If you’re patiently waiting for sunny summer days out on the lake, you’re in luck — Sam’s Club is adding to their lineup of gigantic floats for adults. This will definitely get you even more excited for warm weather!

Joining some already popular options like this beer pong float and a floating picnic table is a brand new way to float your stress away — an 18-foot long airplane that fits up to six people!

The new plane float from Sam’s Club’s Member’s Mark brand is about 18 feet long and 17.5 feet wide and includes a built-in inflatable bench seat, cup holders, two coolers and a built-in boarding platform. Made of heavy-gauge PVC, it inflates quickly and deflates with a quick-release safety valve so you can pack it up and take it with you when your day on the lake is over. The float is $169.98 for Sam’s Club members.

No Sam’s Club membership? No problem! You can still buy this amazing float without a membership, but there is a 10% non-member fee, so they will cost around $187 instead. Shipping is free for Sam’s Club Plus members or you can pick one up for free at your local Sam’s Club.

If airplanes aren’t your preferred mode of transportation, Sam’s Club also has a new red, white and blue speedboat for the same price. The speedboat is more than 20 feet long and almost 10 feet wide. Like the plane, it holds six people and has two coolers, cup holders and a rear swim platform.

For members, both the plane and boat are $169.98 — or just $29 each if you’re splitting the cost with five friends.

Joining the airplane and speedboat this season are three more Sam’s Club-exclusive floats: a colorful unicorn and zebra and a paradise island. While the unicorn and zebra are also $169.98 for members, the paradise island float will run you $149.98.

You can find party-worthy giant floats at other stores too, like this six-person parrot float at BJ’s Wholesale for $99.99. Available in stores and online nationwide, it has cup holders, a grab rope and heavy-duty handles to make getting on (and staying on) a breeze.

If you don’t need one big enough for all your friends or family but still want something unique, BJ’s Wholesale also has a llama float big enough for one person to comfortably lounge on in a pool. At $24.99, it inflates in minutes and holds up to 250 pounds.

If you’d rather stay in your backyard and enjoy some summer fun, Sam’s Club also has giant inflatable water slides and bounce houses for kids.

My 1st Splash ‘n Slide inflates in just a few minutes and simply requires a garden hose to add water. My 1st Jump ‘n Slide doesn’t use water, but does have a bounce house and basketball hoop. Members can get each of these for $199.98.

Will you be buying a new giant inflatable float to get ready for your lake trips this summer? Nicer weather is on its way (we hope)!
