Do you miss bounce houses? There really aren’t that many opportunities to enjoy them as an adult who doesn’t want to crush children at birthday parties. Next week, though, the world’s largest bounce house is coming to town, and it’s aimed at grown-ups and kids. The Big Bounce America is kind of like a traveling carnival, but all the attractions are inflatable. There’s a giant bounce castle, an obstacle course, and a outer space-themed playground thing.
The tour comes to Skyline Ranch & Events Center in southern Dallas May 3-5 and May 10-12. You don’t have to worry about crushing children because there are separate sessions for little kids, big kids, families, and adults. You can book a one-hour time slot in the bounce castle, or spring for the unlimited access pass ($28 for adults), which gets you into all three blow-up attractions for three hours.
The bounce house, which holds a place in The Guinness Book of World Records, has a basketball court, a giant slide, ball pits, and a dance floor type area with a live DJ and lights. Is this bounce house also a nightclub (aptly named The Bounce House)? You decide.
The obstacle course is called The Giant because it’s more than 900 feet long with 50 obstacles from start to finish. It looks kind of like an apparatus that would be found on Ninja Warrior, but brighter and more kid-friendly.
The newest addition to The Big Bounce America is AirSPACE, an alien infested playground designed with Instagram in mind. It has a 60 foot tall maze, more slides, more ball pits, and colorful photo ops.
