Major props to the wild people who take their chances losing a top or a major wedgie on the screamer. Living in El Paso all my life and of all the times I've visited Wet N' Wild Waterworld, I've never been on the screamer.

It still is mind-boggling for me that people in El Paso love the feeling of sliding 7 stories down into the water. See, I don't mind falling down several stories at Hollywood Studios Tower of Terror.

At least on that ride, I felt I had somewhat of protection around me than my own bare skin. But if you love the screamer you will love this waterslide attraction in Texas just as much.

One reason I won't slide down the screamer is because of the narrow section of water you dunk down in. But the Royal Flush at The Wetlands in Waco, Texas has drawn quite a crowd for the slides that are 65 feet tall.

Also, Micbergsma's YouTube video below gives you an idea of what it is like to slide down the Royal Flush.

Here is another clip of the Royal Flush at The Wetlands from Round III's YouTube video below.

As you will see from Insider's YouTube video above there is open water for you to fall into. There are a few differences between the Screamer and the Royal Flush slides you should know about.

Possible wedgies/ losing bikini tops

Steep drop

More room to splash down in the water

Not so much of a steep drop
