Pump It Up Frequently Asked Questions

General Pump It Up FAQ

How long are you closed for?
Our location is temporarily closed in accordance with the State Of California Executive Order N-33-20. If you have a party scheduled with us and we are still closed on the day of your event, we will automatically suspend your deposit and postpone your event. Anyone whose party is automatically postponed will receive an email confirmation of the postponement and you will be free to re-book with no restrictions when we reopen. We hope your families stay healthy and happy and hope to see you soon!
Are your inflatables safe and clean?
Absolutely! Our inflatables have been custom designed to account for heavy, indoor use. Each inflatable goes through rigorous testing for all ages before it is released to any of our facilities nationwide. At our facility, each inflatable is anchored to the floor, wall, and/or ceiling to provide extra stability. Entrances and tunnels are wiped down after each party and every inflatable is cleaned and inspected on an ongoing maintenance schedule.
Are socks required?
Yes, socks are required to play on the inflatables.
Is each guest, including adults, required to have a completed/signed waiver?
For insurance purposes, every guest who enters our arenas must have a completed waiver. All guests under 17 years of age must have a waiver completed and signed by a parent/guardian. For your convenience, family members aged 17 years or younger may be included on the same waiver. Additional waivers are available at Pump It Up or online.
Are there any age/height restrictions?
Yes. For safety purposes, children under 34 inches are NOT permitted in or on the equipment for any reason (even if accompanied by an adult).

Our fun and friendly staff will provide supervision in the inflatable play areas so you can relax and enjoy the party!

Can a guest play while wearing a cast?
In the interest of safety, any guest wearing a cast or other motion limiting medical device (splint, sling, or brace) will not be permitted to participate on the inflatables.

How do I schedule a Pump It Up party?
It's easy! Just give us a call and we'd be happy to reserve your special day and time! For your convenience, you can also request a date or book your party online. You can also adjust your party package closer to the party based on your final kid count.
How many guests can I invite?
Please refer to the Birthday Party section of the website for the designated guest count. Additional guests are welcome! If your head count should rise above your reserved package, you will be charged an additional fee per each additional child. Fees vary by package. There is seating for 32 children in the party rooms, and we do not recommend a total headcount of over 35.
What food items can be brought into the facility?
You may bring: cake, cupcakes, cookies, prepackaged chips or pretzels, prepackaged vegetable trays, prepackaged fruit trays and bottled water. We’re sorry, but no other outside food is permitted. You will incur a fee of $30 per medium tray if non-permitted/outside food/drink is brought to your party. All food will be served in our party room during the last 40 minutes of your party. * For safety of the children, any cooler you bring will be stored outside building until we're ready to setup.
What if I need to reschedule my party?
To avoid additional charges, we require at least 15 days advance notice if you need to cancel or reschedule your party (your party must be rescheduled within 3 months of the original party date). If you cancel your party, you will lose your deposit. If you need to reschedule within 15 days of your party, there will be a non-refundable $100 fee, but your deposit will be transferred to a new date.
Is a deposit required?
A $200 non-refundable deposit is required to reserve your party. The balance is due and payable on the day of your party. We gladly accept VISA, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, Debit Card and Cash. Your deposit will be removed from the final bill. **We require a $500 deposit for teen parties (ages 14+)--the additional $300 of this deposit is refundable if there are no damages to the facility at the end of your party. In the event there are no damages to our facility at the conclusion of your party, this additional deposit amount may be applied to your party's remaining balance.**
Do you have a refrigerator for my cakes or drinks?
We DO offer refrigeration for cakes but may not always have space if your cake requires freezing. Please confirm with the store if you intend to bring an ice cream cake to ensure space is available at the time of your party.

We’ll call you 2-3 days prior to your party to confirm your guest count. At that time, you’ll have an opportunity to order pizza, beverages, goodie bags, balloons, and other party options if you haven’t already. Our team of expert party planners can help you select the appropriate amount of food.
