    The lady talked too much in a language I didn`t understand. (Yes, I know it was German.)

    The slide looked really fun, my dad stood behind me and watched it and then just shook his head, joy kill.

    ``such an intense narrator``

    I think that`s just because it`s German, and German is pretty intense.

    oh and what happens when someone loses their speed for some reason? does it just drop them on their face in the loop?

    By "looping" I thought it was going to be a slide that took you back to the beginning, like a roller coaster.

    i can see this going all wrong soon. america is going to copy but try to make it more up and down, but you see you someone FAILS to make the loop, they will go back down and be trapt between the loop and the slant giving speed down to it. i can see my prediction coming true so easily

    I hope the water goes around the entire outside of the slide... I`d imagine that someone is going to technicolo(u)r yawn and paint the top of the loop...

    Had this done to me when I rode on the squirrel cages with some random kid. We spun around for another minute and a half with bits of corn dog and the like bouncing around.

    now if they just droped her right then and filmed her reation....

    "gay shaft" is actually Geschäft, which means deal (so basically the narrator was implying it was a pretty good deal for a waterslide).

    I watched the full report the other day and they said, if you got stuck (that this would only happen if you`re under 40kg, I believe under 90 pounds) you`d just slide back to the beginning of the loop and there`s a hatch where you can get out. So no worries. This slide was built in the Czech Rupublic and it was a prototype for Germany.
    They couldn`t build a vertical loop because the force of too much gravity would cause insuries.
    So, enough with the trivia. :)

    There probably is some equivalent in German for looping, but they like to the cache of English on occasion. The lady said "O mein Gott." Which means the same thing. Gut gemacht Deutschland, Voellig geil!

    No, there is no German word for looping - at least not when you refer to the looping of a roller coaster or something like that.
