How much notice is required when making a booking?
To ensure you are able to book the castle on the date and time you would like, we suggest booking in advance (more for corporate or Christmas bookings). Warmer months are generally busier, they do book out quite fast, and some designs are more popular than others. If you would like a specific castle design to fit in with your theme, we ask that you secure your booking early, if you are unsure you are welcome to pencil in the date; we will confirm with you as the date becomes closer.
If you are unable to find the date and time you are after, please still contact us and we will do our very best to try and accomodate you.

Overnight Castle Hire
It is possible to book an overnight castle hire if your party/event finishes later in the night. There are some conditions though that must be complied with and they are listed below.
- The yard in which it is placed must be secured. (e.g. fenced)
- There cannot be any loose animals in the yard overnight
- The unit must be switched off once everyone has finished playing
- Customers must make sure there is sufficient light for safe jumping
- There will be a $200 bond to ensure the castle is as clean when we pick it up as it was when first setup
Overnight hire is a little more expensive than a daytime hire due to the fact that the castle must be inflated and dried out the next morning to air any dew which may have settled on the castle overnight.
Please contact us if you would like an overnight hire email@example.com
When do you deliver?
We are committed to delivering your inflatable on or before your requested time.
For events with specific time slots are allocated for bookings, we make sure to deliver and pick up on time. For informal bookings, we are more flexible with time. On a day when several castles are booked for the same time (i.e 4 castles are booked to be delivered at 12pm and are all on the different sides of the city) in order to deliver all castles on time our driver might deliver your castle earlier than your requested time of delivery and you will not be charged any extra for this.
This will be confirmed with you prior to your booking.
How long does it take to set up/pack up the castle?
It takes around 15 – 20 minutes to set up the jumping castle depending on the type of access. It takes around 20 minutes to dismantle the jumpy castle. The jumping castle should not be moved to any other location once installed by us.
Castles weight in excess of 150 Kilos and cannot be lifted over fences or obstacles. Please advise us when booking if you have access issues, stairs, or steep driveways.
Our castles take a few minutes to inflate. The laying out and setting up of the castle is what takes the most amount of time. It may take slightly longer to pack up though as all of the air needs to be squashed out of the castle.
These times will be depended on the accessibility of the site.
Is the set up and pack down done within my booked time?
The set up and pack up is always done outside of your booked time.
For backyard parties the set up and/or pack up can be done anytime during the 2 hours prior to your booked start time; this is because we often have many castles to set up at the same time.
For supervised bookings the castle will generally be set up in the 30-60 minutes prior to your booked start time.
Access will need to be made available. This information will be clarified and confirmed with you prior to your event.
What size is the jumping castle and how much space will I need?
Our jumping castles are 5m long x 4.5m wide x 4m high. You must also allow at least 1metre clearance around the castle for flex when the children are bouncing as well as the blower at the back of the castle.
Please also ensure that a power supply is nearby. Check for any overhanging trees and branches.
In case of narrow, uneven or steps please notify us in advance.
What happens on the day of castle hire?
On the day of your jumping castle hire, we will attend at the location entered on your booking form and confirmed with you prior to the day of booking. We will completely install the jumping castle which includes a complete safety check.
We will also take you through the operations of the castle and advise you in how to operate and supervise the jumping castle. We will go through the terms and conditions of hire with you for you to read and sign. These will also be emailed to you prior to your booking.
Can we move the castle once it is installed?
Due to safety & insurance requirements the Castle cannot be moved once assembled.
Can the castle be set up in a park, picnic point, sporting ground or public reserve?
Yes! We do not charge you any extra to set up in a park. If you require us to set up in a public reserve or park, you may need to get permission from the park or centre to have a jumping castle as well as check if there are any requirements or fees.
The ground must also be clear of any sharp objects or obstructions prior to castle arrival and set up. You may need to hire a generator if there is no power supply.
Can the castles be set up on any surface?
Our jumping castles can be placed on most surfaces i.e. grass, timber deck, concrete etc. It needs to be flat, even and clear from any sharp objects, stones, tree branches, garden waste and any animal waste that may damage or dirty the castles.
We provide a custom made heavy duty canvas tarpaulin to be placed underneath the castles and use multiple sandbags that are secured to the jumping castle.
Does someone need to supervise the jumping castle while it is in use?
A person over the age of 18 years or above must supervise the castle at all times. The nominated person must be a responsible person who can maintain safety and supervision and must not be under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
The supervisor must always have a clear and unobstructed view of the children and must not leave the inflatable unattended. If they do need to leave the castle for any time, they must appoint another supervisor over the age of 18 years.
Cleaning of the castles and how do you clean them?
Hygiene and cleaniness of our castles is very important to us. We take great care of our castles to ensure they continue to look clean and our customers are assured they are safe, healthy and hygienic to use.
At both setup and packup, we blow down and vacuum the castle to remove any debris that may have tracked in from little feet and hands or become stuck in the seams.W
We use an eco-friendly solution that kills 99.99% of bacteria to clean down the castle surfaces before packing away.
Ona regular basis, our castles are inflated, scrubbed down and dried thoroughly to maintain their sparkle and cleaniness.
What happens if we damage the castle?
If there is a damage to the equipment, the hirer will be liable for all damages and the cost of repair for the castle, including transport costs. This is set out in the Terms and Conditions document you will receive.
Do I need a generator?
If you are having an outdoor event in the park or a playground where a power point is not available you do need a generator. The hirer will need to organise their own generator.
Are the castles safe and are there any safety requirements?
All our castles are fully enclosed so that no one can fall out of them. The castles are tied down to very heavy sandbags.
The castles are complaint to the Australian Standard AS3533, however, it is the hirer’s responsibility to ensure that the castles are operated in a safe environment and all safety guidelines are met and the castle is supervised at all times while in use.
The hirer must turn off the equipment in case of bad/wet weather and notify the owner immediately of any damages or accidents.
You will receive our Terms and Conditions outlining all the safety requirements for hire and use.
How long does the jumping castle stay up for?
The castles will stay up as long as the blower stays connected. The blower must always stay plugged into a main electrical socket at all times. DO NOT plug extension lead into a double adaptor or powerboard as this may cause deflation of the castle.
What happens if it rains or bad weather?
We strongly recommend that the castles should not be used in bad weather to ensure safety of children.
If there are strong winds or severe weather conditions forecast for the day of the hire, A Sprinkle of Magic reserves the right to cancel a booking if safety of persons deemed would be at risk. We would be happy to reschedule or refund the deposit if such an event does occur.
