The Big Bounce – World’s Largest Inflatable Theme Park coming to Adelaide
Big Bounce have announced they’re bringing the World’s Biggest Bounce House (it’s Guinness World Record certified), an incredible 300 metre long inflatable obstacle course AND a three part space-themed wonderland to five Australian cities for their Summer 2020 Tour – and Adelaide is included!
The Big Bounce Australia team have created an action-packed day out, offering different sessions throughout the day which are designed to cater for all ages, with some of the most unique and exciting custom-built inflatable attractions ever imagined.
The World’s Biggest Bounce House
Covering a whopping area of over 1,500 square metres and with some sections reaching over 10 metres tall, this massive bounce house has been certified by Guinness as the world’s biggest… its HUGE!
Inside the bounce house you’ll find a range of various zones, each with its own unique theme and activity-based entertainment. From giant slides, obstacle runs, ball pits, climbing towers and basketball hoops to fun, friendly over-sized inflatable characters of various colours shapes, there’s guaranteed never to be a dull moment inside The World’s Biggest Bounce House.
But the party doesn’t stop there. At the very centre of the Bounce House you’ll find a custom-built stage where the resident DJ turns up the party vibe. With a massive sound system, music (tailored to each age group), confetti cannons, beach balls, as well as fun games, competitions and giveaways – this is definitely where the party’s at.
Sessions are organised by age; ranging from tiny tots to adult-only sessions.
This one’s for all the aspiring ninja warriors! The Giant is one of The Big Bounce’s most popular attractions and it’s easy to see why. This beast is over 300 metres in length and has 50 inflatable obstacles to overcome. From making your way across the giant red balls, crawling through the rainbow spirals or navigating the zone of inflatable giants, you’ll certainly need to catch your breath as you make your way down the grand finale monster slide.
One thing’s for sure, whether you’re looking to challenge your mates or simply bounce your way through some incredible rainbow landscape, The Giant is not to be missed!
airSPACE is a super-Instagrammable space-themed wonderland filled with friendly aliens, spaceships, moon craters and lots, lots more! Get some amazing action shots on the gigantic 5-lane slide, defy gravity in all three of airSPACE’s ball pits or try and reach the 8-metre-tall alien at the centre of the 18-metre-tall maze.
For a totally immersive experience that’s out of this world, look no further than airSPACE!
Play & Go Review of The Big Bounce
Sunday 16 February 2020
We checked out The Big Bounce Australia today and it really is HUGE! It’s the world’s biggest inflatable theme park and the very long 300 metre obstacle course certainly was a workout.
– The Castle is a big party bouncy castle with a DJ spinning tunes, bubbles, big balls and activities. You get allocated a 45 minute time slot for this so it doesn’t get overcrowded.
– Slides and ball pits add to the fun.
– On the obstacle course, you can choose to climb over some mounds or go around them, so can make it harder or easier for yourself to suit all abilities.
– Socks are necessary on the inflatables – wear your Bounce or Latitude ones for grip or you can buy theirs. I wore normal socks and it was fine but grippy ones would be less slippery.
– Free water bubblers for drinking available.
– Separate sessions for different age groups makes it safer for everyone, including an adults only one. (We attended the Bigger Kids session for 15 years & under).
– You can set up a picnic and bring your own food and drinks, table & chairs. We saw a family do a birthday party. Just get there early if you want to set up under one of the large shade tents.
– Car parking beside the event (off Sir Donald Bradman Drive) is $17. There is some parking on West Terrace and surrounding streets (just check signage).
– It’s free entry for spectators. You don’t need to pay for a ticket if you’re not going on the inflatables yourself.

About The Big Bounce
The Big Bounce founders, Cameron Craig and Grahame Ferguson, got the idea for The Big Bounce while working together at a music festival in the UK. Whilst there were some family attractions there, including the usual type of kids’ jumping castle, they watched bored parents mill around while their children had fun jumping and bouncing.
In a stroke of genius, Cameron and Grahame decided it would be quite cool to make a jumping castle big enough for Mum and Dad to play on with the kids … and that’s where The Big Bounce started.
Cameron and Grahame started by hosting just 15 events in 2017 but that number quickly grew to 52 in 2018, and in 2019, they hosted over 70 events across the world and incorporated the brand-new attractions, airSPACE and The Giant.
Now, they’ve decided to bring The Big Bounce to Australia. Why here? Simple! Aussies love a good time and as Cameron explains, ‘This event is all about having fun, so we wanted to bring it to the people who live in one of the most fun places on Earth!’
By session type:
Toddler Sessions – aged 3 and under $29pp
Junior Sessions – aged 7 and under $45pp
Bigger Kids Sessions – aged 15 and under $45pp
Adult Only Sessions – aged 16+ $55pp
The entry fee allows three hours of unlimited access to The Giant and airSPACE plus a timed slot for the World’s Biggest Bounce House within your three hours.
It’s free for parents to attend the event with their children, however parents who would also like to enter the inflatable attractions will need a separate ticket. Parents must accompany children in the Toddler Sessions with a separate ticket.
