World’s tallest water ride open for thrill seekers at Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari

Several days ago I wrote about Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari, in Santa Claus, Indiana. At the time of writing, I knew they had some cool rides, but it wasn’t until I took a closer look at their site that I noticed they just opened the highest water ride in the world – The Pilgrims Plunge.

You really need to see the video to get an idea just how insane this thing is – 10 passengers at a time will drop 135 feet down a water slide, at over 50 mph.

After the jump, a second video showing the ride. Holiday World is now home to two record holding attractions – the park is also where you’ll find the top “air time” wooden coaster in the world.
