Making a Splash this Summer
You're spoilt for choice this summer at Football Victoria Inflatable Fun Park. With 10 activities to choose from, you get great value for your dollar and enough to keep a wide age range of the young and young-at-heart amused for the day.

The water was only about 70 centimetres deep at the deepest spot that I could find. Whilst children under eight-years-old must be with a paying adult at all times, even smaller 8 to 10 year-olds may need assistance with entering and exiting the pool and slides, due to the inflatable nature of the equipment.

Consider wearing water shoes of some kind, to assist with walking between the 10 activities onsite. Either that or start on the soccer side of the park with shoes and socks on, get yourself nice and hot and go slide into the pool.

My kids all had a lot of fun in the WOW Balls, testing their balance and bumping their mates to the opposite end of the separate pool. The balls are airtight but participants may get wet. WOW Ball participants must be over five-years-old and under 70kg.

Limited shaded areas are available and you are welcome to bring your own shade tent


Hungry or hot and bothered? Inflatable Fun Park does have some shade around the park, or you can go and relax inside the bistro which has air conditioning and WiFi. You are also welcome to bring your own chairs and shade; they recommend getting in early if you want to do that. Bring appropriate pegs for your shade if required as they cannot supply equipment or assist with installation.

They have toilets, showers and bistro offering a selection of foods and drinks is in a separate building about 100m from the Inflatable Fun Park area. Prices and menu were very reasonable for canteen-fare: Burgers at $7.50, hot chips at $3.50, icy poles and chocolate ice cream bars ranging from $1.50 to $5, coffees and bottled drinks from $2.50.

The pools are chlorinated, adhering to the guidelines set out by the Victorian Health Department. They run daily checks to ensure the balance in the pools are at the levels required to operate.

I was most impressed by the number of highly attentive staff onsite. Safety and prevention are key to everyone's enjoyment of parks like this, and even as a teacher and former lifeguard I was confident that my kids were in great hands the entire time we were there (over four hours). So get online or purchase tickets onsite and have a great day out with your kids!
