Pump It Up Frequently Asked Questions


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 inspected by the state each year to guarantee they are safe for use. They are also anchored to the floor, wall, and/or ceiling to provide extra stability. High touch areas are cleaned frequently and a deep clean is done every night.
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 from infants to grandparents. All guests under 18 years of age must have an electronic waiver completed by an adult. For your convenience, family members aged 17 years or younger may be included on the same waiver. Waivers are available online and should be completed before arriving.
Are there any age/height restrictions?
Yes. For safety purposes, each inflatable lists the minimum height required to play. Five of our inflatables have a minimum height requirement of 34 inches. We have one inflatable with a minimum height requirement of 24 inches allowing younger guests to play.
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! The host is responsible for any children whose parents do not stay for the party.

Can adults play on the inflatables?
For safety reasons we do not recommend adults play on the inflatables. Parents may help their child if needed but must adhere to the maximum number of allowed guests on each inflatable.
Is there an additional charge for parents, siblings, and/or care-givers?
Adults and guests under the age of 18 months attending a party are FREE. However, siblings or any additional guests age 18 months to 17 years are included in the party guest count. For Open Jump sessions there is a 2 adult maximum per paying child/family. All additional adults must pay admission.

You are welcome to come in to play during our scheduled "Open Jump" times. Please see our Open Jump page for more information or our Events Calendar for scheduled Open Jump times.

Birthday Party

What time should my guests and I arrive at the party?
We ask that you arrive 20-25 minutes early and your guests arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled party to allow time for check in and the Pump It Up safety video viewing. We start parties on time and cannot make up for any missed play time if you or your guests are late. If you have not arrived by the party start time your pizza order will be cancelled. Once cancelled it cannot be reordered.
Will there be a Pump It Up staff member available to assist me in the party room?
Yes - Our staff will take care of setting up the party room for you while you enjoy the party. You will also have a Party Pro to assist you in the party room.
Is a deposit required?
A $100 non-refundable deposit is required to reserve your party. The balance is due and payable on the day of your party.
What if I need to reschedule my party?
To avoid additional charges, we require at least 15 day advance notice if you need to cancel or reschedule your party. Your party must be rescheduled within 1 month of the original party date. If you cancel or reschedule your party within 8 to 14 days there is a $25 additional charge. If you cancel or reschedule within 7 days of your party there is a $100 additional charge. Remember that your deposit is non-refundable (sorry-no exceptions).
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.
What food items can be brought into the facility?
You may bring cake, cupcakes and/or cookies (either homemade or store bought). No other outside food or drinks will be permitted. We do offer individual snack bags (such as chips & pretzels), applesauce pouches, cans of Coke, Diet Coke, Pepsi, Diet Pepsi and Seven Up, UDF ice cream cups and Papa John's pizza which can be added to your party.
Do you provide party room set up and clean up?
Absolutely! We will set up the party room just the way you want it and clean up afterwards.
Can I use my own decorations and/or paper products in the party room?
You may bring in your own paper products, tablecloths, banner, center pieces, backdrop, and inflated balloon(s) on strings. Our staff will set up the party room for you. We do not allow balloon arches or backdrops, streamers, silly string or confetti. An additional clean up charge of $25 will be added if silly string or confetti is used. You can bring your own goodie bags but pinata's must be purchased through us.
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 additional charge per additional guest over the number included in your party package. A drink is provided but not additional pizza for extra kids. We do have a maximum limit of 35 kids per party. If you want to have more than 35 kids contact us for times and pricing for larger groups.
How much time will we have in each area of the facility?
For a 2 hour party, you and your guests will have 35 minutes in each arena and the last 50 minutes is in the party room.
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 are 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.
When should I order food for our party? Goodie bags? Balloons? And other party options?
We’ll call you prior to your party to confirm your guest count. At that time, you’ll have an opportunity to order pizza, beverages, goodie bags, balloons, and other party options if you haven’t already. You may bring your own goodie bags, balloons, paper products and decorations. Any pinatas and Goodie Gushers must be purchased through us.
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 in the arenas, only the party room.
At which age is a child considered a jumper for my party?
Children ages 18 months through 17 years old, including the guest of honor, are counted toward the guest count.
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, there will not be a fee to reschedule, and 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.
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).
If I have booked a party package for 25 kids, can I change it to a smaller package?
