Ah, but the grass part of the packing area at Perris remains green all year long.
Water out here is more expensive than electricity! The water we do use is recycled from the ponds (irrigation ditches) to the landing areas. We re-seed the complex including the landing areas twice a year. Our packing as you know is primarily indoors.
The tunnel is in a great location. The city electricity is more expensive than that of the county. By placing the tunnel where it is, it cut down on the projected electricity costs by 20% (County is 20% less than city) Additionally, the plan in the future includes a dormitory and a third landing area inthe vacinity of the tunnel. There will of course be a "no fly" zone 500 feet above the structures. Just waiting for the first yahoo!! We're getting closer

wowza you would ask me that. I beleive its somewhere around 102 feet. It can be seen from I-10 I suppose now folks will just look for the tunnel when trying to find the DZ I am thinking the tubes should be painted with red stripes...LOL Wouldnt that be a hoot? "Hey Mom whats that candy cane looking thingy?" Bwahhhhhhhh
I cannot wait to meet you and see the tunnel! I think Ari is pretty stoaked too. Maybe I'll drag you know who our there with us I'm twitching over here in DeLand and itching to by a ticket to AZ. I said, esp now that there is a Skyventure...if there is more than one hurricane this season, I'M OUT! AZ here I would come

I vote for flames.
nah it needs to play up the whole 'Jetsons' look it already has... like a docking platform for the mothership.....hmmm maybe we could get George Clinton to play here on opening day... whenever that is....
I thought it would have been fun to place the large soccer balloon uptop. The wind tunnel blowing it would look like and ice cream cone. On another note Axel told me about a conversation had with a whuffo...went something like this:" Well what about those tube thingys...do the skydivers shoot out the top?" The reply was.."Well yes they do! They come out the top and it shoots them all the way to 13,000 feet!" Classic!
