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.

Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing a Water Slide
How to Draw a Great Looking Water Slide for Kids, Beginners, and Adults - Step 1
1. Begin the water slide outline by sketching the first slide. Use two long curved lines that run roughly parallel in an "S" shape.
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.

3. Complete the bottom of the slide using curved lines. Then, draw two parallel horizontal lines, indicating the ground.
Near the top of the slide, enclose two narrow horizontal rectangles. Connect these to the ground with a pair of vertical lines. This indicates the platform used to access the slides.

4. Draw pairs of straight, vertical lines between the platform and the ground and on top of the platform. Draw a pair of horizontal lines halfway between the platform and the ground. This is the landing between flights of stairs.
Above and below the landing, draw a diagonal line. Then, draw a zigzag line parallel to it, enclosing each staircase.
