Your Ninjas were absolutely amazing. They handled the energies of the mini ninjas so well and channelled them in such a positive, and fun way. They had the adults laughing with the layered comedy and their physicality, fight sequences and characters were amazing. How will I top this next year?

The Turtles were the hit of the party and even days after, people were still talking about them. They were both very friendly and did an absolutely amazing and fantastic job. It was worth every penny spent. My son's reaction when he saw them was priceless! And the way they made him feel so special throughout their visit was indescribable.

OMG! Everyone (kids and adults) had such a great time at my twins 5th birthday party this past Saturday and I owe it all to you and your awesome team. The Red and Blue Power Ranger Samurais were incredible. I have never seen the twins so excited and in shock before that it made my eyes water to see how happy they were and to see the smiles on their faces. I am definitely recommending Action Events LA to all my friends and family.

We attended the Ninja Night at the Beverly Hills Country Club on June 10 and the two ninja entertainers were awesome! The kids all loved them and they put on a great show. Even my son who is usually tentative about things like this was drawn in and had a total blast.  They even stayed in character in the parking lot to the delight of several children!

Captain America was incredible!! I mean it when I say that every other party character company should see what you guys do because he truly raised the standard. His connection with my son and the other kids was instant, his costume was perfect, and he made us ALL laugh the entire time. Truly we could not be any happier with Action Events and I can't stop smiling when I look at the photos.
