Bounce House Types

Have fun, play safe

Bounce houses and other inflatable structures have been given names for marketing purposes, that coincide with what children do in these structures.

The names include:

  • Bounce House
  • Astrojump
  • Moon Bounce
  • Moonwalk
  • Spacewalk
  • Jolly Jump

The inflatable structures may be referred to in Spanish as Brinca Brinca or Jump Jump. In Los Angeles, Southern California, a popular name for the inflatable structures is “closed inflatable trampoline or CTI.”  Inflatable structures have become extremely popular, and companies manufacturing the inflatables have made them more enticing children with slides, water slides, games, and obstacle courses.

These inflatable structures are easy for the rental industry, with a product that is easy to transport, store and are popular items for many events.

Autistic and impaired children enjoy the fun they can have in these inflatable structures. However, no studies exist proving they may have some therapeutic value for children with sensory impairments.

How are the Inflatable Structures Made?

Generally, the manufacturing materials for bounce houses consist of thick PVC, vinyl, and nylon. And typically, these structures are inflated with electric or a fuel-powered blower. And some require a fan with a higher than the standard output of electrical power to keep the large, unwieldy structure raised.

But this fan is usually around two horsepower. So in smaller houses, a tiny puncture will not be a significant problem, since it has constant inflation of the material.

Also, most of these structures require air continuously pumped in to keep in inflated. But sometimes, so much air escapes through fissures in the plastic material, that a partial deflating occurs that is unsafe for humans. Mostly this happens with the cheaper structures that are manufactured for home purchase, rather than used for rental purposes.

But the construction varies from country to country. And in the United States, the structure is generally supposed to be supported by inflatable columns and sides enclosed with netting for proper adult or operator supervision. The UK and Australia call their bouncy houses, “castles.” And those commonwealth countries have regulations requiring fully inflated walls on three sides.

Plus, the structure’s open front must be surrounded by foam crash mats to protect children from harm if they fall or jump out of the inflatable structure. Smart move!
