Pump It Up Frequently Asked Questions

COVID-19 Procedures

When are you reopening?
We are excited to announce that our reopening date is September 1st. 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.
What other measures are you taking to follow social distancing protocols?
We have implemented numerous measures to limit contact, including contactless payment options, digital kiosks, reduced cross-traffic between 100% private parties, and introduced individually packaged food items.
Do I need to wear a mask?
According to NJ Governor Murphy, masks are required to be worn at all times when inside the building. The CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies) especially in areas of significant community-based transmission. See 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. When you visit our location you may see the following: cleaning all surfaces, disinfecting food preparation areas, spraying down all inflatable rides in between use.


Are socks required?
Yes, socks are required to play on the inflatables.
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.
