The Best Slip N’ Slides – Block Party Activities

Is everyone ready for a wet and wild ride?  I remember those words as a kid and always looked forward to those special summer days when my parents set up the Slip N’ Slide.  Trying to see who could slide the furthest on those hot afternoons created endless fun.  Not everyday is a pool day and nothing is more fun than laughing at your friends as they cool off and have fun doing it. Today there are numerous slides to choose from and it’s hard to decide which one is the best. We’ll help narrow down your decision.  Would you prefer the basic one that takes only minutes to hook up or the crazy elaborate ones that would be the hit of any neighborhood or party.  So are you ready for a wet and wild ride?!!
