My kids love the Cape Cod Inflatable Park in Yarmouth with an intensity that defies logic. Or maybe I’m just an old grump.
The Inflatable Park delivers exactly what it says on the tin. It’s a whole lot of inflatable bouncy things like you’d find at a kiddie party but bigger, better and just generally… more insane.
This year they have done a revamp of the whole place so many of the inflatables were new. My kids could barely contain their excitement because their old favourites were still there plus lots of new exciting ones.
For example, there was the inflatable where you put yourself in a Velcro suit and try to throw yourself so that you stick onto a giant dart board.
We had the mechanical bull operator throw my Spanish au pair for a really wild ride. It seemed only fair since the Spanish are still into bull fighting. We felt justice ought to be served in some small cosmic way.
Then you had the crazy jousting on top of the inflatable which reminded me of those crazy Japanese television contest shows. It was really entertaining to watch – similar to Total Wipeout featuring your own family.
There is a separate toddlers area as well as a water park inflatable area which is included in the general price of admission. In addition there is a challenge area of trapezes, tightropes etc which is meant for teenagers and adults. It’s probably really good if you are preparing for a show like American Ninja. The challenge area is an additional fee.
The Cape Cod Inflatable Park isn’t cheap. A summer day admission runs $29 (less for little ones). The Stay and Play Rate with the attached Cape Cod Family Resort is not bad value in this context. For each room you get 4 park passes, breakfast and a pretty good double-bedded room. The rooms are recently revamped too with comfortable beds, air conditioning and WiFi. We had no problem getting connecting rooms. The breakfast is nothing special (cereal and plastic-wrapped muffins). The cost of this motel bounty? In the summer, it’s $169 per room for the weekdays and $219 per room on the weekends.
