Often, holidays are just about relaxing, eating and having a good drink. Sometimes, however, they are about entertainment. Thats what probably Escape Theme Park thought when they decided to build the world's longest water slide!

The water slide will be opened in August 2019 after years of planning and construction and will be 1,170 meters long and 78 meters in height. This means that the ride will last for around 4 minutes from the hilltop until the theme park's pool. It will be an interesting ride, since the water slide goes through the jungle.

Our plan was to build a water slide which would enable visitors to view the whole park and we did not intend to break the world record. Nevertheless I am proud of what we have achieved CEO Sim Choo Kheng for Channel NewsAsia

There will be a 400 meters cable car connecting the foothill with the hilltop, from where you can choose other rides too, such as: zip coasters, sleds down the hill or sliding tubes.
