    I bet your backyard doesn't have one of these!

    Meet The Backyard Dunk Tank! Here's info from Hammacher. This is the commercial-quality 500-gallon dunk tank that imparts a carnival atmosphere to any backyard event. Made from durable polyethylene, the tank suspends willing subjects 2’ above the water—high enough to view a volunteer’s false bravado—on a UV-resistant, high-density polycarbonate seat that supports up to 250 lbs. A half-circle vinyl steel cage protects a sitter from ill-aimed heaves of one of the 12 included 6 1/4-oz. balls used to strike the 7”-diameter target while an 55" W H x 90" H 20-oz. canvas backstop corrals errant tosses. The tank rests atop heavy duty dolly wheels that enable easy positioning and movement into storage without the need for a dedicated trailer. A 48" W x 37 1/2" H Lexan window built into the tank’s side enables onlookers to observe the reaction of the immersed before rising to the surface. 87” H x 78” W x 62” D. (500 lbs.) Price? $2800. (I love that next to the $2800 price it says: “How Many”.) But wait, there's more. Shipping adds another $300. But the dunk tank does weigh 500 pounds! Here's their YouTube video:
