With the addition of water comes the element of added excitement and nearly all kids enjoy getting wet, if the water is a comfortable temperature. Throw in soft bouncy castles and you’ve got a recipe for hours of happiness and great memories.

Bouncing water slides should be the first thing on the mind of an event organiser. In cases where an event is largely targeting adults but children are going to be present, it’s essential that kids have some fun of their own. With bouncy water slides, parents will be able to spend most of their time doing adult stuff rather than having to entertain their children the whole time.

Today there are a wide range of themed bouncy water slides. Neverland Castle in Auckland specialize in water slide hire throughout the city and have an excellent range of quality inflatable slides including the Polar Bear bouncing water slide, the Orca water slide, the Jungle Slip n Slide, Treasure Island and the Castle and Adventure Combo. These vary in price from $280 to $360 per 6 hours. They range from 6.5m long to 8m long.

Considering the price of taking children to the local theme park, it makes perfect sense to bring the theme park to your own back yard. Whether it’s for a kids birthday party or just to keep kids happy for the day, hiring an inflatable water slide is the perfect solution.

If you’re looking at organising a party at your house or another location and have a bit of outdoor space then you might like to consider hiring a bouncy castle.

As you know, it doesn’t take long for kids to get bored. They have wondering minds and restless feet and are always looking for the next best thing to put their limitless energy into it.

At a birthday party if there weather is favourable then having them outside playing and being active should be the first priority. There aren’t many outdoor activities that can hold a child’s attention for as long as a bouncy castle. Let’s face it, there aren’t many adults who’d turn down quickly slipping their shoes off to have a whirl on a bouncy castle.

Kids and bouncy castles are a match made in heaven. As long as there’s air in both of them, the outlook is going to be bright.

History of the Bouncy Castle

By | News | No Comments

In Auckland bouncy castles are being inflated for kids parties and public events every day. They’re a fantastic source of fun, excitement and entertainment for kids of all ages. So how did the infamous inflatable bouncy castle all begin?

To this day there is a great debate between Americans and the British as to the origin of the first bouncy castle. The British do however seem to have more information that supports their claim.

In 1962 John Scurlock of Shreveport in Louisana played a major part in triggering the idea for a bouncy castle. He was experimenting with inflatable solutions for swimming pools, tennis courts and other enclosures and noticed that his employees were have a great old time jumping on them causing them to lose air and then refilling them.

Scurlock then decided to design an inflatable kids entertainment apparatus and then launched a business called Space Walk, specialising in what were referred to as inflatable kids moon walks. His first creation was a large air mattress and in 1967 – 1968 he decided to add walls. Both the walls and mattress were inflated by two independent fans. It wasn’t until 1976 that support netting was added.

Moonwalk Rental Company was launched in 1969 by Frances Scurlock (John’s wife). They hired bouncing inflatables for $19.95 for 24 hours. They generated a lot of interest for fairs and carnivals, but not so much private use because of the high costs involved back then.

To this day, moonwalks are also referred to as bouncy castles, jumping castles, spacewalks and inflatable rides. The bulk of bouncy castles today are hired out for private use for kids birthday parties and other domestic gatherings.

The bouncy castle industry has grown significantly over the past 10 years and you can now hire bouncy castles that come with slides, obstacle courses and climbing walls.

Neverland Castle has 17 bouncy castles for hire in Auckland that can be delivered at no cost and start at $130 for 6 hours.
