What do I need to know when Hiring a Jumping Castle?

Posted on 29 May 2017

For those who haven't hired a jumping castle before, here are some good tips to know and ask when enquiring about your castle hire.

1. Check out the area you have available to put the castle on
It needs to be flat and preferably grass as it requires to be pinned down. If it will be on concrete then it will require sandbags for weights to hold it down for safety.
All castles will require a metre extra clear on each side for safety.

2. Have you power nearby for the blowers or power near that can be reached by an extension cord ?
If not a generator will be required which will incur an extra cost to your hire

3. Make sure the Jumping castle Hire Company you are hiring from have public liability insurance encase someone gets hurt
Ask for a copy for your records

4. Make sure the Jumping Castle Hire Company has all their electrical cords tested and tagged
. All electrical appliances and cords must be checked and tagged for safety and also an electrical safety cutoff adapter should be used with your hire.

5. Will the company have safety procedures in place such as safety barriers to go around the blowers, mats for getting on and off the castle and a blue card where there are going to be children using the castle.
This is so important so all children will stay safe. Check out the company's feedback or previews online for other peoples experiences. Other peoples feedback can give you a great view to how the company's services have been on previous hires.

6. What happens if you pay a deposit and it rains or you have to cancel you need to know what are the conditions We all need to know this as money is so valuable today and we cant afford to lose it on bad experiences
A good Jumping Castle Hire Company will more than likely give your deposit back if it rains or there is a really legitimate reason you cannot go ahead with your hire or alternatively will let you use the deposit again on another occasion within a reasonable time that you both agree to

7. Who is going to supervise the castle which is vitality important
All castles need to be supervised for safety of course and your own piece of mind.
Inflatable Castles are fun and easy to use but incidents can happen such as too many people on at once or children accidentally falling on each other and also someone watching to make sure nothing dangerous likes sticks ,shoes or food is being taken onto the castle while using them.

8. To answer a common question asked by many customers,
Can we have our castle in the Park ?
The answer to this is you will require a permit from the local council for permission on this They will require a lot of conditions for this to happen so it pays to check this our first before going ahead with a hire and finding out you cant have one

What is the Blended Festival?

Posted on 17 April 2017

For the Second year now the IFYS (Intergrated Family and Youth Services), hosted the 'Blended' Festival at Coolum's Tickle Park on Saturday 8th April 2017 on Queensland's Sunshine Coast.. It combined youth culture, art and music along with youth information and support services for any age wishing to attend in a safe fun free environment along with other activities for all ages.
Youth week and Blended are about celebrating young people who have accomplished a broad range of achievements and have contributed positively to the image of young people within the community.
As part of the day The Bounce House was there with the Basketball Bungee Run for all ages to enjoy and was fully used from 2pm to 6pm. This is an inflatable castle with 2 inflatable runways that have 2 people at one end on either side wearing a vest that has a bungee cord attached to it and they then have to run with the ball and to try to dunk it in the hoop at the other end.!! So much fun and so enjoyed by players and watchers as they get pulled back from the bungee cords every time.!!
Other activites and stalls were also there early on in the day which included SeaFM radio Broadcasting live , facepainting, a red frog skateboarding workshop, ishootphotobooth, food and drink stalls and also 2 stages of entertainment from bands and soloists showing us their musical talents.

Hot Weather and Jumping Castles

Posted on 24 March 2017

March has been a month of very hot weather and we at The Bounce House were fortunate enough to be able to enjoy all our weekends with parties and event hires with our super fun castles in that heat.
On one occasion we had the hottest Sunday ever and we advised our clients to make sure they drank lots of water during their time of hire and to take it easy on the castle, the boxing ring, ensuring they did not over exert themselves. We also placed the castle so that the shade would come over the boxing ring castle sooner rather than later because of the hot sun on this particular day.
Having a wet towell can help during the day to cool hot faces and also having a light coloured towell placed over the jumping area of the castle if it is too hot with bare feet.. Another good idea is to wear socks on a hot castle, saving your feet and adding some slippery fun to your castle hire!
If you do have any questions in regard to the weather conditions when hiring a jumping castle please dont hesitate to give us a call and we will be very happy to discuss any queries you may have.
Safety is our priority concern along with our clients happiness in our service.

Phone Helen on 0401358070 anytime to discuss you queries
