Showcase – World’s craziest waterslides – TODAY Travel

Submitted by on Saturday, August 18, 2012No Comment

No way am I brave enough to handle even half of these, but for those of you who are, you’ll love TODAY Travel’s list of the World’s craziest waterslides!

By Briana Fasone , Travel + Leisure

As you speed along the ship’s top-deck raft ride, waves break at the ocean’s surface 150 feet below. It’s an acrophobe’s nightmare—and could be the most thrilling moment of your next cruise vacation.

We’ve come a long way in the century since the Titanic, when that ship’s heated swimming pool was a mind-boggling luxury. Now it’s AquaDuck, the cruise industry’s first water coaster, that’s making a splash on board the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy. From within the raft ride’s clear acrylic aerial flume (which extends 12 feet over the side of the ship), you’ll experience that heady ocean view.

Slideshow: See where the loopiest, crowd-pleasing waterslides are around the globe

It takes pluck to stare down the AquaDuck and the rest of the world’s craziest, record-breaking waterslides. Some, like Brazil’s 135-foot-high Insano, are traditional body slides, while others  resemble intricate roller coasters and showcase innovation in waterslide technology and design. Case in point: Italy’s new Divertical, which features a unique elevator lift system and speeds more than 65 miles per hour.
