Insane Verruckt Water Slide Stands 17-stories Tall

by Shane McGlaun

If you are visiting or live in Kansas City, Kansas, the world record breaking Verruckt water slide at Schlitterbahn is finally opening this week. The opening has been delayed a few times before to allow for more testing. I suspect more testing was code for “give us time to clean the crap off that was scared out of the testers.”

The water slide is verified by the Guinness World Records people as the tallest water slide in the world. Verruckt, which means insane in German, stands 17-stores tall, or about 168-feet. Riders go down the slide in rafts that hold four people and are said to reach speeds up to 70 mph.

I can only imagine the friction burns and mega scale water wedgies that would result from not using a raft.
