It’s the most wonderful time of the year — a beautiful summer day.

It’s too good of a day to spend inside, but you don’t know what to do outside. An obstacle course might be fun, but who has time or the money to set up an obstacle course?

I’ve got one word for you: inflatables.

Inflatables are the new king of obstacle courses and playground equipment. Few things are as resilient, portable, but also fun as inflatable play equipment.

Keep reading to learn five kickass facts about inflatables!

1. They Aren’t Easy to Pop

Everyone thinks that inflatables are easy to pop. A stray rock, an overenthusiastic poke, or even a single solitary jump is able to pop an inflatable and ruin the whole product.

But on the contrary, technology for inflatables has progressed beyond that point. These days, inflatables use higher quality plastic that stretches rather than tears. The result is that most inflatables can handle just about anything you throw at them. No need to worry about them popping!

Of course, there’s no way that an inflatable is going to be able to protect itself against sharp implements, so keep very sharp instruments as far away from it as possible. But definitely don’t sweat the small stuff, and don’t feel as if you can’t be rough with your inflatable!

2. Portability is Everything

One of the most attractive benefits of fun inflatables is how portable they are. And for most fun events, portability is key. Not everyone has a massive pickup truck to set up an obstacle course with concrete obstacles, or a playground with massive pieces.

That’s where inflatables come in to save the day. Simply pack them up into small boxes, load them into a car, and pump them up when you need them! Squeeze the air out when you’re done, and voila! Tons of fun without the cost of having to spend a lot to move stuff around.

3. They’re the Perfect Summer Event

Inflatables can make the perfect summer event. Because they’re not hurt by water, you can blow up some inflatables, set up a hose or two, and bam! You have a nifty new slip ‘n slide!

You can’t do this with other types of play equipment, where water can get into nooks and crannies and spoil the equipment in the long-term.

4. They Make Great Obstacle Courses

Gone are the days when setting up an obstacle course required much time and effort. With inflatables, you can set up brilliant courses with the most portable obstacle type there is around!

In no time at all, you’ll be ripping and roaring on an inflatable obstacle course that will have even American Ninja Warrior jealous.

5. Kids Love Inflatables

Everyone knows how much kids love inflatables. Whether it’s a colorful bouncy house or a sweet new slide, inflatables will create fun to no end for the kids in your life. So go ahead and do them a favor and get some inflatables for when it’s warm outside!

Inflatables are the Way to Go!

Now that you know inflatables are the way to go, all that remains is for you to go out and purchase the right inflatables for you! Let us know how you plan to use them, whether in an obstacle course or for something else.
