World’s most insane waterslide opens

Believed to be the world’s tallest and fastest water slide, Kansas’ the Verruckt is now open!

The Verruckt (German for insane) has a longer drop than the Niagara Falls at 51 metres high. To get aboard you must climb 17 storeys – a total of 260 steps.

The opening date has previously been postponed due to safety concerns after the crash-test dummies failed to survive the ride. The owners now believe the issues have been fixed.

Do you think its safe? Would you take the plunge?
