I gave 4 stars instead of 5 because I specifically asked for angel wing balloons for the little girls. both when I contracted with Magical Memories and when the Magician/Balloon man arrived at the venue. It was agreed upon. All the children did get balloons (swords, animals, etc.). However, NO angel wings were made for the little girls. I'm assuming this entertainer did not have that expertise. Overall, it was a pleasure dealing with this company (very professional) and the kids enjoyed the entertainment and had a great time. I will use this entertainment service again in the future.

Hamilton was a true pleasure to work with. He was open and flexible - which enabled us to have him provide the entertainment for our event. We had a mixed generational crowd - and he geared the music towards everyone. Got feedback from folks that said it was the best event we had yet in the 40 years they've attended.

We just wanted to say that we cannot thank Scott enough!!!! He and the band went above and beyond in not only taking on the task of learning new songs, but you sounded astounding. Any time that someone said "what a beautiful wedding" it was IMMEDIATELY followed by "and this band is AMAZING! How did you find someone so great?!" We were so thrilled. There could not have been a better way to seal the deal of an old school wedding vibe, and everyone from young to old said that it was all the band who made our vision complete. They played live music for the entire wedding, and although I was hidden for the beginning of the ceremony, as soon as we emerged after cocktail hour it was one of the first things that everyone said. Plus their rendition of La Vie En Rose was one of the most beautiful I've ever heard. We really cannot thank then enough and just want to express our gratitude for their talent, responsiveness, and overall absolute kindness. Sincerely, The Newlyweds

We were looking for something different to entertain a large group of people at a 35th birthday party. David was recommended to us by a friend and I have to say it was one of the highlights of the party. Everyone absolutely loved his performance; we still have no idea how he did all of it! His personality and great and the guests loved him. We would definitely recommend him for any type of event if you want to add some fun and unique entertainment.

Thank you so much Gartrell The Great!!!! My company Starz On Tours hosted two big events for adults featuring an American Idol finalist in concert, and we needed a comedy magician to open for her. Thanks to Thumbtack, they put us in touch with Zachary Gartrell. He travelled many hours from his home in Virginia to our western North Carolina shows, and he was there early and ready to go.His warm ups for the shows were so funny, and close up magig in my face had me simply amazed!!! When I booked him I saw where he did quite a few kids birthday parties and some adult shows, but I could tell this man had what it took to entertain our audience, and he delivered in a big way. We booked him for four 45 minute shows for the weekend, and I could tell at the very first show we made the right decision. As soon as he had my entire adult audience rolling in their seats laughing only a few minutes into his performance, I knew our shows were going to feature the exact entertainment I was looking for. Zachary told me before the shows he could cater the shows to any type of audience. He knew exactly what I was looking for and he delivered. I got two talents in one performer. I got amazing magic and a very funny comedian with an unbelievable quick wit. Thank you so much Gartrell the Great. I look forward working together again very soon.

I worked with Ivan on a project titled "A Void Home" some years back. The soundtrack music he provided was top notch, atmospheric and touching and perfectly suited to the mood of the space documentary his work was commissioned for. I've additionally heard his work on other projects and attended his live performances. Always special and fabulous.

As an adult who never had piano lessons and doesn't play any instruments (so far) I think Broderson Music Studios provides excellent instruction. I am still early in the process, but have found Gary to be very encouraging and patient. He is able to answer questions in a way that is clear and understandable without ever feeling "dumbed down". I look forward to learning more!

Our event was a large company kids Christmas event, with kids ranging in age from infant to Teens and many different activities all going on at once. There were also many adults. Louis showed up to our event on time and jumped right in moving around performing magic for different groups. Louis is friendly, easy going, and professional. Our event was slightly crazy with kids moving all over the area, but Louis easily adjusted to the flow of the event. Kids and adults were amazed and intrigued by his magic tricks. Very entertaining. I would definitely recommend Louis and would hire him again!

Photo booth was so much fun and perfect for our evening! Ryan was very professional and efficient as we had people lined up all night for the photobooth. He printed copies for each person in the pictures and placed a copy in a memory book for us. The cost was very reasonable and fit within our budget! We were very happy and would recommend Magical Memories Entertainment to others!

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.
