Third of five sections of Banzai Downhill, one of three trails that provide a top-to-bottom descent of the system. This segment is one of only three that are rated "green" by the trail managers; the other two being Player Slayer and Banzai Downhill 5.
Starts with a climb from the end of the access road just past the builder staging area, up to a snag with a big bloodshot plastic eyeball in it. From there a series of flowy berms, jumps, and small tabletops lead down to the three rollable exit drops. The exit drops can be avoided altogether by taking a little cutoff trail to the left. The rightmost exit drop is the smallest of the three. The middle exit drop is a little higher than the left one; however it is less steeply sloped so most riders will find the biggest vertical huck to landing from the leftmost drop.
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 the top of this trail by traveling west on the access road spur off the main climbing road, past the builder staging area and cliff drop, and then turning up and to the left. The bottom of this trail and exit drops are at another access road, right above the "RIP" sign that marks the start of Banzai Downhill 4
