Growing up, Jessi Shidransky would stand at his window, framing the view with an invisible camera. Today, he carries professional camera equipment and snaps photographs from a much closer angle. He works with his subjects to capture the emotions of memorable occasions?including a newborn's first months, weddings, and bar mitzvahs held in a volcano?as well as artful peeks at ordinary life. Many of his shoots are set outdoors, taking advantage of the natural light and informal atmosphere to create shots such as a girl in rain boots on a balcony to a boy swinging through trees in a pirate's bandana.
At Inflatable World, a 35-foot slides tower above 40,000 square feet of space as youngsters cavort among the outdoor park's 12 air-filled and watery attractions. Nestled among the soaring slides, bounce domes shelter leaping tykes and obstacle courses challenge adventurers to navigate obstructed terrain. Themed inflatables in the shapes of dragons, pirates, and saber-toothed tigers host open-play participants, as well as parties and fundraisers. Inflatable World also rents out its stock for events, pairing football enthusiasts with end-zone bounce houses or existentialists with specially deflated items.
Pumpkin Stations turn pumpkin shopping and family-park excursions into a one-stop trip. Each of the five Pumpkin Station locations houses a variety of family-fun activities, from giant slides and mini-trains to sky fighter rides and carousels. Mission Valley, for instance, enables visitors to get their sea legs with an on-site boat ride, while the El Cajon game zones gives them a place to rest in between activities. No matter the location, families, friends, and groups can stroll through a pumpkin patch to seek out a large, plump gourd to take home and carve into a jack-o-lantern.
