Default backyard park?

Does anyone have a backyard terrain park or thinking about building one? I really can't wait till next season to ride again.
I'm just about done getting mine together. I really want to get those front boards down before next season

@ slyder-good looking setup...do you still have it and use it?

@lj79615-the white fence is called lattice fence. i got it from home depot pretty cheap. it slides like ice but you can't carve/turn on it. it almost slipped my mind but i remembered you have to counter sink the screws. it's easy to cut to size too. let me know how it's going with your setup and post up some build pics....i might be able to get some ideas

Yes I still have the set up, but the kids have kinda out grown it so to say. We still have the stuff but the boys just don't have an iterest to do it during the summer.

Just a piece of advice to consider...look up "rolling ladder" on craig's list. You can often times get one that is 6' tall for under 150 bucks. I've seen them go for $50 here in Indianapolis.
These make ideal towers to drop in from, then all you have to do is attach the ramp that you have built on the other side. Once I get mine finished, I'll post pics.

Also, consider using PVC pipe pieces spaced about 6 inches apart running perpendicular to your drop in ramp. It is very fast and durable. I used to use the nylon latice, but it broke easily once the temperature dropped into the teens.

I'm able to get enough speed from mine to hit a 2 foot kicker.

Whoa! that's sick! i never thought of the rolling latter as a drop in tower, such a good idea! i've seen pictures of the pvc drop in..it definitely makes a lot of sense. i'm getting plenty of speed on my drop in but the turf is a little slow so i'm going to put on some orange construction fence on it next. i want to avoid having to use water to add speed cuz i want to avoid making a mess.
any more advice, please feel free to shoot

the orange construction fence is a very soft plastic you may find that this slows you down just as much. I 've never used it, seen it, so just my thoughts on that material.
You testing might be the best bet but I still believe it's gonna be slow
