20,000-square-foot bounce house coming to Colorado next weekend

COLORADO -

The Big Bounce America is the self-proclaimed biggest bounce house in America, and it will be making its way to Colorado next weekend. 

The 20,000-square-foot attraction caters to both kids and adults. The bounce house features an obstacle course, basketball courts, a ball pit, and even a DJ.

After recent stops in South Carolina and San Jose, California, the huge attraction will come to Lone Tree on May 25th for Memorial Day weekend.

During recent years, the safety of bounce houses has come under scrutiny. According to the Child Injury Prevention Alliance (CIPA), the number of bounce house related injuries in the U.S. has risen dramatically in the last 20 years. According to CIPA, these injuries now equal more than 30 children per day, or one child every 45 minutes.

Several years ago, a bounce house with two children inside became airborne in Littleton, and blew about 300 feet.

A spokesperson with The Big Bounce America told Denver NBC affiliate KUSA that they take precautions so incidents like the one in Littleton don't happen again. The company will cancel event in instances of inclement weather like rain and wind.

"The event is staffed with marshals and trained crew members, wearing brightly colored safety vests that are positioned throughout the inflatable," a spokesperson for the company said. "We want to ensure that everyone participates in a responsible manner while enjoying the party atmosphere."

Each play session on the bounce house also groups similarly aged people together to avoid injuries.

The bounce house will arrive in Lone Tree on May 25th and stay through the weekend.
