South Florida is all about the family and nothing brings the family together like a good party. The problem is that the South Florida landscape is flooded with a myriad of party rental houses and the number one complaint is that they are always late. That’s why this list spotlights companies with a good track record, quality service and tons of variety featuring everything from bounce houses to mechanical bulls. You’re guaranteed a perfect party.

South Florida Bounce and Slide
Deerfield Beach, FL 33442
(561) 245-7100

When people attend parties, they are always looking to be impressed. If you order from South Florida Bounce and Slide, that’s a guarantee. It offers bounce houses, water slides, a mobile arcade featuring old school games like Donkey Kong, food machines, dunk tanks, a mechanical bull or even a mechanical surfer, which makes sense since South Florida isn’t really a surfing destination. The Boca Raton location even lays claim to the largest waterslide in South Florida called “The Hulk” and Donald Trump once rented it for his Mar-A-Lago mega mansion. You might pay a pretty penny but the cost of this fun is worth every cent.
