History of Bouncy Castles

We’ve been told by many children over the years that their party was the best because of the bouncy castle!  That got us wondering who & when bouncy castles were invented!  Here’s what we found out: There is an ongoing “disagreement” between the U.S. and England about who invented the first bouncy castle – our research shows that in 1959 John Scurlock of Shreveport, Louisiana experimented with inflatable covers for tennis courts.
