High Striker - Test Your Strength Machine Hire


Our High Striker (like the fairground Test Your Strength machines) stands at 10ft in height and can be configured to allow both adults and children to have a go so it really can be played by everyone.  High Striker hire is the perfect activity for School Fetes, Corporate Events, Family Fundays, Christmas Parties – the activity is always a hit whenever it is rented out.  High Striker hire is also proving very popular for Exhibitions, Trade Stands and Promotional Events.  Our unit features flashing LED’s up the shaft which looks great at evening and indoor events.

Based on the traditional fairground style Test-Your-Strength games, the aim of the game is to hit the centre target as hard as possible which will then fire the little mouse up the scoreboard.  The harder you hit the target the higher the mouse will rise.  And if you manage to get the mouse all the way to the top, you will hear the bell sound out and you can take your bow!  The High Striker is an easy activity to run competitively as the unit has scores all up the sides so you can record peoples scores depending on how high the mouse is catapulted.

All of our High Striker units include £10 million PLI and risk assessments.

High Strikers are available to hire from Altitude for events and venues in East Sussex, West Sussex, Surrey, Kent, Hampshire, Essex, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire and London.

Our High Striker does not require a mains power supply as the LED’s are battery-powered.   The High Striker is less than a metre round but we do need a little bit of space for the players to stand and swing the mallets safely.  Plus obviously a LOT of space for the big crowds who will come to watch!  When you hire the High Striker, it comes supplied with a rubber mallet and everything else required to operate, you just need to provide prizes if required.

Please note that we have a minimum hire fee of £400 + VAT so we usually only hire these games as part of packages rather than individually.

Just a short note to thank you (and Joe) for your efforts on Sunday. Joe was an absolute star. The presentation of the equipment was immaculate including the set up.

Also, a big thank you to the guys on Sunday, the feedback was faultless.
