Chazz was excellent. We made a great decision to hire him for my daughter's 1st birthday. To prep for the event he made sure to ask me the right questions to understand our expectations and to understand his audience. During the event, his manner was very animated and captivating and he definitely held attention of all our guests, kids and adults alike. He will be on my hiring list for the next event also. Thanks Chazz for providing such great entertainment for the 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.

Our company put on a large event for a community in Chula Vista which offered games and entertainment this past weekend. Judy did an amazing job! One of our other facepainters was a no-show, which meant that the line was non-stop for her. But she handled it with no problem! We received many compliments from various residents and were so happy with Judy's talents. We will definitely be in touch if we do this event again! Thank you Judy :)

We are about to celebrate or 7th anniversary but I can still remember the day like it was yesterday! Mike was very helpful and tailored the premarital counseling to our lifestyle. He listened to us when we asked to keep the ceremony short and sweet. Best of all, he incorporated humorous and meaningful statements that kept our guests interested. If he stilled lived in WA I’d recommend him to all my friends up here.

I hired DJ B3DH3AD for a birthday party and I could not be happier with my decision! He played current popular music, music from the 80s and 90s, as well as requests from my guests!

Cameron brought great music and ambiance to our party! He is a fantastic musician and easy going. He did an impromptu jam session with one of our guests who had brought his guitar and banjo. If you want to have some live music at your party, do not look further! He also sings if you want to or makes wonderful background music. Bigger party, no problem either. Leave it to Cameron!

Jason was the perfect addition to our event. My company had a small dinner function for about 50 people of all ages. He knew how to work the crowd, keep everyone entertained and be flexible for us. The kids absolutely loved him and the adults had so much fun. He was so reasonably priced and amazingly pleasant to do business with. Jason even provided music for us (so thankful cuz I had forgotten about it) and ended the night with balloon animals for the kids. I would absolutely work with Jason again and so should you!

I was looking for a cellist to accompany me (I'm a singer/acoustic guitarist) at my sister's wedding in Massachusetts. Daniel came highly recommended by a local music store owner, as he was living and playing music in Western Massachusetts at the time. I was nervous, as I'd never heard Daniel play before, and because I was in town from California just a few days before the wedding, we were only able rehearse once. To my delight and extreme relief, Daniel was easy to work with, a consummate professional and an excellent musician. He was also quite versatile - we performed two contemporary tunes together (an Alanis Morissette song + a Bonnie Raitt song), and he played several instrumental, classical pieces before the ceremony. He was fluent in both genres, and the music was absolutely beautiful! I'm so glad Daniel has relocated to SoCal, as I'm looking forward to working with him again. I highly recommend Daniel for your next event!

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.
