The following are a few examples and how they can be handled. Please use common sense when an emergency arises as these are only examples to use as a guide.
Loss of Electrical Power
The unit will slowly start to deflate when there is a loss of electrical power.
You will have plenty of time to help your users quickly and safely exit the unit as it takes 30-45 seconds for the unit to deflate. This situation can cause panic unless the adult supervisor stays calm. In case the unit deflates completely with users still inside the unit, all units have two emergency exit flaps located at the top of the unit so users can easily climb out of the unit through the emergency exit.
Check to see if the on/off switch on the blower has been turned off or the blower has become unplugged. If so, plug them back in and the ride will immediately re-inflate.
Contact or have someone contact Marvel Us Parties to check the problem.
Should rain or strong winds arrive, please evacuate the unit as quickly and safely as possible and deflate it.
If the unit becomes damaged while in operation, the procedure is as follows: If the unit becomes punctured or begins to lose air, assist all users from the unit and deflate it. Contact Marvel Us Parties immediately. Do not attempt to continue to operate the unit.
If Best Fun Inc. is not supplying your attendants you will need adult attendants to arrive early enough for a safety briefing. Accidents on equipment generally come from two things: too many participants on unit and unit not kept secured. Attendants should monitor amount of children/adults and make sure they're acting responsibility. They also should periodically check equipment for secureness to ground. Safety briefings are given before all
events and we require a signature from customer or representative stating this has been done.
$50.00 if equipment is returned unreasonably dirty (mud, sand, silly string, any food, drink, or candy etc.). A cleaning fee will be charged. NO EXCEPTIONS.

Attendant: $25.00 per hour - 4 hours minimum charge $20.00 per hour after 5 or more hours Company picnics $25.00 per hour - flat rate 4 hours minimum.
We generally contact you the week before your event to confirm details. At this time we’ll confirm final payment, method of payment, space requirements, delivery times, etc.
Where will you leave equipment when you deliver?
We will deliver and pickup all of the equipment from a mutually convenient location on the dock or ground level floor. If equipment needs to be taken to or picked up from a specific location or different floor, additional labor charges will be assessed. Please let us know prior to delivery where you would like the items to be placed.

Generally we need (1) 20 amp circuit for EACH blower. (other items can not be plugged into the same circuit) We furnish one 50′ extension cord. Unit must be placed within 50′ of power source. If you are using a generator, you will need a 2000 watt for each unit.
We’ll need someone at the event to show us where to set up. We’ll find out before set up if you’re event is on grass, asphalt, etc. We’ll also need to know if there are sprinkler systems. Also, drivers are required to pick up final payment at set up unless you’ve made arrangements to charge a credit card the previous business day. Failure to make this payment could result in your event being delayed or stopped.
