You'd Have To Be Slightly Insane To Try The Verrückt, The Tallest Water Slide In The World
You've probably tried a water slide before at some point during your life
The Verrückt is the mother of all water slides, as it is now the fastest and tallest water slide in the world
The Verrückt is officially the world’s tallest water slide, according to Guinness World Record officials, who confirmed the ride’s height in May. The previous record was held by a water slide at the Águas Quentes Country Club in Rio de Janeiro, named the Kilimanjaro.inquisitr.com
The Verrückt is 51 metres tall and located in Kansas City in the United States
Just to put that in perspective, the Statue of Liberty is 46 metres tall
While the Niagara Falls comes in at 50 metres tall. That's a huge drop.
Be prepared to climb 267 steps, or 17-storeys high to get to the top of the slide
How fast will you go? Just imagine speeding on the NKVE at 100KM/H
It's expected to hit speeds of up to 65 miles-per-hour. And when you ride you must be velcro strapped into a very large raft (which is good because you would have no butt if you did this bare bottomed).io9.com
Located in Kansas City, the Verrückt launches four riders at a time down a near vertical drop at speeds over 65 miles per hour.inquisitr.com
The ride was recently tested using humans as test subjects and it looks terrifying
PS: The word Verrückt literally means 'insane' in German. Would you try it?
