This is super cool. It's actually one of the OSG6B things I got to do. It unfortunately coincided with a bunch of weird health concerns with my eyes so I was partaking of less screen time but I did ride a tube:)

It's a nice relaxing change of pace compared to the roller coasters and tube slides that Cutelala makes for sure. Sorry to hear about your eye issues Jamie, hope it's cleared up!
You are probably too young to remember what inspired me to make the signs :D

Oh you flatter me Key:) I'm probably not as young as you think I might be but I'm also not terribly hip so aside from SL - what was the inspiration? LOL

Oops, I failed to see you are in Canada so you probably never saw the sequential roadside advertising signs for Burmashave, unless you had traveled state highways in the US during the 60's and 70's. Actually, the Burmashave ad campaign officially ended in 1962 but many signs remained for decades.
Here's a good article explaining all about them:

Some of them were pretty funny! Like this:

SHE EYED
HIS BEARD
AND SAID NO DICE
THE WEDDING’S OFF
I’LL COOK THE RICE
BURMA SHAVE

:D
