That's correct this water slide in New Jersey is two-thousand-feet long. That's getting pretty close to half a mile. In this video you'll get a first hand look at what it's like to ride the slide. It takes over a minute to get all the way down. That's almost a ride long enough to make the standing in line worth it.

Here's another video of water slide. This one is in Waco Texas. The caveat in this video is the rider chooses to go down backwards. I think it all works out well until he hits the incline. That's when the expression on his face tells it all. He looks a lot like Tracy Wirtz looked when she rode with the Air Force Thunderbirds.
