The Verruckt Meg-A-Blaster Will Be the World’s Tallest Waterslide

Schlitterbahn Kansas City Waterpark is building the world’s tallest waterslide, the Verruckt (which means “insane” In German) Meg-A-Blaster. The final height and speed of the slide won’t be released until it opens to the public in Spring 2014, but it’s about 17 stories high and will outstrip the current record holder, the Insano in Brazil which measures 134.5 feet tall and reaches speeds of 65.2 mph.
