Aqualandia is a waterpark, located in Benidorm in the Costa Blanca, Spain. It looks like quite a fun place for those of you who love to splash and hosts 15 water rides and other attractions, including one of the world’s highest capsule slides, multi-track slides, a surf pool, and more.
This summer Aqualandia has opened Cyclón. It is reported to be one of the largest water slides in the world. It measures 36 metres in height which is similar to a 12-storey building. It's a whopping 200 metres in length and those who dare will be swept down tubes and around bends at a speed of 60km/h. In case you weren't aware, this will simulate the feeling of zero-gravity. The slide is so big that it must be ridden on a toboggan along with three other riders.
"you are going to arrive on a large “vortex” with 20 meters of diameter and 45 degrees inclination.The adventure in this big “vortex” ends with a fall in the pool."

The Cyclon is open to ride since being officially unveiled at Aqualandia last month.
Although the ride may now be the 'biggest' water slide in the world, it does not hold the world record for either the tallest or the longest. The tallest is Kilimanjaro at Aldeia das Águas Park Resort in Brazil, which is a massive 49.9m 16 storeys in height.
The longest slide is at Action Park in New Jersey, which is a massive 601m or 2,000 feet in length.
