We had a great time playing with the H2OGO! Triple Lane water slide. Our daughter absolutely loved it. It has a padded "landing" area at the back, on which you jump onto your tummy or bottom to begin your slide, a decently tight-fitting, twist-on connector to connect to your garden hose, and lots of openings to the side to allow water to sprinkle onto the slide "runway" in order to keep it wet. At the end of the "runway" is a small pool to soften your "landing" after you slide.
