The ride is what you make of it. It can be a great few minutes if you pick up speed and feel the rush, or it could be pretty boring if you ride the brake all the way down.
I had to go with my 6 yr old, so I let us gain some speed and we had a great time. My 9 yr old was kind of scared, so she went very slow all the way down. Unfortunately for my wife, she was following her, so she had to go slow, too. I don't think they had a very good time.
Staff was pretty much useless. You would think they would give a little instruction on how the sled worked. Not really, they just said, this one is the fast-lane, this one the slow-lane. To make things worse, when the slide is done, you have to carry your own sled over to them to place on the chairlift back up. So dads, enjoy carrying your sled, your wife's sled, and your young kids' sleds. Really, what is the staff paid for? Don't really do anything for you at the top, don't do a damn thing for you at the bottom.
