OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

The phrase “super soaker” applies so well to the Nerf Super Soaker Hoverflood. That's because when flying this water toy, you will get super soaked. This is a toy helicopter that uses water pressure from a hose to fly through the air and drench whoever is underneath. 

You've got to assemble it first, which is easy to do, and then attach the controller to a garden hose. Turn on the hose, and then turn the valve knob on the controller to the open position to make the helicopter take off and hover in the air.

Is It Fun?

You will definitely get soaked very quickly with this toy, so this is going to be a really fun toy to play with outside on a hot summer day. Because it's connected to your hose, you'll have an endless stream of water, so if you wanted to use this in a Super Soaker water battle, you'll still be soaking when your opponent's traditional Super Soaker runs out of water.

While it's pretty easy to set up and operate, there were a few things that we found made the Hoverflood perform really well. First, even though the instructions say to slowly turn the valve knob, if you turn it too slow, the helicopter won't take off right. So you'll want to give the knob a moderately fast turn. 

Second, to better control the helicopter in the air, lasso it once it has taken off.

Who It’s For
The Nerf Super Soaker Hoverflood is for ages 6 and up. Kids who want to get drenched when they play outside this summer will have a lot of fun with this flying water blaster.
What To Be Aware Of

Assembly is required but is easy to do. 

Even though the instructions say to slowly turn the valve knob, if you turn it too slow, the helicopter won't take off right. So you'll want to give the knob a moderately fast turn. And to better control the helicopter in the air, lasso it once it has taken off.

For best operating conditions, Hasbro says the water pressure should be a minimum of 35psi, the minimum flow rate should be 5 gallons/minute, and the maximum hose length should be 50 feet. This doesn't work with expandable hoses.

AT A GLANCE:
  • Fun

  • Repeat Play
