Tips for visiting The Big Bounce America

  • Purchase tickets in advance. This will guarantee entry at the time you want. There may be tickets available on the day of the event, but the tickets will cost more. If you are joining your children in the inflatables, you must purchase a ticket.
  • Littles need an adult with them. Ages 3 and under must have an adult with them in the session. Ages 4 and up can enter the junior session or bigger kids session with or without an adult.
  • Arrive early. Make sure you have plenty of time to arrive to your timed session, get your QR code scanned and receive your wristband.
  • There are weight/height restrictions. All attractions have a maximum weight limit of 245 pounds. The World’s Largest Bounce House has a maximum height limit of 7 feet 1 inch and all other attractions have a maximum height limit of 6 feet 4 inches. A minimum height limit of 3 feet is required for The Giant.
  • Socks must be worn at all times. You can also purchase gripper socks from them for $5
  • Lockers will be available. You can rent out a locker for $10 each if you need to store your belongings before going to bounce.
  • Wear slip-on shoes. You may want to bring slip-on shoes to wear so it’s easy to get your shoes on and off before going into the inflatables. There will be a “shoe zone” to leave your shoes in before entering.
  • Bring extra clothes. Bring a change of clothes (including socks) because you may get wet inside some of the inflatables.
  • Rain or shine event. The event will still go on if it is raining lightly. If the event is rescheduled or canceled, you will be entitled to a transfer to a different date or get a refund.
  • Pack sunscreen and water. The event is fully outdoors so make sure to wear sunscreen and bring a water bottle to stay hydrated.
