The Maximum Series Spiral Slide is a large plastic slide with a shape that children are guaranteed to love. Its winding shape coils a full 360 degrees from start to finish, which means that kids will disembark from it at the same angle that they enter. This helps them to maintain their balance and orientation, even after being spun around. The spiral shape also slows riders down, since they are constantly turning, which makes it safer. However, kids won’t mind because the rapidly changing scenery creates the illusion that they are moving even faster. The spiral shape also makes it more compact than a slide which extends outward, allowing it to have a greater total length without expanding the play system’s Safe Use Zone. An additional piece of deck, complete with railings, forms a decorative and protective entryway which helps to make room for the spiral.
