Some of the best places to enjoy fun in the sun in North America. These water rides are either extremely fast, extremely high or are just really innovative. We've put together a list of five; we'll tell you what it is, and why we think it's cool.
1. Rides at Wings and Waves Water Park, Oregon
These rides carry the themes of aviation, with some of them designed to give you the sensation of flying through water. One such example is the Tailspin, which is a combination of physics, an enclosed tube, bursts of light during the ride, water and lots of thrill.
2. The Discovery Plunge at King Pointe Resort
Riders choose which imagery they’d like to see on the ride, and then, in the midst of drops and curves within a series of enclosed tunnels, multicolor lights and holographic images appear. It ups the water-slide game considerably, and may very well be every Iowan kid’s anti-drug.
5. Scorpion's Tail, Noah's Ark Water Park
This is another one from Noah's Ark. And it will turn your ideas about water slides upside down. It's about 33 meters high, 121 meters wide. Its a nearly vertical water slide.
With all these thrilling water slides to choose from, which one is your favourite?
