With a fleet of inflatable rides, Hayden resident Caleb Cagle started the summer hoping to bring fun to Northwest Colorado with his new business.

On Thursday, August 4, Cagle was setting up a bounce house to entertain children visiting the Hayden Farmers Market. ItIt’s been a busy summer for Cagle, who started Sassquatch Party Rentals and entertained patrons at events including the Craig Reggae Festival, a private event in Walden a few weeks ago, the Hayden Farmers Market and a handful of events in Steamboat Springs.

“It’s entertainment. Whatever you eventwe do, we have something for everyone,” Cagle said. “If youyou’re having a backyard barbecue and want to have fun, iI have an inflatable ax throwing game. I have attractions that bring all types of people together, whether it’s a graduation, a birthday party or whatever.”

Sassquatch Party Rentals opened July 18, offering seven attractions, including two bounce houses, a double slide and splash, a 17-foot tall double water slide, human hamster balls, a Viking ax throwing game and more. It even has an inflatable gentlemen’s tent to make summer gatherings a little more enjoyable.

He said some of the rides make a great addition to a kids’ party, but Sassquatch has something for every gathering and attractions for every age.

“You know, I don’t knowI don’t want to just focus on the youth,” Cagle said. “I think adults enjoy this type of thing too. Slip ‘n splash and hamster balls and I also have Gellyball blasters. Ita mix between Nerf guns and paintball where you shoot some biodegradable ammo and (they) hurt a lot less than paintball. It’s fun for many years to come.”

The business idea came when Cagle, who works full-time as a raft guide, was back home in Tennessee talking about ideas for his mother and her business partner, who had just opened a daycare center and were looking for something to anchor their grandchildren. . opening celebration.

Cagle told his mother he needed to get a bounce house. She replied that she had tried but it was impossible to find anyone or anyone who hired them in the area and maybe he should consider opening a business.

Cagle has lived in Steamboat since 2019, and that conversation with his mother sticks in his memory.

“I got it in my head and I coulddon’t stop thinking about it,” Cagle said. “I started looking into it and found that there was a trade show in Orlando, Florida, just a few hours’ drive from me.”

So Cagle headed to Florida to see what the trade show had to offer while still thinking about starting his own business.
