空调、西瓜、冰淇淋——我们似乎有各种各样的“避暑神器”,但是比起炎炎夏日的水上运动,这些都弱爆了!考验勇气的旋转滑道、紧张刺激的水上过山车,水上乐园让我们在高温烈日里也能幸福感爆棚。

The following are a few special and well-known water parks around the world. Take a good look, and know what the real water parks look like.

Noah’s Ark
诺亚方舟水上乐园
Location: Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin, US
位于:美国,威斯康辛州,威斯康星山谷
Highlight: Thrilling rides

Noah’s Ark offers many water slides. The most notable ride is the Black Anaconda. At more than 400 meters in length, it is the US’ most thrilling water coaster and sends riders spiraling down at speeds of up to 48 kilometers per hour. Then rushing water pushes riders up the creature’s six humps and wraps them up in its dark coils.
诺亚方舟水上乐园拥有诸多水滑梯,而其中以“黑色水蟒”最为著名:它全长超过400米,是美国最为惊心动魄的水上过山车,其螺旋而下,时速可达48千米/小时;游客会在湍急水流的推动下六次达到其顶峰,并在其黑色的“隧道”中不断盘旋。

The Time Warp, the “world’s largest bowl ride”, features a 21-meter descent, while the Scorpion’s Tail drops riders down a trap door into an almost inverted loop. Plus, with 18 indoor water parks, Wisconsin Dells gives water lovers a chance to try out more fun.
虽然“时光隧道”被称为“世界上最大的圆形过山车”,拥有21米的下降高度,但是诺亚方舟水上乐园的“蝎尾”会通过活板门将你直接送入几近九十度的回环滑道。顺便说一句,威斯康星山谷中共拥有18个室内水上乐园,可谓水上运动爱好者的福地。

It’s a fully functional resort, featuring a theme park, an artificial rainforest, a lagoon, a beach, steam baths, saunas and many shops and restaurants. One of its major attractions is the Tropical Islands Dome, a free-standing hall. It is large enough “to accommodate the Statue of Liberty standing up and the Eiffel Tower lying on its side”. There are also several water slides and other activities that people of all ages can enjoy.

It is one of the largest water parks in Asia. With its advanced technology, it also debuts many new aquatic facilities in the industry. The Family Boomerango satisfies the needs of the whole family.

They end their trip by gliding over a transition hump and landing in a splash-down pool. Another of the park’s rides offers a tube conveyor that transports riders up the 19-meter-tall tower. The park has implemented a special water treatment system that ensures safe PH levels and removes harmful germs.

水立方曾是2008年夏季奥运会的国家游泳中心,在奥运会之后被改造成水上嬉戏乐园。

Its interior design is quite unique. Giant amoeba figures hang from the ceiling, jellyfish-shaped objects float around in the water, fish spin overhead, water tubes crisscross everywhere, and a water ride circumnavigates the scene. Add a rich blue and pastel color scheme, and you feel like you’re in the movie Avatar. The park offers 10 rides and other attractions.
其室内设计十分独特;巨大的“变形虫”悬在房顶,“水母”飘在水域四周,头顶还有摇摆嬉戏的“鱼类”,纵横交错的管道随处可见,一条水滑梯将所有景色尽收眼底。水立方湛蓝色的柔和配色让你仿佛置身《阿凡达》的电影场景之中。乐园里还有10条滑道和其他让人流连忘返的景点。
