The amazing forbidden waterslide in Hawaii

The waterslide is located inside Waipo Valley, in the Hamakua District of the Big Island of Hawaii, according to Daily Star.

The 10-metre, extremely steep waterslide used to be an old irrigation flume designed to transport sugar cane over a century ago. However, now it is part of a 40-kilometre-long irrigation system, which pumps water from the island into the conduit.

There is one problem though – it is illegal. Even though is is government property and restricted to the public, people still get to enjoy it. The daredevils can access it via a trail named the White Road Hike.

The hike takes around 2 hours to complete. On the way, a bunch of “no trespassing signs” are welcoming the risk-takers.In order to get to the top of the slide, you need to use an old, slimy thin rope to pull yourself up.

Hawaiian state officials have called the slide a “reckless type of experience” and are trying to discourage tourists from finding the trail. Those who attempt to find the slide might be faced with a serious fine.
