Bounce House Safety: Avoiding Injuries

There have been several news stories recently about injuries involving bounce houses – some even refer to it as a “public health emergency”. The statistics show a significant increase in just the past few years – so what could possibly be the cause?

You may have noticed that you can now purchase bounce houses, slides, obstacles, and other interactive inflatables from your local Toys R Us, Walmart, Sam’s Club, or Costco. These non-commercial units have really become available in just the past 3 years, but they are NOT made to withstand commercial use or high-volume events.

There are numerous critical differences. Commercial units come with:

  • a full 1-horsepower blower
  • 18 oz Fire Retardant Vinyl
  • triple stitch and reinforced corners
  • reinforced netting
  • safety stairs
  • back flow value for slow deflation in case of power failure
  • netting over entrance door
  • 18″ stakes (4 of them) to anchor the unit

These moon bounces are designed for commercial use, which means 6-8 children at a time. Compare that with the units available at discount stores:

  • ¼ horsepower blower
  • nylon material
  • single stitching
  • 4″ stakes to secure the unit
  • designed for home use, 2-3 children at a time

Parents might be tempted to use bouncy houses as baby sitters. It’s very important to have an adult supervisor monitor the inflatable at all times, since ANY interactive inflatable product can be dangerous if unsupervised, and can easily result in injury.

Chicago Bounce House RentalAt A Moon Jump 4U and AMJ Spectacular Events, our FIRST priority is always safety. We ALWAYS anchor the bounce house to the ground.
