The Inflatable Backyard Log Flume looks like it could be all sorts of fun, both for the kids and the grownups. When it's fully inflated it measures 21? L x 5? 8? W x 9? H, and deflated it compresses down to 32 1/4? L x 17? W x 17? H, weighing just 55 pounds. It pumps up in just two minutes using the included AC air blower, so it's almost instant watery gratification. You just need a single garden hose attached to the Flume, and you get side-by-side chutes each with its own sprinkler. At the bottom is a one-foot-deep pool for a safe, splashy landing.
The flume will support up to 200 pounds, and is made of 840- and 420-denier PVC-coated fabric. It is held in place by six stakes, and an additional four stakes secure the blower and air hose. Recommended ages are just 5-12 years old, but seriously...could you really have one of these in your back yard and NOT play on it? I didn't think so.
Here's the catch: This thing is going to cost you just under $600.00 US. But if you're an enterprising type of person, I bet you could charge the neighbourhood kids a small fee to use it (say, ten bucks a day), and get your money back by the end of summer.
