Safety and Operation Instructions

  1. Ensure the bouncy castle is installed on a flat level surface on the tarpaulin provided at least 2m away from any building, fences, trees, obstructions etc. The bouncy castle can be installed on a concrete driveway but not a hard stony surface.

  2. Please anchor the bouncy castle using the four ground pegs provided to stop wind gusts moving the bouncy castle.

  3. The bouncy castle shall be no further than 15m away from the power supply and the RCD provided must be used at all times.

  4. The Party Castle has an age limit of 7 years. The remaining castles have an age limit of 12 years. Please ensure no one over these ages uses the equipment. No adults are to use the bouncy castles.

  5. No food, drinks or chewing gum to be allowed on or near the bouncy castles which will avoid choking and mess. Please note if the inflatable is collected in a dirty condition then the person hiring it will incur a cleaning charge.

  6. All shoes, glasses, jewellery, badges MUST be removed before using the bouncy castle.

  7. No face paints, party poppers, coloured streamers or silly string to be used either on or near the bouncy castles.

  8. No smoking or barbeques near the bouncy castle.

  9. Climbing, hanging or sitting on walls is DANGEROUS and must not be allowed.

  10. A responsible adult must supervise the bouncy castle at all times.

  11. Always ensure that the bouncy castle is not overcrowded. Limit numbers according to the age and size of children using it. Try to avoid large and small children from using it at the same time.

  12. Please make sure children are not pushing, colliding, fighting or behaving in a manner likely to injure or cause distress to others.

  13. If the bouncy castle is not being used for any part of the day, please switch the blower off at the power supply.

  14. Do not allow anyone to bounce on the front safety step as a child could easily bounce off the inflatable and get hurt. The step is there to assist users in getting on or off!

  15. Ensure that no-one with a history of back or neck problems is allowed on the bouncy castle as well as any child who is feeling unwell.

  16. Do not allow anyone to be on the bouncy castle during inflation or deflation as this is DANGEROUS.

  17. No pets, toys or sharp instruments to be allowed on or near the bouncy castle.

  18. Please ensure that children are not attempting somersaults and are clothed appropriately and that nothing can fall out of their pockets.

  19. Ensure that an area of 2m around the unit is completely clear.

  20. The bouncy castle should not be used if it becomes wet on the jumping area. If no shower cover is fitted and in the event of rain, the unit should not be used.

  21. In the event of heavy rain, it is strongly recommended that the bouncy castle be switched off. Any wetness, including bubbling (which is normal) can be dried with a towel.

  22. In the event that the blower stops working, please ensure all users get off the inflatable immediately. Check to make sure that all the leads are plugged in correctly and that the RCD has not tripped. If the RCD has tripped try resetting it. If it trips again, notify us immediately. Also, check the fuses and make sure the blower tube or deflation tube has not come undone or that something has blown onto it (obstructing the blower). In the event that it overheats, or loses power, switch the blower off at the mains then switch it back on again 1 or 2 minutes later - it should restart. If it does not, inform us straight away.
