Nothing says "watery grave" like a 168-foot-tall waterslide named "Verruckt".

You may recall the teaser video from over the winter of the world's tallest waterslide that was due to open this year at Schlitterbahn waterpark in Kansas City... the opening has been pushed back several times.

One would assume that's because the park wants this ride to be as safe as possible, especially since rumor has it that the ride launched sandbags into the air over a Memorial Day Weekend test.

Yikes.

Take a look at these brave idiots souls who risked their lives to bring you video of what it's like to knock on Davy Jones' Locker...
