It's hard not to smile and laugh when thinking about growing up with the county fair, the local amusement parks and of course, who could forget. . . the scrambler!
We had a fun project a few weeks ago, when we got a call from Mr. Williams in Fayetteville, GA. He initially said they had a slab that had settled, it was out in the open. When it rains, they have to use sump pumps and leaf blowers to get the puddled water out of the way. Who knew it was at Fun Junction USA (formerly Dixieland Fun Park)!
The slab, that the scrambler sits on, had settled and was holding water when it rains. We see this problem often. After time, the soil under a slab may settle and not provide the good base, as initially planned. Sometimes erosion has a part to play, but in this case, with fairly flat ground, this problem most likely happened from constant vibrations, from the ride, and settlement over time.
After every storm, the crew would remove this cover and put a pump in the area to drain water out.
Our goal was to give full lift and support to the settled slab area, where the base of the ride sits, with polyurethane foam. We wanted to give enough lift at the middle to encourage water away from pooling at the center. After lift was completed, we then void filled and supported around the perimeter, with polyurethane foam. While the work was being done, we were sure to have our transit handy to make sure we had enough fall on the slab.
And, of course, when we were done . . . We had to take a ride!
What a cool project we were able to be a part of! This was another successful job for Concrete Corrections.
