Hi Ana. No I wasn't able to see it.
We were in Monteverde cloud forest where we walked the trail with 7 bridges. It's a beautiful country, absolutely gorgeous!
Ok, later.
Take care, hearts
Terri

Gerry, did you see the one that is in pieces so that it swings forward and back as well as side by side? I'm short so it was quite a challenge to get my little legs to the next one when they swing. lol I'm not the one walking the bridge, I am the one in the blank tank top and my son is the one in the gray muscle shirt.
They had a group of people celebrating their 75th birthday the day before so I figured if they could do it, so could I. rotfl

Update. I did ride the Alpine slide. Not much to write about. I thought you would put your weight in the direction of the turn (like on a motorcycle) but was told not to or the sled could jump track. eek So, at every turn there was a slow sign, I slowed. I think I slowed too much plus the slide was made of alternate concrete and fiberglass in sections so it was not a smooth ride. However, the two seated ride up to the top of the alpine ride was fun. Anyway, beautiful country, cool weather. I had a good time but 17 days was too long. Also ended up on a red eye coming home, they changed our flight, I was miserable. Now if I can just get used to CST again. Those two hours made a big difference for me.
Ana, I did get to see the pics. No way would I put myself on that bridge. The one I was on was much larger and more secure! scared

Sounds like a great trip, but there is no place like home. hearts

My track record of calamities in the past (such as face planting after landing parachuting) tells me to avoid the slide. Telling me not to lean into the turns is not acceptable, I would likely do it because it would be an involuntary response.

Glad you had the experience and hope you have lots of happy memories.

Thanks for the update Terri. I guess I won't be recommending the ride to anyone. I'm glad you enjoyed the natural beauty.

Bob. My granddaughters enjoyed it. The youngest one(9) must have ridden it at least 10 to 15 times with her dad at her side. My daughter thought it was going to be a lot of fun, she road one similar in Germany and had a great time but she too was a bit disappointed by this one.
So, I guess children must like it!
