the most beautiful water slides in Europe

Fast or leisurely, curvy or steep, indoors or out – Germany and Europe have an incredible number of water parks with a variety of colorful slides. The different attractions inspire children, adults and adrenaline lovers. We have put together a small selection of the best slides for you.

1. Netherlands: the fastest sliding bowl in the world

Along with the lightning-fast Tyfoon slide, the Cycloon bowl is one of the biggest attractions at the Duinrell amusement park and campsite on the outskirts of The Hague, The Netherlands.

In this turbulent slippery, you will be launched at a maximum speed of 60 km / h from a height of 15 meters in a colorful “bowl”, you will want to go around in circles and finally clap your hands through a hole in a collecting tank.

If you are still unsure, you can look at the centrifuge from a safe distance from above on a “catwalk”.

The water park “Tiki Park” is the heart of the amusement park and bungalow. According to operators, it is the largest water park in the Benelux. There are a total of 21 slides with a total length of 1.5 kilometers. Admission costs 22.50 euros for a three-hour stay.

2. Denmark: The “Tornado” in the Aquadome

You don’t move as fast as a tornado on the slide of the same name in Billund’s “Aquadome Lalandia”. But the dizzying section in the middle of the 84-meter-long attraction certainly lives up to the name.

In the family slide, you sit with up to three other people on a rubber raft and slide a quick tube with a 60 to 90 percent slope into a circular funnel. After the raft has stabilized again, it creeps into the target pool.

“Lalandia” operates three water parks of the same name in Denmark. According to the company, the Billund facility is one of the “largest water parks in Scandinavia” with an area of ​​10,000 square meters and eight slide areas. The smaller towns in Denmark are located in Rødby and Søndervig.

3. Italy: “Captain Spacemaker” breaks records

From a 42 meter high tower in the “Caribe Bay” open air water park in Italy you could really enjoy the wonderful view of the beautiful Adriatic coast – if it weren’t for the entrance to the highest water slide in the world.

In the “Captain Spacemaker” you descend very quickly from an incredible height of 42 meters. You can reach speeds of up to 100 kilometers per hour and even feel weightless for a moment. Then you run along the straight at high speed before being slowed down in the exhaustion tank.

The “Caribe Bay” amusement park is located near the town of Jesolo in the province of Venice. According to the operator, the structure is the largest amusement park in Italy. At the ticket office, day tickets for adults cost 36 euros and for children (up to 1.40 meters) 32 euros. Children under one meter in height do not pay admission.

4. Switzerland: downhill slides near Zurich

The new attraction “Racer Slide” at the Meierwiesen outdoor pool in Wetzikon near Zurich in Switzerland is like a racetrack!

As soon as the starting light changes from red to green, visitors glide up to three lanes next to each other. Timekeeping ultimately reveals who won the slide competition. Who takes the two-digit eight better? Is there an ideal line? And which scroll position is the fastest? The best way to find out is at the next race. And you don’t have to wait long for that, because a big advantage of the racing slide is the short waiting times.

The idea for the “Racer Slide” came from young people: they collected 900 signatures. Eventually the board voted in favor of the project. The facility, which costs the equivalent of € 575,000, opened in 2021.
