Verrückt - KC 2014 from Schlitterbahn Waterparks on Vimeo
It's Offical- Schlitterbahn in Kansas City has completely gone off the deep end of the wave pool.
This new teaser video for Verruckt (meaning 'Insane' in German) will be the worlds Tallest, Fastest and Steepest Water Slide. Towering a massive 17 stories above the ground, Verruckt will be a four person in-line raft ride that will be a claimed 10% taller then the current record holding slide- Kilimanjaro in Brazil.
Along with the lunatics, they've built their new slide to have an extra dose of crazy- a give story tall 'bunny hill' will be included in the ride. All designed by Jeff Henry, the crazy person who gave us the up-hill water coaster and the inland surfacing attraction.
When the park opens an official 'measuring' event will take place in Spring 2014 to get the slides finished dimensions. Until then, Schlitterbahn seems to be keeping this one pretty quiet!
