World’s Tallest Water Slide Debuts in U.S. This Spring
The Kansas City, Kansas, water park, Schlitterbahn, is building the tallest, fastest water slide in the world.
The Verrückt (German for insane) Meg-A-Blaster is scheduled to make its splash when the park opens May 23.
Obviously, the people of Kansas have clearly lost all their usual Midwestern common sense, being this slide is a 17-story plunge, will propel riders at over 65 mph, and then has a little five-story "bump" toward the end of the ride.
According to kansascity.com:
Four-person rafts will plummet down from the tower and over a five-story hill. It’s not a “wedgie producing body slide.”
It might not be wedgie producing, but I can think of something else it might produce. :-P
