Dream job of testing water slides up for grabs

Testing water slides

A holiday company has put up one of the planet's most fun jobs - a water slide tester- on offer.

First Choice wants someone to travel the globe trying out the exhilarating chutes at its SplashWorld resorts and the tester will be 20,000 pounds for the six-month contract, the Mirror reported.

Fun junkie Tommy Lynch, from Liverpool, who was a water slide tester for four years called it "the best job in the world."

Lynch, who hung up his trunks last month to take a new job, hurled himself down slides about 5,000 times during his stint.

And he clocked up 108,000 miles travelling between the 20 resorts in countries like Turkey and Egypt.
