    Ken,

    I have not been there in my Fullsize, but I have heard that there are places to play out in the middle. Just don't try the trails, unless you REALLY don't care about damage. (Notice I did not say scrapes) These trails are TIGHT. Jeep / Suzuki tight.

    is it true that only trucks with wheelbases shorter that 120" are allowed there?

    Trucks with under 120 inch wheel base are allowed in... but to only VERY limited areas from what I understand.

    Then if you are 107 or under, the whole place is open to you. So, a Blazer being 106.5.... we are free to roam!!!

    Ken,

    I have several friends who own Fullsize Blazers and have went without problems. They didnt suffer much body damage if any. Now, they have had damage there, but it can be avoided if you have a good spotter. When are you planning to go? I may venture up there sometime this summer. In fact, I would like to host the Midwest Summer K5 Thing there this year if possible. So, keep me posted if you don't mind. Also, if you need more info on Disney, check out my site using the link below.

    Later,

    Neil

    Neil, well said. Midwest Summer K5 Thing @ ATTICA!
    Attica was a blast at the Superlift thing.

    Thanks fellas...looks like fun. They also look tight, but not as tight as a few trails around here.
