CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Carowinds' Carolina Harbor Waterpark features new water slides in the Black Beard’s Revenge complex.

Pirate’s Plank is a 6-story high slide where you begin standing up, and then the floor drops from beneath you.

FOX8's Shannon Smith tried out the slide before the park opened completely to the public.

You can take a look at the 10-second thrill ride in the video player above.
