- If you have a party that is all outdoors and are cancelling your party, we will work with you to either reschedule or refund your party.
- If you are moving your party indoors, we can convert your party to our Indoor Bubble Show.
- If you have booked our combination indoor show + outdoor bubble play, we can either convert the party to our indoor bubble show only - or we can stay for as long as you have booked us and continue to play bubble games with the kids indoors. The amount due will only be for what you choose to do.
We do not refund your deposit if..
If we show up to a party, and you have not canceled our services, the full contract amount is due. We do not give refunds for weather unless you cancel BEFORE the party. We do not give refunds because it was cold or windy on the date of the party. In fact, we tend to be the most fun thing at those rare parties with miserable weather! :) We are willing to get wet and cold right along with the guests.
Right to Refuse Service
Our staff and their safety is of utmost importance to us. If the scheduled bubblist or any performers feel at any given time that their safety has been compromised or if they have entered into a volatile situation, are abused physically, emotionally and/or sexually harassed in any way, we have the right to refuse service and have instructed our staff to exit the premises immediately in such a case.
