Buy a Bouncehouse

Picture
Ever want to own a bouncehouse but the ones available at your local retailer are just not cutting the mustard? Don't Worry! We know exactly how you feel. Check out the article below for the best place to buy a commercial bouncehouse locally and abroad!

Decide what Bouncehouse Best Fits You

Picture
Bouncehouses are fun but also require some basic maintenance to ensure you have the optimal bouncing experience.  A bouncehouse should be cleaned and sanitized after each use.  Be sure to choose a bouncehouse made out of easily cleanable materials like vinyl. A bouncehouse also needs to be dried out each time it gets wet or else mold will develop and ruin the bouncehouse! Finally, remember that a standard bouncehouse is 15 feet by 15 feet by 15 feet. Essentially most bouncehouse are like a giant cube; be sure to have plenty of space around all sides of the bounce to ensure that no objects will rub a hole in the bouncer.

Pick a Reputable Dealer/Manufacturer

Picture
This is perhaps the most important part. Be sure to buy your bouncehouse from an experienced dealer. There are lots of bouncehouses out there and some o them do not meet safety standards. Remember a lot of bouncehouses are made in China who may not have the same production or safety standards as the United States.  Always check where  the boucehouse was made. 

A stress Free Buy

Picture
Why not let someone else do the work for you? Have you considered buying a used bouncehouse from a reputable rental company? At Executive Events & Entertainment we take pride in knowing the bad bouncers from the good. We have spent years sifting through different inflatable manufacturers and we have a good list of great bouncehouse companies which we use to purchase our own equipment.  At the end of each summer season we sell our bouncehouses at an extremely discounted price. That means you get a professional quality bouncer for a fraction of the cost.  An added benefit is that the bouncehouses we offer are so gently used that it is difficult to tell the difference between our used ones and a brand new bouncehouse.

Going to rent a bouncehouse? Well, we are here to inform you of several things to look for when renting a bouncehouse regardless of what company you are planning on using.  The condition of the  bouncehouse brought to you can be a good indication of the level of care the rental company places on their bouncers. Let's face it, you want to be able to have trust that the rental company is providing a safe product for you and your family to enjoy. Check out the following tips on choosing the right place to rent a bouncehouse from.   

The Query

Picture
When renting a bouncehouse make sure you do your due diligence and pay attention to how your interaction with the rental company feels. Did the company ask how many guests you are expecting? Did they ask what the age range of the kids are? These are just two examples of questions that any bouncehouse rental company worth its salt would ask. A good rental company will want to make sure that you are renting the appropriate inflatable for the amount of guests and age of the participants.

Cleanliness

Picture
Once you have selected a company to work with be sure to note the cleanliness of the bouncer when it arrives.  Inspect the bouncer for mud or dead leaves/grass which may have been left behind from the last rental. This would be a sure sign that the company does not clean their bouncers regularly. Look for dark staining on the walls of the bouncer, this could be a sign that mold has taken root in the vinyl. Also, use your nose, a smelly bouncehouse is a dirty bouncehouse!

Follow-Up

Picture
A good rental company will ask you for your feedback after the rental. Feedback is important to any business. A happy customer is a repeat customer. Be sure that the company allows you to leave feedback online in places like google or Facebook.

We hope you enjoyed our tips for choosing the right bouncehouse rental company.  Be sharp and you and your friends & family can have a safe and enjoyable bouncehouse experience!
 
 
Executive Events & Entertainment here and we wanted to share with you some of the best and worst Halloween Inflatable Rentals! Whether it is a bounce house, obstacle course, or mechanical bull there have been some well conceived inflatables and....well... some pretty terrible ones. Check out our list, and as always you can find safe, clean, and affordable bounce house rentals HERE.

The Best

Here we have an inflatable haunted house. OK The idea was well thought up but unfortunately you have to come up with your own scare tactics. Add a few strobe lights, fog machines, and creepy sounds and you have a full blown haunted house experience.  This is not our top pick but it comes pretty close to being the coolest inflatable rental in awhile.
Here we have a bounce house pumpkin style. Who doesn't want to jump in a pumpkin shaped bounce house, well maybe one with a little less creepy of a face. This has to be the most disproportionate pumpkin face we have ever seen. Either way this bounce house will give you plenty off Halloween fun.
This inflatable obstacle course takes the prize as the coolest and best Halloween Themed inflatable we have ever seen. Comes with multiple obstacles and a trap door slide! A good color combination coupled with HD haunted house graphics on the front of the obstacle course makes this one an inflatable to remember!

The Worst

Welcome to the spiderdome! Act now and you can jump in a bounce house that has the same coloring as the black widow spider, no venom please! Although this seems like a normal bouncer, it got onto our list for two reasons. Firstly, the entrance is constructed with the sole purpose of tripping every participant that tries to enter or exit. Second, it is technically not a spider, it only has six legs. Last time we checked, most spiders have eight legs.
How about a nondescript black castle shaped bounce house in a creepy white room. In fact it i not the bounce house that should be feared, it's keeping that room clean! Overall this bouncer is not too bad but it may make parents uncomfortable that they can only see their kids from one side. 
WINNER! This is the absolute worst Halloween Themed Inflatable that we have ever seen. In fact, we can't even tell you what it is. Is it partially inflated? Is it an obstacle course or a haunted house tube thing? We have no clue! So if you are looking to rent a bounce house, obstacle course, or photobooth this lengthy holiday season; look no further than the best Bounce House Rentals around, Executive Events & Entertainment!

Ever wonder what the craziest bouncehouses ever made were? Well, OK, we realize that tons of loony and strange looking bouncehouses have been made over the years but this article will cover our top 5 from 2016. So without further ado' here are the strangest bouncehouses we found this year. The year is not over yet so we may find more and we will keep you updated with any new and wacky inflates we come across.

5. The Irish Pub Bouncer

Ever want the cozy intimate feel of a small neighborhood pub in your local..... a..... soccer field? There's a bouncer for that! Feast your eyes on the Irish Pub Bouncer. Complete with a faux fireplace. By far this is not the strangest bouncer we've found but if you enjoy beer and like to bounce off the walls.....literally! then this is the bouncer for you.

4.  A Bounce House....Literally

Here we have a house made out of......well..... a bouncy house.  This group funded project in southern California sought to alleviate the problem of homelessness by providing affordable and portable housing. You wont get into trouble for jumping on the beds in this house!

3. Inflatable Colon

Talk a walk through your colon! This inflatable was made for a hospital system in Ohio. The goal was to give kids an inside view of the human colon. Participants walk through a large inflatable tube meant to simulate the environment of the large intestine. Unfortunately there are no inside shots but who really wants to see where all their poo passes?

2. Dog Poop Slide

There is nothing better than an inflatable Giant Slide but here we see some definite design flaws. Kids enter the slide through the front which is the mouth of the dog. They exit....well....through the butt. Kids beware! the neighborhood dogs will certainly be interested in how you smell after riding this weird inflatable.

1. Pigs in the Poke

This one may not be as outrageous as the colon or the poop slide but it certainly takes the top spot due to just outright strangeness. A burning question arises when looking at this photos; What the heck are the kids doing? What is the point of this bouncer? Are all the kids eating trough style out of side of an inflatable pig? We may never know.  All we do know is that this is hands down the strangest inflatable we have ever seen!
We hope you enjoyed the list. If you are looking for a good old fashioned fun bouncer, slide, or obstacle rental. Look no  further. We have them here and with no dog butts! Call and book today (440)-271-1081.
 
 

How is a Bouncy House Made?

Picture
Ever wonder how a bounce house is made? Look no further! We will tell you everything you need to know about making bounce houses. Bouncehouses, obstacle courses, and giant slides. They key is choosing high quality materials to ensure a high quality end result.

What is high quality vinyl?

Picture
When choosing an inflatable to buy or rent, be sure to ensure that the inflatable is made from phthalate free 18 oz Vinyl PVC. This ensures that your inflatable was not manufactured using any nasty chemicals and that it is heavy duty enough to handle big kid bouncers (adults). Here at 3E we always purchase inflatables made of high quality vinyl to ensure durability and that the customer gets the best quality of inflatable available on the market.

Sewing Up Seams

Picture
Before any inflatable is produced, a 3D model is made using computerized imaging software that allows the designer to see what the inflatable will look like before it is sewn together. The software also tells the designer what the physical constraints are (i.e.  how tall the inflatable can be and still stay inflated etc.).  The next stage involves cutting the vinyl pieces. The average bouncehouse has over 50 separate pieces of vinyl. Once the pieces are cut they head over to the sewing machines where they are sewn together using high gauge coated vinyl thread.  Once the pieces are sewn together, the inflatable is inflated and tested to ensure there are no leaks.  Now the inflatable is ready for FUN!

Check out the video below to see how inflatables are made!

A big part of what we do at Executive Events & Entertainment is consumer advocacy. In essence we review the party packages being offered by our competitors and ensure that the deals you, the customer, are receiving are up to snuff. In other words if you find a deal at a bouncer company we cant beat than it might be too good to be true. This week we found such an instance being offered by a photobooth rental company in Solon.

Bait & Switch

      We received a call from a client (who will remain nameless) regarding a groupon being offered for a 3 hour photobooth rental for only $295.00. Seems like a great deal right? Think again! Upon further investigation we discovered that this deal is certainly too good to be true. When attempting to redeem the groupon for a photobooth rental we discerned that this company was indeed offering a photo station (open air photo taking equipment) not a photobooth! Further, delivery, staff, and props were all at an extra cost.

Price Breakdown

So, let's compare their package with the one offered here at Executive Events & Entertainment. For sake of ease lets say it is a 3 hour event and you want some funky props and an attendant with the booth. What would the cost be?

Photobooth Rental from Us

What's Included:
Completely Private Booth
Automated Printing
Attendant
A Box of Funk Props.
Customized Logo
Social Media Uploads.
USB drive with all the photos.
3 Hour Rental

 Total Cost: $495.00

Delivery: Free within 15 miles!

Groupon Competitor

What's Included:
Open Air Photo Station
Automated Printing
Attendant
A Box of Funky Props
Customized Logo
3 Hour Rental
NO Social Media Options
NO USB Drive with photos

Total Cost: $695.00

Delivery: $50-$100

So it would seem that when the numbers are added up our photobooth rental beats them all. So, whereas we are sure that groupon itself offers great deals; dont be fooled by the bait and switch technique. Some companies will put up any price that will get you to call.

Have you ever wondered how sno cones are made? Well you are in luck! This article covers how to make the perfect sno cone. Upon reading this you will be able to beat the heat with a delicious sno cone.

Step 1: Rent a Sno Cone Machine

Picture
There are two options when it comes to sno cone machines, you can either buy one or rent one. We personally recommend renting one but if you are dead set on owning your own high quality sno cone machine they can be found HERE. But!, if you want a hassle free sno cone machine (one you don't have to clean yourself *wink wink*), you can rent one form Executive Events and Entertainment. Click Here to Rent a Sno Cone Machine. Once you have your sno cone machine ready its time to add some ice and get your sno cone cups ready!

Step 2: Grind the Ice

Lift the handle on the top of your sno cone machine. scoop ice into the chute until it is full. Push the red button on the machine while simultaneously pushing, with even pressure, the chute lid back down. Be sure to keep your fingers and ice scoop out of the ice chute. Once the chute lid is all the way back down all of your ice has been ground and the chute is ready for a new scoop of ice. Be sure to fill the machine with at least five scoops worth of ice shavings before trying to make a sno cone. The more ice shavings in the machine, the colder the machine will be thus the longer the ice shavings will last. 

Step 3: Make the Perfect Sno Cone!

Picture
Your sno cone should have (whether you rented one or bought one) a scoop with a long handle that kind of looks like a soup ladle. First, take the aforementioned ladle looking device and scoop some ice shavings into the bottom of your cone shaped . If you are not using cone shaped cups then it is not really a sno cone is it? We might cover that next week. Once you have a good base of shavings in your sno cone cup it is time to form the dome and by its own right the most signature part of a sno cone! Take a scoop of ice shavings and flip the ladle device full of ice shavings onto your sno cone cup. before removing the ladle be sure to twist it while gently pressing down. This is what forms the dome of the sno cone. Then just add some flavored syrup and ENJOY!
