8.  SETUP:

  •  Due to our tight delivery schedule, we only set the jumping castle up. You will be responsible for the setup of everything else such as tables, chairs and decor if hired with a jumping castle.

9.  WALLS, STAIRS AND PARTY AREAS:

  • Due to health and safety reasons, no inflatable will be pushed up and over any walls and stairs.
  • Please make sure you read the important details as stated on our website regarding the access gates, etc.
  • Our guys have 15 minutes per house.  If they can’t get the castle to the area you want due to hirer/customer not being at the given address at the agreed time, or narrow passageways, stairs and walls; we have instructed them to go to the next house and not leave the castle at the premises. No refunds will be made in such a case and the hirer/customer agrees to pay the full amount invoiced as we (Rumble Grumble Parties) did complete our side of the contract and delivered the goods. We cannot be held responsible if you did not check the size of your own property or the area you wanted the castle to go to or you are not at the premises at the agreed time. Please understand that we have other customers who we need to think of as well.
  • No inflatable is allowed to be inflated on a public road. It is a safety hazard. All roads need to be clear for emergency vehicles, etc. We can, however, put them in parks, etc provided that you as the customer/hirer made the necessary arrangements with the council.

10.  ELECTRICITY:

  • Power points are the responsibility of the hirer.
  • Please note that each inflatable needs its own plug point. Otherwise, you will continuously have power tripping.
  • Please note that we prefer you do not use generators on any of our blowers as generators do not provide a steady flow of electricity, thus making them work much harder than what they are supposed to.  This cause blower to burn out.  We understand that due to load shedding; generators are the only solution, thus you agree to replace a blower within 7 days if it burns out while you were using it on a generator.

11.  AREA REQUIRED FOR INFLATABLES:

  • Inflatable units require a relatively open & flat area away from trees and walls.
  • Inflatables are to be erected on grass surfaces free of stones, glass and any sharp objects. Please ensure you have checked the area for these as they can cause damage to the jumping castles. You as hirer will be held responsible for any damage.
  • We prefer to setup on grass, but we can also set the castles up on brick and concrete surfaces provided there is secured pole or fence to tie down ropes.
  • Do not setup nearby fire, braai’s, and no smoking is allowed on or near the inflatable unit.
  • Pets:  Keep all pets away from all our equipment. Also, ensure that the area where the castle will go is clean and there are no doggy surprises on the grass or party area BEFORE we arrive.
  • Please note that our driver needs unobstructed access in order to set the castle up. We will not be held responsible if our drivers cannot get the jumping castle to the designated area.  It is the customer’s responsibility to make sure there is unobstructed access and if in doubt please give us a call before booking the Castle. You are welcome to send us a picture of the questioned areas. Please check dimensions before you book a castle as some castles need certain door/passage widths to be able to go to the party area. No stairs.

12.  WEATHER:

  • Keep Blower Fans DRY at ALL TIMES.
  • No water shall be allowed on any inflatable unit (Except on specified water slides).
  • Do not use the Jumping Castle during rain. The jumping surface is very slippery when wet and can cause serious injury when a child slip. Switch castle off and fold castle in half so that the one side covers the other side.  This will keep water our of the castle.  If the castle is wet when you switch it on again after the rain, please dry surface with old towels.
  • If during operation the wind becomes excessive (25kph), remove all bouncers and deflate the Jumping Castle. Please make sure the jumping castle is in a secured place and can’t blow away.  If stakes or rope come undone, please secure them immediately.

  4. Do not overload any inflatable. Weight per inflatable is 100kg.  That is between 5 – 8 children depending on the weight and size of the children. The maximum rider capacity should never be exceeded.
  5. All Inflatables are physically challenging. Any person with health impairment, disease, high blood pressure, back, neck or other bone/joint problems, pregnant woman or any other conditions that might cause problems when physically challenged should not be allowed in any of our inflatables.
  6. Make everyone aware of all stakes/anchors, sandbags and rope holding the inflatable in place.

  8. All participants should empty their pockets before entering the inflatable.

  • A responsible adult should walk around the castle and check that all ropes, pegs, etc are still secure before letting the children on. This should also be done now and then during operation to make sure no ropes have come undone.
  • If the motor has stopped – check the cord connection at the outlet and at the motor.  Check the circuit breaker.  Remember that multiple devices on the same plug circuit can overload the circuit breaker.  Try switching to a different plug circuit and/or switch other devices off. Also check that that you do not have a faulty extension lead.
  • Check the air intake on the side of the motor for blockage. Check all air tubes that connect to the blower on the back/side of the inflatable for snugness and retie if necessary.
  • When the inflatable goes back up check that all stakes and rope is still secure and keeping the inflatable in place.  If inflatable stakes come loose, pull the loop of the inflatable towards you and re-stake. If rope is loose, retie.  Remember, it’s your child on the inflatable. Secure the inflatable as best as you can.
  • Should the inflatable not inflate or if you experience any other problems with the equipment, please call Rumble Grumble Parties representative at the following phone number 074 903 8468 or 021 788 4996 before allowing or engaging in further use of the inflatable/equipment.
