Real, or computer graphics?


The video clip below purports to show a really big water-slide. I can accept that such a slide could be built . . . but this looks just too perfect. Have a look for yourself.





So, what do you think? Real, or computer graphics? Let us know in Comments.

It's gotta be fake. At the velocity he was apparently traveling at, he would have rolled that inflatable pool over as he would have went right through the far side of it. Not to mention that when he bottomed out, he wouldn't have been getting up so easily!

His velocity leaving the ramp should be no greater than the velocity he had when he passed the ramp's level when he was going down the other side. However, he appears to be going much faster leaving the ramp when than he was when he was going down the other side.

If it IS real that guy is either incredibly smart or incredibly stupid. Neat clip!
