Expensive, difficult, slightly dangerous, not particularly effective... I'm on a roll.

Splash Splash Revolution

Floating DDR
  [vote for,

(intro: Dance Dance Revolution is an interactive video game where you have to dance on a square mat in time to music in order to win each round and progress to the next round. The music gets faster and faster, and as you struggle to hit the proper footpads at the right times, you end up doing a cool dance with twists and fancy combination moves.)

Some people are way too good at this game...

Hence I propose a floating version. A buoyant dance pad which floats in a swimming pool should add enough instability that experts will find their dexterity challenged in order to stay balanced.

Wireless signals will connect the waterproof dancepad with the video monitor which rests on the swimming pool's rim.

The underside of the dancepad has propellers which move the dancepad around in the water, too, in time with the music. This makes an error, or more likely, a splash, even more common.

       And the people on the screen could be mermaids or something!

       And if that proves too easy, add wave generators for that dual slop action.

       ... and if they get used to the wave generators, just try buttering the dancepad. (+)
