PHOTOS | World's tallest water slide -- Verrückt

With a first drop nearly 169 feet high at a 60-degree angle, Verrückt will take thrillseekers at Schlitterbahn in Kansas City, Kansas, to speeds approaching 65 mph. The 607-foot-long journey, which will last about 18 seconds, puts riders inside a four-person raft. It is the world’s tallest water slide. To ride, your bare feet first have to carry you up 264 stairs to reach the top.
