How can we meet Rumble?

Rumble is at every Oklahoma City Thunder home game at Paycom Center. Outside of game days, you can meet Rumble by requesting him for an appearance!

How many appearances does Rumble do a year?

Rumble can receive over 400 requests in a single year! With so many requests, Rumble does his best to attend between 250-300 of the requests each year.

How much does a Rumble appearance cost?

Rumble appearances vary in pricing. Appearances start at a $100 Digital Pre-Recorded Message to a $650 Hour In-Person Appearance. For pricing quotes, you can contact us at

Do you have a Non-Profit Rate?

Yes, we offer a Non-Profit appearance option with a specialized rate. Contact us at for more details.

Does Rumble do appearances on Game Days?

Due to the high demand on game days, Rumble is not able to attend events outside of the arena on home game days during the season.

How long does it take to hear about my request once it’s submitted?

Once you submit your request, you should hear back within 24-48 hours. If you haven’t heard back after (2) days, please contact us at to ensure your request was submitted properly.

How does a request get approved?

There are a lot of factors that we take into consideration when reviewing requests. We filter requests based on date availability and other standards to ensure we’re able to deliver the highest quality appearance for you.

My request was denied, what can I do now?

If your request was denied, we’ll always explain the reasoning. We’ll talk through what you can do in the future for another request as well as offer an alternative to the request if applicable.

My request was approved, what can I do now?

Congratulations! Jump for joy because your favorite bison is headed your way! Once an appearance is approved, Rumble’s Coordinator will be in touch to go over final details and the “next steps”. Just sit back, relax, and daydream about meeting everyone’s bison buddy in the flesh fur soon!

How will Rumble get to my appearance?

Rumble has one of the coolest vehicles in the NBA! He will show up in (or sometimes on top of) his 20ft long Rumble van! Rumor has it you can see it from space! (Don’t fact check that) With his large van, he will need a large space to park, so don’t be surprised when we ask “where can he park it?”

Can Rumble talk?

While Rumble has many unique talents, he hasn’t been able to master the art of speaking. (We’re still working on it.)

If Rumble doesn’t talk, how can we communicate with him at appearances?

While Rumble doesn’t talk, luckily, we taught his handler how to! Rumble will always have an assistant/handler/herder/bison whisperer with him to help communicate his needs as well as your needs during each appearance. So, if you have a question for Rumble, don’t be afraid to ask!

Does Rumble need anything special at appearances?

Rumble may be a high maintenance bison for the Thunder, but for you, he’s pretty low maintenance. If there’s any special needs or requests for an appearance, Rumble’s Coordinator will be in touch prior to your event date to discuss details.

What forms of payment are accepted for Rumble appearances?

We accept multiple forms of payment. Our preferred form is through credit card, however, we also accept cash and check. If paying with a check, we ask that all checks be made payable to “The Professional Basketball Club, LLC”. All fees related to a Rumble appearance must be paid and received by the team prior to the start of the appearance.

I’ve gotten this far and can’t think of anything else to ask. What else do I need to know?

Just know Rumble is here to leave a lasting memory for you and your friends and the team is here to make the process as easy as possible! If there are any outstanding questions or concerns from Rumble and/or the team, we’ll get it all worked out before sending the furry guy to you. If at any point you do come up with another question (e.g. What do bison do on days off? What kind of books do bison like to read? What is the meaning of life?) don’t hesitate to reach out to us at
