It’s the summer vacation which means it’s time for us parents to worry about keeping kids entertained. If you can take the kiddos to the beach of swimming pool, that’s awesome. By all means, do it often! How about those days when you can’t? An awesome solution for wet summer fun right in your backyard is getting them a water slide blow up!
A water slide blow up give you the chance to create a mini water park for your kids. Using inflatable structures rather than solid plastic slides means you can fold them back into their box and store them away once you’re done using them. As an added benefit, blow-ups are soft and bouncy, reducing the risk of injury.
The downside? A water slide blow up is usually not cheap. At all. We’re talking several hundreds of dollars here. Now’s the time to get the coins out of your boys’ piggy banks *wink* or maybe just see if the grandparents are willing to chip in. With that in mind, I think I found the one that will give you the best bang for your buck!
I went over several models offered on Amazon and picked out my favorite. It’s this one by Hydro Rush –
It’s fairly large at 18’L x 8’H x 11’W and can entertain up to six kids at once. Perfect for when cousins or friends from school come over. It has a water cannon, a good size slide and a cool climbing wall leading to it –
This water slide blow up an awesome choice and it only costs $399.99 on Amazon. Yes, it is a lot of money but this slide is actually cheaper than some of the smaller models and provides so much more fun.
It’s also easy to set up. You just spread it out on the lawn, attach the blower (included in the price) and within a couple of minutes everything is fully operational. All that’s left is to do is hook up your garden water hose and let the fun begin! There’s even a flow-restriction feature that helps save on water.
Most importantly, the reviewers love it. I’m a huge fan of the wisdom of the crowds and when hundreds of verified buyers give a product 4.5 stars out of 5, you know it’s a great deal. If you’re looking for a water slide blow up for this summer, this would be a really good choice.
