Check Out the Insane Water Slide Coming to Kansas City: VIDEO


Schlitterbahn, a Kansas City, KS water park is going to welcome Verrückt, the world's tallest waterslide, this summer.

It's estimated to be 17 stories tall but will be officially measured later this year, and here's a virtual tour of the wet thriller. Not for the faint of heart.

Verrückt is German for "insane", of course.

Check it out, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. What could go wrong, right?

  2. But... How do you not fall off? Is there more to it? It looks like even a slight hesitation or movement would cause you to tumble to your death.

  3. According to USA Today, the ride takes place in an inflatable raft. I was wondering how they were going to avoid the inadvertent enemas on this thing.

  5. It looks like a blast but I gotta admit, I would have to watch a couple hundred people successfully do it before I would go for it.

  10. LOL. I'm thinking the average American will never be able to climb those 17 flights. Not unless they get an "all clear" from the local cardiologist.

  11. OK, you have to take STAIRS? Surely there is an elevator. Or maybe the point is that you are so exhausted after climbing 17 flights of stairs that you won't chicken out once you get there?

    That thing looks incredibly dangerous for something not physically attached while falling. No thank you.

  23. "Schlitterbahn" means "slide" in German, but this looks more like a Shitterbahn.
