The World's Longest Waterslide Twists Through the Malaysian Jungle

The record-breaking slide includes a 230-foot slope and lasts three minutes.

Waterslides are like many of life's most beautiful moments: over too soon.


But a waterpark in Malaysia has hoped to make the ephemera last a bit longer by building the world's longest waterslide.


Escape theme park on the island of Penang includes a 3,645-foot waterslide that has smashed world records. The ride lasts three minutes and takes visitors down a 230-foot slope through jungle terrain and tree canopies.

"Breaking the world record was never our intention," Sim Choo Kheng, CEO of Escape's parent company Sim Leisure Group, said in a statement. "I'm always baffled by how rides are made so short and quick. I wanted to build rides that last a good few minutes."
