Kurt’s Blog: The Rocketslide Might Not Be For Adults

Urbandale built a brand new park over at Walker Johnston Park. It started last fall…and 90% of it’s complete (and the kids loooovvve it).

The 10% that’s not complete…the Rocket Slide. Well, that’s what I call it. Here’s what it looks like…

It’s two giant slides built into the hill. My kids have been drooling over this idea ever since they saw it. The snow fence at the top has kept them from heading on down…

On Sunday…for some reason…the snow fence was down. I thought, maybe they’re done? It’s finished? Just need some cosmetic touchups and it’ll be good to go?

We saw other families on the rocket slide…so we made that priority #1 on Sunday.

Here was my son’s first trip down the Rocket Slide…

And now, here is my inaugural trip, from my point of view…complete with bruised tailbone.

Yes…I bruised my tailbone. I asked other parents and they were limping around a bit too…the kids though? No effects at all. Just screams of joy and happiness. I asked my kids 5 times throughout the day…”Does your booty hurt?” Both kids quickly replied…no, let’s go back to the rocket slide.

Conclusion…for kids…the Rocketslide is the greatest thing in the history of things.

For adults…we’ll need some ice.

(by the way, as of this morning, the snow fence was back up at the top, so I don’t think it’s officially open…don’t worry, I’ll let you know)

AWESOME is as AWESOME does!
