The World's Tallest Waterslide Looks Terrifying

There's a waterslide currently under construction that looks to blow away the title of world's tallest currently held by Brazil's 134.5-foot tall "Insano," and it's being built in the United States.
Dubbed the Verruckt Meg-A-Blaster (verruckt is German for insane), the slide is being erected at the Schlitterbahn Kansas City Waterpark.
The final height won't be formally announced until the construction is completed, but judging by the photo, it's substantially taller than 134.5 feet.
Think the slide couldn't get anymore extreme? It does. The Meg-A-Blaster is a four-person raft slide that allows you and three of your buddies to shriek in tandem as you reach speeds of over 65 mph while flying down the slide.
The project was announced last year and is expected to be completed in time for Opening Day 2014.
"This new MEG-A-BLASTER speed-slide is going to wow our guests and is going to be a game changer for our industry," Schlitterbahn co-owner Jeff Henry said in a statement. "Our greatest challenge will be to find thrill seekers brave enough to ride."
