I am a 41 yo and I went down the slide. I don't recall seeing a height requirement on any signs. It might of said the depth where the slide comes out which is between 3-4 feet.

Kids came down in life jackets and the life guards let some parents wait near the bottom to assist their kid.

It's just dark inside for a bit. I wore my goggles sine I lie to see and I wear contacts. Most of the time I never went under when I came into the water. But sometimes I did. It just depended on if I was sitting or laying.

My DH and I both went down the slide a few weeks ago. My DH is almost 6'2", so no maximum as far as we could tell!

Good to know I'm not likely to be the only grown adult on it.

Wow. For some reason I thought they were almost done dealing with the refrigerators. I thought I had seen posts from people who said that they had gotten new ones.

I think it is a form letter they are slowly sending to everyone. Covers their butts now instead of when you arrive.

I hope by December this isn't a problem. We are doing standard view because we would have a fridge. We had planned on bringing soda and water to make it sort of like club level for us. This is what we mainly used the lounge for. I don't like the idea of having to buy cups and running back and forth to Capt.Cooks. It would be rather hard for us to be able to afford CL again. I also do have a medical reason for needing a fridge. My insulin needs to be refrigerated.

When we were at the Poly two weeks ago, our room had a working refrigerator.
