The last post led me to this:

The world's deepest swimming pool! Actually I was google searching "toy swimming pools" after admiring Faucon's Gulliver and it lead to the complete opposite.

From the Anvari website:
"The pool itself consists of a submerged structure with flat platforms at various depth levels. The pool has two large flat-bottomed areas at depth levels of 5m (16 ft) and 10m (32 ft), and a large circular pit descending to a depth of 33m (108 ft). It is filled with 2,500,000 litres of non-chlorinated, highly filtered spring water maintained at 30°C (86°F) and contains several simulated underwater caves at the 10m depth level. There are numerous underwater windows that allow outside visitors to look into the pools at various depths. The complex was designed by Belgian diving expert John Beernaerts as a multi-purpose diving instruction, recreational, and film production facility, and opened in 2004."

Somehow that's far less of an environmental abomination than the world's largest swimming pool in San Alfonso del Mar, Chile (though it's excessiveness belongs in Dubai).

Would I float a cake in either? No. I have to draw the line somewhere and believe it or not, the locations I've chosen are (gasp) meaningful!
