If you thought your summer list of things to do was complete, get ready to add one more thrilling Texas experience that has the world’s attention.

BSR Cable Park in Waco released aYouTube video of its newest, wildest attraction, The Royal Flush, last week. After less than six days, the video has received nearly 5 million views.

The Royal Flush is far from your run of the mill waterslide. In the viral video, thrill seekers are launched off one of the three steep slides before being propelled high into light of the golden hour for a chance to flip into some cool stunts. One daredevil even rides his bike down the slide.

After being shot into the air, the sliders land in a 15 feet of water, General Manager Royal Wiseman, who the slide is named after, said in a phone interview.

Wiseman said the Royal Flush is a trifecta of slides including a kiddie slide, all at different levels of steepness. Since the music video-style footage has gained popularity, the attraction has been a magnet to summer revelers in its first few months of operation.

“It’s new for the summer,” Wiseman said. “It was built over the winter and finished in April.”

Safety precautions make being flushed by The Royal Flush in real life a little different.
