Better Bounce was established over 25 years ago making it one of the longest established names in the industry. We have sold over 10,000 products shipped to countries on every continent around the world and have a famous 1,2,3 guarantee on all of our products.

Better Bounce Direct designs and manufactures all of its bouncy castles, ball pools, inflatables slides, assault courses, moonwalk domes, marquees, play trailers and soft play centres in house in some of its Leeds based factory’s and customers are always welcome, by appointment, to visit and see the production facilities for themselves.

About our Futuristic Design & Production: Better Bounce designs and manufactures all its products in our Leeds based factory’s, yes that’s right factories. Customers are always welcome to come and view the production process for themselves. In recent years we have invested heavily in over £100,000 worth of sophisticated 3D Computer Aided Design Software and a computer controlled flatbed cutting machine which gives unrivalled accuracy in the production process which really is worth a visit to see it in action.

Our CNC cutting machine/ Zund plotter is the largest most efficient bouncy castle & inflatable cutting machine currently operating in the UK, which gives unrivalled accuracy in the production of panels and enables us to design some of the most complex inflatables on the market whilst drastically speeding up the production process & increasing quality along the way. This in turn allows us to offer unbeatable products at unbeatable prices all year round.

The way we construct our castles is certainly not the simplest or quickest method but it ensures each bed panel is Quadruple stitched using rot proof bonded nylon 20 gauge thread for maximum quality and durability as standard.

The materials: Better Bounce Direct uses only the best quality materials in the construction of our products and it’s all soured in the UK. The inflatables are manufactured from high quality fire retardant reinforced PVC coated fabrics. Constructed from a strong weave that is thickly coated on both sides with PVC, it is an extremely robust material with a cape grain finish to resist dirt. It is non-toxic, certified fire retardant which is compliant with BS5438 and BS5867 and has a nominal weight of 610 grams/sq. metre with a nylon or polyester based base cloth.

Bespoke Requirements & Custom inflatables: As well as manufacturing high quality 'standard' units, Better Bounce Direct has two full time designers with over 20 years of experience in Computer Aided Design, 12 of which have been dedicated solely to the production of bouncy castles, inflatable’s & play structures for Better Bounce.

Our designers can create just about anything you can imagine and will be more than happy to discuss any bespoke requirements you may have & bring your ideas to life at the most competitive prices on the market.
