Hannover. Acropolis, Cobra, Scorpion, Eagle, Iceberg – obstacle-course jocks and bouncy castle fans know straight away what these names are all about: BLOW UP Extreme is on its way to Hannover for a three-week stay from 1 to 21 August in halls 6 to 9 and the paddock area surrounding the House of Nations in the southeast zone of the exhibition grounds.

Deutsche Messe succeeded in convincing the Dutch organizer BLOW UP EXTREME to choose the Hannover Exhibition Center as an exciting venue for the indoor and outdoor spectacle.

"We invite everyone from Hannover and the entire region to come, check out and try out these insanely complex, exciting and impressive obstacle courses and attractions. This is sure to be a totally special experience for young and old alike, as well as for those who do obstacle course racing as a hobby or at the highest level," says Robert Bachmann, Director Venue Sales, Deutsche Messe AG.

Together, the four exhibition halls with an area of over 70,000 square meters make for a veritable paradise featuring games, a bouncy castle and sport in a class of its own. Depending on their ticket type, participants will be able to enjoy letting off steam for over three hours on more than 55 different inflatable attractions. From the world’s longest inflatable indoor obstacle course of 662 meters long to a bouncy castle of 30 x 30 meters with base jumps of up to five meters high.

The Extreme Area hosts the world's largest indoor obstacle course for adults and children aged 12 and over. The course is 662 meters in length and guarantees to be a whole lot of fun while at the same time calling for stamina, skill and agility. And the Acropolis, the Scorpion, the Iceberg, the Juvenile and the Eagle are located right nearby. The Game Area offers cool activities and games such as swingball, climbing walls, timed runs and ball games for players of all ages. The Freestyle Area is aimed at all kids and offers 16 exciting attractions, including obstacle courses, play equipment and the Juvenile – an XXL jumping island covering an area of 625 square meters. The fourth area has a big mix with a total of eight huge family obstacles where the participants all compete against each other.

The four halls are open on all weekdays from 09:00 to 23:00. Tickets are booked per person, day and slot: Slot 1 (09:00–13:00), Slot 2 (14:00–18:00), Slot 3 (19:00–23:00).
