Tips for Choosing the Right Bounce House Rental

Children’s parties are made more fun when there’s a bounce house rental for kids to play in.

Kids are hyperactive, and unless you want them running amok every few minutes in a party you should give them something to spend their energies in.

While having an endless stream of party games would be nice, why not rent a bounce house instead? These inflatable playgrounds offer the little ones all the fun they need for the day.

But not all bounce houses are made the same. You need to take the following factors into account when choosing the right bounce house for your party.

1. Pick the right kind.

Bounce houses are not just places to bounce around! There are dry and wet slides, obstacle courses, multiple storeys, and more kinds that are available. Choose one that’s a right match for your party theme.

While a more complicated setup is naturally more expensive, it provides a much better entertainment option especially for the older kids in your party.

2. Pick the right size.

Because it is inflatable, overloading the bounce house could cause serious injuries. Consider the weight limit for the bounce house. Make sure to ask the supplier how many children the house can safely hold. You may also want to rent multiple bounce houses for larger groups, to prevent overcrowding.

3. Pick the right company.

The right business to provide your bounce house rental should have a wide variety of inflatables to choose from. The company should be licensed, insured, and have great customer service. It should also take good care of its bounce houses, using non-toxic materials and keeping them clean at all times.

It’s important to ask about their safety measures for inflatables. Get a written contract from your rental company to make sure you are covered in case the unexpected happens.

Ask around for recommendations from family and friends. A great bounce house rental provider will have many satisfied customers.

When planned properly, having an inflatable or bounce house is the perfect investment for an unforgettable children’s party.

5 Fun Games You Can Play On Bouncy Castles or Inflatables

I bet that if you see a bouncy castle or bounce house, you’d like to jump right in! Looks so much fun, right?

If you’re thinking of renting inflatables for your event, be ready to have a play day of fun and tons of laughter.

Here are some games to consider for kids and kids at heart:

1. Obstacle Course

Get the type of bouncy castle or bounce house that has pillars and other elements you can use as obstacles. This will be a fun competition for the children as well as the parents. The adults can cheer their kids as they watch from outside the soft walls. You can also have a couple of adults be captains of each team so that the game could be a bit structured. Create a route for the children to walk through — a starting point and a finish line. Fastest group to get to the finish line wins.

2. Stop-Bounce

This inflatables version of musical statues is great for tiring the children out. All they have to do is jump as high as they want, then try to stop from bouncing once the music stops. Those that can’t steady themselves will be out of the game. If music isn’t available, you can just use “stop” and “go” as signals.

3. Tag

A basic game of tag but with a bouncy twist. Players can try to jump away so they wouldn’t be tagged.


How about those kids-at-heart, you ask? Fear not. Even though you’re way past your childhood, you can still play these fun bouncy castle games.

4. Sumo Wrestling

One of the fundamental aspects in Sumo Wrestling is to hold your ground when your opponent tries to take you down. Imagine how fun it will be once the players try holding their ground and they just can’t because their feet are wobbling from the soft bouncy platform. How can they even shove their opponent when they can’t even balance?

5. Dodgeball

Another fun game you can play is dodgeball. Regular dodgeball is fun. However, with bouncy castle dodgeball, you may be able to jump higher and leap further, but you definitely can’t land steadily. Plus, any movement from your other peers will influence your own movements.
