Schilitterbahn in Kansas City, Kansas is opening the tallest, steepest water slide May of this year.  It is ginormous and the company building it, claims it will shatter existing world records.

It's called the Verruckt, which is German for "insane".  When completed, brave hearts will climb 264 steps to reach the top, get into four-person rafts, and plunge downward from 17 stories above the earth at a MINIMUM of 65 mph.  At one point, a 5-story hump shoots riders upward and completely out of the raft.

The designers are keeping the official exact height a secret until they have consulted with Guinness World Records.  Would you ride it?
