8. Kilimanjaro, Aldeia das Águas Park Resort, Brazil
One out of every 20 riders will back out before finishing the 234 steps that it takes to reach the 163-foot tall Kilimanjaro slide. It’s taller than both Brazil’s Christ the Redeemer statue and the Statue of Liberty. This ride is also a body slide, meaning you’re thrown at a record speed of 57 mph and spat out onto the pool at the end before you even get your bearings together.
