Hey Kids, Think we can get grandpa Jet to ride this water slide:D


Scorpion’s Tail” will be just over 400-ft. in length. Riders will climb nearly 80-ft. to the top of the lift tower. They will enter the launch rocket, which is a tube with a floor. On a countdown of “3-2-1”, the bottom drops out of the tube and then gravity, water and centrifugal force take over. The rider whooshes through a 45-degree angled loop-de-loop at speeds of up to 40 mph.

Last year it was the same weekend as the nationals (this year)

I'd guess June 10,11,12 2011. but that may be open to interpretation.

Hopefully we can do a thursday, friday, sat with a wrap up on sunday. but no plans yet.

I sure hope its the same weekend as last time. Weather was good and the Standard summer crowds have not moved in yet.
I hope it is the same weekend,my birthday is on the 15th of June and I love celebrating(?) with a rally!
that's doable (is that a word?). I'll have to watch this one and see who I can bring with me.
Nancy for one?
Let me know if I can help!

The ferry ride was a lot of fun! it did take awhile with all those cars though. maybe split the drive into 2 groups? One group drives the route forward, the other starts from the other end? Just throwing out ideas here. The park was great too. Maybe some marker signs on the roads for turns and such.

Count us in!!! The park was a perfect saturday afternoon gathering spot. Ferry was good too. I have spoken to lots of folks that went, and so far everyone liked how the events were spaced out- so we had a little free time in between. During the free time, it was great fun driving around the dells and seeing at least one smart on every road and in most parking lots...Next time we will upgrade from the hotel we had last time though (our bad).
