AMJSE has a strong record of safety, and prior experience at big venues from Colts Stadium to The Oprah Show.  Here’s one of several reports from local Indianapolis media outlets, talking about the fun…

To bring the excitement of a mobile zip line to YOUR next event, simply call us (630-833-4386) or email us (sales@amjse.com) – but hurry, as the summer schedule is filling fast!
