The world's largest bounce house will be bigger and better in 2020!

UPDATE: Currently, the Big Bounce America tour is on pause. Check back for updates or visit the event's website for more details. 

2020 is going to be an exciting year for New Yorkers—a record-breaking one, in fact. 

In a few months, Big Bounce America—the largest attraction of its kind in the worldwill return Aviator Sports (currently the home of those epic ice bumper cars), and it's very possible we might've already set aside a clean pair of socks for the occasion. (Get tickets for the July 18–19, 25–26 event online!)

Trips to trampoline parks and bounce houses are of the utmost importance, so you'll want to keep your eyes peeled for this jumping extravaganza. The 2019 lineup packed in the excitement thanks to new features: The Bouncer a massive, multi-colored castle complete with inflatable basketball hoops, slides and a ball pit; The Giant, a 900-foot inflatable obstacle course; and airSPACE, an interactive, intergalactic jumping adventure fit for an alien thanks to spaceships, moon craters and other-worldly features.  

As much as we can't wait for those to make a comeback, we're particularly excited about what awaits in 2020: SportSlam. This new addition is every athlete and jumping bean's dream. Big Bounce referees will be on hand to help families as they go head-to-head trying to claim victory over goals, nets and hoops. The massive, multi-colored bounce house just screams "Go team" don't you think?
