Universal Orlando Sights

Der Stuka

  • Amusement Park/Water Park

Updated 04/17/2015

Fodor's Review

It's a steep slide with thrills similar to those of the adjacent Bomb Bay, but without the trapdoor drop. Despite that difference, Der Stuka ("Steep Hill" in German) is hard to beat for sheer exhilaration. After climbing the winding six-story platform, you sit down on a horizontal slide, nudge yourself forward a few inches, and then let gravity take over. Before you know it, you're hurtling down a 250-foot-long speed slide that will tax your back and test the security of your bathing suit. This one's a real scream. Express Pass it, or try it very early (or very late).
