Long gone are the days when The Dragon at Fun Mountain was the scariest water slide you could imagine…

The world’s tallest water slide is located at the Schlitterbahn water park in Kansas City. It’s been named Verrückt — which means “insane” in German.

The slide stands 168 feet and 7 inches tall – that’s taller than the Statue of Liberty and Niagara Falls! The first test run for the slide was with sandbags… and the sandbags flew off and got smashed up… YIKES!

Adventure seekers will be able to share this experience as they strap into a 4 person raft that will slide down a jaw dropping 168 foot 7 inch structure, only to be blasted back up a second massive hill and then sent down yet another gut wrenching 50 foot drop for the ultimate in water slide thrills!

The Verrückt opens to the public soon… Road trip to Kansas City anyone?
