Click through the slideshow below to see our favorite extreme water rides across the country. Who knows—you just might find your next splash-worthy vacation destination.

Corkscrew Cavern, Roaring Springs Water Park

Idaho's first looping water slide launches riders in a narrowly enclosed tunnel. Drop through a trap door and race through the tube at top speed. G-force will glue riders to the slide even as they do the 360 loop-the-loop.
