Love the feeling of a good adrenaline rush? You might want to head to Kansas City in 2014 – home of the new “Verrückt” water slide, said to be the tallest and fastest water slide in the world.

It’s 264 stairs to the top and you’ll travel in a 4-man raft at over 65 mph en route to the bottom – but not before hitting “the hump” for your final descent.

“Verrückt” is German for “insane”. It’s a the manliest of all man-made water slides.

The Verrückt water slide

Verruckt will open in late-May at the Schlitterbahn Water Park in Kansas City.

The Verruckt will be more than 17 stories high – that’s higher than Niagra Falls. What do you think? Would you consider going for a ride on the Verrückt?
