6. Bedford Gallery Inflatable Flamingos Art Installation

Number six features an exhibit in the popular Bay Area art installation called the Bedford Gallery. The talented artists here at IDG created multiple large inflatable flamingos. These flamingos were carefully positioned inside a room where viewers appreciated the art through large windows. Most people think of children’s birthday party bounce houses when they hear “inflatables”. So, Inflatable Design Group rewrites that assumption with inflatables as art installations!

5. Adult Swim Festival Giant Morty Slide

Sliding in at the fifth spot is a GIANT inflatable Morty slide made for the Adult Swim Festival in November! Rick and Morty is one of Adult Swim’s most popular shows and a new episode was being aired at the festival. So, to increase the hype for the show, IDG created a 30+ foot tall multicolored slide with Morty’s head at the top. As you can see, participants climbed up from the back and slid out of Morty’s mouth, picking up some sweet speed down the steep slide. So, kids and adults alike lined up to experience the inflatable fun zone! The Morty slide became a hit because it both added a fun experience and a hilarious view to the festival. Therefore, anything is possible with the talented artists here at IDG!

4. Forbidden Kingdom Festival Inflatable Dragon

At number 4 is a terrifying, giant fire-breathing inflatable dragon looming over Florida’s Forbidden Kingdom Festival stage. The bass and dubstep music and arts festival includes more than just headbanging drops. According to their website, the festival creates a story, a “Forbidden Tale” that paints a fantasy picture of the Forbidden Kingdom, complete with characters and a plot written by Joshua Dean Perry. Also, the website provides a description of a major character – the dragon. It reads, “The Dragon is Forbidden Kingdom’s oldest and most powerful inhabitant” ( So, IDG captured the essence of this dragon with an impressive inflatable on top of the stage. In addition, IDG customized the inflatable to have glowing eyes and bellow smoke out of its mouth. Therefore, this custom inflatable lands a top-five spot on the best entertainment inflatables!
