Visitors to Norwich’s Sportspark had the chance to take on a series of wacky challenges on an inflatable play area this weekend.

Described by organisers as ‘the largest inflatable indoor fun park in the UK’ the Wacky World obstacle course welcomed energetic challengers to take on a series of activities at the venue at the University of East Anglia.

The blow-up playground featured 12 individual inflatable challenges, including a giant bouncy castle, human wrecking ball, last man standing, an inflatable assault course, and football shoot out.

The ‘one-of-a-kind inflatable area’ also appealed to retro board game lovers, with a giant game of hungry hippos.

Players were attached to a bungee rope and had to compete to collect as many balls as possible to fill their team pouch.

As well as family sessions, Wacky World offered over-18s only sessions for adult pairs.

Each session on the arena lasted 90 minutes, with unlimited play on the obstacles.
