Rear Net Climb

When I worked at the park in the mid 80's and the Parachute ride was closed for high winds we would be sentenced to Bugs Bunny hell. I recall working this slide a few times, mostly helping the kids who would chicken out half way up the net. We would assist them to the hut at the top and then slide down after the kids made it back to ground level. For whatever reason, the material they used to make our uniform pants built up extreme amounts of static electricity going down the slides and would make big sparks when they passed over the bolt heads mounted from the bottom inside the tube. It actually hurt a little! :eek:

I'm so sorry Harry! lol I'm so glad I've been at coasters for the past two years.

I don't know if I ever got to go to this attraction or not (I remember the net climb at Sesame Place but maybe I did go to the one at Great Adventure too), but it looks like it was a lot of fun for kids.
