Mammoth, Splashin' Safari, Indiana
Starting its water jets today and launching itself into the record books in the process is Mammoth, the longest watercoaster in the world measuring in at a mammoth 1,763ft long (one-third of a mile).
Like Wildebeest, the previous holder of this title, Mammoth uses cutting-edge hydromagnetic technology to propel six-person inflatable boats at breakneck speeds along a series of rollercoaster-like uphill climbs followed by fast downward plunges. The ride begins with a 300ft conveyor "lift hill" followed by a series of drops, including one three-storey drop while you're tilted at a 45-degree angle.

Surely with the amount of rain we've had in Britain over the past month, we could recreate one of these rides using some scaffolding, a paddling pool and a bit of rum for courage...?
Great buzz,even greater memories!
christother williams and sue.................what a pair of miserables bastards
Have been on the Aqualoop at Terme 3000 and it is a thrill ride BUT IT GETS NOWHERE NEAR 262ft per second. 262ft per second is 288km/h or approximately 180 MILES PER HOUR.
