Click through the slideshow below to see our favorite extreme water rides across the country. Who knows—you just might find your next splash-worthy vacation destination.

Dolphin Plunge, Aquatica

You’ll want to keep your eyes open on this ride—the enclosed, see-through slide will send you racing through a pod of black and white Commerson's Dolphins. There are two side-by-side slides, so you can also race a friend down.
