Schlitterbahn water slide breaks world record at 168 feet high
Kansas City, MO (CNN) — It's a trip that's likely to make your heart race and Kansas City, Missouri's newest water slide is already breaking records.
The Verruckt at Schlitterbahn water park stands 168-feet high. That makes it the tallest in the world as confirmed by Guinness World Record officials.
It takes just 11-seconds to slide down it because you're going 60-miles-per-hour.
Perhaps that's where the slide got its name. Verruckt means "insane" in German.
The Verruckt opens to the public on May 23rd.
