Breaking up a concrete pad in my backyard. Any advice?

I need some advice on how to best break up a seemingly indestructible concrete slab in my backyard. It is about 8 feet by 4 feet by 2 feet deep. I've tried a sledge hammer and also a relatively low-power jackhammer, with little success.

It isn't actually 2 feet deep, but is 2 1 foot slabs, basically on top of one another. I can't tell if they are connected in some way. The top slab is pretty smooth, while the bottom slab is sort of pock-marked and seems like it would be easier to break (if I could ever get to it). Any advice appreciated.
