  • Nice ride, can get slow if you have a kid on your lap.
  • The ride up to the slide was nice and relaxing. However, the slides themselves were really SLOW! My husband and I both went down with young kids and our 9 year old alone. All three of us has the stick forward as far as it goes and we still had parts where we were scouting along. Price and service was great though. Plus they donate proceeds to local organizations. That's enough for me to continue to support this organization.
