There is nothing like the Pentalum. This massive inflatable is a spectacular mind-bending world that must be explored to be believed. Unlike anything we’ve seen before the Pentalum is one-part science-fiction space station, one part colorful dream, one part futuristic playground.  This dazzling structure utilizes natural light to create a mesmerizing radiance on its organically curved walls, domed roofs and maze-like walkways. The Pentalum is one of a series of incredible structures created by the Architects of Air which have been seen by over 2 million visitors in 38 countries - but have never before landed on the east coast. Great for kids, grandmas and hot dates - don’t miss your chance to experience the Pentalum when it takes over the LOD!
