Abstract

The bouncy castle has become a de rigeur garden accessory for children's parties. The premise is a simple one, to contain and entertain the masses. A large and sturdy construction of a tough polymer, normally PVC, is inflated by a large air pump. The floor is the key section of the castle. Despite the appearance of being a multi-panel affair, air flows freely throughout the floor, consequently landing on one side will assist take off on the other. We report the case of a friction burn sustained following an afternoon in a bouncy castle.
