What You Need To Know

Weather is always changing so it is important to monitor the weather forecasts closely 72 hours before your event. 

Our No Hassle Weather Policy is simple: If the weather conditions do not allow us to safely set up and operate our equipment, we will work with you to find a suitable alternative date. This could be in the same week, or even the following week. If it is not possible to reschedule, then we will issue a full refund if canceling due to more than 5 mm of rain during the event times you have selected on your invoice. We understand how disappointing it can be to cancel an event and will always do our best to provide you with the best possible solution to ensure your getting your money's worth.

Weather may be different from one location to the next: We all know the weather can change very quickly and as with any outdoor event we are at the mercy of mother nature, Although it does not happen very often, we may have to cancel due to very poor weather or other extreme conditions to ensure the safety of the kids and our equipment.

We will always plan to make the delivery even if there may be a little rain in the forecast or a brief weather disruption often during the summer month we may get a storm that blows past and although it may be a nuisance but the PARTY MUST GO ON!
We understand that the weather can be unpredictable and we want to make sure your event goes as smoothly as possible. If we have a concern for safety or we feel you just won't get your money's worth during a forecast of inclement weather, we will send you a text or try giving you a call at the phone number you have provided on your invoice. However, once we have arrived, regardless of the length of time the equipment is used, the full price is still payable.

We also reserve the right to cancel if the forecast calls for high winds (over 24 km/h ), rain, or thunderstorms, as this can be a risk to participants and cause damage to equipment. If it is actively raining, the wind is above 24 km/h, and/or the temperature is below 5 degrees Celsius, If the driver has arrived and conditions are not safe they may not set up.

We value the safety of your children above all else and will not take any chances when it comes to the weather.
