General Pump It Up FAQ
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 for both children AND adults. We do sell socks just in case you forget.
Is each guest, including adults, required to have a completed/signed waiver?
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 big inflatables including slides, jumpers etc. We also have many games for younger kids including toddlers.
Will Pump It Up provide supervision in the play areas?
Our fun and friendly staff will provide supervision in the inflatable play areas so you can relax. However, adult supervision is still required for all events and parties.
Are gratuities (tips) appropriate?
Gratuities for our staff are always welcome.
Is there anything else I should know?
Guests will occasionally pick up a very minor friction burn when going down the slides. Giving yourself a big hug before sliding down is typically sufficient, but if you’re concerned then we recommend wearing clothing that covers knees and elbows. In Arena A, it's also recommended that you use our slide mats and slide down the center of the slide to avoid such burns.
What forms of payment are accepted?
For your convenience, we accept cash, Visa & MasterCard, Discover, American Express as payment options. Sorry, no checks.
What type of safety instruction is provided?
We pride ourselves on safety. To help prevent injuries, each party guest is required to watch the Pump It Up safety video before entering the inflatable arena(s).
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. While we welcome them to attend the party and will not charge for their attendance, they will be prohibited from playing on the inflatables.
Can adults play on the inflatables?
Yes, as long as they are within the manufacturers guidelines for height and weight.
