The Facts about Moonwalk Rentals in the State of Texas

The Texas Department of Insurance has determined by law that
inflatable devices are considered amusement rides and the
operators must carry insurance and have their inflatable units
inspected and registered annually. Please read below for
information from The Texas Department of Insurance (TDI)
regarding these new requirements or click here to visit their
website.

To legally operate in Texas, an amusement ride owner/operator
must file with TDI an insurance policy with certain minimum limits
for bodily injury for persons using the ride and an annual
amusement ride safety inspection certificate.  The inspection is
performed by an approved inspector of the insurance company.  
Rides meeting the requirements will be issued a TDI Amusement
Ride Compliance Sticker (similar to an automobile safety
inspection sticker), which will indicate the expiration date of the
inspection certificate.  The sticker should be affixed to a major
component of each ride in a location visible to the ride participants.

The amusement ride owner/operator is required to provide a
photocopy of the inspection certificate and the required insurance
policy to any sponsor, lessor, landowner or other person
responsible for amusement rides publicly used.

An amusement ride inspection certificate indicates the ride has met
the standards required by the manufacturer, insurer, or the
American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM).  Recognition
by the Department that the amusement ride has satisfied these
standards is not an endorsement by the Department or a
statement regarding the safe operation of the amusement ride.
