Bounce House Buying Guide 

Residential bounce houses are typically smaller in size and have a lower total weight capacity than commercial bounce houses but are a good investment and will save you money over renting in the end.    Choosing the right bounce house can be a tough decision.  There are many different sizes, themes, and features to consider.  To help make your decision easier, we’ve highlighted some important factors to think about when buying a bounce house for your home.

What to Look For in a Bounce House

There are a few main features to take into consideration when purchasing a bounce house for your home.   It goes without saying that you will want a quality product that will not only last, but also endure all your kids can throw at it. 

The information provided below highlights other features to focus on in order to make the correct purchase for your family.

Size

The first thing to consider when purchasing a bounce house is the amount of space you have available.  Not only should you choose a bounce house with dimensions that will fit your space, but most manufacturers suggest a 5 ft clearance in every direction for maximum safety. If you purchase a bounce house with a blower, you will also need that extra space (at least on one side) to connect the blower and air tube. 

Some bounce houses can be used both indoors and outdoors.  If you plan on using your bounce house indoors, be sure to pay close attention to the height dimension.  You also want to ensure your space is clear from obstructions such as fans or low hanging light fixtures which may become safety hazards.  

Weight Capacity

All bounce houses come with weight requirements so you will need to have an idea of how many kids you could have bouncing at one time.    The average weight limit for residential bounce houses is around 250 lbs with a maximum of 3 children bouncing at one time.  Smaller and larger options are available. 

Keep in mind, to get the most out of your money you’ll want something that your kids can grow into not out off.  If your kids are older, you may want to consider a larger, commercial grade bounce house.  Though these may cost more up front, many can hold upwards of 800 lbs and are therefore built to last longer than smaller non-commercial versions.   

Blower For Continuous Air Flow

All bounce houses should come with a blower to provide continuous air flow.  Bounce houses are designed to allow air to flow thru, so don’t be alarmed when air “leaks” through the seams.  Allowing the air to flow freely is what gives you the bounce you are looking for.   Different size bounce houses may require different size blowers to keep the structure inflated.  Therefore, its always best to purchase a bounce house that comes with its own blower. 

Special Features

Many bounce houses offer additional features for added entertainment.  The most common options include, slides, basketball hoops, obstacle course designs, and ball pit zones.  Bounce houses can also be themed based and come in the shape of a castle, sports arena, or jungle (just to name a few).  When choosing a feature or theme it’s important to consider what’s appropriate for your group, not only now but also in the future. 

Pay attention to the jumping area.  Many bounce houses that offer additional features often have smaller jumping areas.  Depending on your needs, this may or may not be a concern.  If you have children that are scared of heights you may want to double check that climbing walls or slides are an appropriate height for them.  Balls for ball pits are often not included and can be and get expensive depending on how many are needed.  These are all things to consider when looking at extra features to ensure you are choosing the right bounce house to fit your needs.
