Last weekend we were invited to check out Inflata Nation Birmingham and let the kids loose! We visited on a Saturday afternoon during a bounce session, which is open to all ages. However, there are other various sessions such as Inflata Tots (which is exclusive just for toddlers), disability friendly sessions as well as grown up sessions. Inflata Nation also offer parties and various classes.
Inflata Nation does offer walk in’s however it is recommended you book online first to guarantee your bounce time. Upon arrival, we completed a waiver for each adult and included the kids on each form. We then got given a wristband each to indicate what time our session was.
At 1pm, our bounce time began and we were let loose across the whole of the play equipment. The play equipment is a wide range of inflatable apparatus located in a large hall. I suppose it could be compared to a trampoline park, however there is no trampolines, just a large inflatable area with various activities, slides and games to participate on.
Upon entry into the Inflata Nation park, your greeted with a large area of bouncing hills! From this section, you can see what various activities are available for all to join in (there is no age limit for any of the activities!) There is however an under 4 area which is accessible from the cafe area.
As my three are aged 2, 5 and 9, we did spend most of our time in the main area with Baby K dipping in and out of the under 4’s section.
So what is here at Inflata Nation Birmingham?
This was the first activity we came across and is located as soon as you enter the arena. This is a simple area where everyone can bounce together across a load of inflatable hills. This is great fun and a large area to just bounce away!
We only found this at the end as we were having so much fun on the other activities. However this is located near the bubbles and is a wibbly wobbly gladiator duel game. Baby K and Missy were a little too young for this, but Mr B enjoyed dueling against his Dad!
This was a great medium sized slide that is perfect for building up for kids confidence to tackle the HUGE slide here. At the Inflata Drop, you also get to land in a large ball pit. The kids enjoyed this slide, however they did struggle to get through the massive amount of balls in the pit. There seemed too many and it made it really hard for the little ones to work there way through.
Now this slide was the one that we all loved! There is enough room for several people to take on the slide at once as it is divided down the middle and makes two slides. It’s super high and super vertical and was A LOT of fun!
We all took part in this two lane assault course and is a great way to have a race between you all. We only did this once but it was great fun – I just couldn’t drag them away from the Inflata Duo slide!
This is an area where you can strap yourself to a bungee cord and test yourself to see how many balls you can dunk in the baskets. Hungry Hippos anyone?!
Fancy running through air filled pillars that you can bash around?!
This was great fun and at first Missy wasn’t sure if she could tackle the inflatable balls. But she did and she loved it, as did we all! The only one that didn’t make it across was Matt!

We all had a lot of fun during our visit to Inflata Nation in Birmingham Stetchford. I feel 1 hour is plenty as by the time our session had come to an end, the children were desperate for a relax and a drink! We thought the arena wasn’t too big yet had a wide variety of activities to keep visitors busy. Any bigger, and I imagine it would be harder to keep an eye out for the kids. I also really liked how they had a separate area for under 4’s. There was also plenty of staff around. My only criticism is that we didn’t get to see the safety briefing – I am not sure how or why the video wasn’t shown but we were just let into the arena without being asked if we had viewed the briefing.
Would we visit Inflata Nation again? Yes! It would also make a great place for parties too!
Price for a 1 hour bounce is £5.99 for under 4’s and £9.99 for children aged 4 – 15. Adults are also priced at £9.99. If you wish to add an additional 1 hour onto your session, it costs an extra £3 for under 4’s and £7 for over 4’s and adults.
