Since I agreed to the water park, I thought I should at least TRY one of the slides. And guess what! I actually kind of liked it. It's about 15 seconds of complete and total terror, but then when you realize that you've made it out and you're still alive, it's kind of an exhilarating feeling. The hardest part was standing in line at the TOP of the huge flight of stairs (which I'm pretty sure were swaying in the Draper wind).
As I watched children much smaller than me willingly climb into the dark tube and make it out safely at the bottom, I managed to muster up enough courage to get in one myself.
|doesn't this tangled mess of slides and tubes look just like that Mouse Trap game??|
My favorite part, though, was tubing down the Lazy River with the kids...
I also loved the giant bucket that would periodically dump water (Mack thinks it was 12,000 gallons) on the people standing on the ground below it. That water was COLD! I didn't even venture close to the "bucket dumping zone."
And we all loved the super comfy folding chairs in the cabana!
...this was my favorite view of the whole day!
Another great day in Utah!
