It’s set to be a fun summer of garden parties and bouncy castles as the nation’s lockdown restrictions are lifted according to new research from the Register of Play Inspectors International (RPII) – 'an international body for testing inflatables and training operators – and national inflatable inspection body PIPA - which reveals that during the summer (June – August) 44 percent of all UK adults will host a garden party and one in 10 are interested or intend to hire a bouncy castle for their event – meaning as many as 2.2 million people could be set to hire a bouncy castle or other inflatable this summer in the UK
Yet despite this, the RPII and PIPA’s research reveals that 25 per cent of bouncy castle operators are not up-to-date with inflatable inspections after the lockdown and 33 per cent of UK adults don’t know what to ask regarding the safety of the bouncy castle at the point of booking one.
