The 50,000-square-foot bounce house will feature one of the longest inflatable indoor obstacle courses in the world, inflatable games, multiple bars, a 21+ lounge, movie theaters, concert venue and a finer-dining menu
May 04, 2023 – Lafayette, Colo. – Today Colorado entrepreneur James Hay-Arthur announces his next project. On May 25, Bounce Empire will open a 50,000-square-foot indoor bounce house theme park in Lafayette, Colo. With more than 50 attractions for guests of all ages, it will set a new record for the world’s largest indoor inflatable amusement park.
Bounce Empire’s signature attraction is a 30-foot inflatable “monster slide” Kraken that propels visitors at lightning-fast speeds. Similar inflatable structures include Triple Raptor, Twister Slide, High Voltage Grinder & Warped Wall and The Ultimate Wild One – one of the longest indoor inflatable obstacle courses in the world at 280 feet.
“Bounce Empire has thrown down the gauntlet. We will have over 55 jaw-dropping attractions that haven’t been seen by most of the public before,” said Hay-Arthur. “Everyone shares something in common when they walk through the door: They can’t decide what to do first. We expect it to take at least four visits to truly experience every facet of the space.
The expansive space will feature inflatable games, obstacle courses, multiple bars, a 21+ lounge, movie theaters, a 13-foot hydraulic concert stage and a finer dining “foothills fresh” menu, with details of each below:
Inflatable Games and Competitive Sports
For kids of all ages with a competitive streak, Bounce Empire has plenty to choose from. Among Bounce’s inflatable games are Viking Axe Throw, 21-foot-high Soccer Darts, King of the Mountains, and Air Racers. Competitive sports attractions include High Voltage Grinder & Warped Wall, Human-Sized Billiards and Ultimate Boxing.
One-of-a-Kind Elevated Stage
The centerpiece of Bounce Empire is a circular concert stage that can elevate to 13 feet high, thanks to a hydraulic lift system, which will house a variety of musical artists and performers. Surrounding the stage is a 360-degree JBL sound system, ceiling-mounted lighting fixtures, strobe lights and a smoke machine. All were installed by Nexus Audio, which provides production for large-scale events including Denver’s Global Dance Festival.
Rubbish Bar, Alpine Terrace and Themed Rooms
Overlooking the inflatables, Bounce Empire’s Rubbish Bar is the biggest of three refreshment areas for guests 21 and older and offers unmatched amenities. These include a full-service drink menu with seasonal cocktails, luxurious installations, medical-grade massage chairs, Rocky Mountain views from the outdoor Alpine Terrace and monitors connected to the venue’s 66 cameras so parents can watch their children from a distance. Bounce Empire also offers six themed rooms for group reservations.
Bounce Empire’s culinary focus is one of the biggest departures from typical amusement park experiences. Culinary Director Jorge Pedrianes, who previously worked at Forte Dei Marmi founded by two Michelin-starred chef Andrea Reitano, curated the antibiotic and hormone-free menu for Bison Bistro kitchen, which includes Colorado buffalo ribs, miso chicken skewers and ahi tuna bowls. One of the signature dishes is the “Flavor of the Rockies” featuring bison ribs, elk sausages, mint chimichurri and white chocolate prickly pear cheesecake.
Attractions for Younger Children
Bounce Empire’s Little Tikes area features bounce houses for children nine and under. These include a 15-foot Tiki Island, Monster Truck and “Star Wars”-inspired Millennium Falcon.
Commitment to Safety and Service
Every Bounce Empire attendee watches a safety video prior to entry. Each time they visit, they’re given a new pair of grippy socks to prevent slipping and falling. They also receive an RFID bracelet that grants them access to a locker, and it can be used for all onsite purchases. Staff members, “Bouncers,” keep watch to ensure all patrons’ safety, and our “Bouncierges” elevate experiences by delivering exceptional customer service with enthusiasm throughout the park.
Attendance at Bounce Empire will be $25/hour. However, as a special grand opening promotion, with every dollar spent at Bison Bistro, Rubbish Bar or any of the park’s other bars, guests will receive two minutes of free attendance time. For example, if guests spend $30 on food or drinks during 60 minutes onsite, the visit will be fully reimbursed.
