A Home Water Slide can Help You with Your Summer Vacation Budget

By: Robin Buckley

Summer time is upon us and the kids are out of school. That means it is time for some summer fun. Kids dream of being at the water park and sliding down a big water slide. And why not, what could be more fun than splashing the summer away.
Children wait for these long summer days with great anticipation. It is easy to understand why. Cold winters and spring showers leave kids cooped up inside with computer and video games, homework and boredom. Summer means outdoor fun, swimming pools, baseball parks amusement parks and water parks. What could be more fun?
Well in this tough economy, it can be a little hard to come up with the cash for these types of summer pleasures, especially if you have more than one child. One outing to a family amusement park can cost a family of four over $200.00 when you consider the cost of gas, food entrance fees and the little extras that are always marketed there.
More and more families are turning to their own backyards for family fun. The economy is forcing people to stay home this summer but that does not mean you have to abandon good old fashion summer fun.
Water parks are a big attraction for kids, and it is entirely possible to turn your back yard into a wonderful water park.
The inflatable water slide has greatly improved since the days of the slip and slide. Today, manufactures of water slides have created large blow-up inflatables and a water slide can now have a large drop down to it, unlike the earlier models that were flat on the ground.
A residential water slide can also come with multiple slide lanes, providing room for more kids, and the opportunity to have fun races to the finish.
There are many choices when picking out an inflatable water slide. They come in the shape of castles, lions, puppies, monkeys speedways, and ocean waves. There are so many to choose from and that can be the hardest part.
You do not have to stop at the water slide since some units will come with other play areas attached. You can get them outfitted with a bounce house or an obstacle course, and there are some models that will come with both, bounce house and obstacle course, providing an expanded play area.
But who says you have to have just one inflatable water slide? If you have the space you can turn your backyard into a full fledged water park of your very own. You will undoubtedly be the most popular family in the neighborhood.
Having your very own bounce house and water slide or even your own water park can be a great alternative to all the money you can squander away this summer at the traditional amusement and water parks.
