A water trampoline has a jump surface supported by a steel frame and trampoline springs. A water bouncer has a jump surface supported by a spring-less interlocking webbing connected from the flotation tube to the jump surface.
A water trampoline can support heavier loads on the jump surface and will provide a higher jump than a water bouncer. All Island Hopper® water trampolines are made of 1000 denier “reinforced” PVC material and are recommended for commercial operations. Unlike the bouncer, a water trampoline requires assembling the framed jump surface. This will take about 30 minutes additional set-up time.
A water bouncer is a great family recreational product and costs less than a water trampoline. It will support a good amount of weight and will provide a short bounce. A bouncer does not require any assembly other then inflating and anchoring.
