Hire Agreement

AM Attractions Ltd t/a King of the Castle Scotland


Keeping everyone safe...



Health and Safety might seem a little over the top these days, but we take it very seriously - because we really care. The last thing anyone wants is a great event being ruined by unfortunate accidents or mishaps. For insurance reasons we also need to ensure that you are aware of all the rules and regulations surrounding your hire.

For that reason, we ask that you carefully read and sign our Hire Agreement when we deliver your bouncy castle or other hire equipment. Please print off a copy of this agreement if you would like to take a look before the date of your hire.




  1. It is the responsibility of the person who is hiring the equipment to ensure that all possible steps are taken to avoid injury to users or damage to the hired equipment. 

  2. A responsible adult must closely supervise the hired equipment at all times.  If a responsible adult is unable to supervise, please notify us as we can supply staff at £10 per hour.

  3. No adults are allowed to use the hired equipment unless you have hired an adult grade piece of equipment, otherwise, the equipment has an age limit of 14 years inclusively. It is strictly prohibited for both children and adults to be using the hired equipment simultaneously.

  4. Always ensure that the hired equipment is not overcrowded, and limit numbers according to the age and size of children using it. It is advised that children of mixed ages should not use the hired equipment at the same time.

  5. Do not allow children or adults to become boisterous, push, collide, fight or behave in a manner likely to injure or cause distress to others.

  6. To avoid choking and mess, no food, drinks or chewing gum to be allowed on or near the hired equipment.

  9. No smoking, pets or barbeques on or near the hired equipment.

  10. No person(s) shall be permitted to partake in the use of any hired equipment whilst under the influence of alcohol, drugs and/or any other intoxicating substance. 

  11. We are insured with full public liability insurance against the failure of our hire equipment, any claim is subject to an excess which the hirer concerned would be liable for.

  12. It is the responsibility of the hirer to check the dimensions of the equipment and ensure it can be i) safety assembled in their chosen location, ii) that suitable access exists for the delivery and collection of the equipment and iii) a power point is located no more than 25meters away.


  1. Climbing, hanging or sitting on walls or beams of an inflatable is dangerous and must not be allowed.

  2. Do not allow anyone to bounce on the front safety step as a child could easily bounce off the step and get hurt. The step is there to assist users in getting on or off.

  3. Ensure that no one with a history of back or neck problems is allowed to use the inflatable equipment as indeed any child who is feeling unwell or taking medication.

  4. Do not switch off the inflatable even if it rains. All electrical equipment is fitted with outdoor plugs.

  5. Do not allow anyone to be on the inflatable during inflation or deflation or whilst deflated.

  6. Please warn children of the tie-down points (if appropriate) and make the area behind the unit, where the electrical blower is sited, out of bounds for children.

  7. The inflatable should not be used if it becomes wet in the jumping area. If no shower cover is fitted and in the event of rain, the inflatable should not be used. Any wetness, including bubbling (which is normal), can be dried with a towel once it has stopped raining.

  8. Should the equipment fail for any reason, please ensure all users get off the inflatable immediately.

  9. No unauthorised person should move the bouncy castle or tamper with the electrical equipment.

  10. The inflatable must be returned in an acceptable condition, i.e. clean, unsoiled and undamaged. If it is badly soiled or damaged the hirer will be expected to pay an additional charge to cover the cleaning costs and our loss of earnings if the inflatable is rendered out of commission for any reason.

  2. If we are forced to cancel due to a failure on the part of our customer to make sure the site is suitable for our products i.e. lack of space, unsuitable surface, narrow gates or paths or dangerous obstacles which could damage our product(s), the client will be liable for the full cost of the booking.  Responsibility to ensure the site is suitable rests entirely with the person making the booking.  If in doubt, PLEASE ask.

  3. In the event of bad weather, we will offer you the opportunity to move your booking to another day.  If you decide not to reschedule your booking, you will lose any payments made.
