Bounce House Rental Selection Ideas
Does your Party Rental company help with the selection of your event items? Knowing and asking about the participant age group and activity level can make the difference in selecting the right inflatable, bounce house rental or obstacle course rental.
Toddler Bounce House Rentals
For instance, 1 to 3 year olds enjoy the Jungle Toddler with bright colors and small ride ons like the Toddler Jungle Bounce House. Parents are able to easily view their little ones from the top allowing the little ones to have freedom but also wave back to their parents.
Preschool Bounce House Selections
Consequently, the 3 to 6 age crowd enjoy their independence but also the success of doing it themselves on our Party 3 and 1 a bounce house rental that combines an obstacle course scaled for the younger crowd. For bigger events, a combo bouncer like our Wizard 4n1 provides the bounce house with slide for more play area and fun.
Elementary School Obstacle Course Rentals and Combo Bouncers
For the younger elementary school kids, a combo bouncer or obstacle course tailored for this crowd is a highlight for these kids. Most important is the ability of the younger kids to complete an activity with limited assistance in order to feel that sense of accomplishment. Even though an obstacle course may look neat, keep in mind the time and attention span in completing the activity. In addition to obstacle course and bounce house inflatables, carnival games, balloon pop games and interactive games with lights and sensors are fun for this age group.
Middle School and High School Party Rentals
Most obstacle courses like our Boot Camp, Black Ops or Delta Force are perfect for dual lane racing. The middle school and high school crowd enjoy racing each other on obstacle courses and experiencing the thrill of our inflatable zip line, bungee trampoline or wipeout game. Large obstacle courses can also manage a large crowd with a throughput of around 300 kids per hour.
Adult Obstacle Courses
Adults also get into the action on the rock wall and adult sized inflatables such as our giant wrecking ball game and our extra long Boot Camp . The latest craze for the adult set is a wipeout game that includes a mechanical boom requiring skills in jumping and ducking or the wrecking ball option that tests balance, strength and agility. Along with interactive games, Slip and slides, dunk tank rentals, cash cube or money machines are often great party ideas. Just don’s forget the margarita machine for great drinks.
Rental Season Breakdown
Water slides are typically great event rentals from April to September and can range in size from 18 feet that is good for the 4 to 12 year olds to the ever popular 27 feet tall water slide with slip and slide attached for the adventurous 8 year old to adult. During the summer, items like obstacle courses, dry slides and bounce houses can get extremely hot and should be utilized with caution. During the winter, the cash cube / money machine are really popular. Just remember that the cash cube can be used with real or fake money, coupons or tickets.
Plan ahead for Potential Weather Events
Sometimes having an alternate plan for weather can be easier than you think. In most cases, bounce houses, water slides, zip lines and obstacle courses have limitations when it comes to rain and wind. For example, when winds are sustained above 20 mph or gusts are stronger than 20 miles per hour, inflatables can become dangerous and will need to be let down or not setup. Most larger party rental companies will have the flexibility and inventory to move an outdoor event indoors if you have a little flexibility on the items for your event. If an alternative plan is needed, make sure to know the power availability, ceiling height, size of indoor facility in advance and make the call early enough to give the party rental company time to load and setup the modified party rental items.
