    How many people can play in an inflatable at one time?

    Some inflatables can safely handle more participants that others. The rental agreement, equipment signage, and rules for operation will be provided to you by at the time of delivery and will state the number of users allowed on the equipment you rent. The inflatable slides allow one to two guests to slide at a time, where most inflatables can safely hold between 4 and 10 guests at a time depending on the size of the unit and ages of the riders. Adult supervision is required for safe operation of any inflatable unit.

    Are your inflatables safe and clean?

    Yes. Our inflatables are constructed with quality and safety in mind! All of our units are constructed from commercial grade 18 to 21 oz. vinyl, with double stitching. All of the materials are fire retardant. The windows of the bounces are made of specially designed mesh netting, which allows for easy viewing and minimizes the chances of getting entangled.

    All of our inflatables are cleaned and inspected after every rental and are routinely completely disinfected. We are committed to making sure that your children are playing in a clean, healthy, and safe environment.

    What is your cancellation policy?

    If, on the day of your rental, rain, high winds or other inclement weather is predicted you will be given the option to cancel your rental or reschedule at no cost. However, once the equipment has left our warehouse, there are no refunds.

    Cancellations can be made up to 7 days prior to an event without penalty.

    Can the inflatables be set-up indoors?

    Yes, our units can be set up inside or outside! You will need to have enough ceiling height (about 18’-20’) to accommodate the most inflatables although we have some shorter units. The inflatable must not be set up too near hot lights, fire prevention equipment, air conditioning vents, or any fire hazard. Many gymnasiums, halls, churches, malls, or locations with sufficient height will do just fine.

    What should I do if I lose power or have another problem?

    Immediately call your delivery driver or the office 864-305-9634. with any concerns regarding personnel or equipment. In case of a real emergency, dial 911.

    Interrupted power is the primary source of inflatable failures. Should the blowers provided to you stop working, immediately remove the children playing in or on it. Then check the circuit breaker to see if it has tripped. If the circuit breaker has tripped, try to identify and isolate any other equipment from the circuit before resetting the breaker.

    How much electricity do I need?

    Our inflatables and games are inflated using a fully enclosed electric blower unit that is powered by a standard 110 volt, 20 AMP, three-prong electrical outlet. Each blower draws roughly 9-10 Amps (1,000 -1,100w) and some larger units use multiple blowers. Electricity is needed within 100 feet of the inflatable. These motors run constantly to keep the unit inflated so constant ample power will be required.

    Concession equipment should not be placed on the same power source. The units are powered by a standard 110 volt, 20 AMP, three-prong electrical outlet. Each machine requires between 7-11 Amps (900-1,300w).

    A generator may be used to power the units if sufficient outlets/power is not available.
