Challengers are you ready?  Be prepared to go head to head in a fun competition through The Gauntlet Obstacle Course rental. 

Each competitor will maneuver around multiple brightly colored elements (from overhead obstacles to horizontal and vertical pillars), climb the safety-padded foam step rock wall, and finish their challenge by going (safely, one at a time, feet first) down the 10’ high inflatable dual-lane slide. Smiles will be contagious as each racer squeezes, crawls and jumps through this exciting course. 

Feel safe when your little ones maneuver, climb and slide on the inflatable rental: this inflatable obstacle course has many safety features, including full length containment walls around the perimeter of the course as well as between the double slide, providing complete separation from those going through the course and those climbing and sliding. The slide loading deck is fully enclosed, has bumper rails the length of the slide, and bumpers at the end of the slide landing area to ensure no one slides directly onto the ground.  With both the entry and exit on the same side of the obstacle, it makes it ideal for those supervising.

So, what are you waiting for?  “Throw down the gauntlet” and watch your bouncers take the ultimate challenge in The Gauntlet Obstacle Course.



Safety is our top priority, above everything, EVEN FUN (sorry, kids!). This inflatable obstacle course rental includes a Watchdog Series 2 Blower Siren (to detect blower malfunction or other loss of air) and ASTM-approved, 2" thick, non-slip safety/landing mats (to create a safer area around the entrances/exits of your inflatable obstacle course rental), as well as 18" stakes to properly anchor your inflatable obstacle course rental - all free of charge! While we do our best to source the safest inflatable rentals, slips, trips and falls can occur, especially without proper supervision to ensure all Inflatable Safety & Operating Instructions are followed at all times.

Our flat fee of $19 includes delivery, professional setup and tear-down of your party rentals in Birmingham, Bloomfield Hills, Bloomfield Twp, Canton, Commerce Twp, Dearborn, Dearborn Heights, Farmington, Farmington Hills, Franklin, Garden City, Huntington Woods, Inkster, Lathrup Village, Livonia, New Hudson, Northville, Novi, Oak Park, Orchard Lake, Pleasant Ridge, Plymouth, Redford, Salem, South Lyon, Southfield, Walled Lake, Wayne, West Bloomfield, Westland, Wixom, and Wolverine Lake.



Inflatable Rental Safety 101 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

Safety First Always

1- Watchdog Series 2 Blower Siren: This blower siren was designed in 2018 to detect air loss caused by power loss to the blower, child mischief, or even a major rip/tear in the bounce house or other inflatable rental, sounding a loud alarm to make sure attendants are immediately aware. ASTM (American Society of Testing & Materials) requires these for any inflatable with a slide platform over 8’ tall, given the tip-over risk associated with the unexpected deflation of an inflatable slide unit, but we offer them - free of charge - with all of our bounce houses, inflatable slides, and obstacle courses.

2- Non-Slip Safety Mats: ASTM (American Society of Testing & Materials) and SIOTO (Safe Inflatable Operators Training Organization) recommend that, even on grass setups, all bounce house and inflatable rental entrances/exits have 2” foam non-slip safety mats extending 4’ in each direction, as slips/trips/falls are most common here. The surfaces of these mats should be non-slip, especially in the case of water slides. All of our bounce house and other inflatable rentals include these safety mats - free of charge!

3- Sufficient Ground Anchoring: ASTM (American Society of Testing & Materials) has written highly technical guidelines for manufacturers regarding the anchoring of inflatables, and almost all manufacturers now abide by these. However, some party rental setup crews take shortcuts here, by skipping some critical anchor points to save a few minutes. ALL anchor points on EVERY inflatable should be secured using at least 18” steel stakes – do not accept shortcuts!

4- Safe Entrances / Exits: Many older inflatables have unsafe entrance ramps, or none at all. Always look for bounce house and other inflatable rentals with entrance ramps, and ensure that these ramps have safety rails or, better yet, tunnel entrances like the one shown in the picture. Even with entrance/exit ramps that feature tunnels or safety rails, always ensure that 2" foam non-slip safety mats are placed to cover 4' in every direction of each entrance/exit - we include these - free of charge - with all of our ride-in/ride-on inflatable rentals.

5- Finger-Safe Mesh Windows: To better supervise your little jumpers, it's important that your bounce house rental has sufficient meshed window walls. More importantly, the mesh utilized in these window walls (and in other areas such as covered slide platforms) should be finger-safe; that is, small enough to not allow little fingers to get caught/tangled in the mesh, which could result in broken fingers or sprains.

6- Covered Roofs with Egress Ports: Bounce house rentals (and other inflatable rentals with bounce areas) without covered roofs can be tempting for little ones to climb up and out of – almost all new designs now have covered roofs. Also, ensure that the roof has an egress port (emergency exit) in the unlikely event the unit unexpectedly deflates and a secondary exit is required.

7- Covered Slide Platforms: ASTM (American Society for Testing & Materials) has issued guidelines requiring that all slide platforms be covered, and for good reason! Many older designs had open slide platforms where kids could fall (or more adventurous kids would attempt to jump) from the slide platform. The simple fix of having a covered slide platform is now the industry norm – all of our inflatable slide rentals feature enclosed slide platforms!

8a- Soft and Contained Slide Landing Area: Inflatable slides should have a soft, 18-24” deep inflatable slide landing area base, surrounded by inflatable containment walls, to ensure a soft landing for participants and keep them from sliding off the end of the slide and onto the ground.

8b- Inflatatable Water Slide Landing Areas: Our newer (safer) water slide designs keep water accumulation in the splash landing area to a maximum of 4" deep, instead utilizing an inflated base as a cushion (to reduce the potential for a drowning risk). Some states have already started to crack down on deep landing pools, such as Ohio.
