Public Events

Bella's Bouncies is proud to be certified for public events by The State of Illinois. Below is a summary of the law and how it pertains to party rental companies. Please contact Bella's Bouncies at 847-546-7000, or the State of IL Carnival Division at (217) 782-9347 if you have any further questions.

What events might be considered PUBLIC vs. PRIVATE? Any community event is public. And Fair or Festival is public. Most church events are public. Backyard parties are private. Most school events that take place for students only are private. A good rule of thumb is if it's an invite only event, it's most likely private. If anyone walking by the event could participate, then it's most likely public. These are only a few examples and by no way a completely inclusive list. Please call us if you have any questions. 

Every amusement ride and amusement attraction open to the public and operating in the State of Illinois must be inspected prior to initial operation and annually thereafter. To be inspected, every owner must first submit a completed application packet to the Department of Labor. Once a ride or attraction has been approved for operation by an inspector, a permit decal shall be affixed to each ride or attraction. Permits are valid for one calendar year (January 1st through December 31st).

At the time of inspection, owners are required to provide documentation that they have conducted a criminal history records check and sex offender registry check for all operators, attendants and assistants, provide documentation that they received proper training and have a substance abuse policy in place, which includes random drug testing.

Examples of amusement rides and attractions that require annual safety inspections prior to operation in the State of Illinois include, but are not limited to:

  • carnival rides
  • carousels
  • dry slides
  • haunted houses
  • go-kart tracks
  • ski lifts and rope tows
  • mechanical bulls
  • mobile climbing walls
  • power trampolines and eurobungees
  • ride simulators
  • trains
  • trams
  • inflatable attractions (i.e. moonwalks or bounce houses)
