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.
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 18 years of age must have a waiver completed and signed by a parent/guardian. For your convenience, family members aged 17 years and 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).
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 and enjoy the party!
Are gratuities (tips) appropriate?
Gratuities for our staff are always welcome.
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.
What type of safety instruction is provided?
We pride ourselves on safety. To help prevent injuries, each guest is required to watch the Pump It Up safety video before entering the inflatable arena(s).
What forms of payment are accepted?
For your convenience we accept cash, Visa, MasterCard, American Express & Discover as payment options. Sorry, no checks.
Birthday Party Questions
What time should my guests and I arrive at the party?
We ask that you and your guests arrive 10 minutes minutes prior to your scheduled party to allow time for waiver collection and check in. Your party will begin promptly at the scheduled start time.
Will there be a Pump It Up staff member available to assist me in the party room?
Yes! In addition to taking care of the set up and clean up, our attendants will guide your guests through the party room process: from cutting and serving your cake, pouring/refreshing drinks and serving pizza, to taking the gift list, and taking photographs. Our party attendants do it all -so you don't have to!
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! There is an $12 charge per additional guest over the number included in your party package. If you have the Glow package, the charge is $13 per additional guest. We do not count children under the age of 2, or adults toward your total. If you are inviting more than thirty children, please let us know at least 10 days prior to your party.
What food items can be brought into the facility?
You may bring cake, cupcakes, and prepackaged dry snacks or candy. We’re sorry, but no other outside food is permitted. If you purchase our pizza, or a package that includes pizza, it comes with drinks. If not, you may purchase drinks separately. We do not allow outside drinks to be brought in.
What if I need to reschedule my party?
To avoid additional charges, we require at least 14 days advance notice to cancel or reschedule your party. Your party must be rescheduled within 3 months of the original party date. If you cancel/reschedule within 14 days of your party, you will be responsible for 50% of the total party price. If you cancel/reschedule within 7 days of your party date, you will be responsible for 100% of the total party price. Remember that your deposit is non-refundable (sorry-no exceptions).
Is a deposit required?
A $100 non-refundable deposit is required to reserve your party with a credit card. If you come in and make a cash deposit, we require 50% of the price of the party. The deposit is transferable: as long as you call at least two weeks prior to your party, you can reschedule to any day or time within three months of the original party date. The balance is due and payable on the day of your party.
Do I need to stay at the party?
The party host is required to stay at the party. Other adults are also welcome to stay and enjoy the fun!
Can I use my own decorations and/or paper products in the party room?
You’re welcome to use your own decorations and/or paper products in the party room. To preserve the integrity of our party rooms, we do not permit wall or ceiling decorations, silly string, or confetti. We offer a festive Happy Birthday pull-string piñata, filled with two pounds of a mix of candy. We do not allow outside piñatas.
Are there any additional items I need to bring to the party?
If you will be bringing a cake, please bring a serving knife, candles, and a lighter (no matches please). For your convenience, we also have candles, cameras, and socks available for purchase.
Can we start in the party room?
No, we’ve found that full tummies and bouncing don’t mix, our parties begin in the inflatable arena(s).
Once in the party room, can guests re-enter the play arena(s)?
We’re sorry, but guests may not re-enter the inflatable arena(s).
Can I spend more than the designated play time in the inflatable arena?
We’re sorry, but we cannot extend your play time in the inflatable arena(s).
Is my party private or will my guests share the inflatables and party rooms with guests from other parties?
For the safety and security of your guests, your party is completely private 100% of the time. There will not be any other people from any other parties in the arenas or party rooms while you are there. This allows our staff to focus solely on your group and to make the occasion special for your child.
Can I have alcohol for the adults?
No alcohol is allowed in our facility.
Can I have a craft activity during the party?
Because of the potential damage to our facility, we do not allow any craft projects involving pens, markers, glue or glitter.
I booked a Glow Party - Is there anything special I need to tell my guests?
You might suggest that they wear white, neon or glow-in-the-dark clothing so they’ll really glow under the black lights!
