Bus to get mischief `out of way'

STRIPPERS, pole dancing, loud music, flashing lights and a pub crawl - get it on the Fun Bus.

The brightly painted 40-seat bus was among the 50 displays at yesterday's   Bridal Expo attended by 800 people at Launceston's Hotel Grand Chancellor. 

Hotel business development executive Millie Tuppini said stalls covered everything needed for a wedding - from dresses and make-up to limousines and receptions - and even honeymoon ideas to follow the big day.

``A lot of people come here to get ideas and see what is popular,'' she said.

Fun Bus driver Rob Archer, however, said his bus service was about ``getting their mischief out of the way before the big day''.

He said he and a host were often hired for hens nights and the specially equipped bus did a tour of five hotels.

It has a music system, two sets of flashing coloured laser lights and poles where he has ``lost count of how many people have done pole dancing''.

``A few of them have organised strippers,'' Mr Archer said.

``They get us to go to a secluded car park and then they have their show.

``Basically it is a dance floor on wheels.''

There are rules on the bus - no alcohol or smoking and common sense applies.
