The water slide, or pool slide, is a Build mode object which was introduced in The Sims: Vacation, and re-introduced in The Sims 2: Seasons and The Sims 3: Island Paradise. It must be placed along the edge of a swimming pool to be useful. Unlike the diving board, Sims have no fears or reservations about using the water slide to enter the pool. However, in The Sims 2, a visibly pregnant Sim cannot use the water slide.
In Vacation, the pool slide is known as The Wet and Twisted, and costs §419. In Seasons, it is known as The Kronklehorn, and costs §800. Despite the differences in name and price, it looks the same in both games, except for a few slight differences in the ladder.
The Sims 3: Island Paradise includes two pool slides. One, the Hydroglide Waterslide by DeLuge Inc. costs §1,050, and is similar to the water slides in Vacation and The Sims 2: Seasons. The other, the Aquaducks Waterslide, costs §1,200 and uses a slightly different design.
The Sims: VacationEdit
Water slides were first introduced in The Sims: Vacation. They are found in the Swimming Pools section of Build mode, and must be placed over a large-enough swimming pool.
The Sims 2: SeasonsEdit
Water slides return in The Sims 2: Seasons. They are found in the Swimming Pools section of Build mode, and must be placed over a large-enough swimming pool. Sims will either slide down on their backs or on their bellies before splashing into the pool.
Available colors: Yellow, Pink, White, Red, Green, Blue
The Sims 3: Island ParadiseEdit
Water slides are added in The Sims 3: Island Paradise. They are an addition to pool objects. Children and non-pregnant older Sims can use the water slide. Water slides require enough space to be placed on a non-curved pool edge.
