With the dog days of summer right around the corner, cool off in the most memorable way possible with the world’s newest, zaniest and best water slides. While your littlest might not meet the height requirement to participate in the maximum exhilaration, you can still take a peek at this bucket list of water slides that is just too cool to not check out.

Liberty Lagoon Waterpark in Baton Rouge, Louisiana 

Ever let your kids roll a penny down one of those huge funnels at museums or amusement parks where you watch it go round-and-round-and-round? How about a life-size funnel perfect for the human penny to mimic that same funnel action? Believe it or not, this water park has just those funnels for visiting park members!
