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.

Summit Plummet, Disney World

Get your blood pumping with a nearly vertical drop on a 120-foot slope. After you’ve flown down the “ski jump,” you’ll get to see a digital stop clock displaying your top speed. This may be a Disney ride, but it’s definitely not for the faint of heart!
