We hired this company to do airbrush temporary tattoos for our company holiday party. Denise & her team were on-time and did a wonderful job!!! They were hugely fun, the company love love LOVED having this as entertainment at the event. Everyone wanted one, and Denise's team was quick with each one, and very patient with us when we asked them to extend their hours to last the rest of the party. It was a huge success! Thank you!! Highly recommend.

The experience was great however a little too structured. I am not used to entertainment being so ridgid and monitoring the clock. Otherwise it was great.

Steve's performance for our 6 year olds birthday party was first class. The kids and adults were mesmerised. The shadow show at the end was amazing-he is a really talented artist. I would recommend Steve Owens to anyone looking for outstanding entertainment. Also, what a pleasant guy he is.

DJ Armando provided the musical entertainment for my 60th birthday party on August 31, 2013. The experience was fantastic.The music was exactly as I requested. The guests enjoyed the variety of tunes from a variety of decades. Armando is professional and he makes sure that everyone has a good time. The rate for his time is very reasonable. Armando has his own equipment and arrives early for the occasion to set up and then concludes in a timely manner. I give him the highest rating possible and would recommend him to everyone. I will definitely contact him for my next party.

ALL of the above! DJ James with ITM Entertainment is by far the best DJ we have had at So Cal Boot Camp. His mixes are up to date, fun, and amazing to dance to. He is always on time and prepared with all equipment, music, and lighting ready.

Rachel was fantastic! I hired her for my godson's birthday party and, admittedly, expected a typical birthday clown experience. Nope! She was the highlight of the party! Charismatic, entertaining, and the children (and adults) loved her. I can't recommend her enough. Thanks again, Rachel!

One of the best DJs in Southern California. I've had the pleasure of enjoying Jon Don's entertainment for over ten years. He's hilarious as a stand-up comic (so perfect as an MC). Five star recommendation.

If you are looking for a live saxophonist in Socal, Tyler is the guy. He is very professional, and he is passionate about what he does. Tyler comes prepared. He was a hit at our wedding. His playlist is classy and trendy. I would highly recommend him to everybody. My wife and I were so excited to have him be part of that memorable day.

John was the DJ for my daughter's wedding and we had SO much fun! He was very easy to deal with pre-wedding, and kept everyone dancing. (In fact the bride never sat all evening!) Our guests really enjoyed themselves, in large part due to the music. John also acted as MC and paced the evening perfectly. The company was recommended to me by a co-worker - who gave John nothing but rave reviews - and he did not disappoint. Additionally, their rates are very reasonable. I would use After Dark Entertainment again and would highly recommend them in a heartbeat!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is a bounce house?

Bounce houses, inflatable castles, moon bounces, inflatable slides and jumpy castles are all large-scale inflatable houses made for interactive entertainment. Commonly intended for children, bounces houses are made of PVC or other durable materials such as nylon or vinyl that when look like a house or castle when inflated. Rental companies deliver bounce houses to birthday parties, festivals, fairs and other events. The companies have industrial-grade blowers that fill the large structures with air to make them bounceable. A common size for a bounce house might be 15 feet by 15 feet by 13 feet. Bounce houses often have a flat, inflatable bottom pad and inflatable walls so that kids can jump and bounce without being hurt, along with a netting door and windows so that kids can see out and adults can see in. Bounce houses are suitable for both indoor or outdoor events, depending on the venue. For large events, rental companies often have a staff member who stays with the structure to monitor safety and keep it properly inflated. There are also wet/dry bounce houses with slides that you can hook up to a hose on hot summer days. A bounce house can be a fantastic addition to a party with kids, keeping them both entertained and contained.

Are bounce houses safe?

Bounce houses can be safe if operators and parents take proper precautions. Before renting from a company, confirm they are a legitimate company and hold any licenses and insurance required by your state. Ask to see reports of bounce house safety inspections provided by third parties, to make sure the equipment is in good operating condition to prevent injuries. If the rental company does not provide a staff member to oversee the bounce house for the duration of the rental, make sure you are properly trained on how to oversee the equipment. The American Academy of Pediatrics offers these guidelines for parents to help keep their kids safe when using a bounce house:  

  • Follow guidelines for safe installation including anchoring. Position away from fences, greenhouses, branches, etc., which would be dangerous should a child fall onto them.
  • Consider limiting use to children 6 years of age and older.
  • Have kids take off footwear, eyeglasses and jewelry before playing.
  • Take sharp objects (pens, keys) that could cause puncture injuries out of their pockets and hands before playing.
  • Don’t let kids of significantly different sizes into the bounce house at the same time. Smaller kids can get hurt by colliding with or falling under an older child.
  • Heed the height and weight regulations of the inflatable.
  • Food, drink, bottles, glasses, etc., should not be taken onto the bounce house.
  • Supervision should be maintained all the time. Supervision means watching constantly, not just being in the area.
  • Do not allow children to push other children off the inflatable. If it is a flatbed, this is especially important to avoid broken arms and legs. If the bounce house is walled, don’t let kids bounce against the walls and crash into one another — this can result in collision injuries.
  • Don’t exceed the maximum number of children at one time in the bounce house.
  • Don’t let kids climb onto the outside walls. Flips and rough play should also not be allowed.

How much does bounce a house cost to rent?

Bounce houses are a fun way to keep kids entertained during birthday parties and other events. The national average cost for renting a bounce house ranges between $160 and $200. Cost will be affected by the size, design and functions of the bounce house you rent as well as the length of the rental. A three-hour rental will likely cost less than an eight-hour rental. Many rental companies offer fun additions like popcorn machines or cotton candy makers, and provide packages with discounts on multiple items. Another item that you may want to rent with your inflatable is a generator to keep the bounce house inflated. Here are some examples of average inflatable rental costs, packages, and common add-ons that many companies provide:

  • Bounce house, 10x10x13-foot: $95.
  • Bounce house, 15x15x13.5-foot: $125.
  • Wet/dry slide, 14-foot: $150.
  • Wet/dry slide, 20-foot: $250.
  • Combo bouncer and slide, 24x10x13-foot: $140.
  • Combo bouncer and wet/dry slide, $175.
  • Folding chairs: $1.50 per chair.
  • 6-foot folding table: $8.
  • Snow cone machine: $45.
  • Popcorn machine: $55.
  • Cotton candy machine: $55.
  • 2300-watt generator: $75.
  • 3000-watt generator: $100.
  • $299.95 package: includes a 20-foot dual slide ($250), table ($8), 10 chairs ($15), and a popcorn machine ($55) — $29 savings.
  • $450 package: includes a double water slide ($350) and bounce castle ($130) — $30 savings.
