If you’re longing for those childhood days of jumping around in a huge bounce house, you’re in luck: What's being billed as the biggest one in the world is coming to South Florida.

This is the first time the three-story tall, 10,000 square foot bounce house will stop in South Florida, a spokesperson said. The giant attraction is part of The Big Bounce America tour, which is scheduled to make 60 stops across the country this year.

In South Florida, the tour will stop in Pinecrest Village and Burt Aaronson Regional Park in Boca Raton. The Boca tour is scheduled for March 16, 17 and 18, while the Pinecrest event is set for March 23, 24 and 25th.

The massive bounce house is packed with inflatable basketball hoops, a giant slide and plenty of “Instagram-able” objects, according to the official website. Apart from the main attraction, the tour features live music, confetti blasts and a surrounding entertainment area called “Bounce Village.” The event is an all-ages affair that includes sessions for adults, teens and toddlers.

Last year, The Big Bounce America made 15 stops with one stop in Tallahassee. Due to burgeoning popularity, the tour expanded to 60 cities this in 2018.

The inspiration for The Big Bounce America came when the founders attended a festival in Scotland, a spokesperson said. The vision for creating the largest bounce house in the world was sparked, and The Big Bounce America was born.

“Inside the bounce house we dreamt of giant slides, ball pits, basketball hoops and obstacle runs,” the website reads. “[…]We dreamt of DJs spinning from a stage in the middle of all this, of massive sound-systems, confetti blasts, beach balls and all manner of thrilling party games happening around us as we bounced. And we dreamt that it was big. Really, really big….”
