If you haven’t seen the hilarious video of myself and a few fellow bloggers playing a grown up version of Hungry Hippo in this new inflatable wonderland where have you been? Over 20,000 people have already viewed it and it’s only been up for a couple of days. It made me think I’m not the only big kid out there.

We are Vertigo are known for providing some of the best activity parks in Belfast. I’ve already experienced the indoor sky dive and loved it but I personally haven’t been on a bounce castle since I was in primary school I think (actually I can’t remember). So armed with some kids (not mine but the lovely A life to Style’s three energetic little ones) we headed off to the opening night of the Newtownbreda site. The new state-of-the-art We are Vertigo Inflata Park replaces the trampoline park and features drop slides, a bounce areas, a sweeping arm, a travellator and a wipeout assault course.

I was cautious when we first arrived signed our insurance forms, got hold of some bright yellow bouncing socks and attended our briefing. The staff member maybe a little nervous gave us a whole list of dos and do nots. She also warned us we would only have a small time frame to enjoy the bounce. I’ll be honest she deflated our excitement levels a little at this point. But as it was the first night I’ll hope she works on her patter and customer service a little. In saying that every other member of staff we met from that point on where fantastic special shout out to Andrew who give us a right giggle when strapping us in and explaining the rules of the “hungry hippo” game and was the guy behind the camera.

Overall I highly recommend the Inflata Park for a day out with big and little kids, there is actually a dedicated toddler area for children aged 1-4, the parks main bounce area is open to anyone over 4 years of age. I can see it as being a fantastic hen night out or a team bonding session as well book the VIP area in the Mezzanine for drinks and food. You will bounce, laugh, your hair will be full of static and you will discover muscles you didn’t know you had-it’s a great workout!!!
