Kansas City’s Schlitterbahn waterpark is putting itself on the map in a pretty unforgettable way by constructing a 17-story high waterslide called the Verrückt Meg-A-Blaster. For perspective’s sake, keep in mind that Verrückt (German for “insane”) is taller than Niagara Falls, although presumably you don’t need a barrel to go down it safely.
The Verrückt Meg-A-Blaster is a raft slide that carries four people down more than 135 feet and at top speeds of around 65 miles per hour. According to Schlitterbahn co-owner Jeff Henry, it’s “going to be a game changer for our industry. Our greatest challenge will be to find thrill seekers brave enough to ride.”
I don’t know about all that, but I do know that the drone-shot video of Schlitterbahn’s Verrückt Meg-A-Blaster is straight-up terrifying. You can watch it below, and you should head to Kansas City’s Schlitterbahn (you can check out their website here) this summer if you think you’re Verrückt enough to ride.
Here’s the video:
