So cool! All the backyard coasters we've seen here are neat and all, but this is one of the few homebrew rides I've see that looks really fun!

I once built a sled run that zig-zaged down the side of a hill. I never thought of a slip 'n' Slide. If one was creative enough, that could be a blast!
Still, kudos to the builder!

3-4 bags (15-20 feet) were fine, be we got ambitious and made a train of garbag bags 30-40 feet long. It was fun, except that when you came to the end, there was no splash-down. Riders were launched onto a wet grass hill at full speed. (Imagine grass stains from your belt line to your neck.)
Also, if a bag slipped, you might find yourself riding grass in the middle of the slide.
But we were young and dumb. This was just one of the few things us councellors foolishly tried, then later promised never to mention to our young impressionable campers. :)
Check out this one:
That's crazy. I was not prepared for the ramp and the landing pool when the video started. I'm amazed that they had accurately calculated the landing point!
To think that when I was young and my parents were out of town, my friends and I just got loaded over and over again. We could have been doing so much more.
