The footprint of The Mid-Cal Mud Slide is more than 300 feet long, with three connecting pools of water. The start pool will be staged atop a 48-foot flatbed trailer. Two downrails bring the slider to a second pool that is 150 feet long, 25 feet wide and 3 feet deep-and includes two obstacles. The rider launches over 20 feet of mud before landing in third and final pool (50 feet long). A power winch will pull the riders at approximately 18 mph.
