It depends - all cities and park systems have different rules and regulations. Most allow inflatables as long as everyone follows the guidelines they've established. This may include renting a pavilion, getting a special permit, setting up in pre-designated areas, supplying proof of insurance, meeting with park staff in advance, etc. Some change their policy about inflatables every year, and we try to keep abreast of these changes as they happen.
We keep detailed notes on the parks we have visited thus far. You are welcome to check with us for specific park information, and if we do not have the answers in our file, we will gladly research the park in question and get back to you with the pertinent details.
With each park system, there are important questions you should ask to prevent getting yourself into trouble:
- Do you allow inflatables in the park I want?
- Is it first come, first serve, or do I need to make a reservation?
- Do you require a special permit to have a jumping castle there?
- Does my park have electricity strong enough to power a jumping castle?
- Is the electricity located within 100 feet of my party location?
- Do I need to fill out forms to reserve my park?
- Do I need to put down a deposit?
- How far in advance do I need to submit my application?
- How much does it cost to have my party at the park?
