Yep... That line was killing me. I waited 25min at one point, that was the only line I had all day. I cant wait for them to replace that chair.

This gal DID NOT need to worry about where she landed. 41'' in 48 hours and a 60 foot huck off a diving board.

Wow, 41' in 48 hours. Isn't that almost 1 foot per hour? I'm surprised you can see the trees at all. I'm sure you meant 41" in 48 hours which is still spectacular!
