Up to what ages are the home inflatables good for? Would they be good for a 10 year old?
The recommended ages for our home-use inflatables are 3 and up, however the ideal age group for each inflatable varies. The ideal age typically depends on the size of the inflatable and the included features. To give an example, smaller inflatables like the Little Bopper Bounce House or Tropical Splash Compact Slide are designed with smaller kids in mind. Not only would these inflatables not offer much excitement for bigger kids, they are also not designed to support children over 75 lbs.
On the other hand, larger inflatables with more features tend to be more popular with older children. While younger kids can find contentment in bouncing around all day, older kids typically prefer something with a little more action. For this reason, older kids do better with slides, combos, or with larger bouncers which have enough extra space for their friends.
In general, no matter which inflatable you’re using, it is important that players in a Bounce House or other Inflatable Play Structure are evenly matched in size, age, development, and skillset. As always, use common sense, follow safety guidelines, and have a blast!
What’s the difference between a warranty and a “promise”?
The 2 Year Promise is, in fact, a warranty. It is similar to those on tires or a car battery, it is prorated as time goes on. However, because ours comes with a 1-year 100% warranty period instead of a sliding scale that starts on day 1, and because we feel the term “warranty” can be misleading on the front-end, we refer to it as a promise.

How much room is required for the blower tube? Where does it enter the bounce house?
A blower connects to the inflatable via a long yellow air tube. This tube is not typically included in our overall inflated dimensions because it doesn’t add anything to the actual size of the unit as much as it may require a little more space to set up. Therefore, we generally recommend that you allow at least 6 Feet for the inflation tube and blower.
On nearly all of our inflatables, this inflation tube extends directly out of the back. The exception to this would be in instances where the entrance to the inflatable is situated in the back, in which case the inflation tube will extend from the side. An example of this would be the Tropical Splash Compact Slide, or the Shark Park 10-in-1 Water Park.
