Take a Ride on Worlds Tallest Water Slide

The world’s tallest water slide is set to open on Thursday, July 10th. The Verrückt slide at Schlitterbahn water park in Kansas City, Kansas, is a whopping 17-stories and 168-feet-tall. Riders will plummet at speeds of 60 to 70 mph on four-person rafts. Fittingly, the slide’s name — Verrückt — means “insane” in German.
