J&J’s Water Bug “pump” gas-powered bumper boat: the original is still going strong with over 20,000 produced! First patented by J&J in the early 1970’s, the first bumper boats were manufactured to add an exciting water activity to fun centers. Since that time, we have improved and refined the design into the largest-selling bumper boat attraction in the world. Generating high revenues with a small footprint, this unit is often copied, but never duplicated. A true classic in its own right!
