For some, just lounging around the pool is enough on a hot south Louisiana day. However, for others we prefer to jump on to some of the scariest water slides at various water parks. Whether its the thrill of spiraling downwards or the rush of being propelled into the water at the end, some folks just can't get enough of the thrills and spills of waterslides Here are six of the wildest/scariest water slides you may ever encounter. Now, while we may not be able to just drive on over to the park that houses each of these, here is where youtube becomes your best friend. Take the virtual ride with us and have some fun. Oh, by the way, there is no need to hold your breath as we approach the end of each slide!!!
