Own your own waterslide!!

Tuesday, May 4, 2004 8:48 PM
Six flags Is making its possible for everyone to own their own waterslide. Im starting to think that walmart has some type of ties w/ the six flags chain. Pretty soon every walmart will have their own six flags in the parking lot!! Or even better six flags will make it possible to have a theme park in our back yards!!!

Umm read the info dude, It says right on the page it's only 6 feet tall. Why would they let little 4 year olds on something 20 feet tall. They'd get sued in a heartbeat. Heck when they had those inflatable slide things which are a good 20 feet tall at our dances way back in Junior High they made us sign Liability Waivers so that we could sue them if we got hurt. Next Time actually read the article before you are going to lie.

Slight correction the slide is 10ft tall, the drop 6ft. Gotta add the elevation of the pool at the bottom.

I think the slide is sweet. It looks like theres a lot more you could do on it than just slide down...roughing around wise i mean. They really use small kids to try and make the slide look bigger than it really is. Less than 300 bucks, not a bad price.

People need to stop sueing other people for things that aren't neccesary, and need to stop making problems for everyone else just because their dumba**es.

In a rather affluent neighborhood near me there is a home in the final stages of completion with what looks like a small waterpark in the backyard. There are two fully enclosed waterslides each appearing to be at least 50 yards long...maybe more with twists and turns leading to the pool. There is a themed poolhouse that looks like a moutain and the slides come off the top of it.

At first glance I thought it was a community center of some type until I realized it was some kid's really cool backyard.

"You will need a garden hose and an electrical outlet to use this slide"

This sounds like my kind of fun! :)

I've noticed in our local Wally World that TONS of Six Flags themed water toys have popped up lately. There is one called a Sting Ray, a few different kinds of water slides and I think a Shouka (sp) type lounger or something. Pretty neat if you have young ones.

TD, 10 feet tall is the height of the arch at the top, the top of the slide is 6ft and the "pool" is about 2-2.5ft. I saw it at my local Walmart on Sunday.

I don't know about that... Slip and slides were pretty painful.

I just wanted to be the third person to point this out. "You will need a garden hose and an electrical outlet to use this slide"

When I was little I had a cheap version of the slip and slide, it was called the wet banana. I'd prefer the slide.
