The only thing better than barreling down a slip ‘n slide on a hot summer’s day is barreling down a super long slip ‘n slide on a hot summer’s day. That’s why we’re so excited about the Rave Sports Turbo Chute, a crazy-long slip ‘n slide that’s here just in time for summer.
The Turbo Chute is made of tear-, fade-, and puncture-resistant PVC. It has nylon inflatable wall barriers coated in PVC and an extra slippery sliding surface that minimizes friction. All of these features are pretty standard for slip ‘n slides. What sets the Turbo Chute apart is its length.
The thing is 20 feet long, giving kids (and fearless adults) the ability to slide for longer and reach higher speeds than on shorter slides.
Twenty feet is also long enough to go beyond simple sliding. If you’re lucky enough to have a lake weekend or two planned this summer, bring this thing along and angle it at the water. Kids can slide down on an inflatable sled and build up enough momentum that when they go into the water they’ll skim along like a rock thrown sidearm.
Unfortunately, all that length doesn’t come cheap. The Rave Sports Turbo Chute is available at Target for $550, a steep price that’s only worth it if you have a steep hill to set it up on.
But if you’re really, truly committed to slipping and sliding the summer away consider the even more epic — and pricier — Rave Sports Turbo Chute Lake Water Slide Package. It comes with three twenty-foot sections, a starter mat, and four sleds. It’ll run you a whopping $2000, but if you have access to a lakeside hill it’s the best way to have high adrenaline fun this summer.
