To secure your reservation, we require a non-refundable reservation retainer of $250.00.

Our Bounce Houses are for toddler use only with a five-person maximum. Bounce houses are designed for jumping and bouncing; somersaults, flips, and other forms of roughhousing and horseplay is prohibited.

  • Inflatable Specifications

Every inflatable has at least one inflation tube that is attached to a motor/blower. It’s important to ensure that all other inflation tubes are securely fastened so air doesn’t escape. Every inflatable has at least four anchoring points. Some slides or larger inflatables will have at least two more to secure it from tipping over. It’s important to ensure that all anchoring points are properly secured to the ground to prevent the inflatable from tipping over. Some inflatables have Velcro and zippers. These need to be closed and fastened at all times to prevent children from falling out of the inflatable.

  •  Motor/Blower

It’s important to ensure that all other inflation tubes are securely fastened so air doesn’t escape. The motor/blower should not moved and be on at all times to keep the inflatable properly inflated.

  • Emergency Procedures

If inflatable beings deflate or collapse, REMAIN CALM and direct everyone to move away from the inflatable. If someone is trapped inside of a collapsed inflatable, direct someone to re-inflate the product while helping the person out of the product at the same time.
