Inflalandia X-treme Jungle Park

You don't want to make me angry, I might explode!The folks at Producciones Walleska Serra are hoping to provide a little distraction for children of all ages when they host Inflalandia X-treme Jungle Park again this year. From June 20th until June 21st, the Puerto Rico Convention Center will transform itself into the largest park of inflatable attractions in Puerto Rico (maybe in the Caribbean?).

With more than 100 different attractions, Inflalandia offers a wide variety of activities, all available under one roof, and in the air conditioning of the PRCC. Tickets are a little steep though. A one day pass is $19.25, plus IVU, and a two day pass is $26.25, plus IVU. Of course maybe if the kids get there right at opening time, 9:00 a.m., and then shut down the park at 9:00 p.m., you can maybe say that is a good deal. However, if the park is as successful as the promoters hope it will be, I wonder how much of that time might be spent waiting in line.

Frankly, I've never heard anything about how successful this event has been in the past, so it's hard to predict how well it will do this year. My guess is that they'll do just fine. There are enough families that have yet to be impacted by the severe economic downturn here in Puerto Rico, and will be happy to dump their snot-nosed brats off at the park for two days. So if you plan on taking the kids, I would expect more people to be in attendance than you think, which by the way is always sound advice for any event here in Puerto Rico.

Here are just a few of the extra attractions (besides the inflatable variety):

  • Canopy (Tiros por aire en Soga)
  • Campo de Gotach (Paint ball competitions)
  • Skateboard ramps courtesy Moisty
  • Mini golf by Funscapes
  • PR Storm Cheerleaders
  • Mini circus
  • Mini girls SPA by Amazing Parties
  • Super hero parade

Went there last year with my son. It quickly devolved into a Lord Of The Flies type scenario with parents encouraging their kids to cut in line, pushing people around.Delirious, sweaty adults pushing their kids to the big Inflables. Fortunately, on a corner there was a small plain looking Inflatable castle that was good enough for my kid to play and jump around for a while. Just 4 or 5 parents with kids there. Nobody was at the booth which suited us just fine. Not going ever again.

Oh man. Good one. Lord of the Flies.

I had mad visions darting through my head when I read your description. I can only imagine that nightmare. Thanks for sharing,
