No, Macarthur's newest attraction is not a place where you go and inflate things. It is a place full of jumpy / bouncy castles - perfect for expending excess energy now that the school holidays are here. We went when it first opened and it was pretty busy but I observed it cleared out around lunchtime so yesterday afternoon we went back for a return visit and there were no queues.
Adults can join in the fun too or sit and watch. Entry for participants is $15, with special pricing for children under 5. There is a sectioned off area for younger children next to the cafe so little ones can bounce and run while parents enjoy a drink. The venue is stroller friendly and there is plenty of parking.
In addition to the hoop run above there is a velcro wall, a 'cliff jump' and a 'jousting' arena. Lots of fun for all ages. Note that socks are required to be worn.
Inflatable World is located at 1/79-83 Anderson Road, Smeaton Grange (next to Maximum Skating rink). They are closed now for the holidays but will re-open 4th of January and throughout the school holidays.

Rizal Park, Rosemeadow
It's November and that means unpredictable weather but more excitingly Fisher's Ghost! That's right, it's once again that time of year when we get to experience a parade, a street fair, outdoor gigs and movies, an art exhibition, carnival and fireworks - mostly FREE and all to celebrate the ghostly appearance of Fred Fisher, intent on guiding a local farmer to his body and thus solve the mystery of his disappearance 189 years ago.
For a full calendar of events check out the Festival of Fisher's Ghost website.
And if it's Fisher's Ghost, that must mean Christmas is just around the corner. If you happened to be at Macarthur Square this morning you may have witnessed the jolly man himself arriving, with his sizeable entourage, ready for those all essential Christmas photos. You can find out more about Santa's arrival at Macarthur Square's website. (Oh and a tip for parking - try the middle floor car-park, Big W end. Yes it's still open!)
Finally, if you're as organised as I am you're already thinking about planning for 2016 there's no more gorgeous way to do it than with Leonie Dawson's amazing 2016 workbooks + NEW weekly planner.
