I may have missed it somewhere in the past several pages but what is the height restriction for this thing? I've got a 1 year old that's growing like a weed and Knoebels might just have to be in the works a few years from now....

^So no height restriction? Just weight limits? Interesting...

Sorry. You must be 42" to ride. I was just agreeing with the weight restrictions.

That's the first video I've watched. It is much quieter than I would have thought. Looks like a fun time!

So fascinating to see a ride "grand open" and the wood be so weathered!

I'd love to see how that thing drains in the rain ... it's hard to to tell, but do they have cutouts in different places for drainage?

Also, and this will sound odd, but does the entire ride really smell of wood? Just looking at that POV it seems like it would smell like you're in a active lumber yard, but obviously there's not been a lot of fresh cuts made to this thing lately!

What a story of persistence and determination in getting this thing running!

I love donkeys more than me.

I'm also wondering how often they have to sweep it out and how long that takes? The leaves will be falling really soon so near the end of the season that might be something they have to deal with.
