Dueling Bowl Slide

Monday, February 13, 2012 7:52 AM

They must have been really busy that day, or the lifeguards were just jerks. I've gone for a good 3-5 minutes at Kalahari, with the guards helping me learn new tricks. I loved rolling over and off of the board, balancing it on my head and surfing on my body. They won't let you do that at KI the last time I was there. The one thing I couldn't keep my balance on was trying a 360. Every time I would get to about 270 and lose the board.

I wonder if it e-stopped for you, Chris? I saw that happen a few times the last time I was there. They let the person who was on it go stand back at the top and wait for them to reset it, though.

Maybe it's just me. But, this ride just seems like an accident waiting to happen.

^^ That was probably it, because it took them about 2 minutes to turn it back on. They never offered to let me wait though, just told me that my time was up.

Jason is probably right though. I found way too much enjoyment in watching kids get tossed against the back wall whenever they wiped out. :)
