InflataNation is on Beverley’s Flemingate development, a (very) short walk from the train station and around 5 – 10 minute walk from the bus station. There is a multi-storey car park right next door which costs from £1 for 3 hours.
We visited here in July 2019 as an after-school treat. Thank you to InflataNation for inviting us.
InflataNation is an indoor adventure park. It’s a massive room full of bouncy-castle fun. It is suitable for all ages from teeny tots to adults. For an after school treat, it was perfect.
Booking is advised – via their website at https://www.inflatanation.com/locations/beverley/ – take care when booking. I didn’t find the website all that intuitive to use and inadvertantly booked the wrong time. I then needed to call up the central helpdesk and get my time moved, which was a little annoying. Ah well, I’ll be more careful next time!
You are advised to turn up half an hour before your allocated time – your time is your bounce time – and you will need some time to book in, complete your waiver form, and de-shoe. To save time, you can print off your waiver form and complete it in advance (the form holds enough space for up to four bouncers),
We turned up half an hour in advance as advised only to find we were the only ones in there – straight to the desk, took two minutes to check in and then we had our pick of the tables in the upstairs seating area before our session started. If you go at a time like we did, you probably won’t need the full half hour, but in busier times you definitely will.
There is a snack bar downstairs which is good for snacks and drinks. You will need at least a drink after an hour of bouncing!
My 8 year old twins love InflataNation. There is lots to do – it’s not just about bouncing – there are slides, ball pit areas, obstacles, and more. I put them through the rope at our start time and only saw them when they needed a quick drink. They don’t need their old mum anymore (apart from being the keeper of the money and the chauffeur).
For us parents, InflataNation has a viewing gallery, a snack bar, and air-con. There is a nice window overlooking the road and the train track below. I’ve spent worse hours to be honest.
After school, it seemed a lot quieter than on a weekend. I would definitely come back to do an after-school session; it was relatively quiet and peaceful, easy to book in, and was a good way of letting the children blow off some steam after a hard day’s graft at school.
InflataNation currently have seven locations around the UK; Beverley, Manchester, Cheshire, Stetchford (Birmingham), Glasgow, Newcastle, and West Bromwich.
