The rule of thumb is that any child under the age of 3 is not ready to go on a large commercial inflatable. Although very safe, there are concerns about the younger child's ability, balance and size to safely use the inflatables. For this reason please refer to the minimum and maximum height requirements set out by the Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA) for each licensed inflatable at public events that are required by law to be followed.
The height requirements can be found on each inflatable as reference for the parents and attendants. As a reference please note that the average 4 year old is 40" high according to kidshealth.org.
The height requirements are as varied as there are inflatables as you will see in the list that follows:
|Artic Plunge Polar Bear Slide||42 inches||72 inches|
|Mega Mountain Obstacle Course||36 inches||No Maximum|
|Cars Obstacle Challenge||40 inches||72 inches|
|Big Bounce||30 inches||No Maximum|
|Mickey's Playland||30 inches||40 inches|
|Wrecking Ball||40 inches||No Maximum|
There are a number of inflatables suitable for toddlers and most will accommodate the 5 years to adult age groups.
