I remember one of my friends got one of these. We were all excited, but no matter where we put it on the yard there was always a rock somewhere underneath the slide ready to smash our knees. After half an hour 3 kids were bleeding and there were pinkish blood streaks all over the slide =(

This is one of those toys that NEVER works as well as in the commercial. My friend had one, and it was near-impossible to find soft, smooth, level ground to get a good speed up, so at best you'd slide really tepidly and come to a stop at the bump.

I grew up in Philadelphia. None of my friends had these because nobody had a lawn. Not that we wouldn't have tried sliding down the sidewalk if our parents had bought one.

We had a decent rock free hill with a regular slip n slide, the only problem was that while the ride was fast on the hill, you'd keep going right off the end and quickly skid to a stop in the soggy grass that was instantly worn down to mud and twigs.

I had one of these growing up. My cousins and I got better use out of it when we lined it up so the splash pool was actually floating in our grandparents swimming pool.

Oh man, I totally wanted one of these too. All my parents got me was a not nearly as cool Slip and Slide.

I think Wet Banana was the Canadian version of Slip N' Slide (it came with a banana-shaped hose attachment and that's how you could tell them apart). Can anyone confirm this?

We had both up here.

I love how they stop the footage riiiight at the moment the kids are about to hit the dirt.

Would be better known as "Lawsuit Machine."

My cousin had one when we were kids; the splash pool was an estimated landing zone only.

What the hell is a boomerang bump?

I had one of these. I's pretty much a bruise-maker. Awesome fun though.

Related story:

My cousin lives out in he country and he is in the process of building the ultimate slip n slide. He's dug a big smooth trench down this hill and into a field, and he bought some plastic sheeting to line it with. It's about 70 yards long, and you cover your body in oil and take off running towards it. It is truly epic. He wants to make three different ones, with windy and bumpy courses for the extra adventurous.

Yeah, he's a cool dude.

I remember this, but we too, only had the Slip n' Slide. I'd like to see one in action at my house. The hill is so steep, you'd just keep going and going, long after you've been digested by the crocodile. The best part is that the hill would abruptly cut off, and then you'd go shooting off a cliff, down the side of a mountain and onto the highway.

Crocodile Mile...littered with dreams and bones, all broken.

Caminante Nocturno - 2008-08-23

That is not an effective way to escape any predator.

Camonk - 2008-08-23

And the boomerang bump doesn't actually return you anywhere. Nor does it return to you. This whole thing is a mess, really.

He's training how to jump DIRECTLY into the croc's mouth!!

Muddy Mae Suggins - 2008-08-23

Our Slip n' Slide worked pretty well, as long as you used a whole bottle of dish soap to grease it. That is also a good way to get out of taking a bath later.

Daymage - 2008-08-24

Splash-down pool!

We had goddamn garbage bags and a hose that we tried our best to make into a slip-n-slide but the garbage bags would always get all bunched up and you'd be sliding on wet grass and/or dirt and we'd be all skinned and bloody by the end of it AND WE LIKED IT.
