Foam parties are an excellent way for your company or group of friends to decompress, but what goes into having a foam party? Foam Daddy has your needs covered with this list of frequently asked questions about foam parties. To ensure you have a successful event, we’ve created this handy FAQ page.

What do I need to produce a successful foam party for my business?

The first (and most important) thing for a successful foam rental party is a foam machine and an excellent place to put it. The only other element you absolutely need for a successful foam party is people who want to have fun and get messy! You'll want to give your guests instructions about the dress code of your party — we recommend that your guests wear rubber-soled shoes and casual clothing or swimwear that they don't mind getting wet — as well as setting up a safe place for them to put their electronic devices (such as cell phones). See our list of foam party tips and tricks for more tips on having a foam rental party.

How difficult is it to operate a foam machine for a party?

The process of how to make foam for a foam party is simple, and we make it even easier for you! Our foam machines come with complete setup instruction videos that are easy to follow: simply run the machine until you have enough foam, and then turn it off. You can always turn it back on if you decide you want more foam later.

How can I ensure I never run out of foam party solution and make sure that my solution costs are affordable for large events?

The best way to avoid running out of solution for your foam party is to buy one of our foam party packages. These packages come with our top-quality foam machines, enough foam party solution for your entire party, and any accessories you need. We even deliver them directly to you, saving you the hassle of picking up and returning your foam machine!

Will I need any supplies for my foam party not supplied by the local rental company?

If your foam party is indoors, it's a good idea to have enough plastic tarp to cover the whole floor. You also need to have a hose and access to a GFCI electrical outlet. If you plan to have music at your foam party, you may also want to rent a sound system.

Where should we hold the foam party?

Hard surfaces such as a concrete patio area are ideal for an outdoor foam party. The concrete will be less slippery than grass, and any liquid will eventually evaporate on its own. You can also set out a plastic tarp to make a foam pit on the grass.

It would be best to place the foam machine on an easy-to-clean surface for indoor foam parties, such as tile or linoleum. Because the floor will get wet, it's best to avoid holding your foam party on a wood floor or carpeting.

How much do foam party machines cost?

The cost to buy or rent a foam machine varies based on your needs and the amount of solution you will require. We offer a wide variety of foam machines and foam machine packages to suit your company's specific needs.

Who should I call to get a quote for a foam party machine?

Foamdaddy is not only the foremost foam party rental company in the United States, but we deliver directly to you, making us the most convenient way to get foam for your party.

Why should my company invest in foam party machine equipment versus other attractions?

Foam parties are an unconventional way to make a splash with your guests! They'll certainly remember their experience at your foam party for years. Our all-inclusive packages make it easy to set up your party, unlike other attractions that may require multiple trips to set up and return equipment.

How messy is a foam party?

With a foam rental party, your guests will definitely get wet! Our foam solution naturally evaporates into the air if you have an outdoor foam party.

FOAM Machine Rental FAQ

Will the foam cause you to slip?

Foam is about as slippery as water, so it’s possible to slip if you’re on long grass or a smooth, glossy surface such as glazed tile. To prevent slipping, we recommend guests avoid running in foamy areas.

Will the floor get wet from the foam machine?

Since you need water to generate foam, you can expect the floor to get wet as the bubbles dissolve. The resulting liquid is easy to clean up and doesn’t have any lasting effects. If you’re hosting a foam party outside, any lingering liquid should eventually evaporate on its own.

How long does foam last?

When left alone, foam lasts several hours. However, once guests interact with it, the bubbles start to pop and break up. The more people play in the foam, the quicker it will dissolve.

How much foam can you get from a Foam Cannon Machine?

The Foam Cannon Machine is designed to cover a wide area, so the bubble stacks may not be extremely high. However, this machine makes just as much as other foam-generating equipment; it just distributes the amount differently.

Is the foam safe for contact with skin and eyes?

Our foam solution is non-toxic and environmentally friendly, so there shouldn’t be any irritation if it contacts your skin or eyes. Even kids should be fine playing in the bubbles.

What kind of events are best for foam machines?

You can use foam machines at a variety of events:

  • Birthday parties
  • Night clubs
  • Dance parties
  • Festivals
