Indoor or Outdoor Bouncy Houses: What You Need to Know

When it comes to bouncy houses, most people think of the outdoors. But did you know that you can also set up an indoor bouncy house that's just as much fun? There are several advantages to installing a bouncy house indoors, such as not having to worry about tamping down the grass or ruining it, and being able to use the bouncy house regardless of the outside climate. Smaller personal inflatable houses can fit in a game room, while larger commercial bouncy houses will need a large gym or auditorium. When setting up an indoor bouncy house, it's important to make sure the ceiling is high enough and the room is large enough to fit the bouncy house and sandbag anchors. You don't have to worry about wind, and the size of the bouncy house that fits inside or in the garage is less likely to tip over.

Measure the area where you want to place the bouncy house and make sure it's the right size for children. An electrical outlet will be needed and, preferably, away from the entrance of the bouncy house so that there are no accidents with children tripping over the cables. It is recommended to install a bouncy house on completely level ground, but it can still operate with a slope of up to 5 percent. If you're farther than an extension cable can reach, you'll also need a generator, so make sure you have the right size generator for the bouncy house. Place a tarp under the inflatable house to avoid rubbing and wear against the concrete. If your child likes going to playgrounds or entering bouncy houses, you'll find that indoor bouncy houses are very comfortable for families with children who want something new and different to play with.

With an indoor bouncy house, you don't have to worry about rain, snow, or gusts of wind. When you're finished using it, just disconnect it and it will deflate.
