What is the starting age to play?
The starting age varies; the minimum weight for our small bubbles is 50 lbs. Generally this translates to kids 8+ years old.
What games do you normally play at an event?
We are totally flexible and accommodating to what the participants want, but of course we will make recommendations. Our favorite games are Bubble Soccer, Last Man Standing, Sharks and Minnows, Capture the Flag and 1v1 Jousting (great for funny videos!)
How many games can we play at each session?
For our most popular booking, the Smashville Package you will have 2 hours of gameplay. A sample schedule is below.
1. Rules: 1min
2. Bubble soccer: 10min
3. Last man standing: 2 min
4. Switch participants: 5 min
5. Repeat 1-4 as needed, changing the games as desired
Do you have a facility where we can play indoors?
You are responsible for providing your own venue for private events. Indoor or outdoor is fine, as long as the surface is safe for play. Play surface should be grass or turf preferably. We have also teamed up with several facilities in the area that have indoor fields for rent. Check out our venues page for recommendations. Local parks are great also! We have some favorites so just ask!
Can we have a Bubble Ball tournament?
Yes, just let us know when you book that you want to play tournament style. We will discuss the logistics with you prior to the event.
Who is in charge of the games?
The attendant will organize games, inflate bubbles, prepare the field, and go over safety rules with everyone. The attendant will also keep the score. Please note that events that have over 24 players require a second operator. This is to ensure safety, and also to streamline gameplay. If you are a school or Church, you can provide a volunteer to help chaperone.
Are there different size Bubble Balls?
We have youth size bubbles that fit ages from 8 to 12 and teen/ adult sizes that can accommodate ages 13-55. Participants who have high BMIs may find the balls uncomfortable or be unable to wear them properly.
How much do the bubbles weigh?
The adult bubbles weigh about 25 Lbs. Child bubbles weigh a bit less.
Is it possible to get injured inside the Bubble Ball?
Yes, while there is a risk of injury in any sport, as long as you follow the safety rules, your risk is greatly reduced. The attendant on site will make sure everyone is wearing the necessary safety gear when in the bubble. Horseplay should be avoided for safety reasons.
What should I wear?
Comfortable athletic clothing and tennis shoes (No CLEATS or flip flops/sandals please).
Players must remove ALL loose items and jewelry including phones, rings, earrings, eyeglasses, and necklaces before the game.
Should we have water on hand?
YES! Bubble Ball is fast-paced and depending on the weather/heat you may want a sports drink on hand. We recommend that water be provided by the client to keep everyone hydrated.
Am I required to sign a waiver to play?
Yes, all players must sign a participation waiver before playing. See the top of the page to download a copy if you having an event with many children. For players under the age of 18, a parent or legal guardian must sign on their behalf.
A dry, clean, obstruction-free, flat surface is highly recommended to ensure yours and the safety of your players. If unsure, please ask, we're happy to discuss.
