Inflatable Water Slide Safety Tips For Parents


Weather is an important aspect to take into account as inflatables begin to deflate when the weather turns bad, so make sure to check the weather report and get ready to get everyone out before this happens.

About clothing!

Ask the little ones to remove their shoes, jewelry key rings, belts, or anything with a zipper. If you can, ask parents and kids previously to the occasion, to bring comfortable suits, a swimming suit will work just perfect!


Adult supervision is one of the most important aspects when renting a water inflatable slide for kids. Sometimes the worst accidents happen due to a lack of parental’ supervision. If you find this a little tiring, taking turns is a good idea, but DO NOT ever leave the area unsupervised.

Educate the little ones

It is also important to always educate your children on security concerns and explain to them the reasons why they are not ought to do certain things when using water slides. Instead of setting many ground rules, please give them a reason not to do these things!

Avoid for it to get crowded!

To avoid security concerns, manage the turns for every kid. Allow time between riders, so it does not get crowded. However, if crowding begins at the end of the slide, briefly interrupt and ask riders to clear the area.

To keep in mind!

Don’t allow riders younger than 5 years or people that weigh over 275 pounds. For better information, get in touch with your party rental Miami Beach, and ask for the specifications. Remember each inflatable is different from the other, and this information may vary. Also, pregnant women or individuals with heart conditions should not be allowed on the slide.

Keep it clear!

If you are preparing a night party, or the party extends to the night, get ready and rent light equipment beforehand. Lightning should keep the party safe.
