For some kids, no backyard birthday celebration is complete without a bounce house. Since an inner child lurks inside every adult party guest, Travel + Leisure reports that a Belgian company called V-Formation has created what’s billed as the world’s biggest inflatable obstacle course, designed for grown-ups.

Called The Beast, the course features 839 feet (that’s longer than two football fields combined) of inflatable plastic fun, with 32 different obstacle course pieces—think bouncy balls, air-filled walls, nets, and other soft barriers—that can be assembled according to personal preference.

Sadly, you can’t purchase The Beast for your own backyard, as it appears to be one-of-a-kind. However, you can book it for private, corporate, and public events, by reaching out to V-Formation. And if you live in England, you can catch The Beast at the Betteshanger Country Park in Kent, from May 26 to 29; and at the Extreme Festival, a “brand new festival for adventure seekers and adrenaline junkies,” held at Kent’s Groombridge Place Estates from April 29 to 30.

Watch how The Beast works below.
