Who doesn’t love a good birthday party! And parties mean party hosts who entertain your guests, keep them engaged and make the event memorable. So, be sure to thank the party host entertainer who has done an exceptional job at your child's party by tipping them generously. Tipping is a great way of showing gratitude. From entertaining your guests before jump time to setting up the party room and serving food and drinks, party hosts do a lot. If they made you happy with their service, feel free to tip and show them some love! But how much to tip a party host at a trampoline park? And, is there a way to decide if they did a good job? Let’s figure it all out.

When do you tip birthday party entertainers?

You should consider tipping your birthday party host entertainer if they provide exceptional service. While tipping is not always required, it is a great way to show appreciation for their hard work and dedication to making your celebration successful. Tipping party hosts, if you're a regular visitor, makes them familiar with you and gets you fabulous service every time you come in. 

Here are six key factors to consider when deciding whether or not to tip for birthday party.

  • Professionalism

Consider how the party hosts/entertainers handle themselves leading up to and during the party. Were they responsive and easy to work with? Did they arrive on time and were well-prepared?

  • Entertaining the kids

Did the party host/entertainer successfully keep the kids entertained? If they go above and beyond their call of duty and the children have a great time, consider a larger tip.

  • Size of the party

Larger parties typically require more work and effort from your party host, including setting up the party room, serving food and drinks, and keeping track of multiple groups of guests. 

  • Complexity of the event 

Requests for special arrangements or a complex setup for your trampoline park party require extra effort from your party host. These could be specific themes, decorations, multiple activities, or games. In such cases, it is recommended to consider tipping a higher amount to show appreciation for the extra effort.

  • Handling unexpected challenges 

Did the entertainer have to navigate any unexpected issues during the party? Consider tipping them more if they handled it with grace and professionalism, whether it was a fussy child or an unforeseen situation.

  • Would you hire them again? 

Finally, ask yourself if you would book this party host/entertainer again or recommend them to friends. If you were happy with their work and would use their services again, that's a good indication that they deserve a tip.

How much do you tip a party host?

It's always helpful to know what others are doing when it comes to tipping, and trampoline park party hosts are no exception. A typical tip for a party host at a trampoline park birthday party is between 10% and 20% of the total cost of the party. For example, if your party costs $200, a tip of $20-$40 would be appropriate. 

You can always adjust that amount based on how pleased you were with your host's efforts.
