Once again, the Costa Blanca hits the news, this time with our very famous water park in Benidorm: Aqualandia.
After waiting quite some time for this to happen, Aqualandia has finally opened its doors to one of the world´s largest water slides, called the Cyclon.
The Cyclon measures 200m in length and contains some sort of vortex tunnel with 20m in diameter.
Once you start sliding, the slide simulates a zero gravity feeling, while falling down from about a 12-storey building, on a four seat raft.
You can hit speeds up to 60km/h while you experience twists and crazy turns before making it to the finish line where you drop into a pool.
For those that didn´t know, Aqualandia is not only known for this, as it´s already home to of the highest capsule slides in the world, called Verti-Go, measuring 33m height, where you stand in a capsule and you experience a free fall as the floor disappears under your feet.
News are stating that Aqualandia is now the water park with THE biggest water slides worldwide, but there are still a couple other slides in the world that are superior to these ones, such as:
- Action Park in New Jersey, which according to Guinness World Records is the longest water slide in the world, with 601m in length.
- Kilimanjaro at Aldeia das Águas Park Resort in Brazil is the tallest water slide worldwide, built in 2002, with 49.9m in height.
- The Verruckt in Schlitterbahn Kansas City water park, took the prize for the tallest water slide back in 2014, however it was later rescinded after a 10-year-old boy was killed on the ride two years later.
