The first water slide I ever rode was just a simple playground type at the pool in Hartford. It was painted white at one point and I slid down on it so much, it wore a tiny hole in my suit, scandalous! They eventually stepped up their game to a twisty slide. I wore it out, not my suit, too. Alas, the Hartford pool is long gone. Never in a million years would I imagine seeing a slide like this at an indoor leisure pool at Bremerhaven, Germany. Check out the "Bad 1".
