Book a Bounce House and Make Your Party Fun

Bouncy castles are hugely entertaining and kids love them.  Let’s be honest adults love them too although most won’t admit it.  They are colourful, attention grabbing and whether they are at a party, carnival, school event or theme park there is usually a lineup of kids waiting their turn to start jumping.  They come with bouncing platforms, rides and inflatable games.  Let’s talk about how to book a bounce house and make your party fun!

Party Rentals

How do you go about renting a bounce house for your party?  It’s pretty easy actually there are tons of rental companies all over that would be more than happy to book your party.  You can book one or more bounce houses and you can keep them as long as you need them.  Renting a bounce house isn’t that expensive but the bigger the castle the more they are going to cost.  Here is a look at the variety of bounce houses that are available to you.

Keep the Party Rolling

Bouncy castles allow you to just let the kids jump, slide and entertain themselves but there are plenty of games that can be played on them too.  There are bounce houses with mazes, slides or even jousting platforms.  Kids can compete for prizes but do so safely, if one gets knocked off while jousting no one is going to get hurt.

Buying or Renting

If you have a couple of kids and birthday parties are a pretty regular event around your house then you may think of buying an inflatable rather than renting for each and every part.  On the one hand it may be cheaper to buy than to continually rent and you can call around or look online to check out the prices.  You also get to use them year round rather than just waiting for a birthday.  There are two drawbacks to buying your own bounce house.  The first is the upfront cost, you will pay far more buying than you will for a single rental.  The other drawback is that you don’t get the variety that you would have if you rented.  If your daughter wants a castle for her party and your son wants a pirate ship which one will you buy?  Renting can give you more flexibility.

A bouncy castle can make your party a ton of fun and the kids will have a blast, make no mistake you might even find an adult or two sneaking in a few bounces too.

Bounce Houses for Adults

Bounce Houses for Adults

Bounce houses are often associated with kids and kids’ parties, adults look on with a tiny bit of envy because they look like fun but think that this kind of fun isn’t for them.  Not true at all, in fact bounce houses for adults are almost as popular as the kinds for kids.  Rental companies that provide bounce houses do nearly as many corporate events as they do parties.  You can even find bounce houses at weddings as entertainment for the guests.

Hiring a bounce house for an adult party is a bit different than hiring one for kids and there are different things you need to look for.  Let’s look at what you need for an adult party rather than the typical kids party.

Bigger Size

This one is kind of obvious but you need a considerably bigger inflatable for adults than  you do for kids.  You still want to have enough room for everyone to be able to jump and bounce safely so these models are usually wider and taller than models designed for kids.

More Depth

These inflatables have to bear more weight so the base is going to be thicker.  It will reduce the chance of someone tripping or having an accident and more air makes it easier to bear the additional weight of an adult.

Different Styles

Kids parties are usually based around a theme, pirates, superheroes or dinosaurs for instance but adults want more function.  Bounce houses for adults have different shapes and unique patterns on the vinyl rather than being modeled after a popular kids theme.

Double Check for the Description

Renting an adult bounce house is probably going to start with an online search, when you find something that appeals to you then you want to make sure it is actually an adult model.


Once you have selected the correct bounce house and it has been delivered to your party site the last thing to check off your list is the setup.  The rental company will take care of doing this for you but you should know what to expect.  Once the house is inflated it should be anchored in place.  The fans that blow it up should be shut off and the ropes that secure it to the pegs are secure.  The castle should be clean and inflated with enough pressure.  No one should be allowed on there with shoes or any sharp objects.  It should be clean and free of debris so your guests can enjoy the experience.
