Water parks are tons of fun! Beat the heat with this water slide drawing guide.

Water slides - also called flumes or water chutes - allow riders to zoom along as they sit inside the tube or on a mat or raft. Water parks are often a feature of amusement parks or theme parks.

Water parks with slides have been around for over 100 years. Have you visited one lately?

Did you know? Most water slides are man-made, but some are the result of erosion and the forces of nature.

Scroll down for a downloadable PDF of this tutorial.

For example, in the Dominican Republic, you can tour the 27 Charcos, a group of waterfalls. Some of the falls have natural water slides made smooth by the running water.

Now, it's time to make a splash with this water slide outline. You can design your own cartoon water slide - make it as tame or as scary as you want!

Allow the lines to meet at a point at the top. At the bottom, connect them using a curved line. Then, draw additional curved lines along the sides, giving the cartoon water slide a three-dimensional appearance.
