World's Tallest Water Slide is the Stuff Nightmares Are Made Of


tallest waterslide

I was never the kind of person you would describe as a 'thrill seeker' - not when I was a kid, and certainly not now.  I've always been more the type of person who realizes the danger in things and then stays away from those things, and one of those things I've always stayed away from are really crazy looking amusement park rides.  As you can see by the photo above, this is one those rides that I'll never be found within 500 feet of.

Currently being erected in Kansas City's Schlitterbahn Waterpark, the Verruckt Meg-A-Blaster is set to be the world's tallest water slide, shattering even the record set by Brazil's 134.5-foot-tall 'Insano.'  The four-person raft slide is going to be not just the tallest but also the fastest one ever constructed, propelling rafts down it at speeds of 65 miles per hour.  Yea.  No thanks.

The final height of the ride has not yet been announced, and it is set to open to brave members of the public next year.  Or should I say, insane members of the public - Verruckt is in fact the German word for insane.

Would you hop on a raft and allow this thing to have its way with you?  Comment below and let us know!
