World’s longest waterslide in New Zealand

The world’s longest waterslide is dug into a hillside in Waimauku near Auckland, New Zealand. Only 2000 people will have the honour of riding the waterslides, with one measuring 650 meters long built by New Zealanders Jimi Hunt and Dan Drupstee, of the “Live more Awesome” charity last weekend. The world’s longest slide was open for only two days to raise funds and awareness of depression.
