4 mansions with insane waterpark backyards

These four mega-mansions all make a splash when it comes to outdoor living, from an over-the-top water slide, to a haunted water park, and even a luxurious water-filled resort built by pop music superstar Celine Dion.

Take a look at these insane pools.

Wet, wild and spooky

But outback is where you'll find the estate's most unusual feature: a giant water park that's "haunted."

But to see the scariest part of this backyard you have to float down the lazy river into the mouth of a menacing skull that leads you into a "haunted grotto," complete with a sound system that pumps in creepy screams and scary sound effects.

As if that's not scary enough, the owner filled the grotto with animatronic mummies, ghosts, bats and ghouls that can pop up and taunt you as you float your way through the spook-fest.

Celine Dion's water world

When Celine Dion designed her seaside mansion on Jupiter Island in Florida, she built her children a massive private water park in the backyard.

The diva's secluded 6-acre property has 486 feet of unspoiled beach-front with views of the Atlantic, but that's tiny compared to the water world she built in the backyard.

It includes two slides, a swim-up bar,and a lazy river with currents that float you through the private paradise. There are several bridges and three spots that simulate a shoreline like on a real beach — only in Dion's pool there's no sand.

There is also an outdoor fire pit in the center of the infinity pool.

The 18,000-square-foot main house includes an indoor/outdoor living room with walls that open to water-filled backyard.

The island retreat was originally listed for $72.5 million. After some time on the market with no offers, Dion dropped her asking price to $45.5 Million. It eventually sold for just $28 million.
