This absurdly fast Slip N’ Slide will surely leave you nauseated

Look away if you aren't a fan of merry-go-rounds.

Leave it to the Australians to take the relatively innocuous fun of a Slip ‘N Slide and turn into the nightmare of a neverending nausea-inducing thrill ride.

Some folks from Down Under rigged together a contraption that spins you at sickeningly fast speeds around a circular Slip ‘N Slide clone, and flings you into the abyss when you inevitably lose grip.

Check out this admittedly awesome invention in the video below:

The spinning water slide ride was created to celebrate Australia Day, which marks the anniversary of the arrival of the first fleet into country in 1788. It is made of a Hills Hoist (a very Australian clothing line) and some water hoses.

All of which is good news, since you can use the device to dry your clothes out if you do somehow survive the high-speed death trap.
