What if I need to reschedule my party?

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 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).
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, we will escort your guest to your party.
How many guests can I invite?
Please refer to the Birthday Party section of the website for the designated guest count. All of our parties include 25 children. The birthday child(ren) is included in the count. Any child after 25, is an additional charge of $10 per child. We cannot accommodate over 35 children. All children under the age of 18 years count as part of the head count minus infants.
Can I bring my own goodie bags and/or balloons?
If you are not purchasing our popular Pump It Up goodie bags you are welcome to bring your own. You may also bring in your own balloons. They must be pre-inflated before your arrival. We also do not allow any balloon banners that are excessively long and big since we have limited space to store them.
What assistance do you provide in the party room?
Lots! First, we thoroughly prepare the room so that it’s all clean, tidy, and organized for your group. Then, we setup the party room with any items you might have brought such as your cake and decorations. Coordinators also serve pizza, fill cups and cut the cake for all of the kids. Lastly, we break down and clean once you leave.
Are there any additional items I need to bring to the party?
Please bring a cake or cupcakes, candles, a knife/server and a lighter. Also, its always a good idea to bring a couple extra pairs of socks in case some of your party goers forget.
Will the party room be available for us during our arena play time?
Typically not, because there will usually be another party in the party room. However, feel free to check at the front desk to see if it is available. There is no guarantee that you will have access to your room until 15 minutes prior to moving in there. Please keep this in mind while choosing decorations, if they are excessive, there might not be enough time to put them all up.
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). We also do not have the means to extend your jump time since we run on the rotation system.
Can I hire a character, clown, face painter or balloon artist to come to my party?
You may hire a character, clown or balloons artist to attend your party as long as they don't do anything messy with paint, silly string, confetti, etc. We do not permit face painters. Also, the performer must not cause parties to run late. We are strict on the amount of time in each room because we run on a rotation system.
