The World's Tallest Waterslide Shoots You into a Pool at 65 MPH



The ride lasts only four or five seconds, but you'll never forget it. The Insano at Beach Park in Porto das Dunas, Brazil has a 134 foot drop. It holds the Guinness World Record for the tallest waterslide in the world.

Pro tip: make sure that your swimming suit is firmly secured to your body before taking the plunge.

People fall way further than 134 feet in freefall when skydiving; air is significantly less dense than water, thousands of feet change in seconds is no big deal when done in the atmosphere. Tens of thousands and then you've got problems, most specifically insufficient oxygen with near-zero air pressure and frostbite from cold.
