I have a fun photo to share today. It's from Aquaventure - the water park they're building at the Atlantis hotel out on the Palm Jumeirah.

When the park opens in September they'll have one slide called 'the Ziggurat' that features a 90 foot near-vertical drop which ends in a clear acrylic tunnel ... in a shark lagoon.

Apparently they have the same thing at the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas, which is where this photo comes from:

Atlantis


Huh.

YAY!! Let's all go to the water park and not swim in the biggest pool there!

Or, go swimming, and in typical Griswold style, get eaten by sharks!

The thing that would really bug me is if you got stuck in the flat tube at the bottom. Now I know that's akin to a bullet getting stuck in the barrel of a gun - you'd have a heck of a lot of momentum to just stop...

But if you did, being relatively trapped in a small tube with sharks all around would suck in so many large ways.

C'est vrai!

The fun part would be to put the shark in the tube. You could even have it filmed and narrated...

"Josh doesn't know, but we have replaced his normal clear tube, with this one filled by a hungry shark.

Let's see what happens..."

Fun for who, Karl? The sharks?
