- How long is the party?
Each party will last about 2 hours. You will have 1 hour of time in the bounce arena, 50 minutes in the birthday celebration room and 15 minutes getting checked in and moving from place to place.
- I don’t think 50 minutes is enough time in the party room, can we have it for longer?
Based on our party scheduling, we cannot offer an extended stay in the party room, however, it is our experience that our party hosts do an excellent job of making the celebration, be it pizza, cake or gifts, fit the allowed time. Some parents choose to take unopened gifts home so that the children can enjoy their meal and good company in our facility and then open presents leisurely at home.
- How early should we arrive before our scheduled party time?
We suggest that you and your guests arrive no earlier than 10 minutes before your scheduled start time. This allows plenty of time for collecting waivers and reviewing our safety rules. We suggest you put your party’s actual start time on the invitation and add the word PROMPT. If you put an earlier time on the invitation to ensure your guests arrive on time, it could negatively affect those guests who arrive early by causing them to have to wait much too long with their children. It is best to have as little waiting time as possible for the kids. Please be sure to inform your guests that if a child arrives late, he or she will lose play time in the inflatable arenas, as the party must start at its designated time.
- What happens if my guests or I arrive late? Can I get a time extension?
Unfortunately we cannot extend your party time when you or your guests arrive late. We host back to back parties every day and staying on-schedule is critical to our guest satisfaction and operations. The party room has to be cleaned and decorated for the next party. We appreciate you for understanding.
- Will my party have a party host the entire time of my party?
Your party host is at your service from start to finish unless you book the Partnership Party. In addition to supervising and assisting the children in the inflatable arenas, your party host will also set-up and serve your cake, food and drinks. Your party host will also take care of the clean-up.
- Is each guest, including adults, required to have a completed/signed waiver?
For insurance purposes, all guests who are using our equipments must have a waiver completed and signed by a parent/guardian when they come to Jump-n-Jive. We suggest that you include our waiver with your birthday invitation. Additional waivers are available at the front desk or on our website.
- Does each child need a separate waiver even if they are in the same family?
No. All family members can be listed on the same waiver. We have extras on hand in case a child forgets to bring theirs.
- Can I use my own decorations and/or paper products in the party room?
Yes. However, keep in mind, we provide “generic” plates, cups, napkins and forks free of charge. If you would like to bring your own themed products (such as plates, napkins, cups and table cloths), just hand them to your party host as soon as you arrive, and they will take care of setting them up for you.
- Can I bring my own goodie bags?
Yes, you are welcome to bring your own goodie bags as long as they are assembled. We do recommend that you check out our goodie bags. We offer regular and toddler goodie bags for only $3.00 and they contain 10 items.

- Can I order extra pizza or other food once my party has begun?
No. We must order food products the day before your party so that all meals are prepared to order with fresh ingredients. We do not maintain extra food products at the Jump-n-Jive premises.
- What if my child has a food allergy?
Please be sure to let us know if the birthday child or a guest has a food allergy. We go the extra mile to ensure that your party room has been cleaned and re-cleaned and there are no items which could potentially cause an allergy attack. We also maintain a nut free facility to ensure that children with any type of nut allergy are free to play without worry. If your child has a special diet please let us know and we will work with you to ensure your party is a success.
