10 tips for conquering BSR Cable Park's "Royal Flush"
1. Go during the week.
Lines can get up to an hour on the weekend. If you want to get your money's worth take the day off from work.

2. Start small.
The middle slide is slightly smaller than the Royal Flush. This "warm up" will help build your confidence before going BIG!
3. Try to relax.
Take a deep breath and go. Staying stiff as a board can have negative consequences
4. Do go down backwards... unless you're really confident.
There's no turning back.
5. Tighten your bathing suit.
If you decide to go down backwards make sure your bathing suit is tied tight! The Royal flush can have a tendency to pull down your drawers.
6. Hold the back of your head.
This is very important when you hit the ramp at the bottom of the slide. #whiplash
7. Get tips from the local kids.
You will see kids sliding down backwards and throwing multiple flips. They can give you great pointers for mastering the slide.
8. Don't forget your GoPro.
You will want to relive the Royal Flush experience over and over again. AND you have to show all your friends.
9. Watch out for sharks ;)
Remember it's just water...
