Point Of View Ride From World's Tallest Water Slide

riding-worlds-tallest-water-slide.jpg

This is a point of view trip down the 17-story Verrückt slide at Kansas City's Schlitterbahn water park. It basically looks exactly how you'd expect -- like you're about to die. Also, I didn't know you rode the slide on a raft. I thought you rode it bare-assed. Well not BARE bare-assed, because then they'd have to close the slide after ever ride to wipe off the shit stains, but I thought you just rode it wearing a bathing suit. I guess the raft thing makes sense though because I'd hate to spend the rest of my afternoon at a waterpark trying to pick my swim trunks out of my ass. *looking over shoulder* Dammit, I think my locker key is still in there somewhere.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to me, for having every intention of ditching the raft and throwing myself down that f***er head first, then having my family sue after I die.

    figures this would be in kansas.

    still, why would you even consider being frugal with netting. seriously, what does nylon cost these days, you're seriously going to go over the physics of the slide to cut back on cost so you can strategically place netting only at certain 20 ft sections.... 'murica

    How do you suppose they simulated a human sliding down this chute without killing themselves? Did they send a monkey down first?

    This is one ride I will not be participating in.

    Verrückt means "crazy" in German :P

  • eatingyak

    Does it rely on momentum for the second hill? What if someone is too heavy and slides back down?

    Somehow the netting doesn't make me feel safer. If you fly off the slide and into the netting, you're still some part of 17 stories up and clinging to a net hopefully with out having already broken something.

    Weak. Somehow knowing that there is a raft makes it seem so lame.

  • Verrückt means mad, crazy

  • jasmine nile

    great

    I think the highlight of the entire ride is having to wade through the pool of piss at the very bottom.

  • disqus_k2QxOV9H7Z

    That's too dark to be only piss

  • zin

    That looked... anticlimactic. I was waiting for a launch into space.

    I feel a whole lot less eager to try it out now that I know it's not a free body ride but rather on a raft.
