Tickets and aged time sessions for Big Bounce America
With an eye toward safety, sessions are split by age. Older kids cannot attend with younger kids, but younger kids can always age up assuming that they are with a responsible party.
One ticket = one entry. Every person entering either the bounce house or the bounce village requires a ticket. Accompanying guardians, this means you! All children under five must be accompanied by a paying adult. Children 5 & up can enter the Juniors or Bigger Kids sessions with or without a parent.
What are the sessions?
Toddler Sessions are for children aged 3 and under accompanied by parents/carers. (FRIDAY only)
Junior Sessions are slower paced sessions aimed mainly at kids aged 7 and under.
Bigger Kids Sessions can be a bit more boisterous and are aimed at kids 15 & under.
Adult Sessions are for anyone aged 16+. Anyone aged 15 or under will not be admitted.
What happens inside the World's Biggest Bounce House?
Within the walls of the massive structure, there are several thematic zones with various activities. Look for big-air slam-dunk basketball hoops, inflatable jungle animals, an obstacle course, huge bouncy air beds, and a giant slide with ball pit. If that's not enough action, a DJ will be hosting games while playing kid-friendly party music.
Additional activities include a Ninja Run, Bounce Village, Monster Ball Pit, and a Lil' Bouncer.
