NJ Bounce House Safety


Please read the following guide on NJ bounce house safety. Our staff is always available to answer any additional questions you may have.

1) SUPERVISION IS THE MOST IMPORTANT RULE: The safety of the children depends on you.  Absolutely DO NOT let children play on the inflatable or NJ bounce house without adult supervision. Adult supervision is necessary to enforce these rules for safe operation of the inflatable. As the adult supervisor, you should position yourself in close proximity of the entrance to the ride and be prepared to assist riders when they enter/exit the ride.  As the lessee of this inflatable unit, the safety of all the riders is your responsibility.  Please adhere to the manufacturers guidelines found in front of the ride.

2) Age Groups: Only compatible age groups and sizes shall play on the inflatable or NJ bounce house at the same time.  Always ensure that the Inflatable is not overcrowded, and limit numbers according to the age and size of children using it. Try to avoid large and small children from using it at the same time. Ensure children are not pushing, colliding, fighting or behaving in a manner likely to injure or cause distress to others.

3) Do not allow anyone to be on the inflatable equipment during inflation or deflation as this is DANGEROUS.

4) No food, drink or chewing gum on or around the Inflatable. This will avoid a choking risk and keep the unit clean. (Please note if the inflatable or any other equipment is collected in a dirty condition the Customer will incur a cleaning charge of $500.00).

5) Once inflatable equipment is set up by Jumping Celebrations trained staff, it should not be moved.  Keep the inflatable unit away from swimming pools and other sources of water at all times.

6) All riders MUST REMOVE SHOES, GLASSES, JEWELRY AND BADGES before playing in the inflatable.

7) No face paints, party poppers, colored streamers or silly string to be used either on or near the Inflatable. (Please note these products will cause damage to the Inflatable that cannot be repaired).

8) Pre-existing Health Conditions: Pregnant women, individuals with pre-existing injuries, and others susceptible to injury from falls, bumps or bouncing are not permitted in or on the inflatable unit at any time.

9) NO smoking or barbeques on or around the Inflatable.

10) General Misuse: Climbing, hanging or sitting on walls is dangerous and must not be allowed. Do not allow the inflatable rub up against any surface. Never place a water hose or water in general onto the inflatable. If the inflatable should become wet, have an adult wipe down unit before riders return. Inflatable should not be wet when riders enter the unit unless the inflatable is a water slide.

11) Alterations: No alteration in or attachments to the inflatable unit are allowed, period.

12) No pets, toys or sharp instruments on the inflatable or any other equipment at anytime.

13) Do not allow anyone to bounce on the front safety step as this is dangerous!

14) Flipping/Wrestling/Piling: Improper use of the inflatable includes flipping in the air, wrestling, and riders piling on themselves.  Such activity may result in neck and back injuries to riders. Please ensure that children are not attempting somersaults and are clothed appropriately and that nothing can fall out of their pockets.

15) DO NOT USE RIDE IN INCLEMENT WEATHER. In case of rain, strong winds (at or in excess of 15 mph), thunderstorms, lightening, or severe cold weather (below 40 degrees) children should immediately exit the inflatable.  The blower should thereafter be switched off and removed, and the unit allowed to deflate.  Then, cover with additional tarp provided by Jumping Celebrations. If the ride becomes wet inflate and let dry before using it again. Please remember wet vinyl can be very slippery and safety should always be considered first.

16) Deflation: Deflate ride in high wind conditions (over 15 MPH).  Should the unit deflate, do the following: First, have all children exit the unit immediately.  Next, if the motor has stopped, make sure that it has been unplugged.  If the motor is still running, check the air intake on the side of the motor for blockage, and check both blower tubes on the inflatable unit to make sure that they are tightly tied off.  Never all riders in or on a partially inflated unit.

17) Negligence or Abuse: The following fees may be assessed for negligence or abuse of inflatable

1. Spilled food, drink or the use of Silly String could result in a $100-$500 Cleaning Fee.

2. Negligence and damage to unit could result in a $400-$1000 Repair Fee.
