Hippo Water Slide in North Myrtle Beach

North Myrtle Beach decided to bring back a family favorite for the Summer of 2012 – The “Hippo” Water Slide. This attraction has been crowned the World’s largest inflatable water slide! The Hippo stands an impressive 36 feet tall and spreads across the oceanfront a staggering 180 feet long.  The Hippo is not just for kids, but also for adults who are secretly kids at heart (don’t worry, we won’t tell anyone)! After the overwhelming response the water slide received after its debut last Summer, they decided they would go another round of slippery fun with the big guy.

  1. Hey Tom, yep, it sure is! Actually, the Hippo is now the “Trippo”! It’s the same height, but now there are three different slides you can choose from. Same location, near Main Street in NMB.
