Top 5 Coolest Slides

5. Jumeirah Sceirah at the Wild Wadi Waterpark (UAE)

Wild Wadi Water Park is considered to be among the top ten Dubai attractions. It is ideally located in Jumeirah, very close to the Burj Al Arab. Their main attraction is Jumeirah Sceirah, the tallest and fastest free-fall water slide outside the United States. It rises to 33 m (110 ft) with riders getting speeds to 80 km/h (50 mph).
4. Slide Inside an Airport (Singapore)

It can be hard to travel with children, which is why Singapore’s Changi Airport was designed to be a family entertainment venue. Among its amenities is a 40-foot tall slide. It’s the tallest slide in Singapore and the tallest slide in any airport anywhere. For every $22 spent in the airport, adrenaline junkies (or really brave little kids) get tokens for two rides on the slide. Visitors who don’t want to travel at the speed of 19 feet a second, can take a ride down the shorter, one-and-a-half-story tall slide located at Terminal 3 Basement 2, which is free.
3. Slide Inside a Mall (Canada)

World Waterpark is the world’s largest indoor waterpark with a size of roughly 30 acres. The World Waterpark opened to public in 1986. It is located in the West Edmonton Mall in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. It has a maximum capacity of 40,000 guests. The highest slides in the park are Twister and Cyclone, which are both 83 feet (25 m) high.
2. Frozen Slide at Disney’s Blizzard Beach (US)

Two body slides on the top of Mt. Gushmore offer thrilling, “chilling” excitement at Disney’s Blizzard Beach water park at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. The top slide, at 120 feet high, offers a spectacular view of the Disney property and is the world’s tallest, fastest free-fall speed slide.
1. World’s Most Extreme Slide (Brazil)

Located in Porto das Dunas, 16 km from Fortaleza, Brazil, Beach Park originated in 1985 out of a trendy beachfront restaurant. In 1989, it opened its water park, the first in Latin America, with three water slides. The Insano is the highest water slide in the world at 41 meters high, a record listed in the Guinness Book of Records. Its height is equivalent to that of a 14-storey building. As a consequence of its height and slope, this water slide provides an extremely rapid descent – taking between four and five seconds – at a speed of 105 km/h. Because of these characteristics, the Insano is considered the most extreme of this type of equipment on the planet.
