Easier to set up than an above-ground pool, and basically invented for burning off energy, this summer go big with an inflatable water slide that kids will love.

Whether you’ve got a little one and want to keep it simple, or you want to go over the top, here are some top picks for serious summer fun.

A great size, great quality and a whole lot of fun, this Little Tikes inflatable water slide is one of the highest-rated and it comes highly recommended by Home editor Leigh Harrington, who has tested all sorts of inflatable swimming pools and slides for durability. She says this slide has lasted for three seasons of kid play (she admits she and her husband have also tried it out).

"Why should it be for the kids alone? This splash place is as killer as it looks," says Harrington.

Best for ages: 3 to 5

This adorable slide is the perfect entry-level water slide toy. It comes with a small splash pool, a tiny slide and ring-toss and ball games. The rainbow ring even converts into a mister to keep kids cool.

Filled with oodles of fun features, this bouncer and water slide combo can accommodate up to four kids at a time—for full family fun where no one feels left out. With the sprinkler, slide hoops and double water canons, this is an economical choice that's perfect for parties and larger groups.

The age range on this says it's best for kids 4 to 12, but plenty of adult reviewers say it's just as fun for a kiddie play date as it is for the parent-focused after-parties.

The moat surrounding this bounce castle probably isn't going to keep the wildlings out, but it will give them lots of fun and will add a little bit of imaginative play to the mix. This has a mini-sports net as well as toss targets—so it's just as good for the sporty kids as it is for those that see themselves as backyard royalty.

Best for ages: 5 and up

A steep climbing wall and soakers galore make this a perfect cool-down kids’ inflatable. There's a separate wading pool that's sectioned off from a water-filled bumper that allows active kids and those looking for more chill relaxation time can play together.

Maybe you don't have a sprawling yard and oodles of space to turn into a water theme park. This small-sized inflatable slide only requires a slim 15 feet of space and can even transform a patio or a driveway into a playtime waterway. The fun shark theme and the inflatable "surfboards" help turn any space into a surfing safari.

We all remember the original, iconic Slip N’ Slide from the '70s and '80s that turned your backyard into a wet and wild racetrack, where kids could slide and collide with reckless abandon.

This fun upgrade by Team Magnus takes the whole concept even further with this extra-long, 31-foot slide—which gives kids some serious sliding momentum. Kids will fly so fast that you’ll be grateful for the extra high bumper.

Grab their 4-pack of devil fish body boards to make this slide show even more epic.
