How much would you tip?

So we are having my daughters 4th birthday party at a local bounce house. 1st hour we are in the bounce room & dont see our host yet.. But then we get 45 minutes in a private room where our host helps us monitor time & help serve cake. They also put up our decor & clean up afterward. So Im guessing they spend about 1hr total on our party (set up/time with us/cleanup).
So how much would you tip them?

  • A $50 tip for 1 hour is way too much, in my opinion. You are paying for the use of the room, etc. You don't tip of that. You should call and ask, it may be that a tip has already been included for the host.

  • I would figure the tip would be included in the price. Do you get a receipt at the end to sign?

  • Either it is included or 15% since they did a bad job

  • 16% is the minimum. Just double the tax from the bill. That's always the best way to do it.

  • Nothing! The Bounce House in Wichita was open a week before a 5 year was killed!

  • kansas that is soo sad.. we have been going to this place for 3 yrs & have never heard of any big problems at all.. If people follow the rules then no one should get hurt.
    Im sure in Kansas someone was not doing their job or someone was misusing what they where bouncing on..
