BounceU Frequently Asked Questions

General

Is there an age limit?
Generally, BounceU is suitable for ages two to adult. Sturdy walkers under two years old may, when accompanied by a parent or guardian, play on our inflatables. Please note, however, that the inflatables are very large, and manufacturer's safety standards require minimum heights for users, Children who do not meet those required heights may not participate. Non-walkers, infants and toddlers who cannot walk independently can NOT use the equipment.
Can we just come in and play?
Yes! You are welcome to come in to play during our scheduled "Open Bounce" times. Please see our Open Bounce page for more information, or our Events Calendar for scheduled Open Bounce times.
I forgot my socks! What can I do?
Every guest who will be on ANY of our inflatable rides or games MUST wear socks. NO exceptions. For your convenience, we offer very cool and affordable BounceU socks for sale at the front desk.
Are there any age/height restrictions?
Yes. For safety purposes, children under 34 inches are NOT permitted in or on the equipment for any reason (even if accompanied by an adult).
Do you offer Military Discount?
We proudly support all active military. Show your active military ID at check-in and receive 10% off everything we sell. EVERYthing. Thanks for your service to America!
Inclement weather policy.
On rare occasions, we are forced to close for the safety of our customers and staff. If a major snowstorm or other event that might interrupt our private and/or public event schedule, we'll notify our customers via or Facebook page and/or direct contact with party and group event hosts.
What options are available in the party room?
Please see our extensive menu of party food, drinks and favors. Both of our private party rooms have large tables and benches for guests to sit comfortably, and a separate table and counter for party food, drinks and gifts. Customers may bring their own balloons, goodie bags, and decorations. Customers are permitted to hang wall decorations using ONLY painter's tape. We do not permit ceiling decorations, streamers, silly string, confetti, or any other decor or party favor that could damage property or make our guests uncomfortable. We stream continuous music in our private party rooms, with the volume adjusted at your discretion.
Can a guest play while wearing a cast?
In the interest of safety, any guest wearing a cast or other motion-limiting device (splint, sling or brace) will not be permitted to participate on the inflatables. While we welcome guests wearing such devices to attend your party, and will not charge for their attendance, they will be prohibited from playing on the inflatables.
How long are you closed for?
We were forced to close on March 16,2020, along with all other entertainment centers, until the governor of Pennsylvania declared Lehigh and surrounding counties "Green Zones." We spent a full month leading up to our reopening preparing a "whole new BounceU" for our guests. New inflatables, new decor, new processes, new EVERYthing EXCEPT for the famous BounceU personal service and 100% private, we-do-the-work, you-have-the-fun birthday parties!
What forms of payment are accepted?
We accept VISA, Mastercard, Discover and cash. We do NOT accept checks of any kind.

Birthday Party

Do I have to know my head count and other options when I reserve my party?
No. We will call you approximately one week prior to your scheduled party date to confirm the number of guests you're expecting. We'll be happy to work with you at that time to customize your party with the right food, drinks, add-on experiences and party favors. Don't worry: Your budget is OUR budget, and we're here to make your celebration stress-free from start to finish.
Is a deposit required?
A $75 deposit is required to reserve your party. You may pay over the phone with a credit or debit card. The deposit is applied to the party price and is fully refundable if cancelled at least 21 days before the event date. There are no exceptions to this refund policy, regardless of the time elapsed between the date you booked your event and the event date.
How do I schedule a BounceU party?
In the way that's most convenient for you! You can reserve your event online on this website, or if you prefer to speak to or email one of expert and friendly staff, you can email or call us. Let us know your preferred date(s) and time(s) if you have them and we'll respond to your email or voicemail message within 24 hours--and usually on the same day. Email us at allentown.pa@bounceu.com or call us at 610-841-7008.
You say that the party includes a certain number of guests. What if some parents want to stay and watch? Do they count as party guests?
No. Adults may stay during the party and watch the children play on the inflatables, or just relax at BounceU and socialize with other parents. They may also participate, as long as they first sign our standard Release and Waiver and are issued a wristband or a hand stamp.
Can I have the bounce room for a longer amount of time?
Our parties provide a very full and fun experience in the time allowed and are precisely scheduled throughout each day. Unless your event is the last event of the day it’s impossible for us to extend its length. But don’t worry— you’ll have plenty of time! NOTE: on average, opening gifts consumes about 1 minute/gift. Please consider that time requirement and when you arrive for your party, let your party pro(s) know your preference and they'll manage the party's time to your advantage.
Who do you count as party participants?
For children’s parties, anyone who is a stable walker - 17 years old is counted as a party participant. Parents are FREE to join the fun!
Can I bring in my own food and drinks?
You can supply ONLY your own cake or cupcakes but ALL other food and beverages must be ordered through us. Please know we insist on this policy to ensure the high quality of every party and comply with the Pennsylvania Department of Health’s regulations for food safety. On rare occasions, and only for concerns about food allergies or religious restrictions, we will allow a modest amount of food and/or beverages to be provided by our party customers. To be considered for this accommodation, you must submit your request to us via email at least two weeks in advance of your party date, and clearly describe the reason(s) for your request and the items you wish to supply. We will notify you via return email if your request is approved. If approved, we will charge a minimum $50 service fee.
Can I order extra pizza or other food once my party has begun?
We order cakes, pizza, vegetable, fruit and breakfast pastry trays, sandwich platters and other menu items 4 days prior to your party. If you anticipate that the number of guests will be greater than you originally thought when your party details were confirmed, please telephone or email us as soon as possible and we’ll do our best to accommodate you.
If I am bringing in my own cake, do I need to bring in my own plates and napkins?
Yes, unless you are ordering other food items from us.
Can I use my own decorations and/or paper products in the party room?
Feel free to bring your own themed décor, but please note that to protect the appearance of our facilities, no tapes or adhesives other than painter's paper tape are permitted nor can any decorations be hung from our ceilings. We’ll be happy to set up any themed plates, napkins and cups that you supply. PLEASE package your items, including cakes, in sturdy boxes or bags CLEARLY marked with the name of guest of honor, party date and time. This will help ensure your items arrive in your party room at the appropriate time.
What if I need to reschedule my party?
PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY: Party deposits are refundable up to 21 days before event. They are non-refundable if party is booked within the 3 week period IMPORTANT: If you cancel your party within 72 hours of scheduled date and time, or do not honor your party reservation (e.g, you don't appear for your scheduled event), your credit card will be charged for the full base price amount of your scheduled party AND for any food or party add-ons that you ordered. Please understand that BounceU parties are very popular, are booked well in advance and are customized to each customer's specifications, which is why we strictly enforce this policy. Much like a plane ticket, we have no way of recouping the revenue lost when a customer cancels as described above.
I don't want to serve a full meal. Can I bring in my own snacks?
We have snack food options available; see our Party Add-Ons page for more information. Please do not bring in any food other than cake or cupcakes.
What happens if my guests or I arrive late? Can I get a time extension?
Unfortunately we cannot extend your party time when you or your guests arrive late. We host back-to-back parties every day, and staying on-schedule is critical to our guest satisfaction and operations. We recommend you ask your guests to arrive 15 minutes before the party start time for check in.
Is each guest, including adults, required to have a completed/signed waiver?
For insurance purposes, all guests who enter our bounce stadiums must have a completed/signed waiver on file. Waivers for children under 18 must be completed and signed by a parent/guardian. For your convenience, we also include our waiver in our birthday invitation, and additional waivers are available at the front desk. If you complete an Online Waiver through our website, it will be kept on file for one year.
