Giant bouncy castle for adults opens in London for three days only

When she's not writing, Claire Gillespie can most often be found wiping snotty noses, picking up Lego, taking photos of her cat or doing headstands.

'Bouncingham Castle' lets grown-ups pretend to be kids on a huge bouncy castle

From SheKnows UK

I know I'm not the only one who has an uncontrollable urge to kick off my shoes and jump on the bouncy castle at every kids' party I go to.

There definitely shouldn't be an upper age limit when it comes to enormous inflatable structures but, sadly, our society all too often deems it inappropriate if an adult joins in the bouncing action. (And I fully accept this because bouncing on top of your child's classmates is a sure-fire way to alienate them and their parents.) 

Well, move over kiddos, because Bouncingham Castle has arrived in London and it's strictly for the grown-ups.

I don't live in London so I can only hope and pray that this will take off and make its way north of the border.

For those of you lucky enough to be in the capital over the next two days you'd be crazy not to take advantage of the chance to experience the seven-metre high, illuminated, sound-emitting, raspberry-scented bouncy extravaganza.

It's been installed on the city's South Bank to celebrate the launch of Candy Crush Jelly Saga and is open to all members of the public over the age of 16 today (10 a.m. to 8 p.m.) and tomorrow, March 5, (10 a.m. to 6 p.m.).

It's free to bounce and participants will be encouraged to compete with each other, with prizes awarded for the best bouncing.

Find the Bouncingham Castle at 2 More London Place, The Riverside, SE1 2JP, from March 3 to 5.
