New Season Premieres Sunday, June 9 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT (Nine half-hour episodes; one-hour special)

"Xtreme Waterparks" is back for another season taking viewers on an all-access, adrenaline-filled ride on the wettest, wildest, most over-the-top and exhilarating water rides in the world. From America's only slide with a completely horizontal loop in Saco, Maine, a homemade backyard slide in Vail, Colorado and a jungle slide in Costa Rica that winds more than a quarter mile down the side of an active volcano, this series showcases some of the most insane water slides that will thrill even the craziest adrenaline junkies. This season also features a special one-hour episode that documents the creation and build of the world's tallest and fastest water slide in Kansas City, MO.

In the premiere episode, take a trip to Caneva Waterpark and a ride on the slide that reigns as Italy's most terrifying - with a vicious drop that takes your body from 0-60 mph in 0.3 seconds! Then, head to the top of the Rocky Mountains in Vail, CO to see what happens when you give four brothers dish soap, a big old hill and a whole lot of plastic. After that it's off to the Jersey Shore to visit a ride that will scare your tan off. Finally, it's off to the ski town of Tignes, France at the base of the Alps to experience a 40-feet-per-second, headfirst drop like no other.

"INSANE COASTER WARS: WORLD DOMINATION"

New Season Premieres Sunday, June 9 at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT (Seven half-hour episodes)

Travel Channel jets around the world on a quest to find the most thrilling, terrifying and scream-inducing rides - full of death-defying drops, spine-torqueing twists and impossible inversions. In each episode, four of the world's best coasters go head-to-head for the highest number of points, as voted on by the riders themselves. Utilizing high-tech camera equipment - including remote controlled helicopters and slow motion cameras - viewers are granted behind-the-scenes access and an unparalleled first-person point of view of each wild coaster. This season travels to eight countries and features the world's fastest roller coaster in Abu Dhabi (0-149 mph in 4.9 seconds!), the world's tallest wooden coaster, steepest and more, and shares how some of these colossal creations work - from magnetic braking systems to linear induction motor launches. Get ready for the most insane, pulse-pounding, heart-stopping thrill rides on the planet.

The premiere episode features an epic head-to-head clash between four unique roller coasters from around the world. At Abu Dhabi's Ferrari World, burn rubber at a top speed of 149 mph in 4.9 seconds on Formula Rossa - the world's fastest. Go faster than a speeding bullet and drop over 200 feet on Superman Ride of Steel at Six Flags America in Maryland. Take a Himalayan expedition and try not to shriek on Europe's tallest coaster with Shambhala at PortAventura Park in Spain. And fly at the speed of fear on Tatsu at Six Flags Magic Mountain in California - the World's tallest, fastest and longest flying coaster. Fans at each park have voted - see which one rises to the top!
