I just realized I have a couple 4x8 chalkboards that I got at a surplus sale for $10, I was thinking about using them for a wall underneath or above as well, this thing is turning into a real good idea

if you make this thing big enough (lol it's already huge) you could always hook an air compressor up and put an american gladiators style tennis ball cannon sticking out of the slide hole...

we used to do this as kids. we'd set up a station in the backyard with tennis balls and a guy on the roof with nerf arrow guns, it was awesome, we'd also dip the arrows in gasoline and light them (this was right around the time of Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves) .

I'm doing everything Saturday. I'll post pictures of an empty cooler or a glorious tower when complete. If everything goes as planned, it will be pictures of both.

We just had to move our swingset because of that tree and put it back up. While reconstructing, we replaced the lag screws with bolts / washers / nuts. true story
