It would probably be borderline for me trying it. If I were near it I'd probably try it once but I would be a bit nervous. The scenery is beautiful, but the turns aren't banked, the wall is super low, and I would have to hope that the glass is resistant from cracking in the long run. I would love to see if a reputable company like ProSlide built their own version of something like this.

Honestly the decline appears so gradual, it looks like clunking down a sidewalk with a couple garden hoses providing the water :lol:

Hmmmm, actually, it looks like the way I ride down city sidewalk hills on my kick scooter. Traverse. Klunk. Traverse. Klunk. Traverse. Klunk!!!
In truth, I could see SKIING this as more pleasant than "fluming" down. At least you could do nice banked turns (unless you face-plant over the mountainside). :shockr:

It looks like your more likely to get stuck on the curves then fly off.

The scenery seems great, but I am not sure about the safety levels. The sides looks a bit short.

This looks awesome! It'd be really cool to look down through the glass and see the scenery below you. Brilliant!

I've never even thought about going to China. But if I ever do end up going, I'd love to try this.
