Picture this: it’s 80 degrees outside, the sun is shining, and it’s time to break out the water slide. It’s hot, it’s humid, and you’re ready to cool off. You take a running start, launch yourself onto the ground, and glide down the slippery plastic in your favorite bathing suit. The wind in your hair and water splashing your face is more refreshing than a popsicle. You’re gaining speed, sliding faster and faster until you plunk into the connected dunk pool at the end. Suddenly, you’re drenched in slime! A pool full of bright green, gooey, oozing slime!
This is not your ordinary backyard water slide. It’s the H2OGO! Slime & Splash Water Slide, from Bestway—a water slide with an attached slime pool, so every rider ends his or her turn covered in slime!
Designed for kids ages 5 to 12, the slide is 23 feet long and includes built-in water sprinklers to keep it slick from start to finish. To set up, inflate the pool with an air pump (not included), insert the stakes through the holes onto the lawn to keep the slide in place, and connect to a garden hose to keep the slide wet with water. Fill the pool with water and add the four included packets of slime-making powder. Stir until the mixture becomes sticky and BAM—you’ve got yourself a real life slime pool!
Set up only takes about 10 minutes. It also comes with a stick-on repair patch if the plastic gets damaged after long days of summer fun.
Take a deep breath, clean freaks, because kids will get slimy and messy and their skin may even adopt a green tinge to it, but that’s all part of the fun. Pro tip: the more water you put into the mixture, the less sticky and gelatinous the slime will be – but don’t exceed the fill line on the pool’s interior.
This slippery slimy water slide will be the hit of all outdoor gatherings this summer, including family BBQs, pool parties, birthday parties, play dates, or pretty much any day of the week. It’s an easy way to get the kids active and playing outside. The slime is non-toxic and kid safe, and even has a pleasant soapy smell to it so it’s basically the same thing as giving the kids a bath, IMO.
Combine water slides and slime pools and what do you get? The best summer of all time.
