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 your head count. You can place your order for food, cake, and other add-ons at that time.
Is a deposit required?
A $100 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 non-refundable.
Who do you count as party participants?
For children’s parties, anyone who is 1 - 17 years old is counted as a party participant. Parents are FREE to join the fun!
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 bring in my own food and drinks?
You are welcome to bring your own cake or cupcakes. If you would like to serve a meal, however, we ask that you use our menu. We have relationships with local restaurants to cater food, so your order will be delivered hot to your party room! No other outside food or drink is permitted including any other type of desert such as cookies and/or ice cream.
If I am bringing in my own cake, do I need to bring in my own plates and napkins?
No. All paper and plastic products are included in your party package, and we are more than happy to supply them. If you would like the paper and plastic items to fit a specific theme, you are welcome to bring your own.
Can I bring my own goodie bags and/or balloons?
Yes, you are welcome to bring your own goodie bags and balloons. We do recommend that you to check out our party favor options. We offer a variety of fun and cool party favors at a reasonable price!
Can I order extra pizza or other food once my party has begun?

What is your inclement weather policy?
In the event of inclement weather, or act of God, and the facility closes, we will reschedule your party anytime within two months from the original party date at no charge. If you choose not to reschedule, it will be considered a cancellation and subject to the 100% cancellation fee.

Can I use my own decorations and/or paper products in the party room?
You are welcome to use your own decorations and/or paper products in the party room. To preserve the integrity of our party rooms, we do not permit wall or ceiling decorations, streamers, silly string or confetti. Pull string Pinatas are the ONLY Pinatas that are permitted.
How do I get invitations for my party?
After you book your party, you can pick up your FREE invitation cards, along with other party information, at BounceU. Please call first before you come, as our hours of operation vary. If you would like your invitations to be mailed to you, the mailing fee is $ 5.00. In addition to invitation cards, access to BounceU’s online e-vite system with RSVP features is available free of charge.
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.

Gratuities for our staff are always welcome.
