    Parents please remember, every Inflatable you allow to child to get must have a properly trained adult supervising the operation and properly secured. The Titanic Inflatable has a worrisome history of injuring children and adults. The slide must also be inspected by someone approved to inspect amusement rides by the Commonwealth of Virginia. These Inflatable devices are controlled sources of energy that can and do cause injury.
