Enter the “Dragon’s Den” if you dare. If you’re too scared, you could challenge your friend to a race down the park’s six-story tall dual racing slides.
This Swedish water park contains plenty of theme park rides alongside its main attractions. Visitors can zoom down log flumes, watch water shows, and even ride airboats.

Tired of shopping? World Water Park in Edmonton, Canada is located in the Edmonton Mall. No matter what time of year, this indoor water park is always a pleasant 86 degrees Fahrenheit.
Unlike most parks, Wet n’ Wild Water World in Australia remains open all year. The park features some of the most thrilling water rides in the world, including a four-person funnel slide, several full loop slides, and water rollercoasters.
You won’t need a parka to play in this “icy” water park. The story says that the park came into existence after a freak snowstorm blanketed the Florida water park in snow. Visitors can participate in toboggan races and even free fall down a 12-story “ski jump.”
You better be on the nice list if you want to ride the world’s longest water coaster in Santa Claus, Indiana. This interesting water park is located right next to a theme park called Holiday World that has themed rides based on several great American holidays. I wonder how they came up with an idea like that…

Those with a sense of adventure will appreciate the “Leap of Faith,” a 60-foot slide that propels riders down a replica of a legendary Mayan Temple and through a transparent tunnel in a shark-filled cove.
