Best Age-Appropriate Inflatables for an Outdoor Party

These days, you can’t have a party without inflatables. That being said, not all inflatable activities appeal to all ages. Teens scoff at the notion of jumping around in a bounce house, while obstacle courses present too great a challenge, if not physical hazards, to toddlers. If you’re planning a large outdoor party (at least with 50 people present), what are the best and most age-appropriate inflatables?

Toddlers and Children

As a general rule, party activities must appeal to a wide group. To get all children involved, consider setting up an inflatable slide – ideally, one that accommodates multiple children at a time – for simple yet fun races, or order a bounce house, also known as a jumper.

In certain instances, inflatables for older children may be too large for toddlers. For this reason, Inflatable 2000 offers toddler-specific activities: often areas where children under the age of 4 can move around and explore in a colorful enclosure while still being visible to their parents.

Teens and Even Adults

As such, consider setting up inflatables for your teen and even adult guests.

As a basic rule of inflatables for teens and adults, select a game or activity that gets multiple people (ideally, six to 12) involved and is fun to watch. Using this as a qualifier, the best inflatables for teens and adults tend to be larger obstacle courses, laser tag enclosures, sumo suits with rings, jousting matches, climbing walls, and bungee runs.
