THE doors of inflatable theme park AirNation are set to open on Wednesday, but we got a sneaky first look inside to show you what it's all about.

The venue is housed in the former GymBug off Lowe Street and includes a toddler section, cafe, party room, assault course, two slides and a climbing wall and more.

St Helens Star:

This is the first venue of this kind opened by Mo Serfraz from Birmingham who wanted to offer a children's entertainment theme park to the borough.

He said: "We are pleased to announce St Helens as the first site for AirNation.

"We are currently negotiating a couple of other sites in the Midlands but we chose St Helens because we felt there was a shortage of good quality leisure operators here.

"The response so far has been very positive and we have had a lot of interest with locals looking forward to the first inflatable theme park in St Helens.

St Helens Star:

"With the added bonus of a very central location and free parking for two hours, we are expecting a very busy opening period.

"In order to book, customers can visit our website and check the latest availability or simply just walk in.

"We shall be adding birthday packages in the new year too.

"Our inflatable is designed to provide fun for all ages.

"We have already had a few grandparents taking the plunge down our six metre slide! So we look forward to welcoming you all."
