The Banzai Sidewinder Falls is a mini water
park for younger children (5 onwards). Not just a water slide but three water activities in one. This will
give children hours of fun in the warm summer months when they love to play and splash around in water.
As the name suggests the Banzai Sidewinder Falls is a curving water slide with banked or cambered wall for
an extra thrilling ride. This is the focal point of the inflatable toy but there are two other activities that will
keep children amused and occupied. There is the climbing wall that let's them access to the top of the slide. There
is a tunnel under the slide that leads to a diving ramp. Kids can play on both of these slides, the big slide is
approximately 10 ft. 5 in. long. The diving ramp is about a third of this length. Both the main waterslide and the
ramp lead to a splash pool that is filled with water and slows the speed of the person as they enter the pool
from the two slides.
The Sidewinder Falls is the 2009 version (latest version) which has been improved in various ways over previous
models. The biggest problems with this water slide and all inflatable products like this is the durability. People
feel cheesed off if the slide springs a leak or gets a tear in it after only a few days use but this is highly
likely given that children will be jumping on and off of it all the time. Consequently new versions work on
improving the design and material to give the slide more strength and durability.
In the case of the Banzai Sidewinder Falls water slide heavy-duty Dura-Tech material ( PVC-coated 420D Terylene)
is used on areas that are likely to experience the most friction. This means the handles on the climbing wall, the
foot holes, the archway at the top of the slide and the side walls on the slide. The actual slide surface is made
of PVC-coated polyester tarpaulin. The material is UV resistant to prevent damage from sunlight.
The Sidewinder is inflated using a blower that is supplied with the product. This is the best part about
Banzai water slides. Regardless of the size of the item, it can be inflated by the supplied in under 5 minutes.
This means the kids can be out a playing in next to no time at all.

As you can see the kids will get quite a buzz out of the slide, either on their back or front. It's not really
designed for adults but it seems like it will work if you want to take a baby down and go gently. The dive
ramp is not really used in this video but I'm sure the kids will get to exploring it pretty soon. Check out This
