Please notify your party guests of the following: ALL food, drink, gum, candy, slime, makeup, nail polish, paint, anything that stains, should be kept away from all rental items. Please no jumping, running, pulling or swinging on the equipment. Please do not move items (unless its the bed trays (stacked neatly against the wall or other safe area). Please do not sleep on the décor pillows (for hygiene reasons). You may place the décor pillows in the bag we leave behind to store them in. We suggest having each guest bring a sleeping pillow for bedtime or we can provide them for an additional fee. No smoking around the slumber party items. We will not set up if the room smells of smoke. (Smoke penetrates the party items and require additional cleaning fees). And please keep pets away from items as well (Additional cleaning fees will apply). Doing these things will help ensure all guest are safe and all items are free of damage.
What is the dimension of the tents?
The dimensions of each tent are approximately 72 inches long x 48 inches wide x 48-84 inches high. (Approximate size of a twin bed setup).
We are able to arrange the tents in many different ways to make them fit. We require that furniture is removed and the room is cleared prior to our arrival. (We do not move furniture). Please be reminded that if you are having the tents face towards each other, there needs to be enough room to walk in the middle of the tents for guests to access their tent space (at least 1-2 feet). We will try our best to move tents around to fit your cleared space however if all rental tents do not fit we will fit what we can and there will be no refund on unused tents.
