The top platform has to be about 30 feet above the water. It is ridiculously high. You’d think that would stop a six year old, but not Carson. Not to be out done by my six year old, I had to go off too. Let me tell you, I had a lot of time to think on my way down. I could have written a short story in the time it took for me to hit the water. Crazy fun time at the lake.
