When the world’s biggest bounce house comes within driving distance of Northern Virginia, you need to make it a point to go. And this year, The Big Bounce America, the biggest touring inflatable event in the world, is making its way to Maryland this spring.
The inflatable extravaganza runs from May 20 to June 11 at Rosecroft Raceway in Fort Washington, Maryland. With sessions for toddlers, juniors, bigger kids, and adults, there is no age limit for bouncing. Tickets for all sessions include three hours of access to the event, including a timedentry to The World’s Biggest Bounce Houseand unlimited access to Sport Slam, The Giant, and airSPACE.
The Guinness-certified World’s Biggest Bounce House covers 16,000 square feet; within it, you’ll find huge slides, ball pits, climbing towers, and basketball hoops. And for those longing for the perfect Instagram post, the space will feature oversized characters of various colors, shapes, and sizes to make your feed pop.
The party starts at the center of the bounce house, where there’s a customized stage with a DJ. Throughout the day, the DJ will host a variety of games and competitions, and play age-appropriate music depending on which session you sign up for.
If you still have energy after you make it through the bounce house, there are even more inflatable activities to enjoy, including Sport Slam, The Giant, and airSPACE.
Sport Slam will bring out your inner athlete. With climbing zones, goals, hoops, volleyball, and a “battle zone” (imagine an American Gladiators-esque game where you try to knock your opponent off their podium), guests can fill their day with action-packed games.
The Giant is for all those aspiring ninja warriors. With more than 50 obstacles, the 900-foot-long inflatable course will challenge your agility and balance, but reward you with a trip down a giant monster slide as you cross the finish line.
Those obsessed with outer space will want to check out airSPACE. The celestial-themed area includes two parts:a giant five-lane slide and a 25-foot-tall alien-themed inflatable with three separate ball pits.
Tickets start at $22 for the toddler session (ages 3 and under), $35 for the junior session (ages 7 and under) and bigger kid session (ages 15 and under), and $41 for the adults-only session (ages 16 and older). Parents attending the junior or bigger kids sessions who are only spectating are allowed to enter for free.
