Any missing balls / accessories are subject to replacement fees. All outdoor inflatables are to be staked at all times.
STAGING & FLOORING
When choosing a location for a stage or dance floor, the most level area should be selected. Our wood parquet dance floor is for indoor use only, no exceptions.

Prior to tent setup, site must be clear of all sticks, patio furniture, animal droppings, overhead tree limbs that may interfere, debris, etc. Tents will not be setup under sap producing or fruit trees. All tents we install must be anchored to the ground at all times, no exceptions. There are several ways to do this. Our first priority is staking. This can be done in grass and asphalt. If done in asphalt, an additional drilling/patching fee will apply. Please know what is underground before we arrive. We are not responsible for any underground utilities, sprinkler systems, septic systems, etc. Keep in mind that overhead clearance (i.e. electrical wire, tree branches, etc.) is also necessary. If set-up is required on concrete, we can either use concrete anchors, which requires drilling, or water barrels. Permits for tents are customer responsibility. Note, that water barrel anchoring is a last resort. We reserve the right to refuse to install tents anchored by water barrels, if inclement weather is expected. Customer assumes all responsibility for tents anchored by water barrels, and is held liable for any damages or injuries/death associated with failure due to water barrel usage.
Sidewalls are an additional cost, and not included in the price of tents. Sidewalls are to be installed and removed by the customer. In the case of high winds, sides must be removed as they take away from the durability of the tent in high wind situations.
