World's Tallest Water Slide (2)

World’s tallest and fastest water slide, named Verrückt (German for insane), will open next year at the Kansas City, Kan., water park.

The Verrückt water slide will be about 17 stories tall and you will have to climb the 264 steps to the top, to go back down at 65 mph.

Layne Pitcher, the park’s director of marketing and sale, said:

“We have always been family friendly, but this will attract those adrenaline junkies who are always looking for that next biggest, coolest thrill.”
