A job well done. Mr. Angelucci provided quality entertainment to both children and adults at the event for which he was hired. He offered the standard bag of tricks with his own sense of humor. The children were satisfactorily mesmerized for the hour long show and seemed genuinely disappointed when it was over. I would recommend Mr. Angelucci for your event should you need a magician. He is reasonably priced and offers an appealing show.

George the Magician was awesome at my son's first birthday party! We had about 100 people at a banquet hall and needed entertainment for the 20 kids there (ages between 1-6) mostly 3 and 4 year olds. He did an amazing job keeping the kids interested for about 45 minutes before we did the cake. He did magic tricks first which had my 4 year old son hysterically laughing :) Then the bubble show which all the kids really enjoyed. A lot of parents even said to me he's the best magician the have seen!! Very professional and was on time and very organized. I would highly recommend him for any kid parties looking for fun entertainment! Thanks George!

Excellent and professional communication throughout. George came on time, set everything up, and explained the functions of the equipment. He came later that evening, and picked up the equipment. His company made my party a success! I would recommend George Entertainment for your party and will do business with him again in the future

I called it "God's perfect timing! Here's our story...Our family, recently bowed our heads, as our 97 year old father, united with his family in Heaven. We were blessed to enjoy every single minute we spent together. God bless my dad, "Babe's" soul. I wanted to honor my dad, by having live music playing at his service, as my dad loved music... he had 3,001, 33 1/3 records. All his friends and family gathered to celebrate his adventurous life. Scott Samuels promptly contacted me after I left a message requesting a vocalist/guitarist! His professionalism is "above" all others. I have EVER met. The rest, is a moment in time, my memories will cherish for a lifetime. Thank you for creating this site for the world to utilize. Scott, you're a fantastic performer/true humanitarian. I could go on and on, but those memories are mine. Betsy, Babes baby "DAURTER" as dad would say!

We had the pleasure of attending a magical performance of "The Amazing Carson at our local Community Day event. Mr. Amazing's show was great family entertainment that included card tricks, magical escapes, classical manipulation acts, funny audience interactive participations, comedy tricks, close-up routines and sleight of hand magic. He amazed and delivered laughter to all ages (kids-seniors). He's a well renowned, skilled, warm, charismatic, hard-working, magician ( and a great guy ). I look forward to seeing more of his shows and highly recommended The Amazing Carson for your next event. He lives up to his moniker, he really is amazing ! Charles and Karen

Matt and Kelly are not only wonderful, kind hearted people but they are also a huge reason why our wedding was so memorable. We hired Rad and Kell for our wedding in November of 2017 at Everly at Railroad. This duo, along with their band, gave us the night of our dreams. The dance floor was packed, every second of every song. They were the highlight of the night and my guests could not stop talking about them. They kept everyone moving, from my grandparents to my 4 year old niece. Each person had a reason to dance and a song they HAD to get up for. Everyone loved singing along to Rad and Kell. A few lucky guests even got the chance to be part of the band, getting pulled on stage and relishing in their share of the spotlight for a song. Matt and Kelly were so easy to work with. They had our night mapped out musically for us, from ceremony instrumentals, to upbeat cocktail hour tunes, to introductions and traditional dances, Rad and Kell did not disappoint. When the dance floor opened, it filled up quickly. I remember even having to fight the crowd to find space, as the bride! Our guests were mesmerized by them! Working with Matt and Kelly was so seamless. Everything was easy and I knew I could trust them with the most important part of our day, the entertainment. They were excited, upbeat and they truly enjoyed playing for our guests. It was evident that our guests loved Rad and Kell just as much as they chanted “one more song” at 11pm as the venue was kicking us out. Thank you Matt and Kelly for all you did to contribute to our wedding. We will always remember the amazing time had by all, thanks to you and the band.

Had a surprise party for my wife's Masters program graduation. Hired Dan to entertain all the children, and that he did with great success. Dan was really great with the kids and they were thrilled with his awesome balloon creations. Prompt, courteous and a hit, I would hire Dan again and recommend him 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.
