Heading to the biggest, most entertaining pools in the world must be a very exciting idea. Swimming, in general, is a relaxing and fun activity to enjoy our vacation, which is why we always book flights to destinations where we’ll find beautiful, warm beaches, and book hotels where we’ll have an access to a swimming area.
However, there are some pools around the world that were created to amaze all travelers and to pump adrenaline in the bodies of those who admire adventure.
So if you are a fan of thrills and you’d love to share an experience that may cause your heart to literally jump out of your chest. Then these 5 pools will blow your mind because they are the world’s most fascinating pools.
The Cage of Death
Located in Darwin, Australia, the cage of death is one of the unique pools in the world, and for a good reason: They put you in a cage and lower you into the pool where the hugest crocodiles –almost 2 meters long- can swim all around you, and by the way, they have over 2 hundred different types of crocodiles!
If you are looking for an adrenaline-seeking experience, then the cage of death is the one to try. It would definitely be the experience of a lifetime, that’s if you are brave enough.
Swimming at a rooftop is definitely fun and exciting, but there is an apartment in Houston, Texas that took that fun to the extreme level. At the 42 second floor, there is a pool that is hanging 10 feet beyond the building with a glass floor, which gives the swimmers an illusion of swimming in the air.
Unfortunately, this pool is private and accessible only to people who live in that building. So if you are interested, move in there or befriend someone who lives in that luxurious building.
Meanwhile, let’s imagine how it would feel like floating in the water while watching people and cars passing by beneath us. It indeed gives a terrifying sensation that is also very joyful.
Located in Brussels, Belgium, Nemo 33 holds the record of being the deepest pool in the whole entire world. Since its opening in 2004, divers and tourists were fortunate enough to explore what most likely feels like being in the dark depth of the ocean. The pool’s maximum depth is 113 feet.
This pool is genuinely amazing, and you can visit it. But since it is a very popular tourist attraction, you will need to book in advance.
Have you ever experienced swimming in a volcano? Let me rephrase that… Are you ready to swim in a volcano? Yes, I thought so!
The Crater is a naturally made pool in the heart of a volcano, which now looks like a cave. It is definitely a destination that must be number one on your travel bucket list. It is 55 foot tall with naturally heated water all year long, which means you can visit it any time and the pool will perfectly be heated for you, even if it was raining over your head.
This amazing pool is located in Midway, Utah. Moreover, they say that the water is also therapeutic. Could it get any better?
The Pool Illusion
At first, you will think that there are people drowning at that “normal-looking” pool, but in fact, it is just an illusion that the artist Leonardo Erlich created to trick your eyes and brain into thinking.
This pool is a permanent exhibition at the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art in Japan. The optical illusion was literally created by 10cm of water being housed between two sheets of glass on the top.
This pool is technically not usable, but it is too cool and fascinating to not be mentioned and it definitely deserves number one on this list. The museum allows visitors and tourists to view the pool from above and below to fully absorb and experience the magic of this illusion.
