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 facility 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.

Then, we setup the party room with any items you might have brought such as your cake and table deco (items requiring assembly must be done prior to your arrival).

What if I am late for my scheduled party time? What if my Guests are late?
We understand that circumstances happen, however, our parties start promptly at the scheduled time. Since there may be other parties scheduled after your party time, we may be unable to extend your party time. If your party begins after your scheduled time due to waiting for late guests, you will have less time in the arenas and, possibly, the party room. If your guests arrive late and you have already started your party, after they've checked in they will be given direction to join your party.
What if there is inclement weather the day of our party?
In the event of inclement weather, we will work with you to agree on a sensible approach taking into account the current weather conditions. If we agree to reschedule the event, we will work with you to find a new date that's within three (3) months of the original date and the new reservation must be made within one (1) week of the original party date. At the time we agree to reschedule the event, the customer is responsible for 100% of the party price.
Is my party private or will my guests share the inflatables and party rooms with guests from other parties?
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.
What if less/more kids show up on the day of the party after I have placed my pizza, balloons or goodie bag order?
Unfortunately, pizza orders are placed the night before and cannot be changed on the day of your party. For goodie bags you can take any extras home with you. You may purchase additional balloons or goodie bags on the day of the party.
How many guests can I invite?
Please refer to the Birthday Party section of the website for the designated guest count. There is a $10 ($16 for Ultimates) charge per additional guest over the number included in your party package. Please consider adjusting your food and beverage purchases to accommodate your additional guests. If you are inviting more than 30 guests, please let us know at least 10 days prior to your party.
