months in advance.

waiver stipulating all the safety rules and guidelines to be followed. Then you may provide
your own adult supervision. We will gladly accommodate you with supervision for an
additional fee if required.

units will be picked up within 1 hour of the end of

event before your invitees arrive. If no electricity is available a generator can be rented for
an additional fee.

will be delivered anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours before your event. Check with us

Q. What area is needed to setup a inflatable?
A. Ideally, we need a flat surface, preferably grass. The area must be clear of stones and
sharp objects. Inflatables also can be setup on cement or in large indoor areas such as
halls. The area size will depend on which inflatable you rent. Ask for dimensions when you
call. There must be access to a 110-volt electrical outlet. If your party is in a park where
there is no electricity, then we will provide a generator for an additional fee.

depending on the item, may increase risk of injury. Keep a good watch on weather
forecasts for your local area.
