We hired Matias recently to help us with entertainment for a corporate event for a huge number of geeks (aka IT developers) at Teak on the Hudson, Hoboken. It was a decision we are more than thrilled that we made. Matias was wonderful with and charismatic with all attendees. He performed roving style magic while guests arrived and then an outstanding show which was the highlight of the event. Smiles were everywhere, amazement was plentiful, and everyone was beyond impressed with what Matias had to offer! He displayed the epitome of professionalism and was a delight to work with. We would most certainly hire Matias again and would recommend him for any private or corporate function where entertainment is desired! Thank you Matias! We are really amazed with the level of professionalism and the dozen of awesome emotions we have enjoyed.

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.

Honestly a great artist. I needed a face painter for my nieces 10th birthday party and Sara was fantastic. Supper friendly with the kids and she knew what she was doing. Whatever the kids asked for she could do. I was nervous that the kids wouldn't like it but she was really sweet and genuinely likes painting and entertianing the kids. It was so nice not to have to worry about where the kids were the whole time. I was able to leave them with her and grab something to eat in the other room while she painted faces. Would 100% refer her to anyone looking for some entertainment for a kids party.

DJ Anthony was probably one of the best DJ's I've ever had the pleasure to listen to. Anthony was the DJ at my 40th birthday party. The guests ranged from newborn to adults in their 80's. The music diversity was perfect and had everyone enjoying themselves. My guests and I were on the dance floor the ENTIRE NIGHT and had the absolute best time ever! I will be asking Anthony to DJ for me in the future....I will be recommending him to friends....I will tell everyone how wonderful he is! I can't say enough positive things about DJ Anthony!!!!

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.

Ginger was very responsive and professional from the start. On the day of my Son's first Birthday party, she was punctual, polite and a joy for the kids to be around. She is truly a "master" of her craft. Her face paintings were fun and creative. We ended up with just our five kids in attendance and the party could have easily turned "sour" without her. With the small party, she finished the face paintings earlier than planned. She then offered to "close" early and charge us a smaller fee, which I agreed to. I thought that was extremely thoughtful of her. I would hire her again in a heartbeat. Thank you for a job well done Ginger!

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!

Jay and Vinny were the MVP's of our wedding. We began our DJ search as the first task in preparation for our wedding. We met a dozen guys calling themselves 'DJ's' and had a bad feeling with each one. But the moment I met Jay, I knew VJ Entertainment would not only provide the entertainment for my wedding but we wouldn't have to worry about anything. They were quick, professional, reasonable in price (looking back at the reception, beyond reasonable- we really got more than our money's worth), and highly skilled in their craft. Communicating our song choices and musical genre choices was a painless process. Jay was experienced and adept at reading the room. I had a feeling he was a pro and he proved me right within the first 20 minutes of the reception. Following our personal musical choices, Jay moved quickly from song to song until he found the right vibe that had everyone on the dance floor. He made a late Thursday night wedding feel like Saturday night at a club when it needed to; then he effortlessly changed the ambiance so that everyone in attendance was weepy-eyed watching my wife dance with her father. Vinny was the greatest MC I'd ever seen at a reception and we knew we were lucky to have him work our wedding. He ignited the energy in the room from the start and kept it burning for four hours. He Jedi mind-tricked the crowd to embrace the maid of honor's toast, making her feel loose where she had been nervous. As far as the first dance, the mother-son dance and the father-daughter dance, he left the timing up to us. He remained visible and told us to give him a nod if we wished to fade the song out. Every guest we speak to since the reception comment first on how great the DJ's were. Friends of ours are getting married in September and want to use VJ Entertainment. As a cherry topping on the whole flawlessly positive experience, VJ were able to provide photo booth services that had everyone engaged and excited. I can't recommend VJ Entertainment enough. We were putting together a wedding on a very tight budget and finding VJ felt a lot like finding a surprise $50 bill in your jeans. I have worked in the entertainment business, I have been involved in helping to plan dozens of weddings and I have personally known countless 'DJ's,' but I have never seen such professionalism, passion, skill and speed in my adult life as we experienced with VJ. I truly believe that if we had went with another group our wedding would have not been successful. Thank you Jay and Vinny! Thank you VJ Entertainment!!! - Sean and Carolyn Block

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.
