I think I am uniquely qualified to rate this. I own a 8x13 ft steel land trampoline manufactured in the early 70's with a wicked bounce, a 10ft bongo, a 10ft sportstuff water trampoline, a 15 ft rave eclipse water trampoline, the large slide, the launch and the log. We purchased the eclipse thinking it would be a lot more bouncy than the bongo because the eclipse has metal springs and the bongo just has elastic straps. Boy did we make a costly mistake. The eclipse is not bouncy at all. On all 3 water trampolines, the force of your jump is transmitted into the water by laws of physics, and not a good bounce for the person. There just isn't a bouncy water trampoline. It ends up being a place where you sit, stand, walk, jump off and fall over laughing. Because none of them is bouncy, save the money and just get the big bongo instead of the eclipse. Both are made of quality, commercial grade materials and will last many seasons if you don't leave it out year round. If you leave it out continually, it will get dirty, mossy, and partially deflated after a year or two and I watched a neighbor throw theirs out. The slide is awesome. However this looks like their little slide instead of the larger, but it is probably still fun. The log is for balancing and most people fall off trying to walk across until they get good at it. We tie our sportstuff trampoline to the far edge of the log and people try to run back and forth. It ends up being really funny. However this whole thing is not the elixir of life, just a fun thing to play with a few minute a day all summer. Just like any toy, it gets used less and less and people get tired of it. I wish we saved $1500 and bought the setup you see above instead of the higher grade model because it's just as fun.
