Living in Arizona we know what hot is. Summers are always hot. We are always looking for ways to keep cool. I prefer for the kids to get outside and not stay closed up inside. But to get outside the only sure way to stay cool is to get a little wet. We are one of the few people in Arizona that do not have a pool. When I was offered the opportunity to try out the Blast Zone Hydro Rush Water Park to review I jumped at the chance.
You might remember that we did have the opportunity to try the Blast Zone Pirate Blaster Inflatable Water Park last year. We love it, but it is a big large. Sometimes we want something with a little easier set up and take down. So given the chance to try the Hydro Rush Water Park I though for sure it would be perfect. Also, with Jayden's birthday I think it will be great!
The Hydro Rush Inflatable Water Park is a 10 foot curved slide. It has 2 overhead sprayers and a generous landing splash area. The climbing wall is a fun way to get to the top. There is also a spray cannon in the splash area. The water hose easily attaches with velcro all along the way from the top of the slide along the bottom to the water cannon. Since it is all a circular layout players can slide and make their way through the splash area back to the climbing wall, all without getting in the grass and causing debris in the water for a cleaner inflatable. It is made from commercial grade vinyl and is built to last. The slide has high rails for a safer slide. The splash area does not pool over 6" for safety. If the water keeps running it can't fill more than the 6" as the side has a drop down to release any extra water.
Jayden has always been my cautious child. He was a little hesitant at first. But with a little encouragement he tried the slide. After the first try would could not get him to stop. He was loving it. He even got a little daring to slide him on his tummy. Evan didn't want to try the slide just yet, but he loved playing in the splash area. I love that he can have just as much fun splashing around in the splash area. I can also get in the splash area with him and play. He wanted to wait at the bottom of the slide many times to watch his big brother slide. Jayden can't wait to share his new slide with his friends. We will most definitely have this out for his 7th birthday party next month.
I really like that Blast Zone includes everything you need. It comes with the water park itself, the hose attachment for water, the blower, a storage bag, stakes for both the water park and the blower, and an instructional DVD. The water park itself easily fits into the bag with a little work on folding. My only complains would be that the cord for the blower is a little short. Just because of the position where the blower must go the cord is pulled a little tight at my house. Although I found out that you can purchase a longer cord for an additional cost. Overall I think this is a great water slide for home use. I have 2 boys, both with summer birthdays, so we will get lots of use of this slide. And figuring the cost is well worth it over renting one. I looked at rental prices of different water slides. The cheapest I could find was about $150 for the day. If you wanted it for a couple of birthdays you could take that money and just buy one for use anytime. It makes so much more sense to buy rather than rent.
