Not surprisingly – this is the most popular feature in the park in the summer!

Perhaps it's because it's an open slide and you see the trees flashing by you as you descend down the 30 m drop but the sensation of speed is such that screaming female voices (and the occasional male voice) is the norm. You gather so much speed that we have to warn everyone to keep their legs tightly together to prevent them spreading beyond the comfort level when they hit the pool below.

The most surprising thing we've found is that even in the middle of winter - when most adults with sense are sipping warm coffee in the sun - the kids are STILL going the water slide!
