The Monster in Croatia! Falkensteiner Family Fun, World's Largest Bouncy Castle

By 8 March 2019

March 8, 2019 - A fabulous family entertainment addition to the Adriatic this summer, as Falkensteiner Punta Skala near Zadar will host the world's largest bouncy castle. Are you ready for The Monster in Croatia?

Time Out London called it 'the number one thing to do in London this summer" in 2018, and the place to be for the summer of 2019 is Falkensteiner Punta Skala, as the luxury resort a few kilometres north of Zadar will have rather large and fun addition for much of the summer - the largest bouncy castle in the world. Come and try The Monster in Croatia!

A staggering 300 metres in length, with a challenging array of obstacles along the route, The Monster has been an unqualified hit in the UK, embarking on a UK tour last year. This is the first time that The Monster has left the UK, and it will be taking up residence at Falkensteiner Punta Skala from June 24 until August 4.

In addition to the course itself, there will be professional animators from the UK (English and German speaking) who will be adding to the fun as you tackle the various challenges in front of you.

The Monster in Croatia will have a slightly different theme than back in the UK, where it is known as a fun adult party. There will be plenty of fun at Punta Skala, that is guaranteed, but it will be aimed more as a family experience, available to all from the age of seven. 

In addition to the bouncy obstacle course, there will be a hospitality area for food and drink, as well as a DJ providing the tunes to enhance the enjoyment.  


Resort guests can enjoy free entrance for a minimum of 2 overnights in Falkensteiner Family Hotel Diadora **** S, Hotel & Spa Iadera ***** or Premium Apartments Senia.

The Monster will also be available to non-residents, so if you are looking for something a little different for the family in the Zadar region (or beyond), a visit to the Falkensteiner Resort - one of Croatia's most luxurious - will be a day out to remember for all. The resort is set on a spectacular peninsula on the water, and it boasts, among other things, the largest wellness centre on the Adriatic - a fine place to relax after a couple of hours of bouncing fun.

Of course, finding a place to house something as big as The Monster might be a challenge for many locations, but the ample Punta Skala grounds offer several options.

The Monster will be located close to Hotel Diadora, as you can see above. It will be open daily from 10:30 until 21:00 (opening times may vary, depending on the weather). 

Tickets will be priced at 25 euro for a 3-hour pass, which compares very favourably for the £20 for 30 minutes back in the UK.

An aerial view of the luxury Falkensteiner Resort Punta Skala - all that is missing from the photo is the world's biggest inflatable obstacle course - and that will be available from June 24.

As the official promo material states:

"The world’s craziest inflatable obstacle course is a phenomenal 300 meters long and will be accessible for kids from 7 years + and all adults! You can jump, skate and cross various thrilling obstacles and just for the brave, the pinnacle of the track is a huge 18-metre-long slide. Unforgettable fun that no one can miss!"

Check out The Monster official website for more information.


The resort is located close to Petrcane, 12 kilometres north of Zadar, and a short drive from the main Zagreb to Split motorway, so the catchment area for visiting tourists is broad.

While the arrival of The Monster in Croatia is probably the most high-profile event that the resort has staged, Falkensteiner Punta Skala has a reputation for innovative and activity and gourmet events. 


One of the gourmet highlights of last summer, for example, was the launch of a pop-up sushi restaurant, with Mediterranean-Asian fusion. The restaurant featured Japanese chefs, as well as a Japanese partner - Jiro Kambe, owner and CEO of the local Kali tuna farm.

Legendary German football captain is a regular summer visitor with his annual soccer camp, and other sporting events for this season include the resort's very own Punta Skala Triathlon, fitness training with Steve Maxwell, and Tennis Days with Joachim Johansson, the former Swedish player once ranked in the world's top 10.

The 5-star Falkensteiner Iadera also played host to the 2018 Nikola Tesla EV Rally, the quiest rally in the world, as about 50 Tesla and other electric vehicles descended on Punta Skala. 


I was fortunate enough to be on the rally, and very much enjoyed the hospitality - I was not alone as you can see from the impression of a fellow rally participant from Canada, above. Many participants agreed that as well as a relaxing stay, it was the gourmet highlight of the rally
