Ditch the sneakers and find your favorite pair of socks—it's time to bounce.
Beginning this March, The Big Bounce America (also known as the largest bounce house in the world) will make pitstops across the country, and much to our delight, New York is on the list. The springs in our feet will certainly be working overtime, but we can't complain.
If you think this is your run-of-the-mill bouncy castle, you are sadly mistaken. The 20,000 square-foot bouncing paradise will feature basketball courts, a tremendous ball pit and an obstacle course to test out your skills—all while a DJ blasts your favorite tunes.
The idea for the inflatable fun town emerged after the success of the Big Bounce America's 2017 tour. However, the creators decided to take their ideas up a notch...and include adults this time around.
"We [produced] an event as part of a big musical festival and the organizers had created a small family section, which included a fairly standard bounce house," Grahame Ferguson, the brand's co-founder said in a statement. "When the kids weren’t using it, and nobody was looking, we snuck on and bounced around like were kids again. Then it dawned on us: What if we made a much bigger bounce house? What if we built the biggest one in the world? What if adults could bounce? What it had a DJ Booth, ball pits, foam pits, slides and more!?”
This what-if will become a reality beginning next month, and adult-only night sessions will provide an opportunity for the young at heart to get in on the action. From March until November, the fun will make its way from city to city, and we can't wait to see what's in store for kiddos (and adults, too).
