The world’s tallest slide, which has just opened at the Schlitterbahn waterpark in Kansas, is taller than Niagara Falls and the Statue of Liberty.
It’s been called Verrückt, which roughly translates as ‘insane’ in German.
The ride hasn’t opened to the public yet, but it’s been tested by two men who know it very well. Waterpark innovator Jeff Henry and ride engineer John Schooley were the first two humans to face the thrilling 168ft drop.
When the ride opens to the public, only those with strong stomachs should take the plunge. You’ll have to climb 264 steps to reach the top of the ride, velcro straps are used to make sure you don’t fall out of the raft, and you’ll hit speeds of 65mph. We’d wait a few hours after lunch if we were you.
