Xtreme Waterparks: Blowing Up the World's Longest in NJ

"Xtreme Waterparks" gets exclusive behind-the-scenes access to the arrival of the world's longest water slide in America! Slide owner Jimi Hunt takes his insane 2,000-foot-long slide from a New Zealand sheep farm to a treacherous American ski slope located right in New Jersey's famed Action Park. Sprawling at nearly half a mile, this monster slide is the first of its kind and this is the first attempt to build it on a ski slope. To ensure no riders go flying off into the open hillside, Hunt and Action Park owners and engineers work around the clock to carefully assemble all twenty 100-foot sections in time for the first human test day - which is also an epic press day with a live national broadcast and a visit from Guinness World Records. The pressure mounts when an unexpected glitch in the slide is discovered and the team must work through the night to fix it. Will the world's longest waterslide be able to conquer New Jersey?
