With the increasing amounts of chlorine used in our neighborhood pools, I wanted a wet alternative for our kids right in my own backyard. The Banzai Speed Slide Water Park is amazing! It provides hours of safe, wet fun (not to mention great exercise) without all of the germs and safety hazards of a public pool. I have no fears when my children run on this mini water park...that's half the fun! It truly is like having our very own water park! Our kids' friends and friends' kids all love it! The Banzai Speed Slide inflates in under five minutes, the exact time is probably closer to about three minutes. So, it's perfect for spur of the moment decisions for activities. I love that I don't have to commit an entire day to blowing it up. It also has continual airflow, so there's no need to keep reinflating it. The designers really thought of everything. This whole system has so many fun options, including everything from a climbing wall, spraying arches and a little pool to splash in at the bottom!
