They’re colorful and fun — and potentially dangerous. Inflatable bounce houses are making the news all too often these days with stories of runaway houses with kids in tow. In 2016, a little girl was killed when a sudden strong wind blew away the bouncy castle she was playing on. That same year, 10 people were injured when the bounce house blew more than 30 yards across a football field and into a fence during a school carnival. As inflatables become more popular, injuries become more prevalent. Thus, inflatables insurance becomes more of a necessity.
