Have you a local costco? Help a brother out!

The closest to me is far far away. Anyway, I see in the Costco Connections magazine that they have a "Mega Splash Waterslide," but they don't have it online, nor will costco give out prices over the phone. Can anyone take a look next time they are there and let me know the price?

We have one just down the road from us but we're not members. If they'll let us in without having to buy a membership, I'd be happy to check it out for you.

It seems like a number of us may hold a power over kvrdave. How can we utilize this for the advancement of mankind?

I don't know if there is any way for advancement, but by keeping me out of populated areas and interacting with people, you are at least preventing a step back.

Then we'll have that price for you on the double!

As soon as I finish dinner... and this episode of Family Guy... and...

(seriously though, I'm sure you'll have an answer by next weekend, if you don't, bump the thread then and I'll see what I can do).

Is it similar to this? (I have not seen the Costco pic, so this is a guess)

I stood in awe when I came across that the other day. I contemplated how to get that thing to fit in my apartment, and how the roomate would react to it.

I was then pulled away by the girlfriend and was told 'no, you can't have it'.

They didnt have it in the LIC Costco...All they had prices were for the jump or combo slides for lakes.

I don't like the LIC Costco. The Brooklyn one is better. My favorites are the Westbury and Commack. And I have no problem going out there from Queens.

Just got back, but my Costco doesn't have it. We have a bunch of blow-molded kayaks, inflatable rafts, a wooden play set (swings, slide, climbing) but not a water slide in the "seasonal" area. Sorry.

Still looking for this?

They have it at my Costco for $399.99.
I'm not sure how heavy it is for shipping, but it's pretty heavy.

I was hoping to find the weight online, but so far no luck.
The box says to go to spinmaster.com, but I can't find it there.

No, I don't want to ship it. I just wanted to know the price before I drove 2 hours to my nearest Costco.

Thanks a bunch.

Ok. I was hoping for maybe some kind of trade for one of your cool poker tables! It was road trip time.
