"My Favorite" Challenge
Now, a little background about the layout. This was a family trip to Six Flags back in 2000. My son was just under 3 years old, and seeing the waterslide insisted on going. Now, mind you, this is the "kiddie" slide that he's standing in front of. I got in line with him and at the top was told I couldn't go down with him. I tried to convince him not to go but he had his heart set on it. As soon as he started down the slide, he fell back and was quickly flipped onto his belly by a curve. He rolled back and forth all the way down. I was horrified that I couldn't help him, and ran to the bottom to comfort him as soon as I could. He got out of the water and was covered in scratches. Poor thing...hasn't been on another waterslide since (and he's 12 1/2 now).
He came in while I was putting this layout together and told me he remembered the whole thing. He swears the guy at the top PUSHED him down the slide, and can't get over the fact that he would do that, lol.
