We used Jody for my company's Christmas party as entertainment for the kids. He arrived early and even started a few minutes before scheduled time. He was very nice and talented. The kids really enjoyed his creations and some adults even had him make balloon art for them. It was a success!!!

Since I moved to the Austin area 3 years ago I have been thru 4 other Karaoke Companies and never called them back.. Giving Todd a 5 star job, this guy has personality and knows what he is doing.. Todd will be hearing from me again for my next Karaoke & DJ Job.. PS.. There is a reason why he cost just a little more than the other Karaoke & DJ companies I worked with.. He knows what he is doing.... Will book again..

I am not one for giving 5-star reviews. They seem disingenuous. But with Gregory Hoffman and GGC Productions, 5 stars was the only possible rating. Gregory not only listened to all our concerns and suggestions, and played all the music we wanted to hear, but he helped coordinate the flow of the reception with his great personality and got our guests shaking their groove things on the floor. Seriously, the photos of my uncle, who had just recovered from a quintuple bypass, doing the "Harlem Shake" are priceless. From the very beginning of the search process, I knew I wanted GGC Productions to be our DJ. Gregory responded to emails almost immediately, and was a great value compared to other DJs with the same services and experience. He made us feel completely comfortable throughout the entire planning process. Most brides know that getting some vendors to answer a phone call or email can be next to impossible. Not only was Gregory quick to respond, he even initiated contact with me again after the Christmas and New Year's holidays just to see how wedding planning was going! When he couldn't tour the venue with my fiance, coordinator, and I on the day we had scheduled, he later went to the tour the venue on his own. Without me even asking. He made the changes to our layout that were necessary to make our dance floor perfect, and he incorporated my fiance's original song into our playlist seamlessly. He didn't even complain when we only got the recording file to him 3 days before the event. I wholeheartedly recommend Gregory Hoffman and GGC Productions for your wedding (or any event)! He is the best Austin has to offer.

Nic Dante and The Revue Show have been a part of almost every milestone in my life. Every celebration has been surrounded by their company and music. I just recently hired them for my wedding and it was a blast! It wouldn’t have been as fun without them! Every person that attended the wedding told me how great they were. Extreme talent and professionalism and we refuse to hire any one else.

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.
