8. Shoot the Tube
Shooting the tube is a unique experience that is an absolute blast. This ¼ mile long homemade underground thrill ride runs under I-215 on the east belt route. It was set up to help with the drainage from Parley’s creek but has since become a fun waterslide. In order to make it work, you have to block off the entrance to the tube with the old street signs laying around. Once the water flow has slowed through the tube, you get ready, release the sign and it shoots you down!
