    My partner and I are in the midst of sorting out some "artistic differences" concerning our proposed haunt.

    One thing he wants is to incorporating a giant, multi-story slide like they have in The Beast and Edge of Hell in Kansas City. I'm not sold on the idea, but that's for us to sort out.

    My questions to you are: Where does one get a giant, multi-story slide and how much do they cost? Does anybody sell these or would it be strictly a DIY thing?

    If you get parts from a playground supplier then you are less liable than making one DIY. There is another person in the blame chain. I would have a playground company design one for you.

    I believe the chutes used in KC were originally for conveying materials/boxes from upper floors to shipping/receiving(?). My brain is failing me as to what they would technically be called, but essentially a conveyor.... an awesome, badass sliding conveyor... they're so lucky....
    How can a man die better than facing fearful odds, for the ashes of his fathers and the temple of his gods.

    My slide is a 36 inch heavy duty plastic culvert pipe. We had to be a bit creative to get a bend in it.

    Check out this website:

    Scroll down the page and you'll see the Edge of Hell slide...looks like it was custom made from sheet metal like a large air conditioning duct; but obviously stronger and better supported. haha.

    Have you tried looking at that route? Having one custom made or even looking at water park supply companies for their enclosed slides.

    Hope this helps.

    I've been staying away from the haunt on purpose since we closed for the season. This will allow my dogs to get re-aquainted with me (wife too)
