What we always discuss here at Play and Bounce is safety. Whomever you may rent a bounce house from always ask them how to safely operate it.
Bounce houses—what a gift. They’re the true stars of kids’ birthday parties (sorry, birthday children), inflated wonders that bring joy, laughter and eventual naps. They’re also slightly terrifying, as demonstrated by this jumper in California that was blown onto the highway this week by strong winds. The 9-year-old boy who was playing inside miraculously climbed out with just scrapes and scratches.
Just about every year, we see horrific videos of bounce houses floating away—at a soccer tournament, over a stretch of woods, and into power lines. The reason is physics. As explained in Wired: “Bouncy castles are, well, bouncy. As soon as they hit any sort of hump, they bound a bit into the air—and once they’re up, strong gusts can keep them there. Alternatively, they can start to tip, letting the wind get underneath to push from all sides.” READ MORE
