Verti-Go: The Highest Capsule Slide in the World
By Communications Department
The Aqualandia Water Park has the perfect attraction to have a radical experience full of emotions. Verti-Go is the name of this set of two endless slides — the famous red and green slides. The red slide is 33 meters high and it is the highest capsule slide in the world — and you can only find it exclusively at Aqualandia.
Adrenaline, velocity, speed, and height are just some of the adjectives that our most daring guests mention after having enjoyed and felt this Aqualandia attraction for themselves.
Only the boldest park-goers dare to go on this attraction which is suspended from a 42-meter-high platform and in which the tower has 250 steps to its highest point — that is similar to the height of a 13-story building, and you can get all the way up there in a hermetic, transparent capsule.
At the time of the drop, the rider is atop a trap door that opens with the push of a button controlled by our specialized personnel located at the slide’s starting point. From that point on, the free fall begins, along with its corresponding rush of adrenaline as you pass over the highest slide in the world.
Verti-Go allows the rider to slide down the attraction in just 3 seconds, with a gravitational acceleration that exceeds 100 km per hour in the lesser cases. Thrills are guaranteed!
Everyone who goes down one of the slides of this attraction experiences something unique, enjoying marvelous views of the city of Benidorm while they scream with excitement, feel butterflies in their stomach, and laugh a lot. This is the perfect ride to be able to experience strong emotions like never before in just milliseconds.
The attraction has been open since the summer of 2013 and it took two and a half months to build in order to make it as high as possible, always keeping in mind the necessary safety measures. Thus, the specialists involved in the project studied things down to the most minute details and they traveled around the world to see other slides with similar heights as that of Verti-Go.
The number-one priority of Aqualandia is fun along with safety; therefore, while there is no minimum age for this ride, height is important. For the green slide, you must be at least 1.25 meters tall and for the red slide 1.40 meters.
Year after year, Aqualandia continues to be the leading water park in the Province of Alicante thanks to its innovation, safety, and new attractions. Every summer the park is visited by many customers and we help park-goers to enjoy a day full of unique sensations, emotions, and adrenaline. Aqualandia is synonymous to fun, unique moments and unforgettable memories alongside family members and friends. This is what makes Aqualandia such a special place.
