Inflatable Orca

He’s a big presence . . . our 10 metre-long replica Orca carries the message that all Killer Whales should be #wildandfree and not in captivity

Made for us in the USA by Landmark Creations with generous funding from The Body Shop Foundation and our own supporters in a CrowdFunding campaign

At 4 metres high, 4 metres wide and 10 metres long, our life-sized replica bull Orca is powered by a permanent mains electrical connection. Many hundreds of thousands of people have taken his photo - and their own #whalefie - and taken our positive message away.

This Inflatable orca is by definition a Temporary Demountable Structure (TDS) and our Method Statement and Risk Assessment policies follows the recommended checklist of the Health & Safety Executive.  It is NOT an inflatable play equipment and is NOT “designed to be used by members of the public either as a slide or for bouncing on”; as such, the orca is not regulated by Performance Inflatable Play Accreditation (PIPA) scheme recommendations.
