What’s better? Bouncing all day on a giant inflatable, or splashing away at the lake? What if you didn’t have to choose? In the words of my four-year-old, “I want everything!”
Giant inflatable aquaparks are finding their way onto lakes across Canada. If you find yourself holidaying near one of them, you are going to want to check it out!
We first experienced the joy of bouncing on a giant inflatable structure in the open water on a visit to Cozumel. As if a day on the water isn’t fun enough on its own, add into the mix climbing, sliding and jumping…well that’s just a recipe for fun!
