TORONTO, ON--(Marketwire - Jul 14, 2011) - Cheapflights.ca, the online leader in publishing travel deals, takes you on a wet n' wild summer fun adventure with its list of the Top 10 Water Parks Worldwide. If you are looking for an exciting adventure, indoor or outdoor, with thrilling water coasters, wave pools, and jaw dropping slides, Cheapflights.ca's list offers an all-ages fun day out. So, with the summer holidays in full swing, forget the overcrowded neighbourhood or backyard pool and, instead, take your summer fun to a new level by checking out one of Cheapflights.ca's picks for the world's best water parks.

Below are five monstrously large options from Cheapflights.ca's Top 10 Water Parks Worldwide. All set national or international records for the size and scale of their entertainment, so they are great destinations for big thrills:

  • Chimelong Water Park - China - If what matters to you are death defying slides and extraordinarily exciting coasters sprawled across the largest water park in the world, then Chimelong Water Park could potentially be for you. Situated in Guangzhou, China, Chimelong opened in 2007, debuting the world's largest wave pool, the world's longest lazy river and arguably the world's greatest water ride -- the Behemoth Bowl. Four riders sit facing each other in a tube, drop 20 metres into a gigantic bowl, and let the centrifugal force drive them rapidly in dizzying circles until they're dropped down a central chute into a waiting pool. Be advised: Those who faint easily should watch from the viewing deck. Search and compare cheap flights to Guangzhou.

  • Noah's Ark Water Park - Wisconsin, United States - The United States' largest water park is an oasis for Midwesterners, eager for a summer dip with no ocean in sight. Noah's Ark Water Park pulls out all the stops across 70 acres. Bragging rights begin with two wave pools, two rivers, a lagoon pool, four children's play areas and more than 60 delightfully impressive slides. The Scorpion's Tail, voted the No. 1 Thrill Ride for 2010 by the Travel Channel, is a 10-storey, nearly vertical slide that drops you more than 50 feet per second. Need we say more? Search and compare cheap flights to Milwaukee.

  • Las Cascada Water Park - Puerto Rico - Not that you need another excuse to visit Puerto Rico -- the turquoise seas and dynamic culture should be enough of a draw. But Las Cascada Water Park in Aguadilla is not to be missed. The largest water park in the Caribbean, Las Cascada offers attractions for adventurists of all ages. Bring the entire family to explore the Crazy River, a manmade whitewater challenge, the Speed Slides, the Twister or -- for family members with heart conditions -- the Tropical Lazy River. Search and compare cheap flights to San Juan.

  • World Waterpark - Alberta, Canada - Water enthusiasts have frolicked in faux waves at World Waterpark in Edmonton, Alberta, for more than 20 years -- though the park's age doesn't show. The world's largest indoor water park welcomes swimmers year-round to zip down more than 17 chutes as high as 83 feet and tackle swells in the world's biggest indoor wave pool. The best part of this tropical paradise: It's situated inside West Edmonton Mall, a behemoth mall, wonderfully stocked with a golf course, ropes course, theatres and -- obviously -- retail stores. Search and compare cheap flights to Edmonton.

  • Sandcastle Waterpark - United Kingdom - It might not initially be on your list of castles to visit in the United Kingdom but, for a break from the ordinary, add it. Sandcastle Waterpark in Blackpool is the UK's largest indoor water park, offering up more than 18 water attractions and a day's worth of fun for the whole family to enjoy. Let the kids navigate the Caribbean Storm Treehouse while those over four feet brave the largest water coaster in the world -- the Master Blaster. For a break from the British bustle, grab a mat and float down the Ushi-Gushi River Creek (translation: lazy river). Search and compare cheap flights to London.

Rounding out the list are: Water Country USA in Virginia; Schlitterbahn in Texas; Sunway Lagoon in Malaysia; Wet 'n' Wild Water World in Australia and Wet 'n Wild in Mexico.
