Road Rash While SWIMMING?!
So this afternoon, Daughter and I went to Wet’n'Wild. No, although that would be a good name for a venue with, ahem, adult entertainment, it’s actually a local water park. Slides, flumes, circulating water that you can just drift along with, and usually about a gazillion kids.
Daughter’s now nearly eight, and until now she’s usually chickened out of all the big kids rides. Not so much today though, and after a shaky start we spent ages going up and down one of the rides which has a series of interconnected pools that you slide between sitting in rubber rings.
The pools themselves were only about 18″ deep, with some foam on the bottom - invariably, entering a pool at speed, some people end up getting tipped out of their rings. Of course, for that to happen, you’d probably have to be having more fun than the design parameters of this particular ride . . .
. . . and just my luck, to get tipped out over an area where the foam matting had come away, leaving bare concrete exposed to my elbow.
Some poeple are born accident-prone. Some people have accidents through no fault of their own. The rest of us have to really work at it.
