Are you ready for a wild and crazy summer? Hot summer days and night will soon be here. Have you found a way to cool off? I’ve been wracking my brain trying to put together a schedule to keep the kids busy this summer. So far on my list I have play dates, cook outs, water parks, amusement parks… then it hit me. We can do all that right here in our own back yard. Staycation right here at home with BLAST ZONE. Blast Zone gave us the opportunity to do a review of the Great White Wild Inflatable Slide. The amount of excitement was just overwhelming and my kids and their friends couldn’t wait for it to arrive.

Blast Zone Great White Wild Inflatable Slide Review
At first glance the Great White appears to be huge! It’s actually just the right size for kids. Not to big and not to small. The slide is over 20″ long and the Great White from ground to height is about 7 feet tall and approx 6 feet wide. It weigh’s approx 50 lbs when deflated, holds up to 200 lbs and is a bit bulky to carry but it can be done even by someone of my size. It arrives in 1 large box and once unpacked you’ll have these items shown and listed below.
- 1 Great White Water slide
- 1 – 2 hose sprayer
- 8 yellow stakes
- patches and repair kit
- Blower with 2 stakes
optional: 100 play balls with carrying case
When laid out you can see that it’s long and not so wide. So if you have a narrow yard you’ll have room. Connecting the blower is easy. Simply plug it in to the yellow hose coming from the slide, secure it with a tie and turn it on. The blower must remain running during playtime and for the Great White to remain inflated.
There’s no time to lose. Are you ready for fun? Full inflation take approximately close to 2 minutes. The kids love watching it blow up but be sure to tie off all opening before inflating. I forgot to tie one of the openings and had to cut my review video clips off so I can do that. Upon touching the material you can feel the durability. Blast Zone “utilize X-Weave® material in non-impact areas, with extremely high tensile strength in all directions. Most inflatables utilize material that is stronger in one direction than the other, leading to rips, or bursts in the material. Blast Zone Commercial products are constructed with 100% commercial vinyl.”
One thing that really impressed me and I love is the safety netting outside of the climbing wall. It’s a half net wall to protect your child from slips and falls. There is also an inflatable platform at the very bottom of the wall so kids aren’t standing in the grass or land on the grass should there be a slip, the landing would be a soft one. The climbing wall foot openings are deep and the safety handles are reinforced red thick straps. This made me smile. I can tell that Blast Zone really cares about the safety of their customers and our children.
As you can see there are 8 yellow stakes provided to put into the loops around the Great White to reinforce the stability of the slide and keeping it in place during play time and possibility of windy weather and we get that a lot here in the “Windy City” Chicago. When securing the slide with the stakes I like to pull out the loop and put the stake in at an angle so it secures the loop to the ground.
The Great White Inflatable slide can be used dry or wet. It comes with a double sprayer that is easily attached at the opening of the shark mouth with velcro. The Velcro is already attached to the top and on the sprayer so a simple press was all it took to place. Next step is to secure the hose to the water hose already attached to the house. Once the water is turned on the sprayers begin to spray and splash down on the slide. The water flows down the slide to fill up the pool at the bottom of the slide.
Video Review of the Blast Zone Great White Wild Inflatable Slide
Don’t be alarmed if you see bubbles in the seam areas while it’s inflated. This is okay. A little bit of air escapes through the seam stitching in order to keep it bouncy.
Once the kids were done playing I turned off the blower and untied the two air release openings. Then I dumped the water at the bottom by tilting the area until water drained. It would be nice to have a drain opening there but it wasn’t a big deal to drain the water. Once it was fairly empty I grabbed a towel and dried the surfaces of the whole Blast Zone Great White Wild Inflatable slide. This is to keep it clean and mold free.
I then folded it (hubby came out to help me) and we put it back in the box. Unfortunately when purchased through Amazon we did not receive a storage bag to put it in but a plastic container or box works fine.
