Take a terrifying, first-person plunge down the world’s tallest water slide Published: July 4, 2014

Meet the Verruckt, a monstrous water slide soon to open at Kansas City’s Schlitterbahn Park, says Yahoo.

Standing an absurd 168 feet high -- a Guinness World Record for a water slide -- the Verruckt straps riders into a four-person raft and sends them screaming down the near vertical chute at speeds reaching 70 mph.

But it doesn’t end with that first drop, because milliseconds after reaching the soaking nadir of this hellride, riders are sent back up a second rise.

Sound scary? Just wait until you watch it in action.
