Are you a full-grown adult still dying to hit the water park? You’re not alone, honey. I know I absolutely cannot wait to spend the day splashing around under the sun. Now that the summer heat is here to stay, we’ve got you covered on the craziest waterslide adventures around the world. From a near-90 degree drop in Brazil to a Slovenian slide that loops around a full 360°, take a gander at some of the globe’s slickest slides. Bring on summer!
Insano Water Slide, Beach Park, Brazil
This 134-foot high shudder-inducing water slide attracts daredevils from around the world who are willing to risk the drop. As you plummet down the ride, you’re estimated to be going at approximately 104 km/h. Now that’s a crazy ride! If you want to take the risk, it’ll only last 4 or 5 seconds until you reach the bottom. Trip to Brazil anyone?
Scorpion’s Tail, Noah’s Ark Water Park, USA
At 108-feet high, Scorpion’s Tail packs a real sting. The whole slide is 400-feet long and the initial drop will send you plummeting at 54 km/h. The midway loop is an added fear factor, so get ready for a wild ride.
Jumeirah Sceirah, Wild Wadi Waterpark, Dubai
This two tandem crazy slide sits 104-feet above the Wild Wadi Waterpark in Dubai. Cross your hands and legs for this one, because you’ll be reaching speeds of up to 80 km/h. When those doors close and the floors drop beneath your feet, you’ll wonder how you got yourself into this crazy ride in the first place.
Aqualoop, Terme 3000, Slovenia
Perfect for adrenaline junkies, the Aqualoop in Slovenia will definitely get your heart racing. At speeds of 80 km/h, you’ll be rushing around the 360° loops faster than the acceleration of a racecar driver. Ranked as the fourth fastest waterslide in Europe, you’ve got to add this to your waterslide bucket-list.
Summit Plummet, Blizzard Beach Waterpark, Florida
Florida‘s tallest waterslide, the Summit Plummet, sits at 130 feet high and has a total of 360 feet of insane waterslide track to slip straight down. At Disney’s Blizzard Beach Waterpark, you’ll definitely want to get a taste of this fear-inducing waterslide.
Dolphin Plunge, Aquatica Orlando, Florida
Another wild Florida ride is the Dolphin Plunge. Rather than risking it all with death-defying heights, this waterslide plunges you straight into an underwater world. After a drop into the darkness, you’ll find yourself sliding through pods of black and white Commerson’s dolphins. There’s nothing wilder than getting up close and personal with the ocean’s sea creatures.
Leap of Faith, Aquaventure Waterpark, Dubai
Sitting atop the Mayan Temple at Atlantis’ Aquaventure Waterpark in Dubai, the Leap of Faith’s 60-foot body slide will propel you at insane speeds. Heights and speeds aren’t the only crazy attraction for this waterslide though. Slip and slide into a clear tunnel underneath the waters of a shark-filled lagoon.
AquaLoop, Calypso Water Park, Canada
Rushing you at over 60 km/h, this AquaLoop at Calypso Water Park is one of Canada‘s most shudder-inducing rides. It takes less than 2 seconds for you to go from 0 to 2.5Gs, which means you won’t even have time to scream!
