Meanbox build today got the watertank ramp reinstalled and had a few runs in on it , feels awesome..will look at hitting it for the first time :thumbsup: Sorin got his one outta the way and hit it up pretty well, Hude rebuilt the little ramp which leads into the track right next to the Structure, its made the whole flow of the jump way more hittable than it was before, got some more signs up for the Dog Pound, vendetta, and taniwha, and scoped out a drop and seesaw line for Roller Coaster will look at starting work on that next week, also will be clearing up the entry into the Watertank ramp (the overgrown existing line)


EDIT: Whoops forgot to put in the photo of the jump on the side :blink:

Looking at it front on, the run in is not cleared but even coming in on a bit of an angle is not a problem
Watertank Ramp Side.jpg
We have dug out the clay and old wood that was holding up the ramp befor and layered the base with gravel, the i have added some pegs to allow people to slide the ramp back or forth in order to get their desired distance for the gap, i was suprised at how well it actually works, have also rebraced the planks on the structure too aas they were starting to give under the weight

No Comment!!!!

The jump to the side of the structure, way better than before

It is man feels real nice, from memory the old one didnt have the same flow up onto the platform it always felt a bit more kicky (word?) this has a real good feel and transfer to the platform and it gives you the ability to hit it with more speed in a few of the practices i nearly ran off the end :huh: so should of hit that but oh well Good things take Time (eh Pete (Big Mumma)) :p
