A mammoth 893ft long inflatable bouncy castle named “The Beast” is set to touch down in London in 2017.
What is it?
The colossal structure, which is actually comprised of 32 inflatables spans the length of two football pitches. The concept was to design a bouncy castle that lets adults feel like ‘a kid again’. Those brave enough to fare into The Beast will face a challenging course consisting of rings, bouncy balls and inflatable walls.
Benedikt De Vreese, the owner of V-Formation (the company that have custom made the bouncy castle) said ‘People are dead tired when they slide the last piece of the track but after that they can’t stop talking about how cool it was. That’s why we built this, to create something special for adults but where they can be a kid again. It’s not always about power or speed, it’s about endurance and knowing yourself. It’s about starting with 100% and making sure you finish with zero per cent without reaching that point in the middle of The Beast.’
When will the bouncy castle arrive?
At the moment, The Beast is allowing Belgians to feel like children again. The bouncy castle is set to arrive in Hyde Park in 2017. This is where contestants will challenge to complete the course in the fasted time. V-Formation have indicated that they have plans to add another 196 feet of inflatables. This will allow them to reach their goal of having an kilometre of track.
