Verrückt, the world’s tallest waterslide, is open

It’s the world’s tallest waterslide. « Verrückt », which translates from German as “insane”, is located in the Schlitterbhan Waterpark in Kansas City, in the US. It has just been opened to the public. The top deck is 168′ 7″ (51,4 m) high. You arrive here after a long climb of 264 stairs. Attached to a specially designed raft, three riders litteraly plummet down the equivalent of a drop from a 17 story building, taller than Niagara Falls and the Statue of Liberty (from toe to torch) : 18 secondes of a crazy ride, with an uphill blast and an estimated maximum speed of 65 miles an hour (105 km/h)
