In 2018, a block party was hosted by Meow Wolf, an arts and entertainment company. A rented bounce house was overturned by the wind and trapped the children of Anita Vargas underneath. While Ms. Vargas has not detailed her children's injuries, her attorney has said the injuries were "serious enough that we felt we need to file a lawsuit." The business that owned the bounce house, Amazing Jumps LLC, is also named in the lawsuit. It is alleged that Amazing Jumps LLC should have known the inflatable bounce house, which was in the shape of a castle, was dangerous because it was not properly secured.

In last two decades there has been a dramatic increase in the popularity of bounce houses. Although they may seem less dangerous than rollercoasters or carnival rides, they can ultimately be just as dangerous and have little to no regulations depending on the state.
On Sunday, October 12, 2014, an inflatable bounce house in New Hampshire was lifted from the ground and flew some 40 feet across a farm before crashing down and injuring two toddlers who were inside. The two boys inside had climbed into the bounce house at Sullivan Farm in Nashua, NH.
