More Backyard Fun With the Inflatable Bounce House and Water Slide Beth Snyder June 26, 2012 It seems that summer is here in full force once again, at least in my part of the world. For a few days there it was so ridiculously hot that even I was having trouble, and normally I couldn’t be happier than when it’s warm. Probably a fair amount of you are in the same boat (and to those of you who live somewhere that it’s still cold, or in the Southern hemisphere where you’re having winter…I’m sorry), so you’re probably looking at ways to beat the heat that won’t also break the bank. Here’s another fun way to do that while making your back yard the most popular in the neighbourhood. Anyone can rent (or buy, I suppose) an inflatable bounce house. But how many of them also have a water slide? Yeah, that’s what I thought. I’ve never seen one, either. The slide can actually be used wet or dry, so if you’ve got the room indoors you can use it year-round. It measures 17.5′ long by 9? wide and 8.5? tall, so I’m guessing that won’t be an option for the average house. It might even be too much for some back yards. It’s not just a bounce house and slide, though. It also has a basketball hoop attached to it, and it comes with plastic balls so you can turn it into a ball pit. It comes with a blower for inflating, and features an extra long tube (6.5 feet) so the blower can be placed somewhere other than right up against it. It’s made of puncture-resistant (they said puncture-proof, but I know children) material, and all seams are double to quadruple stitched. Setup and teardown are supposed to be easy, and it’s supposed to inflate in less than a minute. What did I miss? Let’s see…it’s got bounce, ball pit (30 balls included), climb, tunnel, basketball hoop, water gun, long slide, splash pool and velcro roof top. I think that just about covers everything, right? Oh yeah, the boring but important stuff. Recommended for ages 3 to 10. Maximum weight: 400 lbs. Maximum kids inside at the same time: 4. Maximum individual weight: 100 lbs. And it comes with a 90-day limited warranty. Now for the part that kinda sucks. It costs $459.00 US. Which isn’t all that expensive considering what you get, but might be a bit outside your current summertime fun budget. Source: Craziest Gadgets Share This With The World!
