11 Insane Aquatic Toys You Can Buy
Forget pool noodles and squirt guns—these aquatic accessories will help take your water activities to the next level (provided you can afford them...).
1. Lake Trampoline, $1800 - $3700
Get real height on your cannonballs with this lake trampoline, which comes in three sizes: 12, 15, and 20 feet.
2. The Inflatable Water Shooting Float, $60
Bring the carnival directly to your pool with Space Shootout, which is equipped with two squirt cannons that draw a steady supply of water from the pool via flexible tubes. The goal is to displace the balls by shooting water into the cylinder; the first person to eject all six balls from their cylinder wins.
3. Floating Tiki Bar, $160
Why leave the water to make a drink when you can buy this 7.5-foot-tall inflatable tiki bar and whip up cocktails in the pool? The bar has six drink holders and two ice storage bins; we suggest serving drinks in these floating glasses.
4. Aquaglide Rockit, $2300
This 14 foot wide, 5.5 foot high water rocker promises to provide “unlimited fun” for two to eight people. The goal is to work together, or against each other, to balance and tip the rocker.
5. Texas Hold ‘Em Inflatable Poker Set, $66
Set this table up in your pool and find out who the card shark really is. The nearly 4.5 by 4.5 foot table comes with 200 poker chips, a deck of waterproof cards and a dealer button, and has four chip storage areas, four cup holders, and four floating lounges. The lounges aren’t attached, so you can use them on their own, though one Amazon reviewer noted that “it's a bit difficult to sit in the ‘chairs’ and play cards. Everyone has to hold on to the table with one hand to keep from floating away from it.”
6. Giant Rubber Duckie, $230
The pool is your bathtub—or Florentijn Hofman display—when you buy this 8-foot-tall inflatable rubber duckie.
7. Yoga Watermat PoolFloat and Lake Raft, $600
Test your balance in tree pose/look like you're practicing Vinyasa on a magic carpet on this floating yoga mat, which can hold up to 175 pounds.
8. Floating Obstacle Course, $13,500
If you’ve always dreamed of making like your favorite GUTS contestant and running an obstacle course—on water, no less—then this raceway is for you. The 42-foot-long by 32-foot-wide raceway can handle up to 60 people at a time and sounds intense:
Four raised, webbed rebounding platforms at each corner require nimble negotiation to avoid ejection into the water. One length of the course tests balance while walking over a 2'-wide "beam" ... while another encourages players to jump over a two-section water "pit" or descend and climb out. Twin climbing obstacles require participants to decide if climbing over their inflated beams is quicker than crawling through a handful of arches.
Of course, to truly get that GUTS experience, you’ll need to pair it with ...
9. Rave Iceberg Inflatable Climbing Mountain, $8000
… this 14-foot-high inflatable climbing mountain, which is basically a mini-Aggro Crag.
10. StarFighter Inflatable Squirter Float, $60

12. Aquaglide SuperVolley Floating Volleyball Court, $11,000
Volleyball, on the water, with bounce—perfect for executing a killer spike. As a bonus, the ball is attached to a bungee so it won’t go flying, then floating, away.
