Photo booth hire at Star City – Stuck in the lift

Photo booth hire at Star City

All my photo booth equipment got stuck in the lift during a photo booth hire at Star City. It all happened when I arrived for Ellie’s 21st Birthday party. I’ve been to Star City several time, so I know the place well. It did not occur to me that I’d need to use the lift to take the photo booth up to the first floor of goals soccer centre where they have a function room. I thought the safest way to get the heavy stuff up was to use the disability access lift.

I packed the photo booth equipment in with the help of the security guard. After that, I went up the stairs to call the lift. Halfway up, the lift got stuck. This became a race against time. Panic! will I resolve this situation in time for booking start time?

The very helpful security guard made a call to the manager. With a lot of trial and error, we were soon able to send the lift back down. He knew what he was doing. In no time, we were able to send the lift back up again this time in 3 separate trips.  I went straight into auto pilot mode, unpacking, assembling and setting up. Yes we made it. The photo booth was ready to use bang on time. With a lot of sweat and scrapes of course.

Sometimes when you book a venue and want to have a photo booth, you may be worried about space. The allocated space was small but the booth was able to fit in. The guests didn’t mind squeezing around it to get in. Our recommended floor space a full photo booth setup is 3 meters by 3 meters. They took lots of photos and loved every moment of it. The theme was gold and black and we designed a nice photo template to go with it.

If you’re unsure of whether the space you have will do for the photo booth hire, you can always contact us to discuss this.
