First riders test out the world’s tallest water slide – and it’s petrifying

The world’s tallest waterslide, Verruckt, is almost complete at the Shlitterbahn Kansas City Waterpark.

Its strong German name translates to “go insane,” which matches its terrifying height of 168 feet. It offers thrill-seekers a 50-foot drop.

After extensive testing with sandbags, the first-ever human test ride was filmed with attached action cameras, which offer a point of view that will send chills.

Get a look at the first ride down the waterslide, featuring waterpark designer Jeff Henry and ride engineer John Schooley — see the insanity that is responsible for the world’s tallest waterslide.
