How to Have the Perfect Family Hot Tub Movie Night

by | Jun 7, 2022 | Latest News

The hot tub is a perfect place for you and your family to spend some quality time together. A fun way to spend time with your family in the hot tub is by having a movie night! Here are all of our best tips and tricks on having the best hot tub movie night. 

 

The Big Screen

Did you know that the inside of your hot tub cover works perfectly as a screen for a projector? There are a few different ways that you can set up a project to have an awesome view of your movie on your hot tub cover

The best way to set up for a hot tub movie night is with a gazebo. Using your gazebo’s structure is one of the easiest ways to set up your family movie night! Attach your projector to the roof of your gazebo, angle it down towards the cover, run an extension cord to the projector, and you’re ready to start watching movies!

No gazebo? No problem! You can also set your projector up on a table that sits higher than your hot tub (usually 39” or 98cm). 

Because your project isn’t high up in the air you will need to consider where everyone is sitting. No one would be able to sit in front of the projector because it needs a clear path to the cover to project your movie properly. Once you have your projector on the table, run an extension cord to it and start up your movie!

If you don’t have a projector, that’s okay too! There are still other ways you and all of your family members can enjoy a movie together! Using a tablet with a waterproof case works as a great hot tub movie screen. All you have to do is set the tablet up where everyone can see it and hit play!

 

Sound

One perk of watching a movie in your hot tub is that when you connect your movie to your sound system, you get a really cool surround sound effect! Having the movie’s sounds coming from your hot tub really enhances the movie experience and makes you feel like you’re right in the middle of the action! For an added bonus, turn your LED lighting on a colour that matches the mood of the movie.

Another thing to keep in mind when it comes to sound is your jets. Thanks to Arctic Spas’® energy efficient pumps, you don’t need to worry about loud jets drowning out the sound of your movie. These high-efficiency pumps run significantly quieter than the standard pump so you don’t have to worry about running your jets while watching your favourite movies.

Snacks

No movie night is complete without some tasty treats to snack on while you’re watching. Inflatable trays can be a fun way to eat your snacks while in the hot tub. They work best with light snacks such as chips, candy or popcorn.

You can also get inflatable trays that hold your drinks for you! Nothing is better than drinking a nice, warm hot chocolate on a chilly night in the tub while watching a movie!

The best things about family movie nights are always the unique things that your family does together. Get creative with it! Your family will love spending time together in the hot tub.
