looks like fun but I've no idea where to find that.
Just to offer an idea, could you fill that gap with an air matress like they use for stunt falls in films etc.
At school our high-jump pit was sand and somebody donated some foam to make it softer. the foam pieces just moved out of the way as you landed on them. they had air matresses at the olympics and it looked much more comfortable.

Look for gymastic supply companies or track-and-field suppliers.  Sometimes you can find used high-jump or pole-vault practice pits for sale.  You don't need the covers, so don't worry about re-covering them.

Sounds like a big pit.  An 8x8x6D should take less than 1,000.

I guess you don't want to pay for an air pit either.  An 5x10 air only (no pad on top) runs $1400.

That's a very low price!   Half of what some other sites are quoting.  What's the shipping like from New Mexico?

if I can just find a seller for $1 buck like before that would be the best..
