THE scoundrels who made off with the bright blue trailer parked at Novotel Twin Waters are in for a big surprise.

The distinctive trailer belonging to businessman Ray Carson might look like a treasure trove of valuable tools.

But what it houses will be totally useless to those who stole it days before the Easter long weekend.

Inside is a giant 25 metre long inflatable foosball field that requires "four people to remove it from the trailer and then six to erect it".

While upset his piece of team building equipment had been stolen, Mr Carson said the "dumb thieves" were in for some of their own "karma".

"It's absolutely useless to anybody except us," he said.

"It shows how dumb they are."

He was also optimistic his bright blue trailer, which is "visible from outer space", would be found quickly.

"It's a beautiful trailer, but it's so good looking that it really stands out. Someone would definitely have seen it".

Mr Carson, owner of team building company Xperiences, believed the trailer would have been taken from the car park on Thursday, March 29, but the theft was only noticed on Easter Sunday.

"I came up here and said 'guys, where is the trailer?'

"It was parked in a private car park on the resort property."

The foosball field is used by Mr Carson for team building and corporate events.

Big corporations like BHP and Rio Tinto have all had some fun on it.

"It's a kids' toy for adults,' he said.

"About 50,000 people a year use it."
