I think the Salmon Ladder is one of the more dangerous obstacles, but it's so fun you can't really replace it.
I think it's going to be there for a loonnngggg time.
The farthur into the course you get the more dangerous an obstacle is allowed to be because the people who can get there obviously can endure it! I mean the Flying Chute was fine far into the course, if it was the first obstacle there would be lawsuits out the wazoo! Rope Glider injured 5 people and that's gone, imagine if the downhill jump was in its place!... Well if it was lets hope Aoki gets a nice funeral!
