Worlds Tallest Waterslide (would you slide down it?)


LINK


quote:

Either that or there's going to be a lot of squished people needing to be scraped off the tiles at the deep end. Currently under construction at the Schlitterbahn park in Kansas City, the Meg-a-Blaster slide will open in Spring 2014.

The current tallest waterslide in the world is Brazil's Insano, standing 134.5 feet high, with riders hitting speeds of 62.5 mph. The Meg-a-Blaster should go a little faster and, with a second hill at the bottom and my lack of a physics degree leaving me flummoxed, I can't see how people won't go flying off the end of the flume and into the sunset.

I remembered the slide st blue bayou being awesome.

Went back as an adult and it sucked. I'd love something that was awesome as an adult.

Not yes, but hell yes. I'm an adrenaline junkie and if this thing doesn't put lead in your pencil, I don't know what does.

Never ride Waterslides in Brazil. They just do not have the regulations.

Not to mention your bathing suit disappearing up your ass

In my unprofessional opinion, it seems easy for your body to want to separate from that slide.... I'd do it tho

I brought my kids one day to ride the train and my wife dared me to ride the new slide. I didn't hesitate. I have to say it was pretty fun. You stand on a platform and the bottom drops out from underneath you almost straight down.

Definitely. And watching women at the bottom is my kind of spectator sport: wedgies and blown-off tops galore!
