Are you looking for the perfect way to celebrate one of life’s milestones? Or maybe you just feel like making your next big night out something special? Whatever the occasion, hiring a party bus is always a great idea!

From proms and birthdays, to bachelor and bachelorette nights, you can customize your party bus to any theme you want.

Partying in a bus is way more fun than throwing a house party or hiring a venue. And there’s no need to wait for taxis if you want to head across town. Instead, take the party with you as you drink and ‘drive’ in safety while you celebrate with all your closest friends and relatives.

Here’s how to make the most of your party bus rental for a night out you’ll never forget!

Decide on Your Theme

Choosing the right theme for your party bus experience can elevate a standard-level party to an epic event.

If you’re celebrating a bachelor or bachelorette party then an original theme will unite your group and grab the attention of passers-by. Just think of the selfie opportunities too!

If it’s your party and you’re stuck for ideas, themes like 101 Dalmatians, cheerleaders, Where’s Wally? or cops and robbers are all great fun.

For birthdays and other celebrations, bringing items like wigs, masks, hats and custom T-shirts is a good option. Not only are they easy to remove, it doesn’t force guests to dress in a way that makes them uncomfortable. You can also swap items with each other for funny photos.

When it comes to decorating the party bus, remember that the meter will be running while you put the decorations up. And you’ll have to take them down at the end of the night too.

So, keep it simple. Balloons, banners, and streamers are all easy to put up with tape and take down later. This way you won’t have to worry about paying extra cleaning fees.

Party Bus Games

When it comes to party bus ideas for adults, you need games that can be played anywhere and require next to no preparation or equipment.

Drinking games are the perfect option for party buses, as all you need is a drink and a sense of fun.

Games like Twenty One and Fuzzy Duck are perfect for mixed groups. But, you might want to reserve games like Never Have I Ever or Truth or Dare for your closest friends!

Or, try these drinking games you’ve never heard of to break the ice and get everyone into the party spirit.

Food and Drink Supplies

Stick to finger food that’s light, easy to eat and not too messy.

Bags of potato chips, popcorn, and tortilla chips are ideal as on-the-go snacks. And if you don’t end up needing them, you can save the unopened packs for another day.

Bring baguettes, sliced cheese and deli meats for easy sandwiches. And guacamole and hummus to eat with the bread or chips. Mini quiches, sausage rolls, and mini pizzas also make ideal finger foods.

When it comes to drinks, bring enough so that everyone can have around two drinks per hour.

Avoid red wine so that spillages don’t cause too much of an issue. Instead, stick to beer, white wine, a range of spirits, and soft drinks to use as mixers or for non-drinkers.

The Perfect Party Bus Playlist

Music is crucial for any good party, and planning the ultimate party bus experience is no exception.

If you want to be in control of the music, you could plug in your phone and play DJ all night. If you need some inspiration, check out this ultimate party playlist.

Or, if you prefer to relax and kick back, ask the party bus company what options they have when it comes to streaming apps or satellite stations.

Spotify is always a popular choice for parties thanks to their millions of playlists to cater for a range of musical tastes.

Plan Your Route

Bear in mind that your party bus may not have a bathroom, so regular stops will be necessary. And as you’re planning an adult party bus night, you need to consider that drinkers will need to stop more often.

Plan the route you want the driver to take and factor in stops every half an hour or so.

These pit stops can include bars, where you can all stop for an extra drink as well as a bathroom. Or, local landmarks with bathroom facilities, which are great places to stop for photo ops.

What to Bring on A Party Bus

As well as food, drink, and decorations, there are some essentials that you might forget when planning what to do on a party bus. Here’s a checklist to give you some ideas:

  • Tape – to stick up any decorations
  • Scissors – useful for opening packets
  • Pen and paper – these can come in handy for games
  • Bottled water
  • Paper plates
  • Bags of ice in a plastic tub
  • Cash
  • Cloths, stain remover, and paper towels – for cleaning up any spillages on clothes or upholstery
  • Trash bags
  • Cell phone chargers – especially if you plan on using your phone to play music
  • First aid kit
  • Motion sickness tablets

You might not need everything on this list but having it with you means you can avoid making extra stops. The last thing you want to be doing is stopping to stock up on cleaning supplies when you should be enjoying every second of your night.

Book Your Party Bus Rental Today

Now you have your perfect party bus night planned out, all you need to do is decide what type of bus to book.

Party bus sizes can range from smaller models that hold around 10 people to larger buses with space for 30 or more passengers.

If you’re in doubt, a party bus rental with extra space is the best choice. So, if you’re inviting 20 people, book a bus with room for 30.

This way, if you make friends at one of the night’s many stops, inviting them along won’t cause any issues. And when everyone sees how much fun you’re all having, they’re sure to want to come aboard and party with you!
