However it is advised that castles are switched off in adverse & wet conditions due to safety reasons as described in our health & safety section located at the top of this page.
Most of our inflatables are fitted with a rain cover, however this cannot guarantee 100% rain protection due to the nature of the inflatables. when an inflatable bounces around the roof is bound to move around and rain will leak in slightly.
Also it is a brief rain/ shower cover and not designed to be in use in torrential downpoors, especially given that the back and front of the inflatable has at least a 12ft hole in the front : ) Please bear this in mind when selecting an inflatable.

This is done to avoid confusion, the price of certain entertainment varies depending on mainly the location and date of the hire, if it requires staffing, generators, 3rd party hire equipment or the number of days required, Therefore the price listed is the base price and varies based on all of these factors, However in 99% of these cases, the price is the price so don’t panic. Besides, all of these factors will be explained and a price given prior to you placing a booking with us.

23. What if it rains?
Most of our castles have built in shower covers so can still be used in showery conditions. Bouncy castles should not be used in very heavy rain due to safety reasons. We operate a 24/7 policy and if you’re brave enough to have it, were brave enough to bring it. Cancellations due to bad weather still fall under our cancellation policy which can be found by clicking the cancellations tab at the top of this page.
24. Can you set up on concrete/driveways/gravel/decking?
We can set up our castles/obstacle course/slide/sumo suits and any other hire items on hard standing but we must be advised of this at the time of booking to ensure we bring the correct anchorage. In some circumstances we use a simple raw bolt drill tool to secure the bolts in place so that the castle/ inflatable remains completely safe all day. If your unsure about this, please contact us asap. BOLTS WILL NOT BE FILLED IN. Please ensure you have the correct mastic to suit your service. If you have, our staff will be happy to help.
25. Can the bouncy castle be set up on a slope?
Yes, this is possible. However please let us know prior to our arrival to discuss the slope, certain slopes may be too steep for certain items so please advise us at the time of booking to avoid disappointment.
Please make sure all dog do, garden items such as garden toys, swings, slides, patio furniture, rubbish etc. are removed from the area where the castle is to be sited.
At busy times we are unable to wait for the area to be cleared as we will have other deliveries. Therefore, so not to disappoint other customers, we may have to return at the end of the deliveries to set up your castle.
27. Can you deliver with no side entrance and take castle though the house?
Most of our items can fit through standard doors so this shouldn’t be a problem, However some of our inflatables are huge and will require a proper entrance so please advise us of your access type at the time of booking to avoid disappointment on the day.
Bouncy castles are often bigger and heavier than most people expect and use large sack trucks to move them. Unfortunately if it should rain, water will get inside the inflatable and this tends to drain out whilst being removed.... sometimes on your carpet so please bear this in mind as we cannot be responsible for any damages should they occur due to the castle being wet or general damage from the castle being taken through your house, always check with us on booking that the inflatable you have chosen will fit through a doorway. Accidents do happen and we can not be held responsible for this when we are expected to take outdoor equipment through someones home.
28. Do you supply safety instructions?
We provide detailed safety instructions with every hire.
29. Is there an age limit for children using the inflatables?
Yes, all our castles will have specific age specifications which can be found by clicking on each individual item and reading the specification box.
30. What happens with regards to trailing cables?
All cables are 240v blue commando plugs that are water resistant, however due to the nature of our work it is very impractical to cover the cables up and in some cases this can lead to overheating. As such we do not cover or tape down any cables. If you have any concerns over this, please let us know at least 7 days in advance of the booking and make sure your concerns are clearly displayed in the customer notes.
31. What about liquids such as foam, bubbles and other solutions?
With regards to liquids, all products are the most friendly of products available. we do have cosh sheets available on all products which can be downloaded from our Health & Safety section. CLICK HERE TO VISIT OUR PAGES
3.3 Who is liable for the safeguard of the equipment?
All items delivered to you are left in your care whilst we are absent until such time as we are able to collect the item(s) you have hired. In some cases this may not be as agreed due to circumstances out of our control. Please ensure that all equipment is kept in a safe and secure location, especially in peak season where collections can be as late as 2am due to the high volume of work we undertake. Remember all theft from property is the responsibility of the customer/ hirer, not our company.
3.4 Dress Code.
Due to the ever changing work load of our entertainment staff throughout the day, it has been difficult choosing an appropriate uniform. When we work for entertainment agencies they often prefer us to use unmarked vehicles and clothing, when we work for corporate functions were often requested to wear there corporate dress code to match other suppliers, outdoor events are usually hi viz provided by the organiser and there is a whole host of other dress codes varying massively from wedding factions to private parties. As such, we now request that all clients inform us of what dress code they require if its a sensitive issue or we will select an appropriate code for you.
