The ultimate splashdown: World's tallest and scariest water slide which is as high as a 14-storey building

By RACHEL RICKARD STRAUS
Hair-raising: The world's tallest water slide towers 41 metres high - the equivalent of a 14-storey building These are the stomach-churning pictures of the world’s tallest water slide. Towering over the landscape at a whopping 41 metres high, it is the equivalent of a 14-storey building. Insano has been listed in the Guinness Book of World Records and brave riders plummet down the slide at a nerve-shredding speed, reaching around 65 miles an hour. The plunge is so steep that although riders travel 41 metres, the whole ride takes just four or five seconds.
Thrill: The water slide towers above the landscape, offering incredible views of the Atlantic Ocean. Dare devils reach speeds of up to 65 miles an hour The Brazilian beach park website describes the Insano as the most extreme equipment of this type of the planet. Constructed in 1989, the thrill ride attracts dare devils from all over the world. Martha Carolina, who works at the beach park, said: 'I'm a Brazilian and I work at the water park - it's funny to watch the tourists starts panicking and sometimes they really start crying. Normally they're all Europeans, Germans, Russians and French.'
Aaaaah!: The stomach slide plummets 41 metres in just four or five seconds One rider commented: 'When you slide down, you basically fly because the fall is too steep so you're in mid-air for most of it.' For safety reasons Insano only allows travel in a single position – on your back with arms and legs crossed. However with such hair-raising speeds it is hard to imagine this would be a problem for most as it is unlikely many would want to plunge down head first. Insano can be found in Fortaleza, Brazil, and for those not distracted by the significant drop below it offers great views of the Atlantic Ocean from the top.
Safe return: At the end of the descent the slide levels off and deposits riders safely in a swimming pool to relax source: dailymail
