The Water Slide Simulator is a recent invention from the gang at ‘Prototype This.’ By climbing inside this giant spinning blue wheel you get the full effect of a water slide without leaving your own backyard--or pehaps the neighbor’s much larger yard.

The water engulfed circle rotates and tilts while you enjoy an exciting fun enhancing video. Right now the slide is of course, way too huge for most yards but with some tweaking, who knows?

‘Prototype This’ is a new series on the Discovery Channel in which a team of designers and builders create riotous inventions from wild concepts.

Hino and Jon Sarriugarte of Form & Reform were part of the team that built the blue water wheel. Stats for Backyard Waterparks Trending: Older & Buzzing
