Schlitterbahn, a water park in Kansas City, Kan., is building the tallest, fastest water slide in the world.
The VerrÃ¼ckt (which means â€œinsaneâ€ in German) Meg-A-Blaster will make its debut next May when the park opens. The companyÂ recently shared photosÂ and video of construction of the new 17-story thrill slide.
On the ride, four-person rafts will plummet down from the tower and speed across a five-story hill.
Schlitterbahn is a family-owned and operated company based in New Braunfels, Texas. Schlitterbahn began its first park, Schlitterbahn Waterpark Resort, in 1979. Since then, Schlitterbahn has developed three waterparks located in Texas and one in Kansas City, Kan.
