Here’s a new spin on the water park concept. Instead of heading off to the traditional, overly-crowded, somewhat disgusting local water park, consider an inflatable water park.

I first spotted the trend while on holiday in the Caribbean, so I may be a little biased. But just think about the benefits: you don’t have to deal with murky, chlorinated water or unclaimed bandaids swimming floating down the slide beside you. Whether in a lake or at the beach, this water park just feels cleaner and more adventurous.
