It definitely is a big hole, but the point that was made with the original post stands well with that hole as well. It is low consequence, which also exists on natural stretches of water, just not as concentrated as they are at play parks from what I've seen in videos (we have no real play parks in California). Awesome carnage video btw.

Schutzie always thought ratings were important for doing a first run through a section; you know, kind of a what to expect thing.

But on something like a play park, where you play all the time, you either know it or you don't. The rating really wouldn't mean much if you already knew what was there.

Schutzie doesn't get the fuss over the rating level of a play park; you either got it or you don't, and when you get there the first time expecting lets say a 2, and discover a 4, then at least you aren't forced to run the damn thing, or be all disappointed you spent all this time and money to get there and then chicken out, or get all disappointed you didn't find the carnage you were expecting cause, again, how determined did you have to be to get there in the first place?

Holy Moly! I've been to the Durango playpark in low water in the IK and it didn't look like that. Double Holy Moly!
