I absolutely love the Tornado slides...but I'm always wary of what could happen if I didn't have a firm grip on the innertube handles. I've caught air on the initial drop into the funnel while facing backwards, and that is one of the most unnerving feelings I've ever experienced on a water slide.

Lake Compounce immediately closes all of their water slides, log flume, and drinking fountains.
