- Suffocation and Entrapment.
- Electrical Hazards (Electrical Shock and Burns Injury) and Dangerous Machinery.

What are the Causes of Bouncy Castle Injuries in the UK?
The most common causes of bouncy castle injuries in the UK involve tripping, falling or being pushed out of a bouncy castle. It is also possible for the inflatable play equipment to deflate and collapse, potentially leading to suffocation and crushing injuries.
Where Can Bouncy Castles Be Erected?
Bouncy castles can be erected in almost any space large enough to accommodate them. Few hiring companies are willing to erect these inflatable play areas on concrete or asphalt surfaces, however. Grass, sand and other soft surfaces are far safer.
Do Bouncy Castles Need to Be Tested Before Use?
All inflatable play areas should be tested before being used. This is a part of the erection process, where the person responsible needs to check for deflation or other concerns. If any inflatable isn’t tested, you can make a personal injury claim.
Do I Need Bouncy Castle Insurance?
If you are setting up a bouncy castle in a public area, then you will need to pay for public liability insurance. If you are hiring the bouncy castle for a private party, you may not need insurance – however, it is advisable.
Can I Use My Bouncy Castle in Adverse Weather?
You may not be able to use your bouncy castle in some adverse conditions (not that you’d want to anyway). There are some castles, particularly covered ones, which can be used in adverse weather conditions. Strong winds can be a particular concern.
How Strong Does the Wind Need to Be Before Bouncy Castles Become Unsafe?
The suitability of the wind strength depends on the size, and style of the bouncy castle. Bouncy castles are unsafe to use in winds exceeding twenty miles an hour. In the past, children have died due to inflatables being blown away.
Can Bouncy Castles Be Used in the Rain?
Bouncy castles can be used in the rain if they are covered. However, be aware that the rainwater can make the inflatable play area much more dangerous to use. Accidents on inflatables are more common during the rain and other adverse weather.
