Gigantic Water Play Slide: Take a Ride on this Slide!

From Hammacher Schlemmer, this slide is like no other! Like the name suggests, the Gigantic Water Play Slide is ginormous! It stands 16 feet tall and is made out of a heavy-duty, commercial-grade, 1,000 denier polyester fabric. Just like the U.S. Navy Seals, the material is actually layered between two 28 ounce PVC layers.

The inside of the slide is good size too. It measures about 10 feet long x 12 wide by 6 feet high so tall people should fit right in! The 4 steps will take you to the top of the slide. Just hang onto the 12 heavy-duty plastic handles on your way up. The slide is about 500 pounds, when fully inflated. That's an awful lot of huffin' and puffin' if you don't own a few air pumps. But tear down is simple. The slide fully deflates in about half an hour and includes a handy storage bag for the off-season.

But hang onto your swimming trunks.  This Gigantic Water Play Slide has a gigantic price tag. Retailing for about $9,000, this water slide may be out of reach for most of us, but for the kids who have everything, oh what a ride!  But fair warning, folks. If you plan to fork out the bucks for the Gigantic Water Play Slide, be prepared for the onslaught of neighborhood kids.
