While on my mission trip to South Dakota I got two more playground credits. One at a school that I was staying at and one the All Nations Church. The one at the school had a cool double rail banister slide a very fast bumpy kiddie slide and a very static shocking slow spiral slide.

There is a big looking elementary playground in Waterford that has three huge red slides. I really want to go to that playground and use my burlap, purple sweatshirt, or a green plastic dish to go faster on the slides. Here are the rules of APE. http://www.facebook.com/topic.php?uid=1 ... opic=10927

The one in Berryille is epic for a playground. I loved the huge dropping curve tube slide. It had swings with over the shoulder restraints. It is my # 1 playground.

I was just on one of those yesterday!!!! I went to a park for The 4th of July and I went to see the playground and those were there! That is funny.

That APE thing is so copied off of ACE. That is hysterical.

All RCCAs should be RMC'd. And that event shall be henceforth known as the Rollercaust.

I do!


Well, actually only the swings and (steel) slides. [:D] We've used to have a 15ft tall swing on walking distance... I loved to jump off those. Best freefall on a swing. [lol] Too bad they took down the playground now for stupid mansions. [:(] There was also a zipline at that playground. I'm sure that playground would have been cool5 heaven.

Slides, these should explain enough:

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