It’s official: World’s largest waterslide ready to ride in Kansas

After delayed openings and safety concerns, the Verrückt waterslide is now ready to ride at the Kansas City Schlitterbahn. Check out the video of one of the first riders below, and you’ll see why it was named for the German word for “crazy” or “mad.”

That doesn’t, however and sadly, mean it’s yet open to the public. It starts with a 168 feet and 7 inches drop of excitement/terror/adrenaline, then up another 5 story hill and back down. It’ll open for 4-person rafts, so you don’t have to go it alone. It should be opening any day now – keep checking their website for updates.

Would you ride it? I’m not sure if I would – let us know in the comments below!
