(Kansas City, MO) A 17-story tall water slide is being built at a Kansas City water park.

Schlitterbahn’s Verrückt (which means “insane” in German) Meg-A-Blaster will make its debut next May when the park opens.

Four-person rafts will plummet down from the tower and speed across a five-story hill.

Jeff Henry, Schlitterbahn co-owner and designer of the slide, romised the ride will be higher than the current record holder located in Brazil, which is 134 feet tall and reaches speeds of 65 mph.
