There are a lot of different kinds of bouncehouses out there. Featured to the left is a combo bouncehouse which has both a bouncing area and a slide! A common question we receive during the winter months is, "can an inflatable rental go indoors?" The answer is yes but there are a few things you should consider before attempting to get an inflatable indoors. Check out the following tips on bringing the fun indoors during the winter.
Tip 1: Check the Ceiling Height
The average bouncehouse is 12 ft tall but you need a ceiling height of 16ft. The extra space is needed because the bouncehouse will, for lack of a better word, bounce as the children use it. A good rule of thumb is that if you see the bouncehouse rubbing on the ceiling then it is a no go. Rubbing will cause a hole to form in the bouncer and it may deflate.
Tip 2: Check the Doors
A bouncehouse is not much fun if it can't fir through the door! A rolled up bouncehouse can be up to and over 48" inches. Be sure you have a door wide enough. A bouncehouse will not fit through a standard door; for example the front door of your home is a standard doorway.
Tip 3: You Can Always Ask
It never hurts to ask. If you are unsure your space is large enough or the doors wide enough then call and ask for a site visit. Some rental companies will send a representative out to measure and make sure you are choosing the best fit for your location. When in doubt, just ask.
Bonus Tip: Don't Limit Your Options
Don't limit your options. Depending on the size of your indoor space there could be all sorts of fun interactives available apart from a bouncehouse. You could have a Mechanical Bull or Photobooth Rental. Perhaps some indoor sports games like air hockey or fooseball. Be sure to explore all of your options!
