This is the first inflatable Banzai water slide. It first debuted in 2006 and, dare I say, made a huge splash in the toy market.
The Banzai Falls Original Water Slide is a slippy one lane slide. The length of the slide is 18 ft 6 in which gives children from 5 and up a good run. The manufacturer says that it is aimed 5 years and up through to teenagers but many reports suggest that the slide is not really long enough for older children and adults. Children access the top of the slide via a climbing wall at the back of the slide. Foot holes in the wall allow the kids to climb up. The slide leads to a splash pool where your children can stop safely and exit. There is a water attachment on the archway at the top of the slide that provides continuous water flow so that the slide remains slippy. This ensures a great ride and less chance of damaging the material due to friction.
With this said, the manufacturer has used heavy duty, durable materials to make the waterslide that should withstand the type of wear and tear that can be expected. Heavy-duty Dura-Tech ( PVC-coated 420D Terylene) is used on the climbing wall, arch top, walls, and rails. The slide itself is constructed using PVC-coated polyester tarpaulin that serves as a perfect material for sliding on yet has enough strength to withstand the usual wear and tear. On this point, there are numerous comments from owners of the water slide that suggest it does not have good durability.
The slide uses an air blower system which comes with the purchase. The air blower is used to inflate the waterslide. This can be done in 2 minutes and the slide can be ready for action in under 5 minutes once you have done it a few times. There are base water bags that are used to add stability to the structure once it is inflated. There are also ground stake loops at the base on each side wall to allow you to secure the structure to the ground.
