Important Notice

We will only set up an inflatable in compliance with HSE UK standard BSEN14960.

If you have ANY other surface besides real grass and soil, you must contact us before booking. This includes artificial grass which is most likely not suitable for inflatable hire.
Secure back garden or venue grounds hire only, we will not set up on communal areas, public car parks, streets or any other council or public land without written permission. Please see our for full information regarding inflatable hire. Please note: We DO NOT supply generators. Our electrical blowers are connected to mains power supplied from homes and venues. We have extension cables for gardens which are a short distance from the building. However we cannot trail cables across roads or public pathways.

Wind speeds.

On the day of your booking, you will receive a wind speed monitor (Anemometre) Your operator will show you how to use it to ensure maximum safety measures. In the event of gusts reaching 24mph, the inflatable must be vacated immediately and the castle switched off until the wind drops. It is illegal for an inflatable to be hired out in wind speeds or gusts at 24 mph or higher. We closely monitor the weather daily and will always inform our customers at the earliest point if the day of hire is predicted unsafe, in which case we will do our best to accommodate a rescheduled booking. This includes predicted gusts which can happen at any point of the day, even if the general weather is just breezy.


We will only anchor an inflatable outdoor on suitable surfaces using steel pegs for grass or drill and bolts for hard standing. If you have a hard standing surface you MUST contact us upon booking so we can advise on whether it is suitable. We do not use sandbags outdoors. Please see our terms for further information.


All of our equipment is professionally cleaned and sanitized before and after each hire. We take pride in our hygiene standard. We deep clean all of our equipment using concentrate professional grade sterilizing fluid, covering every square inch, rinsing and then applying an air drying, skin kind sanitizer. Upon set up, a second spritz of sanitizer will be applied.

Frequently asked questions

Q. How is the bouncy castle inflated?

A. All bouncy castles are fitted with a fan which blows air constantly through the inflatable. The fan must be left switched on at all times. The bouncy castle will not over inflate. When the fan is turned off, the bouncy castle will deflate instantly. The blower should only be switched off when a member of our team collects.

Q. Do you supply power?

A. We do not hire generators. Bouncy castles require a mains power socket at 240V. Please check with your venue that adequate power is available to inflate the castle.

Q. If I book less time, will it be cheaper?

A. Sadly no, we charge a standard day rate which the inflatable can be delivered anytime between 9am and 6pm.

Q. Can I hire a bouncy castle overnight?

A. Yes absolutely, you will need a secure garden or venue premises for overnight hire. To book overnight you can select the option online or add a note in your booking form.

Q. I have artificial grass, can I book?

A. We need firm soil underneath to anchor the inflatable safely. If this is not possible then we can only suggest an alternative service or product. Please note: sand or gravel is unsuitable for anchoring inflatables.

Q. Can you use sandbags?

A. An outdoor inflatable would require 163kg per anchor point, this means approximately 72 sandbags! We do not use sandbags outdoors for this reason, it is unsafe and impractical.

Q. Will rain affect my hire?

A. No. The rain will not stop us delivering a bouncy castle unless the weather is unsafe ie: thunderstorms and winds reaching 24mph. When the inflatable is used correctly, the castle is safe to use in the rain. Please ensure you follow the operators instructions upon set up.

Q. Can adults use the castle?

A. We have lots of bouncy castles suitable for adults, Explore our full range for further details.
