Summer might be on its way out – we know, hard to believe – but that doesn’t mean you can’t relish in the remaining weeks of warm weather and long days. Come to think of it, there is probably at least 6-8 weeks of solid weather remaining, and if you’re on the East coast of the US that generally translates into “hot and sticky”. The only way to avoid the humidity is AC or dunking yourself into a body of water.
The Water Hockey Rink is ice hockey meets slip and slide. Thirty nozzles spray 24-inch high fountains of water that saturate the surface and allowing the over sized plastic pluck and players to slide around, which will surely result in a torn groin or two. At either end sits an inflatable hockey net, while two included soft plastic hockey sticks help you defend your goal. You’ll of course need a garden hose and a penchant for short lived games, unless of course you included some sort of alcohol, though we’d never condone such a thing to a minor. It’s too bad they don’t make a version large enough to accomodate 4-6 adults, however that would probably lead to additional injuries.
