Is the term inflatable castles understood by English speakers? Do they exist in English speaking countries? It sounds awful to me

They're normally known as bouncy castles where I come from, but I'll see if I can find a more technical term now...

It looks like both terms are used in the UK. Anyone from the US have a different term?
