11 Inflatables You Have to See to Believe

Think of the coolest birthday party you ever attended in childhood. Got it? Now, let me take a wild guess: it had a bounce house, didn’t it? There’s just something about inflatables. Heck, even simple balloon animals have a way of making an event better. The world of inflatables has gotten quite impressive in recent years. We’ve been purchasing—and renting—inflatables for decades. But we’ve truly never seen anything like what’s coming out these days. Here are 11 of the most outlandish inflatables we’ve seen on the market, and how you can incorporate them into your next event.

Snow Globe

Take a trip inside a snow globe. Having a holiday party? This is an obvious must-have. Fill the globe with fake snow, reindeer, and Santa for the ultimate photo op. But we’ve seen this snow globe used for some really cool non-holiday events as well, including an under-the-sea theme complete with a mermaid.

Epic Slides
