A Space for Family | From the Heart with Derek Fuller | Calgary Business

Imagine taking your kids to Disneyland and then watching them get just as excited about playing in a bouncy castle on the drive home from the airport.

For Derek Fuller, this was the spark for a brand new adventure of his own. After nearly 2 decades in corporate finance he decided it was time for a change. He wanted a life that let him spend time with his family. He also wanted to provide other families a where they could just be together and have fun together, be real, and forget about life’s challenges for a while.

That’s how Big Fun Inflatable Park in Calgary was born. Join Derek on his adventure in this episode of From the Heart and learn a bit more about Big Fun.

Nothing makes him happier than being able to be present and involved in his family’s life. Providing his and other families like his with an opportunity, facility and environment to spend time together, let loose and have fun is a dream that has become a reality.
