Twizel offers blow-up thrills
Kids needing to use up that extra holiday energy can bounce the day away in Twizel.
The Ruataniwha Holiday Park has installed a giant inflatable slide and adventure bouncy castle for kids to enjoy this summer.
Originally wanting a 130 metre inflatable waterslide as something different for the kids, owner Tony Ritchie then decided to test out the quality on two smaller ones before spending large.
He said he wanted something different for the kids, who were "flat out" bouncing on them.
He is charging $2 for 15 minutes' playing time on the inflatables and anyone is welcome to play.
Mr Ritchie said it was perfect for parents to leave and have a cup of coffee while their children played, supervised by park staff.
