On a sunny afternoon, kids climb to the top of a giant inflatable slide, kick their feet out, and ride the yellow decline into a ball pit. The merrymakers behind Sumo Party Planners enliven children's parties in just this fashion by renting out inflatable play structures such as bounce houses, obstacle courses, and life-size replicas of The Pentagon. Further amusements range from popcorn machines to face-painting stations. Sumo Party Planners can also combine rentals and services into party packages, with special pricing for schools, churches, charities, and the military.
