Summer officially begins this Thursday, but, in many areas of the country, it already feels like the inside of a mouth outside. In other words, it’s time to bust out the water guns, water balloons, sprinklers, inflatable unicorns and every keep-cool kid’s accessory you have. If you’re looking to add another to the mix, Target is having a nice sale on the Magic Time Mega Tornado Twist. While, its name sounds like some new Taco Bell menu item. But the inflatable structure is a self-contained waterpark that fits in your backyard.
The Mega Tornado Twist features a long, curved slide, a large splash pool, two water sprayers that douse kids at the top and bottom of the slide, and, best of all, a working water cannon that will definitely be used to soak you while you’re watching the action from the sidelines. The entire apparatus measures 14.5 feet x 9.5 feet and stands eight feet tall. It’s made of machine woven PVC fabric and featuring double-stitching on the seams for added durability. And, because it would take a lifetime to blow this thing up with your mouth, includes a high-speed blower that inflates the entire structure in less than two minutes.
The Mega Tornado Twist only has six reviews, but all are five stars. “We bought this yesterday and are already on use number 2!,” wrote one reviewer. “My kids (ages 4 and 5) love it. I was hesitant about the price, but so far it’s been worth it. Easy setup, easy take down!” Another user added that, while the top tubing is a bit annoying to attach, the entire setup is pretty easy. So, if you’re looking for a new summer accessory to keep the kids (or, who are we kidding, yourself) cool, it seems like a solid buy. Normally $350, it’s on sale today for $298.
