What do we do if it rains while the Moon Bounce is up?
If it rains and winds are
less than 15mph, leave the
jump up. Once
the rain slows down or stops, wipe down the
inside of the Moon Bounce and let the kids back in.
The kids do not
care if it has rained - they just want to jump.
Note: The vinyl gets very slippery when wet, so make sure it
is dry. If winds are more than 15mph the jump must be
deflated and covered with the tarp behind the jump.

less and therefore are rented for less. The higher quality jumps with the latest safety features and

pay more. If you

Why do I have to rent for the day rather than the 3 - 4 hours I
think I will need it for?
We used to do hourly rentals and
found that almost all customers needed it longer.
The party started later or guest showed up late and/or
they did not get to use the jump as much as they would have
liked. It is very rare that we come to pick up a jump after an
8 hour rental and it is not being used to the last minute.
Renting a moon bounce should be the least of your
worries during the day of your event.
Having it show up late or setup or taken down while your guests are
there can be stressful and inconvenient.
Do I need an attendant?
There must ALWAYS be someone
supervising the moon bounce.
The most important duties of an attendant are limiting
the number of kids in the moon bounce at one time and making
sure that the kids are all of similar size.
What are the rules when using a Moon Bounce?
No food or drink, no shoes, no
sharp objects, no visible metal zippers, no medical conditions
including pregnancy, no wresting/roughhousing, no hanging on
the netting, no flips, no Silly String or Sand.
Can you set the Moon Bounce up on cement?
Yes, the Moon Bounce will be
secured with sand bags rather than stakes.
However, it is HIGHLY recommended that the Moon Bounce
be set up on grass whenever possible. It is possible that someone could slip getting into or out of
the moon bounce and hit the ground.
The cement is unforgiving when this happens.
There is an additional fee for hard surface setups.
Can you set the Moon Bounce up anywhere in my yard?
The Moon Bounce needs to be
within 75 feet of an outlet.
Longer cords can be used, but the blower will lose
power, as the extension cord gets longer.
The ground should be as level as
more than an 8-inch difference in height from one end to the
other. If there
is more than that, the kids will end up bouncing down hill and
bump into each other.
