I would 100% do business again with this group. They are good at what they do and made our event a great success! They are easy to talk to and went out of their way to be available for an extremely short notice event. The amount of service you get for the amount charged I would say is hard to beat!Aug 2, 2017Verified
-be on time not 30 minutes late -appearance needs to be professional (it was not) -overall professionalism neededMay 21, 2017VerifiedTwist A Mint Balloons's reply
We are very mindly of delays and avoid as many as possible. She was properly notified and why. Road delays can not always be avoided. As far as professionalism, due to temperatures we requested indoors....she was unable to comply...therefore, jackets were inorder...not my decision.... hers for professionalism ...therefore, please disreguard her comments.
He was amazing and the kids loved him! We will definitely work with him in the future for our fundraising events!Jun 12, 2016Verified
Seemed as if he kept pushing, the children for additional services that required them (their parents) to pay money(for cash tips), instead of focusing on the service we had paid for. Very confusing and frustrating to me. Also, had another gentlemen walking around the home that made the guest uncomfortable. Was also late. Will not use again.May 23, 2016Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?We do our best to provide quality entertainment a fair and affordable prices with respect to our customers and competitors. We offer charity, church, and school discounts and we can often customize to fit challenged budgets. Our quote includes travel/transportation fees. These vary depending on event location. If you are looking for a ballpark cost...figure the average at home party costing about the cost of a decent bicycle. Due this year's (2018) fuel pricing/distance the range is between about $155 - $165 if local and about $170 - $210 for the first hour for non local (up to about 1.5 - 2 hour ~ drive time (135 miles)). Since overhead is figured in the first hour the next hour(s) is/are much less ~ $45 - $55 per hour. (Sometimes, lesser figures for more than 4 hours).

We can also bring games including Carnival/School Carnival styles and coming soon Miniature Golf. (For an added cost.) So when you decide on us you will need to pick out what you want ...most of the time, with no change in price. (Except those listed as extra) Then be sure that you have requested enough time to do all you want at your event. (Balloon Twisting ..provide 3 - 5 minutes / person...
