Backyard Water Slide is Not for the Faint of Heart Beth Snyder July 24, 2012 I cannot even begin to tell you how much I wish I could have one of these! Given how much I loved my Slip ‘N Slide when I was a kid, this is like Christmas and my birthday all in one box. Unfortunately, I don’t have a hill in my yard, nor really enough space without a tree even if I did have a hill. But I’m keeping it in mind, and a long hill will definitely be on my list of desired things the next time I’m looking for a new place to live. This is obviously a water slide, which means there’s really not a whole lot to explain about it. It measures 75 feet long by 12 feet wide, and is constructed of specially formulated, UV-protected plastic. It’s rated to hold up to 256 pounds per square foot (for some reason, this particular stat makes me giggle… how do they figure that out, anyway? It’s just a sheet of plastic, weight shouldn’t matter unless it’s suspended in the air). Initial setup is supposed to take about 15 minutes, because this claims to be the world’s biggest backyard water slide. It comes with fasteners to keep it from sliding off your hill (or anywhere else), and there is no hose hookup. I’m guessing that means you need to provide water by some other means…I’d suggest a sprinkler at the top, and probably at least a couple more further down, to ensure the entire surface remains wet. Otherwise, your sliding might be horribly interrupted by a dry patch. You know what I like? It’s actually pretty affordable at $149.00 US. Source: Craziest Gadgets Share This With The World!
