How To Set Up A Bounce House

We all know that a bounce house is an enjoyable activity for people of all ages. But a lot of people find it very hard to set up a bounce house properly. You can easily set up an inflatable bouncer by following a few steps.

If you are setting up a bounce house for the first time, it will take a little longer than usual. The hardest part of setting up an inflatable bouncer is to find the proper location to set it up. This guide will discuss how to set up a bounce house in a few easy steps.
How to Set Up a Bounce House

Now, let’s move on to discuss how you can set up a bounce house in most easy ways.

1. Check the Weather
Before you plan on setting up your inflatable bouncer for the day, make sure that you check the day's weather forecast to avoid any surprises. Bounce houses are light and can often fly away in heavy rain.

Check the weather and avoid if you see any of these in the forecast:
• Storm
• Heavy rain
• Heavy wind
• Hail
• Snow
• Lightning
If you want to set up the bounce house but the weather is not helping, you can set it up indoors and have fun.

2. Find a Location
The next step is to find a proper location for the bounce house. We generally set up a bounce house in the backyard where the area is grassy. But you can also set it up in a place where there is concrete, such as a driveway.

However, make sure that your chosen area does not have any low trees, power lines, steep inclines, or a pond or lake. It is essential to select a safe place for setting up an inflatable bouncer as most kids play in it, and their safety is our top priority.

3. Lay the Inflatable Bouncer Out
Once you are done choosing the location, it is now time to layout the inflatable bouncer. Using a tarp under the bounce house is better to prevent rips and tears at the bottom. All you have to do is unpack the bouncy house and unroll it over the area where you want to set it up. It does not have to be perfect as you can easily adjust it during inflation.

4. Set Up the Blowers and Connect the Inlets
The majority of bounce houses come with a blower that is suitable for that particular bounce house. Set up the blower and connect it to an electric outlet, but do not turn it on.
Connect the inlets of the inflatable bouncer to the blowers. A few bounce houses require two inlets to stay inflated, and you will have to connect those two inlets to two blowers. A few bounce houses come with quite a few inlets that can all be connected to one blower.

5. Close the Outlets
There are a few inflatable bouncers that come with separate ports for inlets and outlets. In cases like these, you will have to close all the outlets before you start inflating the bounce house.

6. Inflate the Bounce House
Once you have taken care of all the above steps, turning the blower on and inflating the bounce house is now time. Inflating a bounce house takes no longer than a few minutes, but do not let anyone get into it before you anchor the bouncy house properly.

7. Anchor the Bounce House
Anchoring the bounce house properly is one of the most important steps of setting it up. If you do not anchor it properly, then it can fly away with heavy wind or so. And this can easily cause injury to the jumpers.

8. Inspection
The last step is to walk around and inspect the bounce house and double-check all the anchors before letting the jumpers into the inflatable bouncer. It will also help you detect any tears or rips in the house or not.
How Long Does It Take To Set Up A Bounce House?

If you are setting up a bounce house for the first time, it will take approximately 45 minutes. A lot of this setup time is spent finding a suitable location and laying out the bouncy house. Once you have decided on an area to set it up, it will take you about 15 to 20 minutes.
The typical time of setting up a bounce house ranges between 10 to 35 minutes, depending on the type and size of the inflatable bouncer. The setup process includes all the steps starting from checking the forecast to the final inspection of the bounce house.
