The Trident gets wet and wild

Heritage day, 24th September, saw the river park at Emerald Casino, Vanderbijl Park, transformed into a dance emporium with hot weather, hot music and one hot inflatable venue, at Wet and Wild 2010.

Bustling with tanned bodies, minimal decor and a DJ Line-up boasting the likes of DJ Fresh, Erica Elle and Lady Lea, Wet and wild was the perfect "official large-dance-party debut" of the Trident portable venue.

The Trident, introduced by Rain Productions earlier this year, is an inflatable structure that can be customized, to ensure the perfect venue for anywhere up to 1,000 patrons.

"Working in the industry it is very easy to say you have seen all there is to see at these events. However Rain Productions got it right this time," comments Tracey Fawell, Key Account Manager at Offlimit Communications in Parkhurst, "It was impressive from the outside, but wow, as you walked into this enormous white and silver dome, I can honestly say it felt like I was in another world... that was one of the coolest things I seen in a very long time."

The massive dome structure created the perfect shaded area for guests in the scorching afternoon sun, as well as a covered dance floor when temperatures dropped at night.

Etienne Erasmus, MD of Rain Productions explains; "The Trident is suitable for any type of event, with our customised trussing structure on the inside one can do aerial acts, rig projection screens, lighting, sound and the list goes on. This is something that few other mobile venues can facilitate."

Rain Productions offers state-of-the-art conceptualisation, event design and event management. For more information about the company or the Trident, visit
