If you were to ask any inflatable manufacturer whether or not you should allow adults to go on your jump house, their answer would likely be “no”. You have to realize, though, that the manufacturer of your bounce house is doing everything they can to make sure that they don’t put themselves in a position where they could be sued. No business wants to be sued, and when you’re dealing with something like selling rental units you have to do everything you can to protect yourself. But does that mean that adults are not able to go on your bounce house?
Letting Adults On
Owning a bounce house business can be difficult, especially when you’re trying to do everything you can to adhere to the rules that the inflatable manufacturer gave you when you purchased the unit. One thing that almost all bounce house rental business owners eventually come across is adults asking if they are able to enjoy bounce house. That is when you have to make a decision: do you let the adults on to the bounce house and keep them happy all the while risking your unit popping, or do you frustrate the customer and refused them entry to the bounce house?
This dilemma is one that only you can solve, simply because you are the one who owns the bounce house. Here are a few things to remember, however. Firstly, it is absolutely normal to see 10 or more children jumping around in a bounce house. If each of the 10 children weighs 50 pounds, that means you have a total of at least 500 pounds on your bounce house and it should still work beautifully. That means that if you were to have two or three adults weighing under 200 pounds on your bounce house, the unit should be able to withstand the jumping fairly easily.
It is up to you to decide whether or not you will allow adults on your bounce house unit. Feel free to look to the inflatable manufacturer in order to see what they recommend, just keep in mind the fact that they are going to be very protective of their units. And remember: you can always make it a rule that only a certain amount of adults are allowed on the unit at any one point in time, thus making your customer happy and keeping your unit safe as well.
