The Sports Park 60 is by all accounts is the epitome of stupid rich.  At the time we told you about the Richy Rich of inflatable toys we didn’t know the price, but now we’re hearing $60,000.  That’s a pretty penny to spend on some over sized blow up toys.  But if you’ve got the cash to burn (as well as your kids energy), then it might be an investment worthy of your bank account.  If for some reason you can’t afford to drop a Range Rover worth of cash on your son and his friends, then you might perhaps consider this inflatable Rope Swing from Rave Sports.

It costs $2,500, which is certainly no drop in the bucket, but compared to the Sports Park 60, it’s Dollar Store cheap.  The fully inflatable device is the only one of its type.  Sad, because we would prefer a higher fulcrum – watch the video (above) and you’ll see that swing speeds are anything but analogous to that of a traditional, lake side rope swing.  Nevertheless, it should serve up some good fun, especially when paired with Rave Sports’ floating trampoline.  Now that’s something we can literally and figurative get on board with.
