Frozen Phenomenon

Frozen Party

In case you haven’t noticed, The movie Frozen is kind of a big deal.  Not only with girls either as some might think.   The boys love it too.  Even though the main characters are girls, they did a great job of diversifying the rest of the characters and storyline to keep everyone interested.  If you haven’t seen it yet, you are missing out.  It truly is a once in a generation film.  I like to call it the Frozen Phenomenon.

With a movie like this being so successful, there is bound to be a Frozen party here and there (ok everywhere).  It took some time for one of our manufacturers to secure the licensing to build a Frozen bounce house, but they finally got it done this past August.  Sir Bounce-A-Lot Party Rentals was the first, and so far the only in the area to secure a Frozen bounce house.   It is an awesome inflatable combo with a slide, and also a basketball hoop inside.

So if you are looking to have a Frozen party, give us a call.  Our Frozen bounce house really is a show stopper.  Every time we set it up the kids are beside themselves with joy.  We are also back on track for our princess parties.  We had to push things back a bit for the birth of our son.  We are putting the final touches on them as you are reading this.  A Princess Party would be a great tie in with the Frozen Bounce House or Princess Bounce House Combos.  Hope to hear from you soon.

Indoor Bounce House Rentals
Indoor Bounce House Rentals

“You can set these up indoors?”  I get asked that question every time I tell people that we can set up a bounce house indoors provided there is enough ceiling height.  Your probably thinking to yourself where in the world am I going to find somewhere to have a party that has enough ceiling height to set up a bounce house?  We thought the same thing until we discovered there are some amazing local places you can rent for a party.

My daughter, like myself and my wife, has a winter birthday.  Our house is pretty small, so inviting people here is not going to work.  Those fast food restaurant parties like when we were kids just aren’t the same since they removed their playground (and since a lot of people try to avoid fast food).   She is not into bowling.  Swimming parties are ok, but they exclude those who can’t swim or those who don’t want to swim from having fun.  We can go to one of those party places, but the parties are very rushed (like assembly line rushed), they are a bit pricey, and I swear she gets sick every time we go to one.  We started looking around and realized there was a large gymnasium down the road that we could rent for her party, and we could set up bounce houses inside.  The great thing is you are not charged per person, and you are not limited to a 2 hour window for your party.

We booked a 3 hour block at the gymnasium,  set up a bounce house, some games, a pinata, and ordered a bunch of pizza.  Best party ever!  The younger kids played in the bounce house.  The older kids and some of the adults played basketball because there was still another half court of basketball area left after the party set up.  We had roughly about 60 friends and family attend.  Because we weren’t paying per person, and we weren’t in a cramped space with a bunch of strangers, the whole family was able to attend.  Added bonus; No separate family party needed!

Now you read all of this and your thinking “sounds good, but how much am I looking at?”  The price of the Gymnasium for 3 hours, bounce house, and food and drinks for 60 people is right around the same as a 2 hour party at a party place for 15 kids.  Did I mention No Separate family party needed?  That’s right one and done.  No need for a cramped family party at home woohoo!

So if this party idea sounds like something that you might be interested in give us a call.  If you plan on calling around for a gymnasium, make sure they have a minimum ceiling height of 14 ft.  That will fit our Funhouse, and both of the Obstacle Courses.  Or you can reach out to us and we can give you tips on some places we have set up for indoor bounce house rentals.  Hope to hear from you soon 🙂
