The Guinness World Records' record for the most people down a water slide in one hour is 213 and was achieved by the City of Madison (USA) at Crystal Beach Pool in Madison, Indiana, USA, on 27 July 2013.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the largest Cha-Cha Slide dance; it was achieved by 3,231 participants at an event organised by Girlguiding North West England (UK) at Pleasure Beach in Blackpool, UK, on 8 October 2011.
Jupiduu, a German start-up, just came out with a 24-carat gold leaf slide called the "Golden Unicorn" that can be yours for € 9,990, or more than $12,500.
At about 57 inches long, that's nearly $220 per inch. So far, the company said it has already received four orders — all of them from Dubai, CNN Money reported.
But the five-figure blinged out toy wasn't enough for one customer, who requested a version embellished with ruby, according to Jupiduu's founder Kai Buschmann.
If you're more into the basics, the company does still offer its slide in blue, pink, green and white for a less lofty price — about $240 to $315, depending on the color.
