This game will be the highlight of your party. So much fun for kids and adults! Yes, you could go around to all the stores and buy these elements but why not get the whole package ready to go! I have already cut all the plastic to the exact right size for 48 foot lengths (can be shorter if necessary.) I purchased all the pieces and set up for a school party on Tuesday and it was a total hit. All the plastic is dried, pools deflated and ready to be used again. You will just need a spigot and hose to fill the pools. I have 100' of hose that I could include if needed. We can even help set it up (takes @ 2 people 1.5 hours) for additional cost. Want it dismantled too? Let me know.
