Q.How long in advance should I book entertainment?
A.At Bounce Playground, we typically have a waiting list 3 to 4 week in advance of your desired party date. For example, if your party is taking place on May 4th, chances are that date is already been fully booked by April 4th. The reason we are booked this far in advance is that we only have a select number of entertainers who work in-house. We do not contract or hire outside entertainers. We recommend booking your party as soon as you are sure of the date and time of your event.
Q.How long in advance should I book entertainment?
A.To book and secure your desired time and date, we require a 50% deposit for entertainment & equipment rentals. We then put together a contract which will include all of the details of your event. The contract is then e-mailed to you where you may review and sign a final copy. Once you sign a copy of your party contract, you will receive an e-mail receipt and confirmation stating that your event is now booked. The remainder of the balance is due the day of the party before the start of the entertainment. We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, & Amex. Please note that deposits are not refundable, but transferable with a 14 day notice of cancellation.
