Water Slide Bounce House Guide [May 2019]

Friday, June 28, 2019

A water slide bounce house is one of the best sources of warm-weather entertainment your family will ever own.  They're affordable, convenient, and offer literally endless fun for your kids from young to old. 

But first, a quick note:  There are a lot of bounce houses on the market, with many online offerings coming out in the last year or two.  In my opinion, you can't go wrong with Blast Zone or Bounceland, and for smaller kids Little Tikes may have a lot to offer.

The Best Bounce House Water Slide:

I've reviewed plenty of water slide bounce houses.  Based on what I've read, I can easily say that the seems to be the consensus favorite on the internet.  It's quality, features and price make it an option that is hard to beat when you're looking for a bounce house water slide combo.

From my perspective, the best water slide bounce houses are:

1. Blast Zone Shark Park Inflatable Water Park Bouncer Blast Zone Shark Park Inflatable Water Park Bouncer -
2. Blast Zone Pirate Bay Inflatable Combo Bounce and Slide Water Park Blast Zone Pirate Bay Inflatable Combo Bounce and Slide Water Park $548.37
3. Little Tikes Slam 'n Curve Slide $219.99
4. Little Tikes Rocky Mountain River Race Inflatable Slide Bouncer Little Tikes Rocky Mountain River Race Inflatable Slide Bouncer $229.88

Finding the best one can be a challenge, and I'm here to try and help.  Our family only owns one of these slides, and we've only used one other model, but I've done my best to provide a decent round up of the available water slide bounce houses that are available at most locations throughout the US.

Water Slide with Bounce House Options

These are the top four options I could find for water slide bounce houses.  I've taken a look at the Amazon reviews for these and they all look pretty average overall.  No real standouts, good or bad, so I think these are all pretty average models.  In any case, here they are:

Blast Zone
  • Sets up in seconds
  • 3-person shark-tank bouncer that doubles as a ball pit
  • 3 shark-fin sprayers and 1 overhead sprayer
  • 1 fun crawl tunnel
  • 80 square-foot splash pool
Buy it on Amazon

The Blast Zone Shark Park Inflatable Water Park Bouncer is an awesome water slide bounce house.  It can handle just about anything you want to throw at it, and it's large enough to keep at least 4 or 5 kids busy with plenty of elbow room.  This is one of few models that has an actual bouncing surface integrated into a water slide - and the price reflects this.  But Blast Zone builds high quality bounce houses, and so I'm sure this one is no different.  It looks like a ton of fun.

Well, just as I say that most water slide bounce houses don't have a dedicated jumping surface, along comes the Blast Zone Pirate Bay Inflatable Combo Water Park and Bounce.  Like its cousin the Shark Park, this unit does have a large jumping surface to go along with the splash pool and water slide.  It's another fantastic, if not expensive, unit from Blast Zone.

Little Tikes Slam 'n Curve Slide

Little Tikes
  • Challenging inflatable rock wall leads to a slippery slide with a gentle curve at the end for a fun ride into the refreshing, landing pool
  • Designed so parents can see all the action!
  • Fun basketball hoop in splash pool area
  • Stakes anchor the bouncer firmly in place, while a heavy-duty blower provides continuous airflow
  • Built of puncture-resistant material
  • Inside bounce area : 85.00L x 71.00W x 46.0H inches
Buy it on Amazon

The Little Tikes Slam 'n Curve Slide is a great entry-level unit for parents with smaller kids or kids who aren't used to water slides.  It has one slide, a small splash pool area, and a basketball hoop that will keep smaller kids occupied for quite a while.  The unit only support two or three kids at a time (three assuming that they're smaller kids - three years old or so), so it's not going to be a great party inflatable, but it'll be a ton of fun regardless.

Little Tikes Rocky Mountain River Race Inflatable Slide Bouncer

  • A surprise dump bucket pours water on kids climbing up the center inflatable rock wall
  • Product Size 161.00L x 169.00 W x 103.00 H
Buy it on Amazon

The Little Tikes Rocky Mountain River Race Inflatable Slide Bouncer is basically just the Slam n Curve, times two.  It has two slides so you can have two kids playing at a time without getting in eachother's way.  It's still not a huge unit by any means so it's not the best for parties or that kind of thing, but it'll provide hours of entertainment for your family anyway, and it's a great water slide bounce house.

With all of these units, you'll easily be able to sell them online on craigslist or any other online garage sale service of your choice.  Not only did we do this with ours, but we've seen many of our neighbors doing the same thing.  Usually it's the little tikes units that end up being sold - that could just be because they're a popular brand.

Who Should Own a Bounce House Water Slide?

Finding a Bounce House with Water Slide for Sale

There are a few places that I use as my go-to's for buying bounce house water slides.  My first option is always Amazon.  Look, let's be honest here, these things don't weigh a ton in the first place, but if you have the option of having one delivered right to your door step, wouldn't you take that opportunity?

It's also nearly impossible to beat the selection on Amazon.  They have just about all the water slide bounce houses for sale that you could ever want or need.  All right at your fingertips.  It's really hard to beat.

The next place I usually go is Wal-Mart, although the selection there is drastically smaller than you'll find on Amazon.  Like, you'll be shocked, and you'll be lucky to find one or two models in store.  If you do manage to find one there, it'll usually be the top seller in the category.  This is good and bad - but hopefully it works out for you.

There is one last place I ever check to find an inflatable water slide bounce house, and that's Target.  Honestly, I've had even worse luck here than I have at Wal-Mart, but you will occasionally find a unit in store there.  They also have a decent online selection and usually have more options there than they do in the actual store.

What About a Water Slide Bounce House Combo?

The only real true water slide bounce house combo that I've seen is the shark unit from above.  It's the only unit that has a true dedicated bouncing area in addition to a pool and water slide feature.  It really looks like an awesome unit, so check out more detail below and let me know what you think of it in the comments section!

Conclusion

That's about it!  That's my quick roundup of water slide bounce houses.  I hope this guide has made it easier for you and your family to find a unit that will be entertaining and fun for many years to come.

As always, if you have any questions or anything else to say feel free to post a comment below.  I'll review them as soon as I can, and I always try to respond to all comments.  Anything you have on your mind - just let me know and I'll try to respond.

Thanks for reading and, until next time, keep bouncing!
