Inflatable Hoverball Hire and Rental


The Inflatable Hoverball is the perfect rental activity for Family Fundays, Private Parties, Council Events, Charity Events and just about anything else you can think of!

The Inflatable Hoverball package includes an inflatable surround, floating target balls and a range of weaponry including NERF foam guns, Mini-Crossbows and Bean Bags to play with.

The Inflatable Hoverball will be overseen by an operator (CRB/DBS checked and 1st aid trained) and be covered under our £10 million PLI policy with risk assessments.

The minimum age to use the Hoverball varies depending on the weaponry chosen. NERF guns are 8yrs and above and mini crossbows are 6yrs. As with all of our Inflatables the Hoverball has an annual safety certificate and the electrical items are PAT tested.

The Inflatable Hoverball is available for hire to events and venues in East Sussex, West Sussex, Surrey, Kent, Hampshire, Berkshire, Essex, London and Buckinghamshire.

The Hoverball unit requires 19’7″ 39’4″ x 8’2″/6m x 12m x 2.5m of indoor space. The Inflatable Hoverball unit will require a mains power supply for the blower. As the Inflatable Hoverball is always supplied with an operator, we do not offer overnight rentals.

About the Hoverball

How many people can play on Hoverball?

This depends on the setup and whether Nerf/Crossbows are used.

Can anyone use Hoverball?

Players must be eight years of age or over of Nerf Guns and six years of age and over for Crossbows.  Anyone deemed to be in an ‘unfit’ state to play due to the influence of alcohol or drugs may be refused on.

Can Hoverball operate in bad weather?

Hoverball cannot be used outside.

What you need

Can Hoverball Course be used outside?

No, Hoverball is for indoor use only. Please see Multi-Use Shooting Gallery for outside options.

Can Hoverball be used indoors?

Hoverball is suitable for Indoor events. Please see specifications tab for unit and space dimensions. Suitable access is required as the inflatable rolled up is 1m high so any doorways or corridors must allow for this and we need to know in advance if there are any steps in our set up route.

Does Hoverball require a power supply?

Yes, the inflatable requires one mains power socket within 50m of the setup area. Please note that our extension cables cannot run across roadways, paths or busy open public areas where they will become a trip hazard. For outdoor events where a power supply is unavailable, Altitude Events can supply a generator on prior request (this is subject to a small additional cost).

Do I need to supply anything or does Hoverball come with everything it needs?

Other than a patch of ground to set up on, we supply everything required to run the game, including the inflatable, guns/crossbows, ancillary equipment, bunting and operator.

How long does Hoverball take to set up?

Depending on the ease of access, the Inflatable will take our staff approximately an hour to set up.


Does Hoverball come with someone to run the activity?

Yes, our staff (CRB/DBS checked and 1st aid trained) will remain with the Inflatable throughout your event. They will give all players a detailed briefing of how the race works and run each race for you.

How safe is Hoverball?

Sessions are run by fully trained, experienced staff member (staff are first aid trained and CRB/DBS checked). We also operate with £10 million public liability insurance and have full risk assessments (copies of which are available on request). The Inflatable has an annual safety certificate and all electrical items are PAT tested for electrical safety.


How much does it cost to hire Hoverball?

We will tailor-make each Hoverball hire quote to the specifics of an enquiry. The Inflatable hire cost is dependent on factors such as your location, length of hire, date of hire and whether or not any other pieces of equipment are being hired for the same event.

Are there any additional costs?

The quote we send to you is all-inclusive so there are no hidden extras to be wary of.

How do I book?

When you are ready to confirm, we will send out a booking form complete with the booking terms and conditions to check over.

A quick note to say thank you 🙂 Fred and Tom were a joy to work with, friendly, knowledgeable, great teachers, very flexible and above all totally professional. Many of the participants told me how much they enjoyed the session and made reference to Fred and Tom. Having people like that as part of my support team makes my life so much easier. I look forward to working with you in the future.

Colin Smith, Corporate Day

Big thanks to you and Dale….client real happy with everything yesterday!

Jon, Corporate Event Company

We would like to ask you to pass on our Thanks to Joe, for making our Fun Day a big success, we have a lot of positive feedback from the families that attended, and were impressed with the variety of activities that were available for everyone to take part in.

Mandy and Hayley, Leisure Centre Funday, Brighton

Just a short note to thank you (and Joe) for your efforts on Sunday. Joe was an absolute star. The presentation of the equipment was immaculate including the set up. The children (and a few adults!) loved the activities and we will without doubt be using your services again. A truly professional job, executed perfectly.

Scott Cheesman, Corporate Family Funday, Kent

Thanks so much for all your help, it’s an absolute pleasure to deal with you! I submitted about 5 enquiries back in December, only 1 other company got back to me and that was after 2 weeks – so just so you know, no one has come close to your standards!!

Amy Francis, Staff BBQ, West London

Also, a big thank you to the guys on Sunday, the feedback was faultless.
