  • The kids had played on it all day, it couldn't be that scary, but when I looked down from the top I could see it wasn't the safest slide in the world. Smooth plywood was all that supported your 15 foot decent to the hard ground.

    Everyone was shouting for me to go down, so I knew I had to go. Not too bad, there are some foam cushions to soften your land. So I went, weeeeeeee.

    Those soft cushions not only softened my landing, they increased my bounce. I flew in the air across the yard where the hard ground was not so good at softening my landing. A little pain was not enough to cloud my excitement. Thanks to those encouraging kids I slid with no fear.
