The 5 Best Pool Slides

Best High-End
Best Mid-Range
Best Inexpensive

This wiki has been updated 7 times since it was first published in February of 2019. While swimming pools are incredible fun for kids of all ages, adding a slide into the mix can up the entertainment factor considerably. These options are perfect for installing in your backyard, as they're durable, sturdy and, best of all, thrilling. Of course, they can give children all sorts of new ways to injure themselves, so keep a watchful eye out and put a quick stop to any horseplay. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best pool slide on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

March 14, 2019:

While it may look simple, the Inter-Fab Wild Ride garnered the top spot because this is one area where simplicity is preferred. It's long enough for children to build up some serious momentum before hitting the water, yet installing it doesn't require an advanced engineering degree. Of course, if you don't want to do any installation work at all, you can always use the Intex Inflatable Play Center, but just know that it's not going to last for years like the other models on the list (and probably won't do much for your home's resale value, either).

Quincy is also knowledgeable about home improvement, as he’s had extensive experience with everything from insulation to power tools to emergency room trips, sometimes in that order. Sharing a home with three dogs and a couple of cats has forced Quincy to learn as much as he can about pet supplies, animal nutrition and, most importantly, the best ways to tackle the mountains of fur that accumulate in every corner of your home.
