A View From the Top: Verruckt at Schlitterbahn Kansas City

It seems that these helicam movies are all the rage right now - not that I'm complaining!  Schlitterbahn Kansas City just released the one embedded above, which shows off the dizzying heights of Verruckt.  Set to open this coming Summer, it will be the tallest raft water slide in the world.

I think this still from the movie is really telling at just how tall Verruckt is.  Granted the park hasn't released a firm number on that front, but just check out the view from the same level as the launch tower!  Not only is the thought of sliding down a steep drop from that height intimidating, but just imagine climbing up those tiny stairs!

Schlitterbahn Kansas City is definitely going to be on the map next year when this one opens!
