To make the most out of your time on the water, get yourself a water trampoline or water bouncer. Playing on normal trampolines can be fun but being thrown into the air from a water trampoline is on a whole new level! The adrenaline rush is unreal,
These provide great fun for the whole family, kids and adults will be entertained for hours on end.
Yes, water trampolines and bouncers are suitable for adults too!
If you don’t already have one you need to get yourself one as soon as possible.
If you’ve already had the pleasure of using one, then you’d know how much excitement they can add to a day out on the water. These trampolines must be one of my favorite water toys.
There is a wide variety of different water trampolines and bouncers on the market, which is great as you have a huge selection to choose from, however it also makes the decision more difficult to make. Lucky for you, I’m going to be reviewing the 5 best water trampolines.
Top Rated Water Trampoline Reviews
Island Hopper 10′ Bounce N Splash Padded Water Bouncer
Let’s start off this list with the absolute best water bouncer, the Bounce N Splash padded water bouncer by Island Hopper.
This is a very extremely built bouncer, made from 1000 Denier PVC which is a very durable and sturdy material. Featuring ½ foam perimeter padding for added comfort as well as safety.
This is a spring-less trampoline, instead it has an interlaced nylon webbing ‘bouncer’ design.
It has a large 7’6 jump surface and height of 23”. This is a perfect size for use on a lake or pond. It’s also the perfect size for multiple kids to use at the same time, though you may want a slightly bigger bouncer for adults.
It features 8 swimming assisted handles and a 4-step easy access ladder which make it easy to climb back onto the bouncer after falling off. 6 anchor secure D-rings make for a secure anchoring.
You’ll also be happy to know that this product comes with a 5-year seam “No Blow-Out” warranty. This is not something offered by all water trampoline manufacturers so it’s always nice to be included.
Overall this is a very high-quality water bouncer that I’d recommend. This is the perfect product for kids due to its size and many great features. Though if you want a trampoline suitable for adults then you may want something a bit bigger. Despite that, adults may find this trampoline suitable for lounging.
Rave Eclipse AJ-120 Trampoline
This is another great water trampoline, this time by Rave Sports. If you know anything about watersports equipment, then you’d know Rave Sports are absolutely killing the watersports game. They’re a very reputable brand known for their water toys. Particularly, I’m a big fan of their boat slides.
In fact, Rave Sports Eclipse water trampolines are known to be the product which sparked the entire commercial-grade inflatable water toy industry. This is a classic.
The black nylon webbing jump surface attaches to an inflatable tube, held together with metal springs – providing insane jump potential and thus offering the ultimate bouncing experience. The springs are what provides the increased air height potential, which is why this trampoline is so good compared to others.
This trampoline is very easy to set-up. You can have it up and running in just 4 simple steps. Firstly, you inflate the tube, you then use the metal springs to attach and jump surface, drag or push it out to 10-inch-deep water then anchor it. Just like that, you’re ready to have fun!
This is a large trampoline, when full inflates it reaches 26’ tall and 12.2’ in diameter. This makes it suitable for children and adults! It’s recommended for either 4 children or 2 adults. Because of this, everyone can get in on the fun!
The trampoline is very strong and sturdy. It’s constructed from commercial-grade, highly durable materials. Only the best materials are used to ensure that the trampoline is long lasting and safe to use.
RAVE Sports has numerous attachments available which you can attach to this trampoline. Attachments allow for increased fun. With enough attachments, you can make your own obstacle/agility course. Now that’s how you have fun!
Overall, this is a great and probably most well-known water trampoline for sale. It’s a great size for family fun, which allows everyone to participate. It’s very durable and could last you may years of use if used and maintained properly. Also, the addition of attachments introduces you to a whole new world of fun.
Rave Bongo Water Bouncer 10’
The Bongo Water Bouncer is another awesome bouncer by Rave Sports.
This bouncer is smaller than the previously reviewed water trampoline. It is 26” tall and 10” in diameter. This makes it the perfect size for 2 children or 1 adult. You can find this bouncer in a variety of different sizes. If you’d prefer a larger bouncer more appropriate for adults and a larger amount of children, you can find the 13 foot version on Amazon by Clicking Here.
An anchor weight of 35-45 pounds is recommended to keep the bouncer sturdily in place. You can have the bouncer ready in minutes. Easy to follow set-up and anchoring instructions are included to help you get the bouncer ready in no time.
One key thing to keep in mind about this bouncer is, unlike the previously reviewed trampolines – this unit is designed for lounging, playing and use as a swim platform rather than jumping. Though you can obviously still bounce, it won’t provide the same jump potential as the Aqua Jump Eclipse Water Trampoline.
An additional bonus is an included durable 3-step ladder. This makes it easy to climb onto the water bouncer from the water.
Overall, this is a great choice of water bouncer for those who’d prefer to lounge rather than being launched into air. It’s also a lot more affordable compared to the Eclipse Aqua Jump 120 trampoline.
Popsport Inflatable Water Trampoline
Another alternative is the Inflatable Water Trampoline by Popsport.
It is made from a very durable material, being a selection of eco-friendly 0.9mm PVC tarpaulin. This is waterproof and has great resistance against the elements such as, the cold and the heat. This will ensure that the trampoline lasts you a long time.
Several built-in handles make it very easy to manoeuvre, it is a very portable water trampoline. It is very easy to set-up; you can have it up and running in no time.
The included easy access ladder is always nice to have. This makes it a lot easier to climb onto the trampoline. I feel as though this is almost the standard for most water trampolines nowadays.
Overall this seems like a good alternative if the other water trampolines available don’t match you taste. Though. this isn’t as popular of a product as the previously reviewed water trampolines so ensure that you do your research before committing to a purchase.
Water Bouncers with Slides
RAVE Sports Splash Zone Plus
Yet another market changing water bouncer by RAVE Sports. This bouncer will provide the whole family with summer long fun. This is a combination of a water bouncer, slide, balancing log and swimming platform. This is the complete, all-in-one water park.
This must be one of the most creative water bouncers on the market.
It’s incredibly easy to inflate and set-up. Clear and complete set-up instructions are included with the owner’s manual. It also comes with a handy repair patch kit which can be used to make small repairs. This is not something that most water bouncers come with. Small things like this is exactly why I love Rave Sports products; they genuinely care about their customers.
This is a water bouncer, not a trampoline. The difference being that bouncers do not have springs. This means that you may not be able to jump as high on this bouncer, but it’s a lot easier to set-up and weighs less, making it more portable.
It’s recommended that you have 2 adults or 3 children at a time.
Overall, this is the most fun and creative water bouncers on the market. IF you want your own little water park then this is the product for you. It’s also worth noting that this bouncer comes with a limited 3-year warranty.
RAVE Sports O-Zone Plus Water Bouncer
Liked the looks of the Splash Zone Plus but want something a little bit more toned down? Well the O-Zone Plus is just as good. This is like the previously reviewed water bouncer however it features a slightly different design and doesn’t have a balancing log. This is an inflatable water bouncer with the option of being either 5 foot or 7 foot and having a slide or not.
I really like how there are so many different variations of this water bouncer. You’re bound to find something which suits your needs.
I’d recommend the 7-foot version with the slide if it’s within budget to maximise the amount of fun you can have with it. More space means more people which often equates to more fun!
The bouncer has a swimming platform attached with soft handles and grab lines which make it easy for children to climb on-top of the bounce surface.
This bouncer only weights 60 pounds which makes it easy to transport and manoeuvre. It’s also very easy to set-up just as most Rave Sports products are. Complete instructions are included in the owner’s manual.
What’s the Difference Between a Water Trampoline and a Water Bouncer?
The main difference between a water trampoline and a water bouncer is the fact that water trampolines have springs connecting the jumping surface to the tube. Whereas bouncers will often feature some sort of webbing to connect the jump surface to the tube.
- Water Trampolines: Springs
- Water Bouncers: Webbing
Because of this difference, they both functions differently. The springs in a water trampoline provide an increased bounce height, meaning you can bounce significantly higher on a trampoline than a bouncer. Water bouncers will still be bouncy but don’t expect to go as high as you would in a trampoline.
This makes water trampolines perfect for those who have a thirst for adrenaline and love the idea of being launched into the air. Bouncers are a great choice for those who like to lounge and don’t care about going as high.
Not having springs also means that bouncers are very lightweight and portable. This makes it easy to get them where you want them. The set-up process is often very simple, you can get most bouncers up and ready within a few minutes. Setting up a water trampoline usually takes a few hands.
Regardless of whether you decide to purchase a water trampoline or a water bouncer, you’re in for a great time. Both will provide you and your family with endless hours of fun.
These can be very enjoyable activities, especially for the kids, though adults can have fun too.
