The Verrückt at Schlitterbahn Waterpark in Kansas City, Kansas drops thrill seekers 17 stories down a tube of rushing water. Verrückt translates to ‘insane’ in German and that word cannot fit this ride any better as riders hurtle at speeds from 60-70 mph.
Park owner Jeff Henry says the ride is “..for the thrill seekers of the world, people into extreme adventure”. We don’t expect to see Grandma on this anytime soon.
The Guinness Book of World Records certified the Verrückt as the world’s tallest water slide. It looks like a doozy and we’ll meet you in line this summer.
