People Often Ask:
How loud are Blast Zone Blowers?
We often get this question, so we had an independent lab measure the decibel rating of our blowers, while attached to a bounce house, which is the most practical application for this test. Each measurement was taken 1 meter from different parts of the blower – The outlet nozzle, inlet, opposite side of inlet, and rear. We then averaged the ratings, which were similar in each position. We did it this way because most people are concerned with the level they will perceive when using the product, rather than the specific rating of the motor itself.
Typically users are not this close to the blower, so the actual decibels registered by players would be lower, or substantially lower than these results. The average reading for the various blowers was 73dB, with a range of 67-83. The 67 dB reading is the blower used on smaller items designed for younger players, while the 83 rating is at the outlet nozzle of the blower we use on the largest Home Use Bounce House and Inflatable Water Parks, typically designed for older players, which also happen to be products where the blowers are commonly further from the entry or play area.
We usually tell people the sound of the blower is similar to a vacuum cleaner. Reviews of test results on a number of common vacuum brands ranged from 75dB to 90dB, so the more accurate answer is “Our Bounce House Blowers are typically quieter than a relatively quiet vacuum cleaner.”

This is wonderful, do I have to worry about this getting holes in it if it is used on concrete?
We get this question way more than we’d like. Please do not use any inflatable on concrete or hard surfaces. You need to worry about safety first and foremost, but yes, the concrete can also damage the inflatable!

Pirate Blaster Inflatable Water Park.
Question: What are the differences between this version (Blaster) and Pirate Bay? I noticed it said improved design. Thanks!
The Pirate Blaster is indeed an improved version of the Pirate Bay, in that it adds a couple features. First, an “Inside Return” path is added to the inflatable water park, that allows kids to reach the climbing wall to the slide without exiting the water park. This keeps grass and debris out of the splash area, since kids don’t have to get out and get back in repeatedly.
Second, the Blaster has a reconfigured pool that is a little more efficiently geared towards kid’s play habits.
As far as the other “improvements” – The Pirate Blaster was the first to feature a couple of upgrades to the design structurally that are more “Behind the scenes” but have since been applied to the Pirate bay, and are included on all Pirate Inflatable Water Parks sold since 2014.
So when deciding between the two very similar items, the Pirate Bay offers a lower entry price, while the Blaster adds the return path, updated look and reconfigured pool to the Pirate-Themed Inflatable Water Park
