Sorry for reviving a dead topic but seemed a better place to put this than a new one.
What could be better than that a 1.3km long Glass Slide down a mountain? Well how about twin racing glass water slides with a combined length of over 3km? These weird and wonderful contraptions can now be found in Qingyuan, China

And if you want to watch a POV video of the original Taihang Mountains glass slide you can here!
The ride seems to waver from incredibly slow (almost stopped) to breakneck speed at random although perhaps the best feature is riders are given a small cup to splash other people with. Only in China.
