I was at this playground http://www.town.hamilton.va.us/general/ ... ground.htm and threw myself down the wave slide and got massive butt slamming ejector airtime. I got so much airtime that it hurt when I hit the bottom of the slide. This playground has a bonus Miracle Systems playground with a very fast spiral slide and a almost airtime kiddie slide. The tube slide on this bonus playground was pretty decent. The zip wire was very fun because you jumped off a tire buried halfway in the ground. I tried the baby swing and I could barely fit. The blue spiral slide on the main playground was kinda slow, bumpy and had a lame level ending curve. The monkey bars were rings attached to chains for maximum fun swinging from one to another. My mother did the zip wire and loved it.

Ejector air is not the same as flinging yourself halfway down a slide and landing hard on your ass...
Oh, were you expecting something here?

^Correct, "Ejector Air" is when the ride vehicle pulls you down faster that gravity. Something such as a slide...or a bike/skateboard...could not possibly do this. What you may experience is normal airtime.

Normal airtime= banging my bottom on the bottom of the slide?

Correction: If your ass was strapped down to the slide, you would have gotten ejector air. Instead, you came off the slide.

I liked the wave slide much better than the spiral slide.

Facepalm, apply directly to the forehead.

Who doesn't love ejector airtime on a playground slide?

^ You cannot physically acheive "ejector" airtime on a playground slide, unless you are physically restrained to the slide in some form.

If you were to acheive a negative force great enough to be called "ejector" airtime, then you would simply leave the surface of the slide rather than experiencing the ejector airtime, as you will have overcome gravity.

The slide looks too small to gain proper airtime. You need to visit bigger and better playgrounds!

[lol]

I'm sure you'd be excited to see this, so I thought I'd show it to you. It looks like the grass texture from NoLimits! [lol]

NL's grass texture can be found in so many places it's not even funny. Hyper Rails has it too.

I've only ridden one slide that does this, and it's tunneled. Technically it could be ejector air because you don't really fly off of it.

But yeah, cool story bro.

Where was the tunnel slide and do you have a picture of it?

It was on a playground in Art Van when I was a kid. And no, we didn't take pictures of it.
