Inflatable obstacles up to 15ft high of all shapes and sizes will be at Portishead Showground until August 31.

The organiser of attraction for children has made the decision not to open today (Friday) due to strong winds, and its closure also looks possible for tomorrow (Saturday).

Inflatable Theme Park, UK made the call in the interest of protecting public safety, however, the theme park does look set to open on Sunday.

The touring attraction is ‘Covid-secure’ and features 17 inflatables, including a 50ft high slide, a 35ft inflatable helter skelter and a play centre to entertain children.

There are also bungees, zorbs, a wipeout zone and a crazy golf course for family members to try out, however, these features are not included in the entry wristband price.

The inflatables are open to children between the ages of two and 14, visitors can arrive on the day and hot and cold food is also served on-site.
