It used to be that only the wealthy could own a water slide in the backyard. Well, now virtually anyone can have an easy to use, thrilling slide that can be set up in minutes! Thanks to the good people at Banzai, backyard water sliding is now possible. Inflatable water slides may sound like a pain to inflate, but an electric blower takes care of all the work for you in mere minutes. Just find a place of flat, level ground and your Banzai water slides can be ready in no time. Slides like these are great for livening up birthday parties, or simply having a relaxing afternoon with the kids. Read on to learn more about two of these cool inflatable slides.
Banzai Falls, The Original:
While the Banzai Falls has been out for some years, you can still find it at select online retailers. The Banzai Falls water slide is a true classic and is still enjoyed by many people across the country. This mid-range slide has a ten foot tall climbing wall on the back which leads up to a sitting area on the top. Kids can sit for a moment at the top before sliding down the 18 foot long water slide. The slide can be used dry, but becomes incredibly slippery and fun when wet. Just connect your water hose to the slide and turn on the valve. Water flow rate can be adjusted to suit.
After sliding down the incline, kids will experience a big splash as their feet hit the wading pool. This pool holds less than a foot deep of water and is safe for small children to use under supervision. When not sliding, kids can splash water at each other from this small pool. Durability is ensured with the slide’s durable fabric materials.
The blower motor remains on during the entire use, keeping the slide firm and inflated. Air is pumped into the slide at a high flow rate. The long cable attached to the blower plugs into any outdoor power terminal.
Sidewinder Banzai Falls Water Slide:
The Sidewinder has an added twist on water sliding, adding on an extra slide and a huge water pool. After climbing up the rock wall, kids can make their way through the tunnel and down the diving ramp. Another trip up the wall gives them the additional choice of sliding down the curved slide. Both slides empty out into the water pool at the bottom, which is exceptionally huge. The landing pad is soft as to protect the user’s feet. A sixty pound water bag (when filled) keeps the whole slide stable and in place.
Bright orange, blue and yellow colors give this slide a distinct look. A powerful blower fan is includes and even has a long power cord. After sprawling the slide out onto the ground, just connect the motor and turn it on. The slide will be inflated in minutes. When done, untie the closed tubes to release the air. The slide should be left to dry out for several hours before packing it into the bag.
