Floating in the pool is fun, but sometimes you have to kick it up a notch and go for a tricked-out water slide. Whether you’re a waterpark daredevil or more of a lazy river type, you can appreciate these off-the-wall water slides. 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.

This five-person raft ride is a dance party in itself. Rock out to the music of your choice (disco or country, they have it all) as you’re propelled through drops, loops and back-to-back curves. A dance party and a water slide all in one? Sign us up!
