Three Year Old in Perris Tunnel Can't Post

My three-year-old grandson has more tunnel time than I do dagnabbit. The crew at Perris was wonderful with him even after he hesitated when he heard the "big noise."

I took my 7yo daughter to the wind tunnel in Houston and made a video edited with music and effects so she could take it to show and tell at school.

My ex-wife was pissed.AngelicSly

Marc Hogue, onwer of Coolidge brought his daughter into the tunnel in Vegas a couple years ago - I think she was about 1 to 2 years.

Kim, one of the tunnel instructors at the Perris tunnel had her 3 year old daughter and her friend in the tunnel for her 3 year olds birthday. She'd told me about it ahead of time so I went and watched and it was THE cutest thing I've ever seen. At that young age the kids have no fear. And what was really cute was watching Destiny's reaction to her mom flying the tunnel, she was laughing and jumping up and down waving to her mom. Too cute!!

I can't wait till December 8th and I'll have another 3 year old in the tunnel pic to post. I'm taking a 3 year old and a 6 year old in there, a local family has taken me in as their own at their art studio. i thought it would be a nice way to say thanks.

How did the 3 year old do? I'm a little worried because the 3 year old is a girl and didn't seem to thrilled but who knows once she sees her brother and dad doing it. I'll be sure to tell them about the big noise; i suggested that they get there early to watch peopel fly before they do to make sure the kids are comfortable.

I was there that day. Really cool to see little kids to that. They are so good at it. They juust relax and bend it is great.

WE see lots of little ones in the Perris tunnel. They did have a Got Kids session at least once a week. Not sure if they are still doing that or not.

That little gilrs has no fear what so ever. I have seen her standing on the back of bicycles while people are zipping around the dz, just smiling from ear to ear. I guess it is in her genes. Having Eli Thompson as her Dad and Kim as her Mom, she is gonna be a jump bum when she grows up.

At the Gran canaria tunnel the instructors would flip kids over gently, show them where to put their arms, and then hold their feet.

Too cool to describe, too bad I don't have pictures!
