"I drove 10 hours for 10 seconds of fun!?!?'

"I drove 10 hours for 10 seconds of fun...." I overheard this as I was walking up to the track. A bit of hyperbole because it's a ~30 second ride.

As part of the experience you stand in line waiting your turn

Some people spend their time trying to warm their hands

You can go into the warmup building or shoot the breeze with others in line

Here is an example of the packing method used for getting everyone on the sled. And, of course, a cell phone video in the making

It's rare for anyone to not be laughing/smiling or screaming when riding--I like the expressions in this frame

I've decided that the only way to show the whole slide would require the rental of a lift which is beyond the scope of this project so here is a photograph of the bottom of the slide

With luck there will be more to come...
