I have worked with Dan Brinkman and Party Animals for 20 years and hope to work with the entire crew for another 20 years! I am a GM at a local mall and I cannot imagine hosting an event without Party Animals. From Breakfast with Santa, Kids’ Fair, Magical Night of Giving, Easter Bunny, to any event, Party Animals is the one to call. Dan Brinkman and his associates are not only true professionals, but it is obvious they enjoy what they do. Once they arrive on property, my staff is no longer needed; they take charge of all activities and keep everyone entertained from the first moment. I cannot say enough good things about this company. If you need entertainment for events, parties, etc., call Party Animals!

I was pleased with the services Elite Entertainment provided. We had booked for a Hummer Limo but due to Hurricane Harvey, the limo was totaled. Elite Entertainment offered to reimburse the money or to give us a different option. We went with the other Limo due to being limited on time. The Limo arrived early and was there every moment. I highly recommend.

We booked Tony for my mom's 60th birthday party. He arrived an hr early and was already set up before I came!!!! He played a variety of music that had EVERYONE on the dance floor. Very professional... Non-stop music! Oh, and he also MC'ed for us too!!! I was sore the next morning because I stayed on the dance floor the entire night. #1 choice when choosing a DJ. We will definitely book Tony for another event!

DJ Texas Outlaw is the BEST Soca DJ out there hands down, not to mention the winner of the "Best Soca DJ" award at the Caribbean Achievement Awards in Houston. He has DJed a number of events for ACCA (Arizona Caribbean Cultural Association) and did an OUTSTANDING Job. He has also been one of the most popular DJs for the past 4yrs at the various events for Phoenix Caribbean Carnival, not to mention the DJ for the "Roti Shak Revelers" Mas Band. His knowledge and expertise in the realm of Caribbean Music is untouchable for every genre. There are DJs that just play music and there are DJs that thoroughly love the music they play, DJ Texas Outlaw is someone that loves the music which makes all the difference in the world when DJing. I would highly recommend DJ Texas Outlaw for any event requiring a DJ. You defnitely will not be disappointed...

One of my favorite bands. The Silverado Band played for me on multiple occasions and filled our club to capacity. Great music, awesome entertainment and best of all, great people to deal with. Unlike most other bands, there is no arrogance to deal with in the Silverado Band. Great down home people and a pleasure to work with!

    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.
