Rental Pricing
Where can I find pricing for rentals?


Rental PricingAs you look around our web site you will find that most of our items do not include pricing. That is because prices are calculated during the quote process and will be determined by your rentals, staffing, delivery options, event duration and event location. If you rent multiple items, your order may qualify for our multi item discount, which is automatically calculated during the quote process.

The following section will give you base pricing for the majority of our rentals.

If you choose to pick up your rentals from our Norton office, you may qualify for a $50 discount.

In consideration of participating in the activities as described below (hereinafter collectively referred to as “activities”), and for other good and valuable consideration, I hereby agree to release and discharge from liability arising from negligence, Game Craze LLC DBA Fun Makers Party and its owners, directors, officers employees, agents, volunteers, participants, and all other persons or entities acting for them (hereinafter collectively referred to as “Releasees”), on behalf of myself and my children, parents, heirs, assigns, personal representative and estate as well as any other parties that participate in the activities during the agreed rental period, and also agree as follows:

Activities: List Activities Here

1. I acknowledge that the activities involve known and unanticipated risks which could result in physical or emotional injury, paralysis or permanent disability, death, and property damage. Risks include, but are not limited to broken bones, bruises and other bodily injuries caused by falls or contact with other participants; medical conditions resulting from physical activity; and damaged clothing or other property. I understand such risks simply cannot be eliminated, despite the use of safety equipment, without jeopardizing the essential qualities of the activity.

2. I expressly accept and assume all of the risks inherent in this activity or that might have been caused by the negligence of the Releasees. My participation in this activity is purely voluntary and I elect to participate despite the risks. In addition, if at any time I believe that event conditions are unsafe or that I am unable to participate due to physical or medical conditions, then I will immediately discontinue participation.

3. I hereby voluntarily release, forever discharge, and agree to indemnify and hold harmless Releasees from any and all claims, demands, or causes of action which are in any way connected with my participation in this activity, or my use of their equipment or facilities, arising from negligence. This release does not apply to claims arising from intentional conduct. Should Releasees or anyone acting on their behalf be required to incur attorney’s fees and costs to enforce this agreement, I agree to indemnify and hold them harmless for all such fees and costs.

4. I represent that I have adequate insurance to cover any injury or damage I may suffer or cause while participating in this activity, or else I agree to bear the costs of such injury or damage myself. I further represent that I have no medical or physical condition which could interfere with my safety in this activity, or else I am willing to assume – and bear the costs of – all risks that may be created, directly or indirectly, by any such condition.

6. I agree that if any portion of this agreement is found to be void or unenforceable, the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect.

By signing this document, I agree that if I am hurt, then I may be found by a court of law to have waived my right to maintain a lawsuit against the parties being released on the basis of any claim for negligence. I have had sufficient time to read this entire document and, should I choose to do so, consult with legal counsel prior to signing. Also, I understand that this activity might not be made available to me or that the cost to engage in this activity would be significantly greater if I were to choose not to sign this release, and agree that the opportunity to participate at the stated cost in return for the execution of this release is a reasonable bargain. I have read and understood this document and I agree to be bound by its terms.

We do have a $199 minimum order to qualify for free delivery and if you live outside the free delivery area you will have a distance charge.

Space Requirements
Planning your event, we are here to help


volume_boxWhen planning your event, be sure to look at the minimum required space for each of your inflatables. Some inflatables are quite large. The space required can be found on your contract or our web site, funmakersparty.com, and is displayed as “Space Needed: 20’W x 30’L x 17’H”

The first number is the required width needed. The second number is the length and the third number is the height. Remember these are minimum requirements, if you are renting several inflatables you will also need space for your guests to stand and walk around.

Fun Makers is happy to help you plan your event, if you are concerned with space we can create a mock up, free of charge.
