    • The Monster

      This year, The Monster dares you to let loose your inner child as the world’s biggest bouncy castle experience announces a full UK tour with tickets on sale now. At nearly 300 metres long, The Monster is one of the world’s largest inflatable obstacle courses and hands down the craziest nostalgic bouncy castle experience for adults.

      The brainchild of the events team who unleashed sell-out events with the The Beast in London (Alexandra Palace) and Birmingham (NEC) in 2017, The Monster is bigger, better and more bonkers than ever before.

      Run, bounce, dance and jump your way around The Monster and regress to your childhood as you take on 42 brand new obstacles including an 18m “Mega Slide”, a “Tunnel of Love” and “The Bouncy Cage of Doom!”

      The fun doesn’t stop once you’ve conquered The Monster. With your adrenaline pumping, you’re bound to have worked up a thirst and a serious appetite – enjoy a wide range of delicious street food, refreshing super-cocktails, craft beers and much more from a host of mouth-watering street food pop-ups. With live DJ’s, giant adult ball pits and other crazy activities available throughout the event, this will be one unmissable funfest you won’t forget!

      Please arrive 30 minutes before your session begins.

      Please note for the kids sessions it is age 11-15 year olds only and they must be accompanied by an adult over the age of 21. 16 + only for adult sessions.

      FAQ’S

      DO I NEED A TICKET?

      Yes. Sessions on The Monster inflatable are ticketed and will run through the day in 30 minute blocks from 10.00am to 11.00pm. You will need to purchase a ticket in advance to experience The Monster. Spectator tickets are also available for the adult sessions. For the Kids slots, parents/guardians accompanying ticket holders will have access for viewing and to the food, drink and party areas (without needing a ticket).

      HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

      Tickets are limited so don’t miss out by booking yours today. The Monster sessions are ticketed and will run through the day in 30 minute blocks from 10.00am to 11.00pm, with morning sessions for kids. Each ticket costs £20 (plus a booking & transaction fees) and includes one full circuit on The Monster. The food, drink and party areas will be open throughout your experience. You can arrive at any time throughout the day, and stay as long as you want – but you will only be allowed on to The Monster inflatable at your allocated time slot. Spectator tickets cost just £2.50 (plus transaction fee) and will gain you access to the food, drink and party areas.

      IS THERE AN AGE LIMIT TO GO ON THE MONSTER?

      Afraid so – for the adult sessions which will run from 11am to 11pm each day, you will need to be 16 or over. There are morning sessions for kids each day at 10am, but these will only be for 11-15 year olds.

      WHAT TIME SHOULD I ARRIVE?

      You should arrive at least 30 minutes before your scheduled Monster session. This will give you enough time to hand your stuff in at the locker room and exchange your ticket for your wristband and get ready to experience The Monster! The earlier you arrive the more prepared you will be for your experience! Feel free to arrive as early as you want to enjoy the party!

      WHAT TIME DOES THE VENUE OPEN AND CLOSE?

      The venue will be open from 9:30am each day and closes at 11.30pm. The Monster sessions start at 10am each day, but the food, drinks and party areas will open throughout.

      HOW LONG DOES THE MONSTER TAKE TO GO ROUND?

      Depending on how fit, strong and ambitious you are, The Monster can take anywhere from about 10-30 minutes to go round. On average we’d say around 15-20 minutes. With a hangover, it can feel like a lifetime!

      DO I NEED TO BE REALLY FIT AND STRONG TO DO THE MONSTER?

      No. Whilst, The Monster is challenging and demanding at times, you can take it at your own pace and if you can’t do one of the obstacles, we’ll help you out. It’s all about having fun at the end of the day.

      WHAT IF I AM PREGNANT OR HAVE A HEART CONDITION?

      Due to the nature of The Monster, it is not recommended for pregnant women, people with heart conditions or those carrying any serious injuries.

      WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

      We would advise light and stretchy clothing to get the most out of your experience. At the end of the day The Monster is a physical obstacle course. You can wear jeans and a shirt if you want, but you’d be much better off in Active Wear! Yeah we said it – Active Wear! Shoes are not permitted on The Monster. You can wear socks, but you are better off bare-feet.

      WHERE DO I PUT MY STUFF/BELONGINGS?

      There will be a secure cloak room in the venue to store your belongings while you are on The Monster.

      IS IT INSIDE OR OUTSIDE?

      The Monster will be held indoors to protect you from the elements. Just wait until you see it!

      CAN I TAKE FOOD AND DRINK WITH ME?

      No afraid not, but we have the best street food and refreshing beverages on offer all day (both with and without alcohol!)

      DO I NEED TO SIGN A WAIVER?

      Yes, just so we make sure you’re ready to ‘Meet the Monster’, and understand the risks involved in doing so.

      SMOKE, SOUND AND SPECIAL EFFECTS

      We use haze, theatrical smoke, strobe lights, flashing lights, fire, CO2 cannons and other sound and lighting effects. There will be loud music (from incredible DJ’s!). Please be aware of this if you have any sensitivities.
