Inflatable / February 5, 2019 / Zurie Chandonnet
A manufacturing company that is known to have a very detailed and helpful owners manual is Magic Jump Inc. located out of Burbank CA USA. Once you are educated in the setup and takedown process you should now focus on the product and how to operate it for a real party occasion. First and foremost before you take the inflatable to any party it must be thoroughly checked to see if there are any damages that should be patched or repaired. Damaged products should NEVER be rented out since they can easily cause damage to participants. Now it is time to deliver and actually setup the moonwalk.
These are a step above the event rentals but with the same basic concept. Instead of renting inflatables and choosing some employees to man them this company targets specific carnivals fairs and public events like the California State Fair. They set up a permanent location at these events pop up a large inflatable and people purchase tickets to enjoy the inflatable area for a certain period of time. For this company the wear and tear on the inflatables is less sporadic and more of a full time concern. However they make a constant stream of money during the events unlike the one-day rental options.
Many of these companies make up their start-up costs in only one season! Plus the advertising is done for them as each public event draws in more and more people. The downside is that the cost of a rental space combined with paying a full-time team of employees can be pretty high and more accidents are prone to happen to your inflatables in a large crowd of people. And finally there is the indoor inflatable play center option. Family fun centers are popping up all over the United States and are doing surprisingly well. Children of all ages enjoy coming to locations with a series of inflatables vendors and video games.
