Now this is a loooong waterslide!

In the video, Action Park employee Jason Mulder donned a GoPro for NJ Advance Media and rode down a nearly 2,000-foot-long water slide at the Sussex County water park.

    Feel free to correct my math...

    The travel takes place from contact made at :04 to 1:07. Meaning 1:03 of travel, converted to seconds: 63

    Formula: Speed = Distance ÷ Time

    5280 feet per mile, if they traveled the full 2000 feet: 2000 / 5280 = .378 miles

    .378 miles in 63 seconds = 21.6 mph

    or

    34.7618 kmh 9.6560 meters/sec 1900.7999 feet/minute

      Sounds about right, while your calculation focuses on the average speed I think I saw some areas where he was going slower and others where he was going faster, which would mean that he very likely had a top speed of about 40 kmh which is pretty damn impressive.

    That would be awesome to have a 2nd one right beside it used for racing.

    If this slide were a little more extreme, I'd say that wasn't muddy water.

      Oil or lubricant would do the trick

      Sussex County New Jersey. The original Action Park is quite the local legend around here. I've added a link in the related section.

    Smart to use a ski resort to build this on.

    Wow. That looked awesome. When I was a kid, the only waterslide we had access to was in our backyard, and measured about 3m. I want to try this :P

    I just really want to know who peed all the way down and how big a bladder they would have to do that.

    Action Park! Infamously once called "Class-Action Park" thanks to an unfortunate history of dangerous but thrilling attractions.

    Back in business...and (from what I hear) safer.
