The Rainforest Rapids Bounce House and Water Park can be easily set up by one adult. Set up time is under five minutes with actual inflation time taking less then two minutes. Once inflated, the bright colors will draw every ones attention. Make no mistake, as great as this inflatable looks, its performance is even better.
This bouncer has a footprint of 16′ x 15′ and requires a flat area of approximately 21′ x 20′ feet. With an 8′ x 8′ bounce are and two slides, the ball pit pool area is often over looked. This waiting area was perfect for kids as they entered the bounce house or exited the slides. This area gives the bouncer an extra activity to keep the play time organized. This is not wasted space. Kids can enter the bounce house via the ramp entry. This ramp entry makes the bounce house more accessible to younger children making easier for them to get in and out. The Rainforest Rapids 8′ x 8′ bounce area is plenty big for 3 or 4 bouncers under the age of 12 and weigh under 100 lbs to jump and play. When the kids are done jumping they can either exit via the ramp entry or climb up to either one of the slides. The slides can be used wet or dry. If you choose to use the slides wet, the misting kit hooks up right on top of either slide. While the slides can be used wet or dry, we found the performance to be a little bit better when they were used wet. The water made the surface slicker and quicker. It is important to note, if you decide to use the Rainforest Rapids wet, you need to make sure that the unit is fully dried prior to storing. This can be accomplished by a combination of the sun and the airflow of the blower. From experience, I recommend keeping the unit inflated until it is completely dried.

I recommend this inflatable to families that are interested in having a bouncer slide combo and a water slide. No need to have multiple units when the Rainforest Rapids can serve both needs.
