as of riight now, (well this past weekend) Crystal's park is in pretty decent shape as far as rails/boxes go. They have a "rail garden" under the Crystal Clipper on Basin Street with two different lines. One side has a A-frame box, elevated 20' flat rail, Rainbow Box and Barrel Bonk. Other side: C-box, followed by a flat box, 20' down rail, and a DFD. Jump line is consisted of 3 jumps (1st being the smallest, last being the "biggest"). And the small "giggles" park has an urban feature small box and rail, ride-on small box and rail followed by an uphill "dance floor".
Your recent email was passed on to me. I’m sorry the features in our terrain parks are not to your liking.
Please rest assured that Crystal invests considerable time and money in an attempt to provide features that a wide range of ages and abilities can use.
Requests range from parents who want smaller jumps for their smaller children, to advanced users who want bigger and bigger jumps(which we won’t do because of the number of catastrophic injuries recorded nationally, due to mislanding big jumps). We simply do not have enough available space to give everyone all that they want, including that part of our clientele who object to having any space taken by terrain parks.
In direct response to your comments and of those on the forum that you reference I would first ask if you have spoken w/ Will Johnston, the terrain park manager, or members of his crew, regarding specifically what you think should be changed or improved? One of them is almost always on the hill and are open to constructive comments.
I’m sorry but terms like the jumps “suck” and they’re “sketch” and my favorite from Marty “shitty jumps are a whole new level of shittyness” , really don’t give much information as to specifically what someone thinks is wrong and how the features could be better.
If you would like to respond to this email with specific constructive suggestions, I will pass on the information to Will.
