Pirate Blaster Inflatable Water Park.Question: Just wondering about taking this down & storing it. Is it possible for 1 person to get it back into the storage bag/container that it comes with & what are the dimensions of that? Thanks so much!
It is definitely possible for one adult to store the Inflatable Water Park on their own, but it is also much easier to store it with help. Specifically, the product you ask about, the Pirate Blaster Inflatable Water Park, is one of Blast Zone’s larger Inflatables.
During the drying process, it is best to turn it over to allow the bottom to dry out, which is easier with 2 people. Fully drying the water park is critical, as we discussed in our last Mail Zone post. Drying it will make it much lighter, and more manageable, and also keep mildew from developing.
Once the Inflatable Water Park is dry, it will be folded first lengthwise, then folded or rolled like a big sleeping bag. Because this product is large, and will likely be about twice the size of a sleeping bag or so, moving it can then be tedious. Some people just use a wagon or wheelbarrow to move it around. It will be over 50lbs, and a bit cumbersome, so it may be easier for some adults to handle than others. We also offer more compact units like the Spray N Splash 2, which are easier to handle. If you are intent on the bouncer function, you might even consider a smaller slide, and a bouncer separately. This way, you will not always have the water to deal with as well.
Can you disconnect the water cannon/sprayers without turning off the sprayer to the slide?
Great question, and one we get a lot. The answer is, yes, you can definitely disable the cannon to save water. There are 3 way to easily disable it, choose any of which work for you. We’ll go in order of simplicity:
- The easiest way is just to unscrew the attachment to the cannon, bend the hose over, and zip-tie it shut. The tubes are flexible, so this is really easy to do.
- Next up, you can buy a “Hose Plug” for about $1 from your local hardware store, and screw it into the female hose fitting, where the cannon hooks to the main sprayer system. This is the easiest to “do and undo” if you want to use the cannon later.
- You can purchase a 3/8″ insert ball valve, and install that in-line before the sprayer system. This will allow you to permanently toggle the cannon on and off, as needed.
None of these will void your warranty, so have at it!

does it come with a blower to blow in the air because we don”t have one?
All Blast Zone Inflatables come with the appropriate blower that is engineered to the inflatable. We do not recommend using any other blowers, as each Blast Zone Bounce House and Water Park is specifically engineered to the inflatable it comes with.
Home Use Inflatables come with the blower included in the main shipping carton, while commercial Inflatable Blowers ship in a separate box.
