On average, most bounce houses that made of heavy-duty PVC or vinyl materials weight between 150 and 400 pounds. Of course you will find a lighter or heavier one. For example, a 12'x8'x8' jump house weights 130 lbs, a 10'x10'x10' bounce house weights about 160 lbs, a 22'x22'x18' moonwalk jumper weights 430 lbs.

Evey bounce house comes with a safety label that indicates the minimum recommended age, maximum players, total weight limit, etc. These restrictions determine how many kids can play on it at the same time. Although different size of bounce houses have different weight limit specifications, as a general rule, a typically commercial bounce house can support 500 to 1,000 pounds (about 5 to 12 kids). Most bounce houses for rental can hold a total weight of 800 pounds or a maximum players of 8 kids, whichever you exceed first. For the safety of the children and your equipment, you should avoid exceeding 70% to 75% of that maximum limit.
