Located in the heart of Kansas City, 'Verrückt' is described as the world's tallest water slide. While water slides may seem tame when compared to rollercoasters and other thrill rides, this one is anything but that. A recent video shows the ride's engineer taking it for a spin and his expression tells all as he holds on for dear life.

Standing at 168 feet, the world's tallest water slide stands higher than some famous landmarks like Niagara Falls and the Statue of Liberty. Those with a phobia of heights may think twice before visiting Kansas City's Schlitterbahn water park, where the ride has recently been opened.

While it does feature a safety net shell, this harness-free ride is a terrifying choice that thrill seekers will appreciate.
