Bounce houses are common sites in neighborhoods, parks, theme parks, attractions, and amusement centers. One potential dangerous condition in or near bounce house area is concrete. If a bounce house is placed on concrete and there are any exposed areas, a serious personal injury can result. There is also a danger to having any entry or exit areas near concrete. As a child is entering or exiting a bounce house, the child can easily fall or lose balance. This, in turn, can lead to a hard impact on the concrete. This is especially dangerous if the child’s head hits the concrete ground surface. Because of the dangers associated with bounce houses, it is advisable that bounce houses be installed by trained professionals and that all reasonable and available safety measures are provided to prevent serious injuries to children playing in or near the bounce house area.
