The picture does not do this justice. This slide is the height of a 3 story building. It is HUGE, it is FAST. Although little kids love this also, this slide is primarely rented for older teenagers and adults. This goes out for Highschool graduation parties, large church events, and community events. If you are doing a back yard party and the kids are mostly under 14 years of age, consider getting a smaller slide. Our 16ft and 19ft slides are way more than enough excitement for any age group. Our smaller 19ft slides are like standing on the roof of a 2 story house,,, and this is much taller. Go with a smaller slide! This one is way over the top.
