Hold on! This is THE tallest, fastest, steepest water slide in the world

I advise you to bring an extra pair of underwear. That is, if you can manage to drag yourself up the world’s tallest, fastest, steepest water slide, Verruckt, in Kansas. Located at the Schlitterbahn Waterpark in Kansas City, Verruckt – which translates to ‘insane’ in German – is a jaw-dropping, adrenaline-pumping 168-feet and 7-inches high. How high is that, exactly? That’s taller than the Statue of Liberty and Niagara Falls! Riders – four of you – will be seated in a raft.

You’ll then plummet down inside a tunnel at a speed of 65 mph, then it’ll give you more reasons to barf by sending you up a five-story incline before finally sending you back down 50 feet. We assume peeing in the pool is completely understandable with this one.
