A gigantic inflatable obstacle course is making its way to Dubai

Inflatathon has ten huge obstacles including a 7-metre high Everest and 25-metre long Himalayas


Ready to go through what might be the bounciest obstacle course in Dubai? Inflatathon is making its way to Dubai, and it invites everyone to have fun and get fit at the same time.

Taking place at Safa Park on Friday November 23, the event organised by the Dubai Sports Council will feature a host of activities based around everything bouncy, along with an after party with a live DJ and food trucks.

Early bird tickets for the event are now on sale until Thursday September 27, going from Dhs160 for standard entry and Dhs240 for a family ticket which includes one adult and one child. After that, it’s back to normal prices.

The four-kilometre course consists of ten huge obstacles that contestants bounce their way through, including the Himalayas, a set of steep slopes spread across 25m and a challenge where participants jump from hole-to-hole to make it through.

Another mountain-inspired obstacle includes Everest, a seven-metre high course that will take some time to get over, along with The Equalizer, featuring a daring jump to finish off the course.

While the main focus of the inflatable obstacle course is pure fun, there is a series of heats for those who fancy a bit of competition.

These include the “Inflatables Heat” where participants get dressed as either T-Rex or a sumo and try to make their way through the course in hilarious-style, along with the “Family Heat” where teens and adults cooperate to get around.

If you’re not a fan of bouncing and being hurled around, next to the course will be The Village, which includes a small children’s area to keep little ones entertained, along with a mini-food truck park for the foodies.

“We are excited to be launching a new obstacle course experience in the region. We hope to see people of all ages and from all walks of life across Dubai out in force and enjoying this hugely entertaining event," said Secretary General of Dubai Sports Council H.E Saeed Hareb.

“Our goal is to provide the community with opportunities to engage with sport and live a healthy lifestyle. This is a unique way to get active and have fun at the same time.”

To finish off, Inflatathon will even have a festival style after party at the Village with a stage and live DJ, so you can instead bounce around to the beat of the music.

Standard tickets are priced at Dhs200 per person, while VIP entry for Dhs400 includes entry to the Inflatable heat, a T-Rex or a sumo inflatable suit, Inflatathon merchandise including a Snapback cap or top along with deserving finisher medal.
