We'll answer some of your questions on this page.

Bouncy Castle Hire - where did it all start?

Firstly let us begin by listing a few of the common names you'll hear for a bouncy castle. Jump house, bounce house, moon walk, moon bounce, boingalow, inflatable castle, jumping castle amongst many others. The Spanish term 'Brinca Brinca' is an interesting term for a bouncy castle as it translates to simply 'Jump Jump'. We love that, so simple.

Anyway, back to the where it all started. Many moons ago, way before I was born, back in 1959 when dense fog brought chaos to the UK (we've moved on loads since, now it's snow!), the first ever inflatable bouncy castle was invented. John Scurlock from Shreveport, Louisiana is the main credited with the invention. Mr Scurlock was experimenting with inflatable covers for tennis courts when he realised his employees were spending more time bouncing on the covers than manufacturing them! John was a mechanical engineer and loved physics. He began inventing many of the inflatable products you see today or at least the base concept. He was also the mastermind behind the safety air cushion used by fire and rescue departments to catch people from burning buildings or heights.

We cover a range of events from private hires for birthday parties, wedding receptions, christenings etc to corporate fun days, promotional events, school fun days, community events and fun days and much more.

Bouncy castles can bring fun to any event. Since the original bouncy castle, other variations of inflatables have emerged. We now have inflatable obstacle courses, disco domes, inflatable slides, soft play, huge inflatable structures, games and lots more. It's crazy to think how many fun and entertaining games and activities have now been created in an inflatable version.
