Once you've chosen which party bus company you are going to use and reviewed the rules for that company, for your bachelor/bachelorette party, you must decide which bus you are going to ride in during your trip. You may think that it doesn't matter which bus you choose, but not all party buses were created equally. There may be a certain feature that you assume is featured in each party bus that actually isn't. When choosing your party bus, there are a few things that you will want to keep in mind.
Choosing The Right Bus
If you have 20 guests, you don't necessarily want to rent a bus that can accommodate 40 people. Odds are, it's going to be more expensive and you'll have plenty of unused space. So unless you really want your party bus to be spacious, choose a bus that fits the size of your group. Knowing your full headcount can be a bit of a gamble, however. Most of the time, someone may bring a guest that you didn't account for, so you'll always want to account for two to four extra heads when planning your party bus experience.
On that same note, if you know your group will be bringing a lot of items onto the party bus (say, ice chests for summer float trips), then you may want to choose a bus that has a little bit of extra room. If you rent a 20-person party bus for your group of 18, they may feel like sardines in a can if everyone brings a large personal item on board.
Prevent Things From Getting Awkward
If you're throwing a bachelor or bachelorette party, it's unlikely that everyone invited will know each other. It can be beneficial to allow a little extra space so people who don't know each other don't feel obligated to sit next to each other. Of course, if it's a pretty close-knit group, then this might not matter to you!
Party buses have a wide variety of amenities, and if you're throwing a bachelor party these will no doubt be the most important factors to consider when booking a party bus. It is so important to choose the right bus so that you don't kill the vibe during the party. For example, if the groom-to-be loves karaoke, then find a bus that includes a karaoke system!
Other amenities to consider are stripper poles, wet bars, video game consoles, TVs and DVD players. Another big item that people tend to forget is a restroom. If you're going to be driving around town most of the night with limited stops, a restroom can be an invaluable amenity.
Lastly, it's always beneficial to think about safety, especially when alcohol is involved. Most party buses will have certain safety measures in place, so check and see what your party bus offers.
Before choosing which party bus you're going to use, make a list of everything you would like to see in it and use that list when making your selection.
Why Ninja Buses?
Ninja Buses offers a wide variety of amenities in our fleet of vehicles, which makes it a perfect fit for any type of bachelor party needs. Our most popular bus is "Calypso," John Denver's actual tour bus! This bus is like a time portal back to the '80s, but with a modern flair. The furnishings are the same as they were when Denver traveled across the country (wet bar, velour seating and a nautical-themed interior), but we have added TVs, speakers, two Nintendo Entertainment Systems, karaoke and more! This is the ultimate bachelor party bus.
As for the rest of our fleet, have you ever wished you could throw a party in one of Austin's Cap Metro buses? If so, then you are in luck! Our newest acquisition is an actual Cap Metro City Bus. Booking a trip in this bus brings back memories of college trips downtown, only this time you have exclusive use of the bus and you're allowed to drink! This bus is perfect for bachelor parties that are comprised mainly of bar-hopping around the city of Austin.
Filling out our fleet are two school buses that have been refurbished into party bus-style seating, with TVs and sound systems added for good measure. If you're going to the lake or planning a float trip for your party, these buses include in-seat Yeti Coolers as well.
