more bounce for the ounce
World's largest bounce house springs into Houston with space, sports, and ninja-type fun
Houstonians ready to jump around this weekend are in luck, as a Guinness -certified tour springs into town for some bouncy fun. The Big Bounce America returns to the Houston area for weekend activities starting Saturday, November 12 and running through Sunday, November 26 at Katy Mills Mall.
Boasting the quite literally — and quite perfectly titled — The World’s Largest Bounce House, at a mammoth and record-holding 16,000 square feet, the touring attraction also includes a new Sport Slam featuring a customized sports arena; an obstacle course called The Giant that spans more than 900 feet; and a space-themed wonderland called airSPACE, perfect for Space City hoppers.
Tickets start at $19 and can be found online. Special all-access tickets feature a three-hour pass to the event, including a timed session on The World’s Largest Bounce House, plus unlimited access to Sport Slam, The Giant, and airSPACE.
Here’s a little more about where to kick off those shoes and get more bounce for the ounce.
The World’s Largest Bounce House
Standing 32 feet at its highest point and spanning more than 16,000 square feet, this aired-up juggernaut includes giant slides, ball pits, climbing towers, and basketball hoops, all decked out with oversized characters for those picture-perfect Instagram moments. On center stage, a DJ hosts games, competitions, and spins music for each age group.
New for 2022, fans can get their game on at Sport Slam, which features goals, nets, hoops, and balls, climbing zone, and a battle zone where contestants battle to see who can stay on the podium longest.
Aimed at Ninja Warrior wannabes, this massive course dares athletes with 50 different courses and a grand finale monster slide.
Hopping astronauts will encounter (friendly) aliens, spaceships, moon craters, and a five-lane slide. Three ball pits and a 25-foot inflatable alien await in the center of the cosmic action.
-----The Big Bounce America runs weekends from Saturday, November 12 through Sunday, November 26 at Katy Mills Mall, 5000 Katy Mills Cir. For a full schedule, tickets, and more information, visit the official website.
