Bounce Houses Frequently Asked Questions

What are the Safety Guidelines for Inflatable Bounce Houses?

Inflatables are a popular item for summer parties such as graduations, picnics, and even weddings. There are some safety considerations to follow so that everyone has a good time and no one is injured. Below are some tips to keep you and your guests safe when using a bounce house.


Do you have Insurance? Are your units Inspected?

We’re responsibly licensed and approved by the State of Ohio, Division of Amusement Rides. ALL inflatables are regularly inspected by the State of Ohio and our staff for safe operation. Our equipment is fully insured by an A+ rated insurance agency that specializes in Bounce Houses. However, patrons utilizing the inflatables are not covered. This is not an injury/accidental insurance.

Are inflatables safe?

YES! Inflatables are safe when certain safety and operating procedures are followed such as anchoring it down, not using it in high wind, maintaining the equipment, monitoring riders, etc. We handle the setup and we will thoroughly train you, as the attendant in charge of the ride, according to the manufacturer’s recommended operating and safety procedures according to ASTM regulations. Safety & Operating information is also available here.

What do we do if the inflatable is up and it begins to rain?

Have all bouncers exit the inflatable. After everyone is out, unplug the blower and cover it from the rain. Leave the inflatable deflated. Once the rain stops, plug the blower back in and wipe down any wet surfaces to avoid slipping.
The vinyl gets very slippery when wet.

How many people can enjoy the Bounce House at a time?

It all depends on the age and size of the kids doing the jumping and the size of the bounce house. Here’s a good rule of thumb:


3-6 year olds = 8 kids


7-11 year olds = 7 kids


12-17 years old or older = 4 kids


Specific weight limits are posted on each unit and may vary by unit.

How far in advance can I reserve my Bounce House or any other rental?
