The 8-foot Straight Sectional Free Standing Slide is one of the largest and fastest models of freestanding slides that we offer, which means it is certain to be a favorite of young thrill-seekers. The deck where the slide begins towers a full eight feet above the ground, and the slide has a straight sloping chute without any curves or waves to slow its riders down. However, this model does not sacrifice any amount of safety for the sake of excitement. The bottom section of the slide is specially designed to slow kids to a stop by the time they reach the ground. The stairs and top deck are coated in a slip-preventing coating, and are protected by secure metal handrails on all sides. The distinct sections of the slide give it a bright appearance with stripes that seem to fly past as kids glide across them. A variety of color combinations are available for these sections, as well as for the railings and support posts.
