The Tsunami Waves Summit is a water park suited for groups, parties and memorable events. The next addition for your barbeque birthday or block party is here! The park features two slides with safety bumpers so kids can race all day long. Each slide features a soft water blob landing for instant joy. There's plenty to explore with an extra-large play pool, tunnel and ball hoop. The pool can be used to cool off before another trip down the slide. It also features a built-in water blaster for soaking friends - just point and spray! The ball hoop and tunnel will keep everyone entertained as they take turns on the slide. Reach the park summit via climbing wall with hand grips and footholds. The wall leads to the tower deck that's secured with mesh walls for stability and safety. The park meets all ATSM safety standards and is constructed of PVC-coated polyester material that is durable but provides a comfortable feel and touch for kids. The heavy-duty 110-120V blower with GFCI safety plug inflates the water park in less than two minutes.
This slide was fun for the little bit it worked, but it quickly broke. Several seems ripped apart the first time we used it and the slide area has literally blown up into a big balloon, instead of a slide. It's terrible to use, you fill up these pieces with water that get placed at the end of the slide...they popped the first time we used it. Water just runs off into the grass, not into the pool and it's a muddy mess. Terrible to put away, grass and mud are everywhere, it doesn't dry etc. It was absolutely NOT worth the money and I wish we could return it!
Great fun the first time, but quickly you see the flaws.
We’ve used it twice, and in tandem with our neighbor’s inflatable slide they’ve had for 3 years.
Both times, ours used way more water and caused tons of grass damage compared to theirs, and ours is already taking on water inside the inflatable parts because the seams aren’t water tight.
I would return this if I could, because the quality is not worth $500.
The design flaws are the same as others mentioned - water wasting because it doesn’t flow into the side pool, impossible to dry out the landing pads that have to be filled with water, and you can’t leave the pool full for later use without the pool dumping out instantly. So much waste, so much mud, so much grass damage. And the seams are leaking inwards, making it impossible to break down because the air chambers fill with water, which you can’t dump out.
Don’t make this mistake - find another design.
This slide is awesome at first glance. My kids had a great time while it lasted. However, there are many flaws. 1. The water from the slides doesn’t go into the side pool. Not only is a ton of water wasted, it creates a huge puddle at the end of the slide. 2. There are 2 pieces that fill with water and go at the end of the slide. I’m not sure the point, but they’re a pain. You have to empty them every time and it’s difficult to get the water out. I actually returned ours because after just 2 weeks, one of those pieces split at the seam so water would leak out. It’s not really possible to use the slide without them. 3. If you turn it off, all of the water falls out of the pool area. No way to keep that water in. 4. It’s difficult to put away. Takes hours to dry out.
Overall I do not recommend. Get one where the water from the slide is recycled. Kuddos to Target for letting me return it without any issues. I didn’t have the box or my receipt, just the card I purchased it with.

We have had kids from age 2 - 8 all enjoy playing on this for many hours at a time. I was worried that my own kids (3 & 5) would get bored, but have continued to enjoy it daily for the last 2 weeks.
I knocked a star off because of what I consider a design flaw. there is constant running water over the slides, and there is no collection area at the bottom of the slide, which means A LOT of water going to waste into the grass. It would have been great if the side pool was continued into the bottom of the slides. We have overcome this by putting a separate small blow up pool we have under here. Please note also, that you can't really leave this up. For example if we wanted to play in the morning and evening and not mid day, there are 2 options: 1) leave the blower function running even when not in use or 2) turn blower off after session #1 (all water drains from pool) and reset it all up again.
Purchased this item yesterday! Set it up this afternoon. We purchased a big tarp to put under for extra precaution. The kids have played and played all day. Love this. Was definitely worth the money just to see my babies have so much fun. It is actually bigger than what I thought it would be as well. Super easy to set up as well.
We did not even get to use this item. We got it out of the box, my fiance and I set it up, and it was coming apart at the seems. We had to take it back. We opted our money back instead of a replacement.
