minecraft 1.19 how to make a working bouncy house

Minecraft is a game with a huge focus on community. With thousands of servers, if not more, all with their own distinct player bases, the number of people who interact with each other through Minecraft is staggering. There may also be those who want to celebrate other players’ birthdays or just want to create a playground build. And a basic element of these scenarios is the bouncy house or bouncy castle.

While there are many ways to design a bouncy house or bouncy castle, from simple to incredibly complex, the design shown here was created by TSMC – Minecrafttt and is quite simple and easy to build.


The materials needed to build a functional bouncy house in Minecraft 1.19

The foundation

The structure of many bouncy houses or bouncy castles is quite similar. There are four towers on each corner, with walls connecting them. The central square enclosed by these walls is where people play with them, using inflated material and air to create the spring from which they get their inflatable name.

They’re usually made of bright, vibrant, and colorful materials, which Minecraft has no shortage of. The best candidates for blocks are concrete blocks, for this example, with red, orange, yellow, and light blue colors. Players will need 52 light blue concrete and 40 of the other concrete.


The bounce in the bouncy house

As the name of a bouncy house suggests, players must bounce higher than they would normally be able to jump. Otherwise it is not a bouncy house, just a normal non-bouncy house. While the game can’t use air that a real-world bouncy house would, luckily there is only one block available in the game that can be used in this way.

This is the slime block. These blocks are created using nine slime balls, which are dropped from slimes. These mobs can be found at night, especially near a full moon in swamps or spawning in large numbers underground on established slime chunks.

Slime blocks are normally used to hold blocks together, although they have the unique property of being highly bouncy, perfect for building a bouncy house.


Building

Players must start by building a light blue concrete square with 10 blocks on each side. Then, in the inner corners of this square, they need to make checkerboards of yellow and orange concrete. Then these tiny checkerboards need to be connected on their inner sides with red concrete, and the remaining area filled with light blue concrete.

From here, the player must remove the two middle red concrete blocks on whichever side they want to be the entrance. Slime blocks should replace these blocks, and slime blocks should fill the center section. These blocks will add bounce to the bouncy house.

Players must now cover the slime blocks on the mat. In this example, lime carpet is used. They should spread the red concrete up one block and then lay a chain on top of each red concrete, with a red carpet then lay on top of each chain.

Players must spread the orange and yellow checkerboards up by four blocks total, alternating which colors they place on top of each other in each row to maintain the checkerboard effect at a vertical distance.

Players must place red concrete on top of these checkerboard pillars. There will be 12 red concrete on each post, resembling a four by four square with either the corners missing or a large plus sign.

Lastly, there are some finishing touches. Players must place four smooth quartz steps in front of the entrance, making sure the edge steps are corner steps, and then add a smooth quartz slab to each side to extend the wings of these entry steps.
