Frequently Asked Questions

How much time does it take to set up and secure the Bubble tent/ Giant Snow Globe?

The set up is very easily occomplished with 2 people and can be done in 20-30 minutes from start to finish.


How does the Bubble Tent/ Giant Snow Globes stay inflated and what happens if the blower stops working?

Our Bubble Tent/ Life Size Snow Globes use a constant air blowing system that mantains a static pressure, which enables the tent to keep its shape. 

Should the air inflations system stop working,you will have several minutes to get out of the Bubble tent before it would collapse. Each unit comes with an Entryway Pole System that provides support and safety. Even if the tent were to deflate the entry system remains erected and serves an escape route.

Winter Weather Conditions 

We don’t recommend using the bubble tent in the winter months or in temperatures under 32 f, or -0 c. Usage is entirely up to the owner(s) discretion. Remove all snow from the dome once it begins to get thick, as the weight of the snow can cause the tent to collapse if left unattended. You can use a small flame resistant portable heater in the tent to bring it to try to bring it to room temperature (under the discretion of the owner). Never fold, unfold or disrupt the placement of this unit in those conditions, otherwise you risk damaging your unit(s).


Rainy Weather

If there are heavy rains or if it is prone to rain for 2 days or more in a row, the dome(s) can be used in the rain at the discretion of the owner(s). We don’t recommend using the tent in the rain due to the possibility of leaking.

Our tents are water-resistant. Our fabrics are coated with a finish that makes them impervious to water, but not entirely waterproof. 

With extended exposure to water or heavy rain, water can bead up on or under the fabric. This can lead to droplets making their way through the fabric, particularly on or around seams where sewing needles have punctured the material in the fabrication process. You can use an outdoor waterproofing spray along the seams to help prevent any leaking. 

*Before attempting this please get instructions from the main office first, contact us.

If your tent structure is deflated for some time with water on top of it, it can cause a milky white effect to happen. Inflate your bubble hut tent in the sunlight and let it sit for a fews days and the milky white will disappear.
