Slide Down The Tallest Waterslide In The US

It’s safe to say that adrenaline junkies would jump at the chance to ride the largest waterslide in the United States, but watching a video of the 41 metre-long ride is the next best thing.

The slide is called Daredevil’s Peak, and it’s found in Thrill Waterpark on Perfect Day Island at CocoCay. Perfect Day is a private island owned by the Royal Caribbean International cruise line, who turned it into a massive amusement park.

Daredevil’s Peak is the centrepiece of Thrill Waterpark. It sends riders rocketing down 41 metres of neon-lit twists and turns and even plunges them into darkness inside a black-out section.

If you can’t get to Thrill Waterpark any time soon, you can take a virtual ride down Daredevil’s Peak with this video:

It’s one of seven rides in Daredevil’s Tower, along with the Dueling Demons, twin slides that launch riders straight down in a thrilling drop and the Manta Raycers, where two riders can race each other in open-topped slides. The waterpark is also home to the Caribbean’s largest wave pool.

Perfect Day is a private island exclusive for guests on Royal Caribbean cruises. It also offers helium balloon rides over The Bahamas and the Caribbean’s largest freshwater pool complete with swim-up bar.

If the video isn’t enough to satisfy your inner thrill seeker, you can see a full list of Royal Caribbean cruises to Perfect Day Island here.
