The name of this enormous water slide is Verrückt, which means crazy in German, and it’s the world’s tallest water slide. It does seem a bit crazy. Who funds stuff like this? We don’t know, but we like them.
Verrückt will be 17 stories tall (taller than Niagra Falls), you’ll be on a 4 person raft, you’ll be going 65 miles per hour, all after climbing 265 stairs.
This slide will be located in Kansas City at a waterpark called schlitterbahn (sled course) and will open in summer 2014.
The craziest thing is that you won’t be alone. You’ll be on a raft with 3 other human beings mobbing down the slide at 65 MPH. What the hell are you all gonna do during that fall together? Just scream most likely.
“[Verrückt] will attract those adrenaline junkies who are always looking for that next biggest, coolest thrill.” – Layne Pitcher, Kansas City Schlitterbahn’s director of marketing and sales.
