To experience the unique attraction of the world's longest plastic slide, a trip to Colombia is in order. The rainbow slide is nestled in the southwestern part of the country, specifically in the city of Gigante, Huila.

A unique attraction in Colombia

This vibrant, multi-colored slide stretches nearly 656 feet long. Protective helmets are provided to those daring enough to embark on this one-of-a-kind adventure for safety purposes.

Guests ride down on a large inflatable tube, and the experience lasts mere seconds. The speed and duration of the ride are determined by the person's weight. The finale of the ride is usually the most exciting part for many, as it concludes with a plunge into a pool filled with multicolored balls. "Finally, an adult-sized ball pit!," "This brings back childhood memories, I need to try this," are frequent comments netizens make on various social media platforms.

During the ride, albeit short but certainly joyful, you can take in the exotic landscape.

Netizens are captivated by the attraction

The rainbow waterslide is far from standard, and not something you stumble upon in every country. Netizens are undeniably enamored with it.

"It looks like a ton of fun", "I need to go there. I definitely want to try it as soon as possible", "I love such attractions", "Fantastic", are some of the comments netizens leave. Some users have pointed out that a similar slide is also located in Salvador. The slide there boasts vibrant colors and is illuminated at night, although it is shorter than its counterpart in Colombia.
