First it was all about the color runs. Now, bounce houses — yes, just like the colorful, inflated contraptions that parents frequently rent for their kids’ backyard birthday parties — for all ages have arrived as another hot recreation trend. Calling itself the “world’s largest bounce house ever created,” and topping out at 10,000 square feet with a height of 32 feet, the touring inflatable Big Bounce America house is coming to Spokane for three days of barefoot bouncing. The castle of air consists of obstacle courses, basketball courts, slides, ball pits and more. To keep everyone’s heart rates a-pumpin’, a live DJ booth, dance floor and other features contribute to the party-like atmosphere. Tickets can be purchased online for specific sessions (see website for times), which are separated by age groups to keep everyone safe.
Fri, Aug. 25 to Sun, Aug. 27; Fri from 3-7 pm, Sat-Sun from 8 am-6 pm • $15-$19; free sessions for ages 2 and under • Dwight Merkel Sports Complex • 5701 N. Assembly • thebigbounceamerica.ticketleap.com/spokane
