This particular trampoline is only the 20th sold in the United States and is currently available in Greencastle beginning April 3. Jumpers are strapped in with a harness and hoisted up before being released from 26 feet up in the air.
"We plan on doing a lot of small town festivals and air shows with this piece of equipment," said Susan Lorimer who owns Big Bounce Fun House Rentals with her husband Andy.
DePauw University has already booked the new bounce for events on their campus.
Big Bounce Fun House Rentals was established in 2006 by the couple. They wanted to create a fun alternative for children to have at birthday parties while creating a safe atmosphere for them.
The company receives updates from all around the world every day on the newest and latest equipment and safety standards.
Their company is fully insured and Sioto certified, which means that a safety certification class has been attended and passed. They also belong to IAAPA, which is a very prestigious affiliation in the entertainment industry.
Big Bounce has added other new items as well. They have foot brawlers, human bowling, Velcro walls and new obstacle courses.
"This is just some of the equipment. Of course we still have our famous 18-foot water slide, bounces and jousts. We also keep our cotton candy machines, snow cone machines and popcorn machines very busy," said Susan.
