... because I'm very stiff and sore, and it feels like I have a slight case of whiplash.
What did I do to cause this? Why, I double-dog-dared myself to ride the Tanzanian Twister water slide at Kalahari, Wisconsin Dells. Better known as "the toilet."
I whanged my head pretty good when I got dumped into the bowl, but had enough brain cells still firing that I was able to take a deep breath and hold my nose before I went down the hole.
This ride should come with a free lifetime pass to your chiropractor of choice. I can safely say I will never do it again.
But, given the opportunity, I will do the milder outdoor version, the Swahili Swirl, the one where you ride a tube/raft, and the final drop is down another chute into a shallow pool where you can exit your raft at some leisure. Best of all: No whiplash!
What I want to know is, how did this person manage to come down the final chute facing front? I went in backwards both times. Go figure.
Now I can cross "water park" off my bucket list.
And for all your lurkers, I'm back home now, so don't think you can rob my house while I'm out of state!
