Water parks, swimming pools, are other aquatic-themed attractions are meant be fun for people of all ages, a place to let your hair down, relax, and just have a good time under the sun. Unfortunately, not all of these places are created equally, as the following list of the most terrifying water attractions in the world can attest. It's one thing to visit a water attraction to swim some laps or kick back, or, in the case of a water park, to go for a thrill-ride on some aquatic amusement. But it's quite another to have the bejesus scared out of you because the attraction is so poorly designed or constructed.
Not surprisingly, some of these aquatic nightmares have been shut down because of safety issues. Still, bafflingly, others remain in full operation. Which is either a testament to some very lucky property owners and marketing whizzes…or to the public's dubious need to scare themselves sh*tless any chance they get.
Let's take a deep dive and look at some of the most frightening water attractions on the planet.
