Frequently Asked Questions

How long is the rental for?  How many hours and how late will you stay?

The average rental period is 2 to 4 hours.  However, we are very flexible and willing to adjust prices for other periods of time to accommodate your budget and event. Our cutoff time most events is 1:00am EST. This cutoff time in some cases can be extended for example after proms and school functions. Please contact us for more details.

 

What if it rains the day of my outdoor event or rain is in the forecast?

We can't control mother nature but don't worry we have you covered (literally)! At the time of your outdoor event rental, it is NOT mandatory that you rent the optional 25ft x 25ft inflatable canopy (see image below), However, since our equipment cannot be operated in the rain and it is unsafe to ride in the rain, you'll have the option to rent a canopy up to 5 hours before your event. Please note, if your event is outdoors we highly recommend you rent the canopy anyway because it provides an excellent layer of shade and is fitted with lights for riding at night.

Our bulls are dual voltage and can accommodate a 110-volt outlet and also a 220-volt outlet. If using 110-volt we require a 20 amp dedicated outlet.  We can provide a generator if we are not within 100 ft of a power source. The is a small usage charge of $25 to use one of our generators for the duration of the event.

A flat area of 20' x 20' will be enough for the inflatable mat, blower, and our control stand. If your event is an indoor event we require a minimum of an 11' ceiling height.
