Pitchburst, an amusement water game and fun kids party rental.
 Pitchburst was invented as a last-minute dunk tank alternative during the drought of 1999 in Bucks County, PA, when local water use restrictions prohibited filling a 500 gallon dunk tank for a Make A Wish fund-raising backyard carnival. The patented game is now in use coast to coast and internationally through rental and party planning companies, special event planners, schools, charities, country clubs and fun loving families.  

Play Pitchburst® and make a "SPLURSH™" -
It's a proven crowd pleaser!

People worldwide love to play Pitchburst® at parties, fund raisers, carnivals, fairs, festivals, corporate events and more. It's safe and simple to play - pitch a ball, hit the target and - splursh! - a water balloon bursts overhead.  Pitchburst combines the soaking fun of a dunk tank with patented, go-anywhere portability. So unique, it's been called "the 21st century dunking booth" for its fun, simple design, versatility and environmental friendliness.

Pitchburst is the Dunk Tank alternative!  At about half the cost of a Dunk Tank, Pitchburst provides a cleaner and safer water game that can be used by all!




1. CLASSIC - Use full 11" or 12" water balloons. Pitch the ball, hit the target and SPLURSH! Extra fun for fund raisers when you charge $1 to $5 for 3 throws. Sometimes

kids will line up and pay just to sit in the chair to be the one splurshed!

2. LITE - Fill 11" balloons with 1 quart (or less) of water, inflate the rest with air. Same fun action, less water used (good when it's chilly out, or you're indoors with a kiddie pool to catch the Splursh water).

3. SPLURSH OFF! - Use TWO Pitchburst games facing one another. Each contestant is both pitcher and Splurshee… each takes turn pitching while the other sits. First to SPLURSH the other wins! Get 2 popular VIPs to play for charity and crowd will cheer! (Can be played on one game too, but that requires more running around.)

4. CONFETTI - Use confetti instead of water in balloons (make your own with a funnel, or buy hand-filled confetti balloons from us). Great for indoors, or when your VIP good sport really doesn't want to get wet! Also adds a great popping sound!

5. SLIME! (OR APPLESAUCE OR PUDDING)- Kids have seen it on TV, so make it happen for wild and crazy events. Insert food-colored applesauce or pudding through a funnel (fill about 1/2 full) and inflate the rest with air. Be prepared to clean up, though.

6. FLOUR- In a POP! your splurshee looks like a powdered donut! Funnel in simple white flour (about 1/2 cup does fine), and fill the rest with air. Nice variety especially for indoor fun.

7. MYSTERY SPLURSH!- Unique combo game first used in London: Fill 4 opaque, numbered balloons: one each with water, flour, pudding, confetti. Let your Splurshee choose which number balloon they want to sit under - nobody knows what they'll get hit with until the target's hit. Great crowd excitement builder!

8. FUNNELED FUEL-This one's unique for the pub or spring break crowd. Fill balloons with your favorite beverage (from tap makes it easiest). Splurshee sits in chair below the balloon, holding wide funnel in their mouth. When target's hit and balloon bursts, Splurshee gets a funnel full to drink. (Caution: see special note below.)

9. PIN THE SPLURSH ON THE SPLURSHEE- A tame but fun game for little tikes. With someone ready to be splurshed (we recommend just a little water as in #2 above), the "pitcher" is blindfolded and given a Jugglebeanball. Instead of throwing, they're turned around 3 times and told to push the ball into the red target.

10 . WHEELCHAIR-Finally, a dunking game for fun loving people with disabilities. Pitchburst can be played in wheelchairs, by both the pitcher and the splurshee!

Please Note: Operator is responsible for user safety playing Pitchburst. Please dispose of broken balloons immediately, and keep all balloons away from small children. Playing Pitchburst games, including those listed above, should be supervised by competent and responsible adults to avoid dangerous conditions and behaviors.


Time Magazine (October 13, 2003) reported that "The Work front has become a grind.  Yet some firms believe that serious business is done better with a laugh now and then".    What better way to generate a profit- or morale-boosting laugh than with Pitchburst.   Several world-famous candy, sneaker, pharmaceutical, computer and financial companies have already discovered the thrill of "splurshing" the boss or co-workers for fun at team-building, family, charity/community service and fundraising events.  One Chicago company raised $7000 in one day using 2 Pitchburst games (see Splursh Off! game #3 above) charging $5, 10, even $20 to pitch and try to "splursh" the senior managers. 

Pitchburst is also a distinctive fun promotional tool for brands too.  Please call to ask about special branding and themed options for large promotions.


  • Smart design - sets up in 5 minutes, and easily disassembles to fit in the back of a station wagon or minivan. Front stabilizers improve the game's "footing", even on grass and dirt.
