If you make a mess on our equipment, we ask that you clean it up as quickly and safely as possible. A cleaning charge may be incurred if there is substantial mess and this may be taken out of your deposit. Our definition of normal dirt is a little bit of sign the castle has been used, however if there is rubbish left inside, or excessive mud or excessive amount of leaves, this will incur the additional cleaning charge.

- When deposits haven't been made before delivery date
- If a customer rings up less then 48 hours before delivery trying to change their order or castle (you can only change by adding on additional items, but you cannot change castle or castle design less then 48 hours before delivery, even for a last minute booking)
Can the inflatable be in contact with walls or trees?
Unfortunately not, as it will damage the vinyl on the inflatable. When we deliver the inflatable we will survey the area and place it to avoid contact with these damaging surfaces.
How does the inflatable stay blown up?
Our inflatables are all constant air inflatables. It is therefore continually filled with air which comes from an electric blower. The blower is connected to your power supply by a sealed, heavy duty extension cord supplied by us. Electricity usage is minimal however we can only place two blowers on each circuit. It is the responsibility of the client to ensure the wiring/power is strong enough to handle our blowers. We operate on 1.5hp and 2hp blowers, depending on which blower it does require either 1000watts or 1500watts of power. In some old halls or locations the wiring may not be strong enough resulting in lower revolutions of the blower, causing not much air pressure to be applied. The best way to check is with a voltage metre, we rarely have this problem and in the past 4 years of operation have only encountered this 3 times. If this occurs we cannot be held responsible or give a refund as power supply in a location is the responsibility of the client.
