Depending on the size and age of the kids, 4-6 children will fit in the small bounces and 6-8 children will fit in the standard size bounces. Make sure that only same size kids go in at the same time. If there are a lot of kids, get a timer and time them at 5-minute increments. Adult supervision is required at all times!

What do I need to do before the bounce house arrives?

Prior to party day, please call to confirm your reservation. Customers should clear the bounce house path and area and notify us if the bounce house will be placed on gravel, dirct, cement, or rocks instead of grass.

My party is in a park, what do I need to do?

First, you need to call the Parks and Recreation Office in your city. Some parks do not allow bounce houses. If they do, you will need to obtain a permit to have a party and another permit to have a bounce house. You will also need to ask about and/or obtain an electrical source. Read more about the requirements to rent a bounce house for use in a park.

What happens if it rains or there are high winds?

We reserve the right to cancel due to rain or high winds. Read our weather policy.

What are the differences between the bounce houses?

Depending on what you want the kids to do, we have several dozens styles.  For just bouncing, a bounce house holds 6-8 kids.  Jump and slide combos have become popular because the kids like running around.  For bigger events, churches and company picnics, you can get things that are interactive.  If you have over 40 kids, you need at least 3-4 pieces of equipment, make sure you rent equipment that is age appropriate, i.e. (some for the older kids, some for the younger kids).  For over 100 children, please let us know what your budget is so we can customize your event.  A lot of people call just to ask for the price without considering the size or safety, each bounce house is different, it is like comparing apples and oranges. See our selection of bounce houses.

Do you have a business, product, or service to trade? Trades need at least 2-4 weeks advance notice. Do not call the office, please email us what you have to offer.  t-shirts, auto repair, printing brochures, food certificates, airline tickets, etc…

What do you recommend?

If you’ve never had a bounce house before, start with the regular size. If you’ve had bounce houses before, the next best thing is the jump & slide combo – they are still affordable and twice the fun. In the summer when it’s really hot, the water slides are popular. Also ask about our climate controlled facilities and if we have one in your area.
