Kentucky Claims World's Tallest Water Slide
Kentucky can now claim the world's tallest water slide. The Schlitterbahn Development Group is happy to introduce the Verruckt, a 168 feet tall water slide that riders can launch down on rafts reaching speeds topping 60 mph. The giant water slide is not yet open, as tests resulted in the entire raft being launched into the air. The slide's opening has been pushed back from its original launch date of the beginning of summer.
