Instead of buying a trampoline for Christmas, spend your summer holidays at this incredible inflatable kingdom. The Big Bounce Australia is popping up at Flemington Racecourse from January 3-19, bringing three levels of bouncing fun to the city.
The inflatable theme park includes the Guinness World Record-certified largest-ever bounce house, which has giant slides, climbing towers, obstacle runs, basketball hoops and ball pits sprawled across 1,500 square metres of bouncy real estate. Things get wild in the very centre of this lavish air-filled palace, with a DJ pumping tunes that reverberate through the inflated halls while confetti cannons blast and beach balls fly around the party and game zone.
But it doesn’t stop there. The two other components of Big Bounce include a 300-metre inflated obstacle course with 50 challenges that’ll test the mightiest CrossFit warriors and a lofty space-themed wonderland. This dreamy ride is more about floating around and snapping sick pics than raging against the inflatable machine, and you can enjoy a calmer experience bouncing through three ball pits, climbing up an 18-metre-high maze, and shooting down the gigantic five-lane slippery slide.
Families and grown-up kids can enjoy all this action on their own terms at the kid-friendly sessions or adults-only events. The plan is to have a few food and drink vendors on-site for bouncing intermissions (be sure to let your tum settle) but jumpers are allowed to bring their own picnics as well.
Ticket prices vary based on age, but they give all bouncers unlimited access to the obstacle course and space-themed castle, as well as a designated time slot to leap around the world’s biggest bounce house.
