Insano, the crown jewel of Brazil’s giant water park, Beach Park, is the tallest freestanding body slide in the world. Daring riders freefall from the top—about the height of a 14-story building—to the bottom of the steep drop at speeds of up to 65 mph.
Built in 1989, the 135-foot-high ride held the Guinness record for the world’s tallest water slide up until 1999, when it was beat out by the 193-foot Kilimanjaro in Rio de Janeiro. Still, Insano does justice to its name by being the tallest freestanding body slide and is certainly one of the most radical rides of the planet.
It’s located in a water park with superlatives of its own: Beach Park is the largest aquatic park in South America and one of the largest in the world. It has all you need to enjoy Brazil’s hot sunny days: rides, pools, saunas, ecological walks, artificial rapids or the beloved Insano, the water slide as tall as a 14-story building.
