There’s nothing quite like inflatable water slides for enjoying time outside and capitalizing on the nice summer weather. Inflatable waterslides are a great way for children to be active while soaking up some vitamin D in the backyard.
In this article, we look at some of the best inflatable slides out there for your pool.
WOW Watersports Slide N Smile
The WOW Watersports Slide N Smile is a massive inflatable water slide composed of extra-durable PVC. This 108-inch long, 84-inch wide, and 50-inch high slide has two lanes for simultaneous play, making it ideal for a race to the bottom. This slide made our list because of a few unique qualities. It is ideal for poolside, but it also works well on a pier close to a lake. Two grommets on the side of the slide make tying off a breeze, ensuring that your slide stays put.
Another notable feature is the zippered connection system, which allows users to connect their slides to other WOW items, such as the 10-by-six foot Water Walkway or the six-by-six foot Water Mat. To make an inflatable water obstacle course, purchase as many as you want and connect them together.
Intex Inflatable Play Center
Another great pool slide choice is the Intex Inflatable Play Center. This slide is 20-gauge vinyl with blue or red wave patterns. It is designed for people over six and has a 176-pound weight limit. This slide is excellent for younger kids and teens, but most adults won’t be able to use it.
Inflatable stepping mats, five air chambers, six heavy-duty handles, high sides, inset footholds, and built-in sprayers keep the surface wet for easy sliding. Its dimensions are 46 inches tall, 131 inches long, and 144 inches wide.
You must install it on the ground and only use it with a pool, and you should not use it as a dry slide.
Swimline Super Slide
The Swimline Super Slide is another inflatable slide that you can use with either an above-ground or in-ground pool. For increased durability, it is composed of thick vinyl. A weighted water foundation ensures that the slide stays in place, and it also includes high inflated side walls to prevent people from falling off.
You will need a manual or electric air pump for installation, and one is usually not supplied with the slide. Once inflated, the pump does not need to keep running. Several seals keep the air in until you’re ready to let it out.
The Super Slide is 99 inches long, 68 inches wide, and 40 inches tall, with a load limit of 150 pounds. It’s meant for one person at a time, and you must always go feet first.
Jungle River Ride
The Jungle River Ride is the finest inflatable water slide for inground swimming pools. It includes many sprinklers, is nine feet long, and is perfect for children of all ages.
The slide has double sprinklers to make it slick and wet and high walls to protect anyone from slipping off. It has a great appeal for children of all ages due to its unique designs and layout.
It holds up to 180 pounds, so it’s suitable for teenagers and even some adults, and it is certified by both the American Toy Safety Management (ASTM) and European Safety Management Organization (ESMO).
Although not provided, an air pump is required to set it up. With a 42-inch-wide sliding surface, this slide is 84 inches wide, 132 inches long, and 60 inches tall when fully expanded.
Costzon Inflatable Water Slide 5-in-1
With a climbing wall, pouring sink, spray heads, water cannon, and basketball hoop included, the Costzon Inflatable Water Slide is all a pool slide should be. The slide’s heavy-duty 800D Oxford material is puncture-resistant and has a 420D oxford water-resistant exterior coating for long-term use. It includes a carrying bag, hose, seven ground stakes, and a hole repair kit.
The slide is easy to set up and take down because it inflates and deflates in under two minutes. You’ll require sufficient flat land to secure this pool down and make it safe to use. When it’s folded, it measures 186.5 inches by 102.5 inches by 95 inches and weighs only 16 pounds.
Although it has a load capacity of 150 pounds, you should divide this among two to three younger children below 50 pounds instead of one big youngster.
Slam Curve Slide for Little Tikes
The Slam Curve Slide for Little Tikes is great for kids aged five to ten. It has a rock wall climb up to the slide, which has a gradual bend at the end and lowers into a constructed pool with a connected basketball hoop. With sufficient room in the wading pool to play or shoot hoops, this inflatable pool slide is perfect for engaging up to three kids. Easy entry and exit are made possible by the low sidewalls.
Its overall weight limit is 350 pounds, and its dimensions are 168 inches long, 108 inches wide, and 84 inches tall.
Before you use this slide, you must anchor it in place. It also needs a constant blower to keep it inflated, but the good thing is that it comes with not only a blower but also a GFCI outlet and ten stakes, four for the blower and six for the bouncer, as well as a storage bag, inflatable basketball, and repair kit. The blower comes with a warranty of one year, and the inflatable slide has one that’s ninety days.
Splash Slide at Sportspower Twin Peaks
The Splash Slide at Sportspower Twin Peaks is another multi-activity inflatable slide with a built-in pool, spray heads, dual water cannons, two slides, and a climbing wall. It is designed for children aged three to eight and has a weight limit of 250 pounds. This slide can accommodate up to six children, and you need a big garden to accommodate the 163.2-inch length, 159.6-inch width, and 96-inch height.
The accompanying constant GFCI-protected air blower allows parents to set it up in less than two minutes, and it also includes a storage bag, repair kit, and pegs to keep the slide in place.
This slide can sustain regular hard use thanks to the puncture-proof fabric covered in PVC. Most importantly, this product complies with ASTM safety regulations.
