World’s Highest Water Slide

Part of a water park near the Brazilian city of Fortaleza, Insano is known as one of the most thrilling water park attractions in the world. Constructed in 1989, it still holds the record for the highest water slide on Earth, at 134ft high. That’s as tall as a 14-storey building, in case you were wondering. What makes Insano ‘the most extreme equipment of this type on the planet’ (according to the beach park’s official site) is the very steep slide that really lets gravity do its number on anyone crazy enough to try it. Apparently, the whole decent takes just 4 to 5 seconds but during that time you can reach speeds of up to 65mph. That’s as fast as a Ferrari.” w/ photos + video
