Safety Last: Water Slide Off Roof With Full Loopty Loop

water-slide-loopty-loop.jpg

This is the water slide some good ol' boys built off a roof, complete with a 12-foot loopty loop. The first guy to try it falls mid-loop and hurts himself pretty bad. The second guy to try it falls mid-loop and hurts himself moderately, but not badly enough to not try it a third time (this time being towed in by a rope attached to a truck) and complete the loop flawlessly. Finally, the age old "How many rednecks does it take to complete a loopty loop water slide?" question has been answered. I counted eight. Plus the truck. Rednecks can't do shit without a truck.

Hit the jump for the video.

Thanks to Peter, who's convinced they were wetting the slide down with insecticide. That or weed killer.

  • Great post thanks............

    So this is what they call "Extreme Slip n' Slide".
    BTW they really have a festive antenna on their roof.

    It might have worked better if they'd made it an eliptical loop. The perfectly round circle loop isn't as efficient.

  • DeathBotGamma

    It would be better if they didn't pound a couple of nails In on the slide path.

  • Shaun Deacon

    Tell them to watch Nitro Circus where Travis Pastrana already did this and did it much, much better.

  • American Wearwolf In London

    Yea with their disposable income and all

  • Captain Matticus, LP Inc.

    For Science!!

    What a massive failure. Even a high school physics student should be able to make estimates for the minimum height requirements for the ramp. For the record, the ramp needs to start more than 1/4 of diameter higher than highest point on the loop plus any allowance for friction.

  • Bubbubsky

    Keep in mind one thing, though: they're probably dumb.

  • baal

    They should have used a loop that was less round as well (more clothoid).

  • you guys are fags

    like any of you pussies would ride out a loop in nothing, but a bathing suit. lmao! haters

  • Konstantin

    This one? No. You have to be a masochist to ride this one. But one built to specs? Sure, why not? It's probably the safest thing to ride a loop in. Fewest number of things that can mechanically fail.

  • william wallace

    um... do they need to raise the 15 000$ for the first guys hospital bill?

  • Syphon

    Could have been to develop it to not need the car pulling you?

  • McfeelySmackup

    what kind of shitty redneck house doesn't have rain gutters?

  • WhiteEagle2

    That would have been awesome if the guy forgot to let go and just got dragged out the of the loop.
