Summertime means serious water slide action, so you may or may not have heard rumors of the world's tallest water slide currently existing in Kansas City. Sure, it sounds like fun and games, but 'Verrückt' might just be the thing nightmares are made of.

Located at the Schlitterbahn waterpark, the water slide is measured to be a whopping 168 feet and 7 inches, taller than the Statue of Liberty, Niagara Falls and 23 Shaquille O'Neals stacked on top of each other.

But seriously, experts and technicians have been test-driving this thing and even caught it all on tape before it gets launched to the public. You can feel that drop even through the screen. You’re in for some very, very scary stuff.
