But as with most things in life things change. In the last five years most U.S. "manufacturers" have thrown in the towel and are no longer making their own Inflatables. Theyre now importing China made Inflatables and passing them off as "Made in the U.S.A." In addition a new breed of internet phonies are posing as "manufacturers" and selling "China made Inflatables" or acting as a distributor for some other inflatable company importing from China. The fact of the matter is there are only a few manufacturers left that still build their entire product line of Inflatables right here in the good old U.S.A. Its more expensive but far superior in durability. And yes in spite of what you have been told there is a big difference in Safety Quality Craftsmanship.
Many of these companies make up their start-up costs in only one season! Plus the advertising is done for them as each public event draws in more and more people. The downside is that the cost of a rental space combined with paying a full-time team of employees can be pretty high and more accidents are prone to happen to your inflatables in a large crowd of people. And finally there is the indoor inflatable play center option. Family fun centers are popping up all over the United States and are doing surprisingly well. Children of all ages enjoy coming to locations with a series of inflatables vendors and video games.
Some of these optional rudders just help the kayak track straight. A lot of inflatable kayaks have maneuverability comparable to hard-shell boats.

I will list these avenues in order of size. Your first option is the basic backyard rental company.
