Big Bounce provides tons of fun

Monday, April 6, 2009

Greencastle residents and their bear cubs have been clawing at the door of Big Bounce Fun House Rentals asking if their little cubs could check out the company's newest unit. They set up this Bear Bounce recently for little cubs to test at their home on S.R. 240 just outside Greencastle.
Big Bounce Fun House Rentals was established in 2006 by Andy and Susan Lorimer. The couple wanted to create a fun alternative for children to have at birthday parties while creating a safe atmosphere for them.

Susan managed a rental company in Indianapolis and felt comfortable in the inflatable industry. As the years progressed and requests were made for other items, Big Bounce Fun House Rentals grew their inventory.

"Now in 2009 we are happy to be at many events. We are pleased to cater to schools, churches, birthday parties, corporate events, birthdays, graduations, and open houses. At any get together Big Bounce is happy to bring our fun to you," said Susan.

Safety and high standards are an important part of the couple's business.

"Our company is fully insured and Sioto certified, which means that a safety certification class has been attended and passed. We also belong to IAAPA, which is a very prestigious affiliation in the entertainment industry, other members include Conner Prairie, Holiday World & Splashin' Safari, Coney Island & Indiana Beach," she explained.

"Each day we are sent updates from all around the world on the newest and latest equipment and safety standards," adds Susan.

Last November the Lorimars attended a conference in Orlando where they were able to attend ongoing education classes and purchased more equipment to bring back to Greencastle.

Some of their new equipment includes obstacle courses, bungee runs, tug n' goals, airbrush tattoos, human spheres, laser tag and the bear combo unit that is featured in the picture above.

"This is just some of the equipment. Of course we still have our famous 18' water slide, bounces, and jousts. We also keep our cotton candy machines, snow cone machines and popcorn machines very busy," said Susan.

At the end of last year they added yard signs to their inventory.

"People are able to surprise their loved ones with a message in their front yard for all to see. They have also been great for businesses to announce open houses, special sales or grand openings," explained Susan.

"We have been very blessed with this business and by Putnam County. We are happy to provide a service and what a fun way to do it. We love being invited to all these parties," she laughed.

Big Bounce also offers special birthday packages that can be found on their Web site www.bigbouncefunhouserentals.com. In addition to their big bounce units, they offer catering, disc jockey, singing telegrams, yard cards, character appearances and magic shows.

And if you are looking to surprise someone special they can provide customized party packages that are great for graduations, open houses and grand openings.

They provide free delivery within a 15 mile radius of Greencastle and free set up anywhere.
