Longest mat water slide is 1,111 metres in Malaysia

The joy of a water slide usually ends in less than 30 seconds at a regular water park. However, ESCAPE, an outdoor theme park in Penang, Malaysia, has created a slide that stretches for 1,111 m (3,645 ft 0.1 in). That's longer than the Burj Khalifa (the world's tallest building) is tall! 

Take a virtual ride of the slide in the video below - you won't be able to stop watching! 😵💦

Hidden among a forest hillside in Penang, Malaysia, the longest inner tube / mat water slide zig zags down and around the hill lasts for a full three minutes. 


How does it compare? This slide is...

  • Longer than the Burj Khalifa (the world's tallest building) is tall
  • Over 3x longer than the Eiffel Tower is tall 
  • Not as long as long as the largest model train set which is over 15,715 m (51,558 ft 4.78 in)!

The design ensured no trees were cut down in the creation of the water slide and the process took around eight months.


ESCAPE is a fun destination with exciting rides and games hosted in a natural environment. The slide is built around a rainforest, which made it challenging. ESCAPE couldn't use heavy machinery like cranes as this could damage the trees and wildlife.
