This time I broke the written rule and went backwards (up stairs) to the top where the kids are supposed to come out to see G finish the climb. Well, on the stairs was a dad who had his two little kids. One kid was still in diapers. You see where I am going with this? Let me just say, adults can't get in this contraption and neither can some tweeners. Amazing isn't it? So this dad lets his old enough daughter climb through it and encourages not old enough son to go too. Not old enough son was not speaking and walking but some what unsteady.
So G and I leave this area returning to the ground level and other interesting artifacts only to hear a blood curdling scream then many many many tears. Well, old enough daughter and not old enough son got pretty far in the contraption then couldn't see how to get out. I am sure dad was well meaning in his encouragement but kids got stuck. Not old enough son wouldn't calm down long enough to follow old enough big sis nor could he hear his dad's instruction.
Everything turned out well in the end because I saw all of them later on ground level. I told G that was why she couldn't go up until she was tall enough and old enough to not get scared and stuck. It was a "just shake your head and move on" kind of moment.
This is a pick from the ground to show how tall it is. Clearly dad was not a rule follower, heh.
