Fourth of five sections of Banzai Downhill, one of three trails that provide a top-to-bottom descent of the system. The last section that most riders will want to take, as it exits close to Basic Training and a good spot to restart climbing to the top.

Starts under a large wooden sign reading "RIP" and then rolls immediately into a series of three tabletops built from a mixture of wood and dirt. After that a wooden jump leads into a ramped ladder drop as the trail swerves to the left, narrows, and turns into a technical and rocky singletrack leading across two wood bridges to an open landing. A short climb up from that landing leads into the "Tinkerbell jumps", a progressive series of kickers that build in height and steepness as you head down the hill. At the very end riders have the option of hitting a jump that sends them to the right and over a large roller into a berm with a finishing jump across the road, or staying left to roll across the road.

All features can be rolled and most have ride-arounds. 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.
