If underwater pogo-sticking isn’t your style of extreme summer fun, there are plenty of other ways to get your dose of cool water in the summer heat while putting your precious body at risk. Trampolines aren’t the safest of activities even when they aren’t soaked in a layer of fall-inducing water, but add a little bit of slip-and-slide fun, and you have yourself a toy made for the most daring of kids.
The 13′ Big Wave Trampoline mixes the fun of jumping up and down over and over again at unsafe heights with the slippery nature of a puddle of water. The tramp is usable dry as well, but the real fun begins after you whip out the hose and fill the trampoline to its water volume capacity.
The Big Wave Trampoline is made with 11 gauge fully galvanized steel, so harmful rust shouldn’t be an issue with the water soaked tramp. The frame stands 35″ high (which could do some serious damage on impact if you were to slip right off), but promises that its 9″ tapered springs, which are completely covered by padding, provide a safe experience.
For such a risky experience you’ll have to shell out $1195, not to mention any sort of insurance fees you want to add to your plan, just in case your kid takes a nosedive off the side of the trampoline. Though the splashing water is a pretty cool dose of summer fun if you don’t feel like shelling out for a pool.
