Waterparks and their massive water slides attract millions of visitors every year. The first waterpark opened in the late 1940s, and ever since, designers have been pushing the boundaries to make slides higher, longer, faster, and scarier. 

The world's tallest water slides are instant attractions and huge money-makers for theme parks around the world.
