(WHAS11) – We all remember Twister as a classic, beloved game from childhood. But it’s recently gotten a cool new update — and now, it won’t be painful if you fall when stretching to reach a dot that’s too far away.
Hammacher Schlemmer’s Inflatable Outdoor Color Dot Game is an oversized, inflatable version of the original Twister game mat. It’s exactly what you need to impress your party guests — and to bring some good, ol’ fashioned fun to your gatherings.
Gather a large group of your favorite people onto the giant inflatable and just try to hold still as you reach for one of the 64 color dots in eight rows.
The inflatable game is 15-by-15-feet and supports up to 1,500 pounds! It comes with an air blower that keeps the playing surface inflated.
Even the spinner is neat: It is 24 inches in diameter and 3-feet high on a stand that you place near the mat.
However, this inflatable game is a pretty expensive addition to a family get-together or birthday party: It retails for $2,000.
The product does come with Hammacher Schlemmer’s lifetime guarantee, though, so you’ll be set for life with this party game.
Shipping the Inflatable Outdoor Color Dot Game is available in the U.S. and Canada. It will take an estimated 4 to 6 weeks for delivery.
