The massive water slide, standing 168 feet and 7 inches tall, hasn't yet opened to the public as planned.  It is expected to open soon, but until then this special will show all the challenges that went into designing and building such a massive attraction.  Sounds like an interesting show for fans of water park and rides in general!
