The 20 Most Terrifying Water Attractions in the World

Generally water parks and swimming pools are supposed to be a fun way to cool off on a hot day, but sometimes the designers get things horribly, horribly wrong.

This is a list of the most terrifying water attractions in the world. Some are now closed because of their safety hazards (credibility), while others just make you cringe at the thought of what could happen. Chillin' with alligators? You got it. Swimming with sharks? You bet. We can't make this stuff up, people.

Sit back, relax, and be grateful that you're currently sitting safely on your couch, dry as dust while you read about this "great" water attractions.

    The Icebergs Hotel Pool

    Since man first left the caves and started wearing pants, he's been defying nature wherever possible, but the pool at the Icebergs Hotel in Australia is an exceptional affront to nature and all its glory. 


    Its constructors took one look at the ocean and said "Man, I wish that was a swimming pool," and proceeded to push the ocean back twenty feet.


    Waves regularly crash into the pool, and they can get quite violent, presumably because there's supposed to be a f*cking ocean there.


    


    "In retrospect, this may have been a bad idea."


    And despite all this, people still swim in the thing, which is strange because it's essentially just a walled in piece of ocean. They can't keep regular pool water in it because the ocean keeps getting in. So why wouldn't you just swim in the normal ocean, where you aren't getting knocked on your ass by a wave four times taller than you every minute?




    Why does every picture of this thing look like a shot from the Day After Tomorrow?
