If ever a bounce house deserved the lesser-used title of bouncy castle, it's this one.

Whatever you want to call it, a 10,000-square-foot inflatable attraction that's touring the nation billed as the "world's largest bounce house" will soon arrive in Pasco County.

Big Bounce America stops at Keystone Park in Odessa, March 9 to 11.  

From the Big Bounce America website:

"We had a dream ... of giant slides, ball pits, basketball hoops and obstacle runs. We dreamt of massive inflatable animals among massive inflatable palm trees with inflatable trucks, boats and climbing frames all contained within the walls of our candy-colored castle."

The family-friendly event isn't just for kids. There will be separate bounce sessions for toddlers (3 and under), juniors (7 and under), bigger kids (8 to 15) and adults only, limited to ages 16 and up.

The massive bounce house will be surrounded by a "bounce village" with food vendors, more inflatable attractions and restrooms.

After leaving Odessa the Big Bounce America will make stops in Boca Raton, Miami, Orlando and Jacksonville before leaving the state.

Tickets, which range from $9 to $25, are on sale at
