General Inflatable Safety Rules
There are several things that should be avoided when using a bounce house to ensure the safety and enjoyment of all participants:
- No rough play or horseplay. This includes pushing, shoving, or tackling other children in the bounce house.
- No food or drinks allowed inside the bounce house.
- No sharp objects or jewelry should be worn in the bounce house. These can cause punctures in the inflatable and can also be a safety hazard for other children.
- No flipping or acrobatic stunts. This can cause injuries and also can damage the inflatable.
- No smoking or open flames near the inflatables.
- No pets allowed inside the bounce house.
- No adult should go inside the bounce house with children, unless it’s for supervision.
- No jumping on the walls of the bounce house as it can cause damage to the inflatable and also can be a safety hazard.
It’s important to follow the safety guidelines and rules provided by the manufacturer or inflatable rental company, and also to supervise the children when they are using the bounce house.
- A RESPONSIBLE ADULT MUST SUPERVISE INFLATABLE AT ALL TIMES. Do not allow children to enter the inflatable without 100% CONSTANT ADULT SUPERVISION.
- All riders must remove shoes, jewelry, eyeglasses, combs, hair clips or any other sharp or hard objects that may cause injury to children or the inflatable prior to entering ANY inflatable. (Dry Rentals, best if kids wear socks for sanitary reasons)
- NO Silly String or Confetti
- NO hanging on water hose, safety nets or basketball rims. Damage repair cost will range from $80 to $225
- Max 6-8 Kids at a time on any inflatable
- Max 3 Kids or one adult at the top of slides at a time
- Absolutely NO food, drink, gum, candy, or silly string inside inflatable
- NO flips, wrestling, running, pushing, climbing nets or walls, or any other aggressive behavior that could injure another child. Do not let riders bounce against the side netting, sides, or entrance of inflatable
- NO jumping off top of slides
- Slide landing area should be clear before next child goes down the slide
- Only children of comparable age and size should use inflatable at the same time. Mixing children of different sizes will greatly increase the risk of injury
- It is NOT recommended for children to sit or lay down while other children are bouncing around them, as a jumping child could fall down on top of a sitting or lying child causing injury
- STOP the children from bouncing and have them exit the bouncer immediately if winds exceed 15 M.P.H. or rain, or any other condition which may cause an unsafe or questionable condition
- Water added to dry units will result in a cost from $50 to $100 according to size of unit
- If the blower motor stops: Have the children calmly exit the inflatable. Most often the cause is an overloaded circuit or a piece of debris in front of the blower intake. Reset the circuit breaker and make sure the blower is plugged into a dedicated circuit. Clear any debris away from the intake on the blower
- FAILURE TO USE GOOD JUDGMENT AND TO FOLLOW THESE SAFETY RULES CAN RESULT IN SERIOUS INJURY. THE OPERATOR MUST ALWAYS INSURE THE INFLATABLE IS PROPERLY STAKED and/or WEIGHTED DOWN & SUPERVISED BY AN ADULT INSURING ALL SAFETY RULES ARE FOLLOWED ACCORDINGLY. ALSO DAMAGE CAUSED BY RENTERS NEGLIGENCE TO ANY OF THE RULES CAN RESULT IN A COST UP TO THE VALUE OF THE UNIT
