ANOTHER Vertical Looping Waterslide?


Recommended Posts

Found this video on YouTube the other day.

 

 

IMO, if what the guy built in New Zealand/moved to NJ (essentially a giant slip'n'slide) counts for record purposes (was ranked world's longest waterslide), then I say the slide in the above video should claim some accolades as well.

 

So, you be the judge... Did these guys beat the Sky Caliber slide (the one with the weird capsule you ride in) to the "first vertical loop since action park" title?

Absolutely not, because this could never be cleared for public operation. The challenge in creating a successful looping waterslide is not in getting a body moving fast enough. It's in making something reliable and safe enough to open at an actual park.

Surprised to see all the comments on this!

 

Found something else interesting (on the side bar of the first video posted), that, while a little off topic, is still pretty amazing.

Guess this "loop" idea isn't just for coasters, or even slides anymore... Somebody figured out how to RUN through a loop.

Honestly not too surprised by this. You knew aomebody would do it. We all know that it is a simple matter of physics and fear to make a circular waterslide loop.

 

This video was on "Outrageous Acts of Science" for those of you who watch it.
