Love waterslides? Ever imagine getting paid to have endless summer fun-days at the water park sliding down water slides? Well here is your opportunity. UK resort marketer, First Choice is looking for a Slide Tester to approve SplashWorld water parks all over the world.

The position is a six-month gig and pays $32,000 including a one-week vacation at one of First Choice's properties, reports CNN.

For many this is the job of a lifetime. Previous Slide Tester Tommy Lynch had the job for four years. He said to The Mirror that it was the "best job in the world." But apparently it's not all fun and games.

"It can be tough when it's chilly and you have to strip off, but otherwise it's great.

"Getting to check out the flumes is by far the best bit. But there is a serious side and it carries a lot of responsibility," said Lynch to The Mirror.

Lynch is leaving his position for another job and the person that takes his place will rate water rides across First Choice's different properties located in Europe and North America.

Lynch who is from Liverpool, slid down as many as 5,000 slides during his post, reported The Mirror.

"He clocked up 108,000 miles travelling between the 20 resorts in countries such as Turkey and Egypt. Anyone unsure about applying for the job might decide to take the plunge when they realise that after all that fun, the employee will also get a seven-night holiday at one of the all-inclusive resorts," reported The Daily Mirror.

To apply, visit their Facebook page and submit an application by February 26, 2013. The Huffington Post reported that their top five applicants will be invited to a water park in April to compete in a series of challenges.
