When I think of waterslides, I generally think of Florida. 

But apparently I'm thinking all wrong because the world's largest waterslide is in China!

It's about a mile-and-a-half long, and was certified by Guinness as the world's longest mountain/hillside waterslide, according to UPI.

It's actually a combination waterslide AND rafting adventure.  It gets up to speeds of almost 20 miles an hour and lasts for about an hour.

Which means that absolutely everyone who rides it - pees during it.  

If you're interested, it's in Lishui, China, which is about 400 miles south of Shanghai.
