In pictures: the biggest, scariest waterslide you’ll see today.

The World’s Biggest Waterslide is not for the faint hearted. At 14 storeys high, and reaching speeds around 105 km per hour as you slip down, it takes serious guts (or insanity) to brave it. The Beach Park in Brazil is home to the delightfully named Insano.

So the big question is: would you dare try it?
