It certainly makes things interesting.
I LOVE those!
Separates the men from the boys.
You see people walking the course, but they're not paying attention to the slalom spacing.
I always pace them off, but I also try to be discrete (read: sneaky ) about it. LOL!

You can always tell who pays attention, cause they're the only ones that get a clean run their first time through it.

I am also a big fan of "variable chicanes"

People see a series of gates, when in reality it is a slalom....except for the last one which is off set just enough to disrupt rhythm
