Whirligig! – aka Inflatable Ride Heaven – Starts This Friday

Friday marks the beginning of the annual Whirligig! extravaganza down at Seattle Center, which is a sort of air-filled utopia for spring-breaking kids — both big and small alike.  At least the information I’ve been handed speaks to it being an all ages event, but my parent sense tells me that this is likely a subjective statement, wherein the grown-up fun is had by watching your childrens bouncy, gleeful merriment.  Which certainly has its appeal, I just don’t expect my excitement to hit the roof until they let my 6’7″, 250lb ass into the giant inflatable castle.  Then again, I’m speaking as someone who hasn’t attended the Whirligig! events of the past, so I strongly encourage you to straighten me out in the comments section if need be.

Whirligig! runs through April 12th, and is open from 11am-6pm daily.  Meaning you should shoot for an arrival time of 10:50am (on a weekday) if you’re hoping to avoid the huge crowds.  Keep in mind that Thursdays are free, so all bets are off on those days.  Otherwise, it’s $1.50 for a single use ticket, $7.50 for an unlimited day pass, and $4.50 for a toddler day pass.  No matter what level of stomach-jostling  fun you buy into, for the sake of everyone else, make sure your little ones hold off on that extra corn dog until after you’ve left for the day.
