Japan's Longest Slide


The slide comes in at an incredible 82 meters in length and is on the top of a mountain with a commanding view of western Kyushu's coastal plain. Watch me scream like a little girl, and have the best slide ride of my life. I haven't had this much fun since my first trip to 6-flags in Illinois. The journey to the end of the slide was not with out its dangers. I dodge trees, try not to smash into the sides, and deal with severe vibration that caused me to lose feeling in my rump.

If you are up to the task, I challenge you to respond with a video of your longest slide ride.

There's a good long one in Nishiwaki, Hyogo at Nihonhesokoen. I recommend using the foam mats to prevent butt burn! :D

I totally gotta find this park.

Hi! I'm a new JET who just found out that I was placed in Oita for the upcoming year. So of course, I'm scouring the internet looking for any and all info I can get my hands on about the place.

Thanks for posting this video. I seriously laughed so. hard. Can't wait to try it for myself!
