World’s Tallest Water Slide Opens in Kansas

KANSAS CITY, KS – The world’s tallest water slide, “Verruckt” has opened at Schlitterbahn in Kansas City, Kansas.

The Verruckt stands taller than Niagra Falls at 168 feet.

Before boarding one must trek 264 steps to the top, 17 stories high!

The three person rafts send thrill seekers up to 65 miles per hour!

20 traumatic seconds later the ride of your life is over.

Oh and by the way Verruckt, is the german word for “insane”, and this water-slide is definitely living up to its name.
