Cooling Off Has Never Been More Fun- Blast Zone Hydro Rush Inflatable Water Park Review and Bounce House #Giveaway

Hydro Rush Inflatable Water ParkWe were sent the following product for review purposes.  All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

We live in Arizona, where it’s warm pretty much year round. Since we are a family that loves the outdoors (and being in the water) this works pretty well for us. Unfortunately, there are times (especially in the summertime) when the only time it’s bearable to be outdoors is if we’re in the water.  We have a few friends who have a swimming pool, plus there’s the community pools, splash pads and water parks in a very short distance from our home, but those still require a drive (and sometimes a fee) to be able to enjoy them.  What we needed was something we could enjoy in the comfort of our own home.   What could be more fun than our very own Inflatable Water Park?!

I know most of the country experienced a very cold, very snowy Winter. Here in Arizona we didn’t experience much of a Winter at all and we’ve had nice, warm temperatures, (which means we’ll be experiencing plenty of scorching temperatures come summertime- boo). When we received the Blast Zone Hydro Rush Inflatable Water Park a couple of weeks ago we got started right away getting it set up and enjoy the fun!

Hydro Rush Water ParkThe Blast Zone Hydro Rush Inflatable Water Park has a water slide, splash pool, water cannon and climbing wall, offering up tons of splashing fun! And the Hydro Rush has enough room for up to 6 kids to splash, climb, slide and play all day- it’s the perfect size for my 4 kiddos plus a few of their friends!

I was a bit intimidated by the size of the box and the items inside, but was relieved to see a booklet with instructions as well as a DVD if I needed a little extra assistance.  However, I soon realized it would be very simple to set up (and I only needed to glance at the directions a few times). 

Hydro Rush piecesAt 60 pounds it wasn’t very difficult to move around, and once I had it unfolded and placed where I wanted it I got started.  It was clear where the blower needed to go, so I got that placed and turned it on.  I had every intention of taking a few photos as it was blowing up, but I had no time; This huge structure (18 feet in length, 11 feet in width, and 8 feet in height) literally inflated in less than a minute or two!  Of course this was good for me because the kids were already antsy with anticipation. 

Kids and Hydro RushOnce it was all inflated I got out the stakes to get it all staked down and in place. One thing I found a bit awkward was the placement of the stakes for the blower.  It’s necessary to use a small hammer to pound down the stakes, but the motor was in the way for me to be able to get the front stake in very well.  After a bit of fiddling I was finally able to get it to work well enough to move on.

Next I needed to fasten on the sprayer system, which attaches easily using the Velcro strips. 

Sprayer System VelcroThe sprayer system attaches to a standard garden hose, which will slowly and constantly feed the sprayer system, lubricating the slide, feeding water to the cannon, and allow the splash pools to fill with water.  It has a built-in flow restriction to help minimize water use, so I don’t have to worry so much about the water bill being crazy high- phew!

garden hose attachmentSplash areas are not “pools” in the strict sense. For the safety of the little guys, Blast Zone created the splash areas to have water outlets, which retain just enough water to splash around without creating any risks to the little ones.  My kids loved this because it was deep enough that they could splash around in, or lay down and get pretty wet.  I appreciate that it’s shallow enough that when my niece and nephews are over, my 1 year old niece can play in safety as well (under supervision, of course).

A tough climbing wall (with sturdy handles and holes to place the feet) stretches to the top of the slide where two overhead sprayers rain down.

Sturdy HandlesFrom there the kids can zoom along the long curved slide into the splash pool, and since the slide is 9 feet 9 inches long it’s plenty of fun for my 9-year-old all the way down to my 3-year-old.  There’s an inside return path so my kids don’t need to exit the pool to get to the slide, meaning less grass and debris in the play area and an easier clean up for mom!

The kids had such a blast going down the slide. 

slidinghaving a blastAnd as you can see in the photo below they loved the water cannon as well, and raced to use it to spray the person who went down the slide after them.

Water CannonThe kids had a blast playing on this, but this particular day it was *only* 74 degrees outside so after about 30 minutes of play only 2 of 7 kids remained playing. You can tell they’re Arizona natives!! 

colddie-hardsLife has been busy enough the last couple of weeks that we’ve been unable to set it up again, but the kids have been begging daily none-the-less, and the weather is in the 80’s now so it’ll be warmer for them too. I know once school is out in a few weeks they’ll be on it daily (and mama will be thrilled that they’ll be enjoying the outdoors, wearing themselves out, and still keeping cool)!

Taking down the Hydro Rush can be a bit tricky. It deflates pretty quickly which is nice, but it is very important that you do not pack it away while still wet because you will risk mold growth. Nobody wants that! What I did was deflate it to allow the water to run out. There is one area of the inflatable that the water drains from, so once the majority of the water drained out I lifted and maneuvered the rest of it to get the water to all run to that one area to drain.

Quick DrainingI then laid it out on a dry area of the yard to dry overnight. The next day I found a few spots that were still damp, so I waited until those dried, then flipped the Hydro Rush over so the bottom could dry.  Then we folded and rolled it up to get it in the included carrying case.  It took a few tries to get it folded (and enough air out) to get it to fit in the carrying case, but it’s so nice to have it all in one place and not splayed out or in a mess of a pile somewhere.

My busy, crazy kids will be spending hours upon hours playing on this thing, so I’m happy to know that Blast Zone has strict quality and safety standards. This Hydro Rush Inflatable Water Park is constructed using double and quadruple stitched, reinforced polyester oxford, and commercial-grade vinyl is used on the climbing and slide surfaces, adding extra strength and longer life to the unit. 

The kids can’t wait to get out there and playing on the Hydro Rush, and I’m thrilled to have this fun water park right in our backyard! Check out Blast Zone to see this awesome Hydro Rush Inflatable Water Park, as well as all of the other inflatable water parks and bounce houses available for purchase and use at your own home! If you’re looking for commercial inflatables, Blast Zone has many of those available for purchase too!
