The current holder of the Guinness World Records longest waterslide certificate is a theme park in New Jersey called Action Park. It measures 601m in length. Once completed, the slide in ESCAPE Theme Park will officially beat the current record holder.
Escape Theme Park chief executive officer Sim Choo Kheng said that breaking the world record was never their intention.
“I’m always baffled by how rides are made so short and quick. I wanted to build rides that last a good few minutes.” he mentioned.

What makes this particular slide unique is the fact that it’s built within the forest, without the aid of heavy machinery that may damage the surrounding flora and fauna. He added, “I am overly concerned over the environment here so we tried our best to maintain the greenery by not chopping down the trees. We reckon the slide will be the main attraction when completed,”.
