Dunk a Mermaid!

Dunk a Mermaid!  Dunk Mermaid Sign by AquaTails quality mermaid tails for swimming

AquaTails will be vending at the Pike’s Peak Celtic Festival here in Colorado Springs this weekend, June 19-21, 2015.

We will also be hosting our first “Dunk the Mermaid” dunk tank game! Be sure to come out and dunk our mermaids, don’t let them dry out in the hot Colorado sun! 🙂

I wonder how many people will choose to go push the lever?

  1. How did this event do? Was it worth renting the dunk tank. I am thinking of doing it. My daughter wants to dress as a mermaid and have people dunk her.

    1. Hi! We had a lot of fun doing it, but we ran into some major obstacles, mistakes made by the event planners. Firstly, they placed us far away from everything else, so people had to go out of their way to get to us. Secondly, even though I had arranged with them ahead of time to provide water for the tank, they completely dropped the ball, so we lost half of the event just trying to procure water for the tank. But once we got it going it went well. We didn’t make quite enough to cover the costs (for the tank, tent and everything), but if those two obstacles had not happened and we had had the tank going all weekend long, we would have made enough. A couple of notes: the mermaids got quite cold in the tank and had to take shifts. Also, by the end of the weekend the water was all muddied – it would have been good to have had a wooden pallet with a rug on it, to transition each mermaid going in and out, as the ground around the tank ladder got pretty muddy. Other than that, it was fun and went well. 🙂 I recommend it if she really wants to try it, it is fun, and she gets to swim to the window and pose with the person who knocked her in. That is magical!
