5 of the world’s wildest water slides

It's heating up out there, which means you and the fam will likely be searching out ways to cool down over the next couple months. That probably means at least one trip to the chlorine rivers of your local water park, where you will undoubtedly be tempted to risk life and limb simply to plummet down a giant wet slide.

But all rides are not created equal, so if you really want to challenge your intestinal fortitude, search out the parks that hold these truly spectacular slides.


Location: Beach Park, Fortaleza, Brazil

Everything you need to know about this water slide — or water cliff, we should say — is in its name. This is an insane water slide.

Standing a stomach-churning 41 meters (that's 14 stories) high, Brazil's Insano is officially the tallest water slide in the world. Unofficially, it's the one that gives us the most willies. After what looks more like stepping out of plane than scooching down a slide, riders plummet down the near-vertical ride for about four or five seconds, during which they'll reach the ungodly speed of about 65 mph. The ride then terminates with what the creators call a 'relaxing dive into the swimming pool.' Relaxing might not be the right word.

Nice article. Thanks for sharing this. I need to get to Holiday World. Hopefully, no SPICS will be there farting out beans and corn in the water.

A ride on my cock for the right girl would be wet and wild too.
