You might have heard the rumors that Kansas City is about the receive the world's largest waterslide, but if you haven't seen the new drone-shot video.. you don't know how terrifying it's actually going to be.

The new ride, named, Verrückt, stands at 17 stories high (bigger than Niagara Falls!) and will send brave riders down the slide at 65 miles per hour (faster than my first car!). Did I mention that verrückt means "insane" in German? Because that's pretty much what this ride is going to be.

New video footage of world's tallest waterslide is absolute insanityS

The world's tallest waterslide officially opens at the Schlitterbahn water park in Kansas City this Memorial Day. Good thing no one can see you sweat in the water.

Can't wait for Memorial Day? Try one of these heated, indoor waterparks near you... they're open year round!
