World Tallest Water Slide is Taller than Niagara Falls

World Tallest Water Slide is Taller than Niagara FallsNo risks: A spokeswoman for the waterpark said they'd rather face embarrassment than risk injuriesWhen the world's tallest water slide finally opens in July it will be, as this first person-angle video shows, be absolutely terrifying. 
The Verruckt, meaning insane, will see its riders drop 17 storeys or 168-foot-tall - further down than if they were jumping off Niagara Falls. 
The opening date at Schlitterbahn Kansas City Waterpark was delayed for a third time by problems with the conveyor system that transports the rafts punters lay on to the top of the slide - it was originally due to open in May - but the park is confident it will be open for business in July.
While the launch for local and national was cancelled, co-owner of the park Jeff Henry compared the experience of riding the attraction 'jumping off the Empire State Building'. He's also said it was 'the scariest thing [he'd] done'.World Tallest Water Slide is Taller than Niagara FallsVertigo inducing: The Verruckt has been certified by Guinness as the world's tallest water slideWorld Tallest Water Slide is Taller than Niagara Falls'Game changer': The 17-storey drop will beat the current record of 134.5ft held by a Brazilian slide
