Water Slide Bouncer Rentals: 3 Tips for Choosing the Right One for Your Summer Event

When it’s hot outside, there’s no better way to cool off than a water slide inflatable. It’s also a great way add an element of fun and excitement to your next summer event. However, before you choose a water slide bouncer for your event, there are a few things that you should take into consideration to ensure that you choosing the right one:

Space Restrictions

One of the first things that you need to consider is the event location and how much space you have for the water slide. You need to consider both horizontal and vertical space. If you have more horizontal space and vertical room, then you need to look for a water slider that is longer than it is tall. While you may not have the thrill of a huge drop, your guests will still have the excitement of sliding through water at top speeds with a running start or with a natural slope from the ground.

Age of Guests

The age of your guests is also important when selecting a water slide. Keep in mind there is a slide out there for every age group, so don’t let this one worry you. If there will be smaller children at the event, then sliders with large vertical drops may not be a good idea. You may also want to consider themed water slides, such as Frozen. Also, younger children will find obstacle course sliders more difficult to navigate, though older kids will find them stimulating. One thing that is extremely important with younger children is that there should always be an adult supervising a water slide when it is being used.

Competition or No Competition?

During a summer event, it’s always nice to have a healthy dose of competition. However, too much of a good thing can go sorely wrong. Therefore, you need to decide whether you want to throw rivalry into your event or not. If so, you can opt for an obstacle course water slide rather than a traditional slide. These can be really great for building confidence, enhancing team building skills and just engaging flat-out competition among individuals. Just keep in mind that these slides tend to be larger than normal water sliders, so you will need to plan accordingly.
