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 fully refundable if cancelled at least 14 days before the event date. After 14 days, the deposit is non-refundable.
Who do you count as party participants?
If a child bounces on our inflatables, they must be paid for. Non walking infants are free. If a sibling is brought to a party to bounce, either the Party Host or the siblings' Parent are responsible for for paying for that child. If they bounce, they are considered a bouncer and part of the party. Also, there will be a charge for any additional Party Favors given to siblings. If a Party Pro sees a child bouncing without a wristband, they will ask that child to climb off the inflatables.
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.We host Private Parties, which means a much more controlled environment for you. Because it is more controlled, parents are allowed to bounce. We occasionally ask parents to step aside for safety reasons, during large parties.
Can I bring in my own food and drinks?
NO OUTSIDE FOOD OR DRINKS ARE ALLOWED EXCEPT FOR CAKE OR CUPCAKES. We offer cakes at competitive prices, and can save you the hassle of ordering and picking one up yourself. If you would like to serve a meal, we require that you use our menu. We have relationships with local restaurants to cater food. We reserve the right to charge a minimum $75 food charge, refuse any and all outside food and drinks, and/or refuse service to you if any outside food or drink is brought in.
Can I have the bounce room for a longer amount of time?
Generally, this is plenty of bounce time. It’s like putting the kids on a treadmill for an hour without stopping.However, you can pay for extra time if you would like. An extra hour can be added for $150 on Weekends and $100 on Weekdays, in addition to the regular party price for all parties. We do NOT sell extra time in 30 minutes blocks. Also, we cannot guarantee this extra space/time will be available. Extra time must be paid for in advance in addition to your deposit, and is nonrefundable.
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?
If you are not purchasing one of our popular and inexpensive BounceU party favors you are welcome to bring your own. We offer many options at party store prices so you don’t have to make the stop yourself!!
Can I order extra pizza or other food once my party has begun?
Pizza can be ordered up until the start of your party. After the start of your party, we can’t guarantee it to arrive exactly when you enter the party room. We recommend you order food products the day before your party so that all meals are prepared to order with fresh ingredients. Cakes need 48 hours notice. We do not maintain extra food products on the BounceU premises.
What if I need to reschedule my party?
Parties may be rescheduled up to 14 days before your party. After 14 days a $50 rescheduling fee applies. Changing the date or time of your party will be considered as rescheduling.
I don't want to serve a full meal. Can I bring in my own snacks?
No outside food or drinks are permitted during parties except for cake. We have many snack food options you can select, including a veggie tray, fruit tray, cookies, and large party bowl of snacks. Please see Party Add-Ons page for more information. Please do not bring in food other than your party cake. We reserve the right to charge you an additional fee if non-permitted/outside food is brought to your party.
Can I use my own decorations and/or paper products in the party room?
The simple answer is: “Yes.” However, we reserve the right to say “No” depending on the decoration. To preserve the integrity of our party rooms, we do not permit wall or ceiling decorations, streamers, silly string, confetti, or many piñatas. If these items are used, you may be subject to a clean-up fee up to $25. Piñatas with pull strings are acceptable, but must be held up by an adult and cannot be affixed to the wall or ceiling.
How do I get invitations for my party?
After you book your party, you can pick up your paper Invitation, along with other party information, at BounceU. Please call first before you come, as our hours of operation vary. 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. Children will not be permitted to Bounce without payment and a signed waiver. If you complete an Online Waiver through our website, it will be kept on file for one year.
I've already booked my party. Can I change it to a different party package?
You can change the size of your party up to 24 hours before your party. Since we are not responsible for low guest turnout, we cannot change party packages on the day of your party, or provide any refunds in such cases. Upgrades are permitted if we have the space to accommodate your extra guests. Some add-ons can be added up to the start of the party (such as pizza & drinks), while other items, such as cake, may require a couple days notice.
How do I schedule a BounceU party?
It's easy! Just give us a call and we will be happy to reserve your special day and time! For your convenience, you can also request a date online or via email, and a party consultant will call you during normal weekday business hours.
I don't think there is enough time in the party room, can we have it for longer?
It is our experience that our party hosts do an excellent job of making the celebration fit the allowed time. Some parents have chosen to take unopened gifts home so that the children can enjoy their meal and good company in our facility. Unfortunately, we cannot offer extra time in the Party Rooms.
How many slices are in a pizza, and how much are they?
Our pizza is cut in to 10 slices and is $14.99 for a Large one-topping pizza. Check out our Party Food section for details.
