When the sun beats down and the lake's icy cool water beckons, the Bongo water bouncer from Rave Sports answers the call. Quite simply one of the greatest summertime accessories ever, the Bongo water bouncer inflates quickly and anchors easily, created a water-logged playground for kids and adults alike. The Bongo looks like a huge inner tube, but with a trampoline-like surface on the top for lounging or bouncing. The Bongo's soft center is ideal for bouncing fun--simply take a couple of warm-up jumps and then bound gleefully into the water--but is also stiff enough for relaxing on a toasty afternoon. And getting out of the water is just as easy as jumping in thanks to the durable boarding ladder, which includes steps that extend deep into the water, hand holds molded into each step, and boarding assist handles at the top. You can even attach multiple water park attachments to the Bongo, such as small slide and log attachments.



The Bongo water bouncer offers a trampoline-like surface for bouncing or lounging.
Although the Bongo is similar to a traditional water trampoline, it also offers a few key differences. First, the Bongo is easy to transport, meaning you can set it up quickly and use it anywhere. If you have a large pickup truck, you can even stow it in the truck bed, although Rave Sports recommends that you don't drag it across the ground. Second, the Bongo doesn't have any metal parts, so you needn't worry about corrosion. Finally, the Bongo can be used on land or water, making it far more flexible than most water trampolines. Like any inflatable product, however, the Bongo tube should not be exposed to rough edges or sharp objects like rocks and sticks.

The Bongo water bouncer comes in three sizes--10, 13, or 15 feet--that accommodates several friends or an entire family. Even better, the bouncer's 1,000-denier polyester, UV-treated PVC material (with heat-welded seams) is extremely durable. In fact, it's the same high-grade material used in many ocean-going inflatables and inflatable military boats. As a result, you can use the Bongo in the ocean and other saltwater locations, as there no metal components aside from the stainless-steel anchor rings. Best of all, the Bongo--which requires a water depth of at least 8 feet--sets up easily. You can use the included two-way hand pump for the 10- or 13-foot Bongo or an industrial inflator/deflator (not included) for the larger 15-foot version. It takes roughly 5 minutes to inflate the Bongo with a high-volume inflator/deflator and 20 minutes with the two-way hand pump. The water bouncer also comes with either a day-use anchor bag (Bongo 10 and 13) that can be filled with sand or rocks or a fixed anchor harness (Bongo 15) on the underside of the tube.

The Bongo carries a lifetime warranty against defects in material or workmanship.

Not spending my whole Summer looking for a compatible compresor!

I use Rave's electric air pump and pretty much max out the pressure it produces.

We bought this swim platform for our home on a lake for our 12 and 8 year old boys.

I unwrapped and inflated the platform in the garage using an air compressor. It comes with couplings for an air pump and vaccuum for inflation, but as I don't have an air pump and access to the vaccuum as a blower was not convenient, I wanted to use the air compressor.

There is not a fitting that works with an air compressor included. I ended up using a fitting I use to blow out the sprinkler system and some duct tape to create a fitting. It worked OK as the raft is only supposed to be inflated to 5 lbs of pressure and for the vast majority of the inflation there was only a pound or two of pressure.

This is when I hit my first glitch. I had no way to measure 5 lbs of pressure. So I inflated it until it seemed tight and then moved it to the lake for launch. In the end I had under inflated it. I sent my boys our for a test run and when they climbed the ladder the tube collapsed excessively. I would say that watching kids use the ladder is the best test of how much pressure to add. Of course this is not practical unless you are in the water, but I figured out I could float it out into 4 feet of water and test it. We had to add air one more time too as after a week of play the tube stretch a little I think.

The anchor is kind of underplayed in the whole description of this product, but it recommends an 80 anchor. I used 6 cement blocks as I felt that that was well over 80 pounds and would sink into the lake bottom enough to guarentee the raft didn't go anywhere. I purchased 30 feet of stainless steel chain to attach the raft to the block.

All around fun in the sun.
Extremely sturdy and can hold a ton of people. Works as a trampoline on land and as a bouncer on water..... Kids love it.

Could use a better anchor system but we make due.

Good construction. Much more durable than the ones I purchased at retail stores. Unfortunately its a lot smaller than it looks on the web. Room for about 2 to lay on. Get the bigger one if you can afford it.

Used the product on a lakeside home. The size is perfect for kids and 1 or 2 adults. It became the magnet of the community!
I do recommend buying air compressor that is also sold by same supplier. Took short period to fill and the compressor is of good quality,and time is money. Not spending my whole Summer looking for a compatible compresor!
High durable item. Can't wait to pull it out next year!

1)It's not "bouncy" like a trampoline. It's more of a sun deck that floats. We bought it for a party and it was disappointing.
2)Within a week of purchase, we had to buy a $50 part from Rave called a "stabilizer for 3 step ladder" because this piece came lose and sunk. Rave offered no guarantee.

This item is not worth the money and is probably one of those things you should see first and not buy online. Who wants a non-bouncy water bouncer?!

The grand kids and their friends flock to this for bouncing, jumping and just playing or laying around. Very popular. Because it has no structural frame, it needs to be fully and firmly (tightly) inflated. When that is done it works great. I use Rave's electric air pump and pretty much max out the pressure it produces. Almost like a drum head. I suppose it can be overinflated, but ours has survived daytime temps from the low 70’s to mid 90's with no issues yet. This is our first summer with it. The pump also deflates it entirely for more compact storage.
