The Big Bounce America is Coming to Frankenmuth

The World’s Biggest Bounce House is open for business Aug. 10-12.

Traveling bounce houses are all the rage these days, but only one attraction holds the title of The World’s Biggest Bounce House – The Big Bounce America

From Aug. 10-12, The Big Bounce America will be bringing its massive house and other spectacular bounce attractions to Frankenmuth River Place Shops. Inside the World’s Biggest Bounce House, you’ll find bouncy basketball courts, a giant slide into a ball pit and plenty more inflatable surprises. 

Other bounce-tastic attractions include an out-of-this-world Air Space zone filled with inflatable aliens, spaceships and moon craters; the Sport Slam competition zone; and an inflatable chill area for parents or anyone who needs to take a break from all the bouncy fun. 

Ready to head to Frankenmuth and bounce the day away? Here are our best tips for making the most out of your Big Bounce America experience. 

Quick details about The Big Bounce America

  • When: Aug.10-12, 2023
  • Address: Frankenmuth River Place Shops, 925 S. Main St., Frankenmuth
  • Cost: Tickets are $35 for a three-hour session. Spectators do not require a ticket.  
  • Parking: Big Bounce America attendees are able to park in the Frankenmuth River Place parking lots.

Tips for playing at Big Bounce America

  • A ticket is required to play. Save a few bucks by purchasing tickets online ahead of time.
  • Online tickets are sold as timed, three-hour reservation slots. Ticket holders will have 45 minutes to play in the World’s Biggest Bounce House. The remainder of their time can be spent on the other inflatable attractions. 
  • The Big Bounce America is an outdoor, rain-or-shine event. Apply sunscreen and dress in layers so you can adjust your clothing to the weather. 
  • Rental lockers will be available on a first come, first served basis. Lockers are $10 each. 
  • Children ages 3 and under must be accompanied by a paying parent or guardian. Parents of older children do not need a ticket if they do not plan to jump. 
  • Children of all ages can play together, but if your younger child prefers jumping with kids their own age, Toddler and Junior Sessions are available. 
  • Bouncing, jumping and sliding all afternoon is tiring! Bring water to stay hydrated. 
  • Socks must be worn at all times in the inflatables. Make sure all the jumpers in your group have a comfy pair of socks to wear — preferably ones with a bit of grip to avoid wipeouts on slippery surfaces. Grippy socks will be sold for $5 per pair. 
  • Get your money’s worth by showing up a few minutes before your session begins. Arriving late won’t stop you from joining in on the fun, but your session will not be extended. Showing up late to your session means you will miss out on jumping time.
