- Page 1

You would think designing a playground would be a fun task. Trying to figure out what makes kids happy while keeping them safe is a tough balance but it seems like something that would be an alright job.

As it turns out, it's a lot harder than you might think. There's a lot of things that can go VERY wrong. Sometimes the theory of a play structure sounds great, but when you actually build it the result is something less than stellar.

These playgrounds are reminiscent of those horrifying abandoned theme parks we looked at before, except they don't have the excuse of being old and decrepit because they are intended for use by children.

5. This is one way to prevent kids from thinking they can go all the way around...

8. It's probably the fastest slide in all the world, so at least when you break your ankles you can pretend to be impressive

9. Except maybe this one...

10. It's a long way down to the end of this slide

Just you wait, there are even worse ones that we haven't gotten to yet
