Admittedly, this place is miles from the South Shore... but every single kid in the van declared it worth the trip and traffic. Reviewers had never seen slides as impressive as this pair. They raced for 70 minutes while their teacher timed them on a sports watch. Madison took the grand prize with her 2.9 second run. Windbreakers helped with speed, although we all wished we had access to Clark Griswold's “noncaloric silicon-based kitchen lubricant" in Christmas Vacation. 

The slides. THE SLIDES!

I also like this see saw thing, even though it’s really important to find someone who is kind of your same size.
