We were offered free tickets to Inflatanation in exchange for a honest review.
As the weather gets colder I am always looking for rainy day activities near me. Something to keep my little ones entertained and happy. So when we were invited to visit Inflatanation a couple of weeks ago, I was excited to see if this was an option. My children are huge fans of trampoline parks and soft play centres. So even though we had never visited Inflatanation before I knew that they would love it.
How to Book
You can book sessions online which was nice and easy. I also liked that there was only a certain amount of people allowed on the inflatables in one session. Inflatanation Cheshire was easy to find (and also very close to Runcorn Train Station). They had a car park outside with plenty of spaces.
I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised. It was bright, clean and airy with huge inflatables (think a huge soft obstacle course) to play and bounce on. They also had a lovely clean café right next to the inflatables.This allows you to sit and watch your child play allowing them to find you easily if necessary. This is so important for me, especially with Harriet just turning 6. We have been to trampoline parks in the past where the café is situated away from the play area. This means that your children are wandering around looking for you. Here I could rest easy and enjoy a drink without worrying about them.
On arrival at Inflatanation you need to complete a waiver form (you can do this online to save time once you arrive). It is important that you also watch a brief safety film before they can play. They are then free to go play and bounce and enjoy themselves for a hour or more depending what you book. My girls loved it, they had the best fun and it was nice to see them having such a giggle.
The only negative thing to say is that I thought it was a little expensive.We booked on for a hour which for my girls ages 6 and 8 would cost £9.99 each. I know as a Mum of three to spend £30 for one hours play is a little expensive. However that said you can pay an extra £7 for one additional hour. I would without a doubt take them again, especially during the winter months when the weather gets cold.
I should mention the café as well. It was really reasonable – I always dread it when I see a slush machine as they can be so expensive. Here a small slush here costs just £1.50 (bargain!) – the cakes were delicious too!
Definitely worth a visit – your children and you will love it.
