Bounce Your Heart Out at The Big Bounce America Tour

My legs still hurt but it was worth it.

Bounce houses are cool, but have you ever experienced a giant bounce house? How about the biggest bounce house in the world?

Boasting an incredible 25,000 square feet of inflatable fun – from bounce mansions and slides to an obstacle course that makes you feel like Mario, ball pits within ball pits, a bounce DJ and even a bubble blasting bouncer– we believe The Big Bounce America when they tell us that they have the largest bounce house in existence. Having now experienced it, we are sure of it. 

Look at that giant bounce house!

An incredible festival of brightly colored bouncers straight out of a child’s imagination, one can’t help but wonder how an event like this came about. Thankfully, Cammy Craig, Co-CEO of XL Event Lab creator of The Big Bounce America Tour, let us pick their beautiful brain a bit to learn what it takes to conceptualize and create such a fantastical event. 

“The inspiration back in 2017 was to initially create an inflatable big enough for the whole family to have fun on, not just kids. There was only one bounce house back then, but we very quickly grew the event by designing more bouncers to create an over-the-top, daily festival-like experience.”

The Big Bounce America Tour continues to grow, as Craig shares that “for the 2024 tour, we added the OctoBlast attraction, which has giant foam cannons inside and a live DJ! It has been extremely popular with every guest, especially in the warmer weather! We also expanded the World’s Biggest Bounce House this year. IT used to be 16,000 sq. ft., and now it is a whopping 24,000 sq. ft.! We are always designing new inflatables for the tour, and we are currently working on an exciting new zone that will launch in 2025!”

If you’re wondering where to buy bounce houses like these, you’re out of luck–they’re one-of-a-kind. Every attraction at The Big Bounce America event is designed from scratch by their own team, which is then manufactured by their partners. It is a true dream-to-reality operation, and just about the coolest job we can imagine. Out of all the bounce houses they’ve brought to life, which is the team’s favorite? 

“My favorite is the World’s Biggest Bounce House, as I love seeing the kids having a full-on dance party as our resident DJ spins tracks from a custom-built stage at the center of this bouncer,” answers Craig. “We also have ball pits, climbing towers, basketball hoops, and giant slides inside the bounce house. Anything you could imagine being in a bounce house is inside this massive bouncer!”

Babies love it!

We can attest to Craig’s promise, in fact, the World’s Biggest Bounce House is our family’s favorite as well. 

Tickets and times for each stop on the tour vary by age to ensure everyone has fun while safely bouncing. Whether you’re going with your toddler, your teenager, your family or your friends, there’s ticket perfect for you. (Kid-free adult sessions are a great way to blow-off steam!) 

As the mom of three young kids–ages one (pictured above), five and six–I chose the Junior Session (suitable for ages seven and younger) allowing us all to bounce together. Everyone in our group had tons of fun, and mom and dad enjoyed a full-body workout as well. 

“My advice for anyone who has not been before is to be ready for a fun-filled workout! You certainly will not need to go to the gym afterward,” laughs Craig. 

Touring with bounce houses as big as these is no easy task, but it’s a labor of love. 

“We need more fun in the world, and what better to do that than by giving kids, and kids at heart, the freedom to bounce at this large of a scale,’ says Craig. 

“Our bounce houses provide kids with  a safe environment to let out all their energy and play to their fullest extent without worry. The same can be said for adults who come to The Big Bounce America event. Due to the size of our bouncers, even adults can attend the event during their own session and get in touch with their inner child by kicking their sneakers off and hopping into our massive bounce houses.” 

The Big Bounce America is truly for everyone. Big or small. Young or old. A ticket to bounce is like a ticket back in time, when having fun was your job and childlike wonder was your lens. As advocates of joyful living, we cannot recommend it enough.
