"This is going to be a long but I think it's important for to know if you understand the integrity of this company. First, I rented a five in one bounce house, cotton candy machine, nacho warmer and cheese warmer, and hot dog warmer for a carnival party that I was having for my 5 year old. I had great discussions with Dee who walked me through finding out the requirements from the city and going over the order. She put together a great package for me and was amazing. I was doing a party at a city gazebo in Frisco that had electricity and I also had a back up generator. I thought I was good. The night before the party, I received a call from George to check in. He said he noticed as he was loading the truck that I did not have a generator, but he went ahead and put one on the truck just in case. I was thankful for the consideration but I figured I had it covered. On the day of the party, the team delivered the equipment and was very professional and showed me how to use the equipment and discussed pickup. The power was working and I didn't need a generator. We were up and running - for about 2 hours and then I blew a fuse at the park and could not get the power back on. My husband ran to the house and got our generator - which was acting up and not powerful enough! So, I called the crew that dropped the bounce house up (approximately 3pm) and at 4pm we were back up and running! They drove from Lewisville to Frisco, got me set up and hung out for another 2 hours until the party was over! Unbelievable customer service! Now, about the bounce house. WOW! It was a party for 5 year olds but the older siblings had a ball as well. Once we got the cotton candy going, I had so much fun spinning candy for the kids (and adults). It was so much fun and despite my 2 hour hiccup without power, it all worked out. I highly recommend using this company!"

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.
