    Here is a vid of my ride down the Alpine Slide, at Attitash Mountain in Bartlett NH.
    It didn't come out as smooth as I thought it would, but it still looks cool.

    A sled like this
    [​IMG]

    Push the handle forward to go fast, and pull back to stop.
    I went slower than I usually do for that run, I didn't want to go off track and break the DroidX.... Yes you can go off track, I have more than once.

    Wow, brings me back to many years ago when we used to go to Action Park in NJ. People always got bad scrapes and bruises on the Alpine Slide.

    Wish there was still one around here somewhere.

    Maybe you should reupload that unless you want it to be forever named Apline Slide. :p

    Action Park! I miss that place. I grew up in CT and every other week during the summer I'd go there (NJ). Loved the Alpine slides (3 track!lol) and crazy fast go karts. I always wanted to try the waterslide with the loop but it had been closed the prior summer to my first visit due to a person dying in it. Sadly the thing was still up that first year and was the ultimate forbbiden fruit.

    Great video. I did one of those in Ober Gatlinburg, TN when I was little. I know it was due to the concrete track, but the audio almost sounded like back masking. I half expcted to hear "Paul is dead" or "Satan smokes marijuana".

    Wow that Alpine Slide looks a lot cooler than the one we have in Cave City, Ky. How did you mount the camera?

    Must be painful if you go flying off the side of that slide going way too fast! Looks fun either way. Awesome video.
