#1 playground � Berryville (amazing plunge, steep tube slide, spinning seat thing, over the shoulder restraint swings, wiggle balance beam, rock walls galore, fast triple slide in back, side tunnel-tube up high on the outside of the main tower, sand box, log cabin thing and couple of small straight and curve slides)
#2 playground � Burrow Park( self operated digger, a sea saw with tires under it, running barrel thing, fast spiral slide, spinning gate ride, lame smelly S curve tube slide, merry go round, vintage monkey bars, big swings and a crazy looking double wave slide.
#3 playground - Cub Run Chantilly (a hang and spin maypole thing, two huge tall slides and awesome rock wall, net climber, wide ladders, and smaller slide, spinning seats)
#4 playground - Jim Burnett Park (huge tube slides, a fast straight slide, cool bridges to cross, a curvy fast slide, all in the freezing cold)
#5 playground � Hamilton Park (zipline, bonus �safety� playground in back, special Ed swing, tires to play on and great wave slide)
#5 playground - Lovettsville Community Center( insane steep side to side tube slide that bangs up anyone big like me, very fast straight slide, huge spiral tube slide, three bridges and a very slow and lame spiral slide.

You can't do loops on swings, Mythbuster's proved it.


Actually, you can... But you need steel bars instead of the chain link and a lot of muscle power... [lol]

My top 3 worst playgrounds

#1 The three kangaroo climbers at Bethany�s church. (I had to tilt my body sideways to get through the arched slide entrance, and then my feet touched the ground at the end of the slide before I was even on the slide. http://www.kangarooclimber.com/
#2 The little tykes playground at Grandma�s church. (I couldn't fit my shoulders in the craw tunnel; my feet were on the ground when I sat on top of the slides, my big bottom was too wide for the slides and was uncomfortable)
#3 The kangaroo climber at Jessica�s house. (When I sat on the plastic platform to the slide entrance, it bowed under my weight. I had to squeeze through the arched entrance, sideways, to the tiny slide, which my feet touched ground before I was down the slide. When I tried to climb the side build in stairs, the whole thing wanted to tip over because of my weight)

If you have some proper welding skills, you can build those yourself with a couple steel pipes. [:D]
