Water Slides are a popular form of slide designed especially for indoor or warm-weather use at most water parks. Water slides come in a variety of sizes and riding techniques. Some slides simply require riders to stand directly on the sliding board, or in a tube or raft designed specifically for use with the slide. Some water slides require riders “sit down” on a cushion or foam that is specifically designed for use with the slide. All water slides, regardless of their type, are designed to give riders the sensation of sliding down a slide with only gravity.
Slides can be categorized according to their difficulty level and depth. The “white” water slides are the easiest to master. They have a straight slide that allows for you to coast down the slide easily with little effort. These types of water slides are usually only suitable for novice “walk-overs” or “riders”. The more complicated and more challenging “white” slides can only be used by experienced “rollers” who have more control.
Tube rides are the most common type of water slide
These can be either wind-powered or electric. There are two different ways to ride a tube ride; either up against the wall of a tube track or on an actual moving “tube” similar to a zip line. Many tube rides can be combined with other attractions, such as bounce houses and other in-water activities. Tubing can be a great way to have fun with your family while also enjoying the attractions at water parks. Tube rides can be dangerous so make sure your children have helmets.
Another common feature on most water slides is the “Gravity Falls”. Gravity Falls are where you will see swinging ropes that will eventually lead riders into a drop off area. This is a great place for kids to explore the different levels and interact with their peers. Although this feature requires more skill than just jumping from the slide into the air it is a great way to enjoy the water slides.
Some of the other features that may be found on a water slide are friction features. Friction is an effect that causes something to move in physical systems. There would be friction if two ships were sailing across the ocean. In a swimming pool, friction is created by swimmers pressing against one another when they enter the water. A friction-free water slide allows you to glide along with no resistance from your muscles. These types of water slides are called “Gravity Falls”.
