Take a look at the world's biggest bouncy castle which has been unveiled in Hampshire


The world's largest bouncy castle which is claimed to be taller than the Great Wall of China has been unveiled at a music festival.

DJ and festival organiser Rob da Bank, along with Cardiff-based Something Creatives, helped create the bouncy castle which has been inflated at the Common People event in Southampton, Hampshire, and will later in the year visit Camp Bestival and Bestival.

The attraction is 23.8 metres long, 20.7 metres wide and 12.8 metres high compared to the previous record holder which was 19 metres long and wide and 12 metres high.

Rob da Bank said: "We do love breaking a record and this is one of our funnest builds so far. Me and my mate Matt from the infamous Inflatable Church had a pipe dream about five years ago of building the world's biggest bouncy castle, and this summer we're making that a reality.

"So polish your socks and step up for what will be one of the most innocent of pleasures - bouncing up and down with gay abandon with your mates, family or friendly strangers."

Something Creatives' Matt the Hat said: "I've always been the first kid in the sandpit and consider play a fundamental part of everyday life. Everyone should find the time to play. The playful spirit of creating joy and fun is shared by Rob da Bank and all of the Bestival family and has made this brilliantly bonkers idea a reality.

"Whether you're young or old, what could be more fun than jumping around inside the biggest bouncy castle in the world?"

The castle has to be filled with 1,143 cubic metres of air and can accommodate 100 people at a time.
