Picking The Right Inflatable For Your Age Group
2 years and under – Most inflatable safety experts agree that children of this age should not be on inflatables and they really are not made for this age group either.
3-4 years – Most children in this group are happy with bounce houses. When you rent a bounce house for this group, make sure to reserve a bounce house that is at least 13’ wide and 13’ deep. This will allow more children in the bounce house at a time. Kids in this age range can be sometimes scared of large inflatables like giant slides or water slides.
5-10 years – Children in this age group are looking for something a little larger than a regular bounce house. A great option for these kids would be an inflatable combo bouncer. Combos combine a bounce house and a slide all into one unit. These inflatables are larger than a bounce house and allow kids to do more than just bounce. This group also loves water slides during the summer time and interactive games possibly during the cooler months. They may not yet be ready for jousting, boxing, or bungee runs however, an obstacle course is something they could have fun in as well.
11-18 years old: This age group is the most difficult to plan for a party. This group is past the age for bounce houses. They want something more interactive like a slip-n-slide or larger water slide. Interactive game are also perfect for them. The most popular inflatable games amongst this group are the Big Baller, jousts, bungee runs, and bouncy boxing. These kids want to compete against each other and embarrass their friends in competition. The interactive inflatables are perfect for this!
Adults – Adults like all inflatables. Most commercial bounce houses can handle adult weight. Other great inflatables for adults are mechanical bulls, big baller, meltdown, jousts, bungee runs, and obstacle courses. The possibilities for inflatable fun with adults is really endless!
