The Hippo® - an exciting business opportunity!

FreeStyle Slides® is a unique and innovative company. Our vision for cutting edge family entertainment has led us to the development of an exciting new concept known as The Hippo®. The Hippo® from FreeStyle Slides® is the world’s largest inflatable water slide, designed on the same scale as attractions in theme parks and water parks. This incredible product sets a whole new standard for the entertainment industry and is soon to give permanent water slides a run for their money. In addition to competing with permanent attractions, The Hippo® is also considered to be a temporary structure. For this reason The Hippo® provides a unique opportunity to tap into markets that have always been off-limits. These markets have proven to generate tremendous amounts of revenues.

The Hippo® operates on two high output 2 HP blowers, producing 9 inches of static pressure. Inflation time is incredibly fast, taking only 15 to 20 minutes.

The entire slide, including the set of 60 high density polyethylene stairs, weighs 3,700 lbs when deflated. The slide can be transported in a 12 ft x 6 ft flatbed trailer and when it comes to storage, the whole slide fits in a space no larger than 6 ft x 6 ft x 12 ft.


The Hippo® has been constructed to operate as a wet or dry slide, offering the flexibility to operate all year round, regardless of the season or the location. The Hippo® converts to a dry slide by simply removing the two 25 ft extensions.


The standard colors of The Hippo® are royal blue and yellow, with a white sliding surface. Custom colors can be ordered by request. Please call for details.
