Trix are for kids, but inflatables are for everybody. While inflatables have long been considered a form of entertainment for children, they didn’t start out that way.
In fact, the idea for them occurred because adults were jumping on inflatable tennis court covers. When first produced, they catered to adults at least as much as to children. And let’s be honest, most adults have felt just a twinge of jealousy watching their kids bouncing to their hearts’ content.
What, exactly, makes inflatables such a good idea for adults as well as kids? And when should grown ups enjoy the bouncy fun of inflatable entertainment? Here are a few ideas.
Inflatables are fun.
Let’s start with the obvious answer. Adults can and should use inflatables because inflatables are fun. They are so much fun, in fact, that workers making inflatable tennis court covers just could not resist: They had to start bouncing on the covers. Thus was the idea for the inflatable born.
You have to admit, watching carefree children boing all over a bounce house makes you wish you could participate, too. The temporary freedom from gravity, the unpredictability, the soft landing that lets you start all over all create a unique way to relax and enjoyayourself.
Since fun doesn’t have to be limited to childhood, we here at Big Bounce Fun House Rentals recommend embracing this fun as an adult. We promise, it is every bit as enjoyable as it looks, no matter what your age.
Inflatables are more than bounce houses.
If you have ever been at a kids’ event that included inflatables, it’s no wonder you left thinking that they are just for kids. Toddler bounce houses don’t even have room for adults.
Luckily for you, inflatables are more than toddler bounce houses (though, you can and should rent those for the smallest kids at your event). They are definitely more than the toddler houses. In fact, they do not have to be houses at all. Consider, for example, our interactive hoops game or our interactive ax throwing game. No houses involved. Just lots of inflatable, bouncy, entertainment.
If you want even more inflatable fun without the house, we here at Big Bounce Fun House Rentals have lots of options. Embrace our slides (with or without water); a monster truck, and even a water cannon. With so many options, there is sure to be one to please any grown up crowd.
Inflatables can build team spirit.
Maybe you agree: Inflatables can be fun for adults. You, however, have a company picnic or team building event to plan. Surely inflatables will never work in the corporate world. Business suits and high heels just do not mix with bouncy structures and slides.
You might want to think again. While the business suits and high heels should probably stay home, the corporate team can definitely don some casual clothes and benefit from some inflatables fun.
In fact, inflatables might just be what you need to build team spirit and improve morale. Not everyone wants to make small talk and play ice breakers at the team picnic, but most people will find themselves connecting with coworkers on a race down an 18-footbalide or a bungee competition.
Once you have done boxing and human bowling with someone, it becomes easier to finish projects alongside them as well. Turn interactive inflatables into team games and relay races, and watch team spirit grow. Inflatables do have a place in the corporate world, after all.
Inflatables welcome all skill levels.
Here is the thing with most entertainment options for adults: Not everyone can participate. Not everyone bowls well (Darn those gutter balls). Not everyone is athletic, so sports can be boring or frustrating. Some people hate drinking, and so on.
Inflatables, however, are hard to hate and very difficult to do wrong. After all, falling down and looking silly is usually part of the fun. This means that inflatables are an excellent choice for adults of all preferences and skill levels. Sliding down an 18-foot slide requires nothing but courage. Throwing an axe is safe because the ax bounces if you miss. The Hungry Hippo Chowdown is meant to be silly fun. There is no shame, embarrassment, or failure to keep anyone from enjoying the fun of inflatables.
Inflatables are not just for kids. They offer way too much fun to be limited to the under-18 crowd. With a wide array of options from which to choose, a unique ability to build team spirit, and an ability to cater to all skill levels and preferences, inflatables can and should be used by adults too.
