World's tallest and fastest water slide coming to Schlitterbahn in Kansas City

Posted Wednesday, November 20, 2013 9:07 AM | Contributed by Jeff

It could take a while to climb the 264 steps to the top of the new water slide at Schlitterbahn. It won’t take that long to get back down at 65 mph or so. The Verrückt — German for insane — will be the tallest and fastest water slide in the world when it opens next year at the Kansas City, Kan., water park.

You put a bunny hop like that after a huge drop in RCT and the dingy is sure to fly off and kill the riders.

Not if you put an tunnel on the "Bunny Hop!".

Friend of mine on FB thinks this is a boat flume. It *IS* a body slide....right?

*EDIT* No, I'm wrong. It's a four-person raft...I didn't see the end of the article.

And thank god. If I ever make it to Kansas City, Kansas I'll be grateful for those non-wedgie rafts.
There's an additional comfort factor for me there, as well. If I have to sit my butt down at the top of a very tall slide I get afraid to push off. (One of my scariest slide rides ever was Der Stuka.) Somehow going over in a boat is much better.
