I would love to grab a sled and go down one of those water slides after an ice storm. :b

New for 2015 in Moscow, a waterpark with high levels of vodka in the water so that you can continue to ride the water slides all winter long. :lmao:

To be honest, I did take a sled down a giant slide one time when I was young and foolish. They used to have a pretty decent sized one at our local amusement park (the giant slide is no longer there) and a couple buddies and I decided to take some snow sleds down it one winter.

Needless to say, the airtime on the second drop was so insane that I came down HARD on the third drop, smashed into my buddies (we were trying to race) and I ended up getting a bloody nose along and we all ended up with minor bumps and bruises.

And I'll add my disclaimer here...

Not only were we trespassing on private property, but we could have been seriously injured. It's definitely something that I would NEVER recommend that anyone ever attempt. It was a really stupid thing for us to do!

Now if it were in a safer, more controlled (and legal) environment, I would love to see more ski resorts or parks make giant snow slides or bobsled- like rides! Our local ski resorts have snow tubing, but most of them are pretty tiny and cater to families with small kids...which is cool, but I wish that they would also build a couple of bigger one's for the adults.

Here are a few webcam shots of cedarpoint in the snow today.

It looks like you would need a team of sled dogs to navigate the park today.

For some reason I'm kind of surprised that the Skyride buckets stay in the station during the offseason. It almost seems like they could just transfer them on and have the thing running in a few minutes if they wanted (though that's probably not the case).
