Big and bouncy inflatable touring attraction rolls into Chicago

The Big Bounce America stops in Chicago.

What touring attraction is 32 ft. tall, holds its own DJ and goes “Boing?” Why, the world’s biggest bounce house, of course! Guinness-certified as the world’s largest bounce house, The Big Bounce America rolls into Chicago July 22-24 and 29-31 at Busse Forest Park.

Sitting at a tidy 16,000 square feet, the bouncy goliath holds four newly added inflatable attractions including a customized sports arena, a 900 foot-long "ninja-warrior" style obstacle course and a space-themed wonderland dubbed “airSPACE.”

Inside the squishy monstrosity, kids of all ages can navigate giant slides, ball pits, climbing towers and basketball hoops and meet over-sized characters of various colors, shapes and sizes who are happy to pose for selfies. At the center of it all is a custom-built stage where a traveling DJ hosts games, competitions and family-friendly playlists tailored to various age groups.

Tickets, starting at $19, can be purchased online and cover a three-hour pass which includes a timed session on the big bounce house and unlimited access to the sports arena, obstacle course and airspace.
