Pump It Up Frequently Asked Questions

COVID-19 Procedures

When are you reopening?
We are excited to announce that our reopening date is September 10th. Daily updates can occur due to local officials guidance so please check back for future updates.
What are your cleaning procedures?
Diligence in keeping areas sanitary is, as always, of the utmost importance. Team members receive training on the proper cleaning methods and protocols for every area of our facility. Detailed checklists are utilized for all cleaning and our management team enforces that standards are met at all times. Hand sanitizer is available to guests throughout the facility. Floors and surfaces are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected daily. In our party rooms, all tables, and our birthday throne are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected after each event. We have increased allotted cleaning time for sanitization and added additional time and team members dedicated to disinfecting between events using an EPA approved disinfectant for use against SARS-CoV-2.
How do 100% private parties make it safer to celebrate?
As always, our 100% private parties provide you the opportunity to be in control of who attends your event and allows us to clean and sanitize the party space between each event. In addition, we have implemented the use of a sanitizing fogging device between events on inflatables and surfaces. This method offers far better coverage, shorter drying times, and an overall better kill rate for viruses and bacteria within the facility to keep our guests and employees safe.
Do I need to wear a mask?
According to Governor Murphy's Executive Order No. 157, all customers and participants over the age of 2 will be required to wear a face mask. See https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/cloth-face-cover.html for more information and guidance.
Are you conducting any sort of cleaning / disinfecting measure before reopening?
Yes, we are implementing revamped operations that focus on enhanced cleaning procedures and social distancing measures.


Are socks required?
Yes, socks are required to play on the inflatables. NO EXPECTIONS! If you or your guests forget their socks, no worry! We sell socks at our locations for $3.00/pair.
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.
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).
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?
Yes! Gratuities for our staff are always welcome. We suggest an 18% gratuity for the party team working your party. Gratuities are OPTIONAL and graciously accepted.
Are eyeglasses permitted on our inflatables?
For safety purposes, eyeglasses are not permitted on our inflatables. However, prescription sports goggles are permitted.
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.
Is there anything else I should know?
Guests will occasionally pick up a 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.
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), to adhere to all posted safety signs, and to follow directions of the trained staff.
