How big is this jump?



It's at 1:05. I am just wondering my guess was around 40 ft. Would just like to know cause I am really bad at guessing distances.

Wide angle lens :/ maybe 45ish. The table by itself is at least 35+ and the backside the of the wedge adds another 5 from the lip.

Best guess, 35. I could be wrong though, it's hard to tell with the camera.

When I was in the Army I knew a man who had 3 rules about sex, one of them was "quantity not quality". I really regret not asking him what 200 pound twins would classify as.

Somewhere between 30-40 sounds about right, the landing on it really sucks.

Yea, that's the biggest we got here. Holiday Valley builds one that's about fifty. Thanks though guys. When they originally built those two jumps it was one big one and was around 55ish. Not enough speed though even from the top.

Really tough to judge from that video and angle.

Ya it's in the video a bunch more too, but it is even worse angles. There isn't really a good spot to look at it besides the lift and there are trees in the way. Thanks again though. Just making sure I wasn't way off and it be like 30 or 25. That would be embarrassing.


It's at :19 too if that helps.

I'd say about 35-40 feet. Camera angles can be deceiving though.
