Engineering the Slide
Jimi Hunt, creator of the world’s longest waterslide, discusses his plans with Aflex Technology engineer Bren Ellis in Nelson, New Zealand.
Should We Use Tubes?
Jimi and Bren talk about the possibility of using different tubes to allow people to travel down the slide.
Inside Aflex Technology
An Aflex worker sews together pieces for one of the various water products the company offers.
Moving the Slide
Volunteers help Jimi get the slide out a window in Auckland so they can test its durability.
Preparing the Slide
The crew films volunteers who are helping set up the world's longest waterslide at Jonkers Farm outside Auckland.
Here Comes the Water!
A water truck sits at the top of the hill waiting to fill the slide.
Ready to Be Tested?
Jimi sets out to walk along the 2,000-foot slide to make sure it’s ready to be tested.
The sun rises on opening day for the monstrous waterslide, which is almost as long as 7 football fields.
