The slide is great! Don't be fooled, the trick is to put on a suntail oil / lotion before you go down it and you'll zip around the corners. I'm 5'8 and all of 220lbs, and I went down the thing without suntan oil on and got stuck! lol - that's funny. I put on the suntan oil and damn if I couldn't control myself, it was a blast.
I think its 42 even if it does empty into the pool, but I also think smaller kids can ride with adults.
Its not slow either, the trick is to have been in the pool, with wet hands and feet, both feet in the water jets, hands all loose and wet on the bar, standing partially up. it kind of pulsates so its best to wait for a burst to start and then swing yourself down, lying flat on the slide with arms crossed or at your sides and turning your legs with the slide.
