Best Inflatable Water Slides for the Backyard

by TerriRexson

Top pick inflatable water slides for the backyard. Great for keeping kids cool and entertained in summer.

An inflatable water slide has to be one of the most fun toys that kids can have in the backyard on a hot summers day. You can get some really fun designs too featuring pirates, crocodiles or even your very own inflatable log flume water slide!

A warning though - inflatable water slides do take some effort to maintain. You need to make sure you'll have somewhere for the water to drain. You'll have to dry the inflatable properly before putting it away to keep it in good condition. And these inflatables are heavy! New models are getting lighter, but you might need some help to move your inflatable to the garage when you're ready to put it away.

But if you're willing to put in a bit of effort, there's lots of fun to be had by the kids, which of course means more time for parents to relax.

Most water slides need power for the air blower and a hose for sprinklers or water squirters.

I've picked out some of my favorite water slides which get good reviews and look great.

Pirate Water Slide

Aargh pirates! Pirates are a recurring theme with kids. My boys love pirates and the backyard is a great place for a pirate adventure. 

This Blast Zone Pirate Bay Inflatable Combo Water Park and Bounce House combines a water slide, a bounce house and a pool area with water squirter cannons into a single inflatable. 

This water park gets good reviews and offers good value for money if you only have room for one inflatable in your backyard.

This is just good old fun isn't it! A big green inflatable double water slide that looks like a crocodile.

The climbing wall that kids use to get to the top of the slides is a cool feature. And the design means there's a nice big crocodile lagoon pool area for kids to keep cool in. 

The size of this inflatable and the dual slides means you'll be able to have friends and neighborhood kids around to play. 

It's a great way to keep kids entertained during a barbecue or family get together during nice weather too. 

And it's definitely a great feature for a kids birthday party during the summer months. You could create a whole crocodile themed party with the Crocodile Isle water park being the main attraction. 

Suitable for kids from age 3-12. Up to five kids can use the water park at the same time up to a maximum weight of 300lbs. Great for preschoolers through to tweens. 

The Inflatable Backyard Log Flume

The Inflatable Backyard Log Flume. The Inflatable Backyard Log Flume.

The inflatable backyard log flume is rather more sophisticated that your typical outdoor water slide. It uses natural colors rather than bright primary colors. 

The air blower ensures that the log flume stays fully inflated and you connect a hose to sprinklers so kids get sprayed on the way down. 

The inflatable backyard log flume is only available from Hammacher Schlemmer and comes with their lifetime guarantee - well worth having on an expensive item like a water slide. Hammacher Schlemmer choose quality products that last. 

Suitable for kids age 5-12. Ideal for primary school age kids and tweens.
