Terms & Conditions                         


It is the responsibility of the person/s hiring equipment to ensure that all reasonable steps are taken to avoid injury or cause damage to the equipment. Please ensure that the following safety instructions are followed:

1. NO adult should use any equipment that is supplied solely for children's use. These units are intended for use by persons up to the age of 12 years.  Please ensure no person over this age uses the equipment. Do not mix large and small children. Maximum user numbers  can be found on the unit.

2. A responsible adult (over 18 years old) must be supervising the equipment at ALL times. No person under the influence of drink or drugs or who is unwell should supervise or operate the equipment.

3. Always ensure the equipment is not overcrowded, and limit numbers according to the age and size of people using it. Always avoid a mix of large and small children at the same time. The maximum user number can be found written on the inflatable.

4. DO NOT allow anyone to bounce on the front safety step as children could easily bounce off the inflatable and get hurt. The step is there to assist users to get on and off!! Keep safety mats in the correct position at all times.

5. Ensure that no person who is pregnant, with a history of Heart, Neck or Back Problems, High Blood Pressure, Joint or Bone weakness or any person with a history of known medical disabilities are allowed to use the equipment. Also any person who feels unwell should be removed immediately.

6. ALL shoes, glasses, jewellery and badges and such like MUST be removed before using the equipment.

7. NO face paints, party poppers, coloured streamers, silly string, food, drink, water (hosepipes, water pistols etc), soapy water (to create foam!), sweets, chewing gum, pets, toys, mud, barbeques, smoking, shoes or sharp objects are to be allowed on or near the equipment. This will avoid both choking hazards and potential soiling of the unit. This charge is normally a minimum of £50.00 but may be more depending on the severity of the damage from soiling, facepaint and such like prodcuts. Any soiling, stain, cleaning damage will be charged as per contract.

8. Climbing, hanging or sitting on side walls is DANGEROUS and MUST NOT be allowed. Do not bounce on the front step.

9. Children should not be pushing, colliding, fighting, attempting somersaults, wrestling, running or behaving in a manner likely to cause injury, damage or distress to others or the equipment. Users should not bounce from wall to wall or carryout flying kicks at the inflatables walls.

10. DO NOT allow anyone to be on the inflatable during inflation or deflation as this could damage both the equipment and injure the user.

11. Ensure a safety zone of 6 feet (2 metres) around the equipment is kept clear at all times and use anchors provided.

12. The inflatable should not be used in high winds (max 24 mph) or wet conditions and should be switched off. After rain showers, any wetness, including bubbling (which is normal) can be dried with the aid of a towel. Bouncy castles and safety mats can also become slippery from early evening onwards, towards the end of the season due to dew (condensation) forming on the equipment. Please take extra care.

13. In the event that the blower stops working, ensure ALL users exit the inflatable immediately. Make sure the blower tube has not come loose, the deflation zip is still closed and that nothing is obstructing the blower. Failing all this, please contact us for possible further assistance.
