That's One Really Long Slide!

I've seen several videos of these really long roller slides in Japan. I've never seen anything like this in the states. It looks fun (even though I'm sure that I could find some way to fall off and skin my knees).



Have you ever seen one of these? We have roller slides, but they're usually just a few feet long. Very tame in comparison.

Haven't seen anything quite like that, but we have long slides that wind round and round.

I may have to take a trip to Canada (it's been awhile) just to see one of those. I love the inventiveness of playground creators (playground architects? What are they actually called)?

My favorite is West Edmonton Mall's indoor water park (even though I live over 2000 miles away from it) in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. They have a huge wave pool, over a dozen long water slides, and a tube slide I really enjoy too (where you plop your butt in a water tube going down a water slide). We try to go before the summer rush and get 2-for-1 tickets online first. The last time I went in May/08, it cost $14/ticket and you could stay all day. The mall used to be the largest in the world and has a themed hotel onsite, submarines, roller coasters, ice rink, etc. - and hundreds of stores and restaurants, of course!

I've actually been there (although I think it was way back in something like 1998). We went there and to Banff (which we've visited several times) and had a lot of fun.
