Which equipment will fit in my garden?
We need a main grassed area (or suitable flat, smooth tarmac or paved area) with sufficient space around it free from obstacles, i.e. trees and shrubs, fences, steps, walls, etc. The obstacles must not be too close as they may cause damage or be a danger for those using the equipment. We supply a range of bouncy castles/inflatable units, that are suitable for most gardens as well as indoor hire, for example: Typically a 16’x16’ castle is used for children up to the age of 14 years old, with a border of at least 2ft wide all around the castle, so ideally a space of 18’x19’ would be required in this instance.
Can I have the castle indoors?
Yes, most of our castles are suitable for indoor hire, i.e., Community centres, Church Halls, Leisure Centers, etc. and generally depending on lighting/ceiling mounted fans etc. Check out the venues that we use.

What sort of surface do you need for the castle?
Castles situated outdoors need to be on a reasonably flat grassy area so that they can be staked down. The area needs to be completely free of any sharp stones, objects, dog mess etc. Please let us know if the ground is hard standing such as a patio area or concrete so we can take extra measures as not to damage the unit and provide the correct anchorage to secure the unit where pegs cannot be used.
If you are unsure we can visit the site to assess its suitability.
How is the inflatable secured to the ground?
Pegs are usually used to secure the inflatable - however if on a hard surface such as concrete then we need to bolt the inflatable to the ground with thunderbolts, holes will be filled in on collection, If in doubt about the set up area then please contact us.
What about indoors?
All of our units are suitable for indoor hire (height depending) It is the Customers responsibility to check room heights before booking.
In order to secure the unit, in this case we use sandbags to keep the inflatable in a safe stable manner. Indoors have priority when it comes to delivery and collection times. This is due to strict time keeping policies that tends to come with hall hire. Request a list of Venue that we have used our inflatables in.or contact us 01543 422967

We also reserve the right to cancel in the instance of extreme weather conditions as safety is considered paramount by us - such as relentless rain or high winds.
What happens if it rains during a hire?
All of our units are operated with Water Proof IP rated leads to the fans, and also have weatherproof connectors for external use (the plug to the mains must be indoors). Most of our castles come with shower covers, but it is recommended that you stop use if the rain becomes heavy, as the castle can become slippery when wet. This can be dried with a towel if the rain seems to have eased up.
How does the inflatable operate?
All of our units run on electric fans. The blowers must be kept switched on at all times the castle is on hire. Failure to do this will result in the castle deflating. Do not let children go by the fan or turn off the power.

On average electric costs about £0.12p - £0.20 for every 1 hours. Depending on your tariff.
Can I keep the castle overnight?
Yes on selected inflatables, but there is an extra charge from £30.
How many children are allowed on the inflatable at a time?
It all depends on the age and size of the children and what they are doing. As a general rule there should be enough space for each child to jump safely with enough room as not to bounce into others or fall off the inflatable itself. A responsible adult should always supervise and common sense must prevail.
Can you provide supervision for the duration of hire?
Yes, for an extra charge, we can provide a supervisor to manage the inflatable for the hire term, check in staff for prices or contact us for details.Event Staff
