The Magic Castle bounce house by Blast Zone is their most popular inflatable. Blast Zone designed this castle themed inflatable bouncer for up to 3 kids under the age of 12 that weigh under 100 lbs each. The bright red, yellow and blue colors makes head turns once inflated.
The footprint of this bounce house is 8.5′ x 11′. Essentially it is 8.5′ x 8.5′ with the ramp/slide measuring 2.5′ x 2.5′. A safety zone of 15′ x 13′ is recommended by the manufacture. The bounce area for your kids to play in measures 6.5′ x 6.5′. To enter and exit the Magic Castle there is a ramp/slide entry. This makes entry and exit much easier for smaller children. The entire bounce houses is enclosed with a safety netting. The safety net can be sealed for safety by the velcro opening.
While kid bouncers are intended for kids up to 12 years old, Blast Zone recommends this inflatable for kids 3 to 8 years old. They are spot on with this recommendation. From a durability and construction stand point, this bounce house can hold up to 3 100 lbs kids under 12 years old, but this interior size makes this unit more suitable for smaller kids. It is important to note, that while this unit can hold up to 300 lbs, if you have a 50 lbs child, you do not want to exceed the number of users recommended, which in this case is three. In most cases, weight capacities will never be an issue with kid bounce houses, it is more user capacity. For safety reasons you do not want to many kids in any bouncer at one time.
