Second of five sections of Banzai Downhill, one of three trails that provide a top-to-bottom descent of the system. Starts with a large wooden table-top. That leads directly into Plankenstein, an extended twisting bridge above the forest floor with two large wood table tops into a twisting corner that dumps the rider back onto dirt. From there a series of berms lead to a rollable ladder drop into a rollable step-up, followed by a sequence of ladder drops until the trail exits onto a side road near the cliff drop and builder staging area.

All features can be rolled and most have ride-arounds (some of the tabletops do not, for example). First-time riders especially should scout all wooden and dirt features before attempting them. Individual riders can apply varying degrees of speed and select increasingly challenging lines, which may result in an experience that can be viewed from beginner up to intermediate and advanced.

Access Info

Access the top of this trail from the main road, directly across from the bottom of Banzai Downhill 1. The bottom of this trail exits you out onto the road. Keep going down the road to reach the short climb that marks the start of Banzai Downhill 3.
