Yeah its probably closer to that depth maybe a little more. I'm six foot tall and I don't remember ever touching the bottom. I think I over exaggerate the depth because of my last time there. I've been to RC twice, once when I was 17 and once when I had two sons aged 8 and 7. When I was 17 it was cool going down the slides, when I was a father its was like they are going to drown. I would have to thread water at the bottom and push them towards the ropes.
