Riders test world's longest water slide

New Jersey park to open 2,000 feet-long attraction

It's the World's Longest Waterslide
A new attraction has been making waves at a New Jersey water park.

Yet to be given an official name, it's touted as the world's longest water slide - and even the Guinness Book of World Records agrees.

The 2,000-feet long ride has been erected at New Jersey's Action Park, and the park hopes to open it to the public in the near future.

The video shows park employees testing the ride, but now Action Park have to get ride certification from state authorities in order to proceed with the opening.

Long, wet and wild ride of inflatable fun

The ride will take between 60 and 90 seconds, depending on the rider, and requires 1,000 gallons of water an hour to operate.

Inflating the bouncy castle-like PVC material it is made from is no easy task, with the park's team using two generators and fifteen blowers.

It is made up of twenty 1,000-foot sections weighing 600 pounds each - equivalent to the weight of two fridges.

It was built in New Zealand by the Live More Awesome Foundation which raises awareness for mental health and promotes positivity with unusual initiatives and events.

It was then transported to the park in America where it took 600 hours to construct into the world-beating beast it is today.

It's the second time the park has made it into the Guinness Book of World Records, having opened the world's tallest and only double looping drop box water slide last year, called ZeroG.
