Kansas City‘s Schlitterbahn Waterpark has announced that it is currently in the process of building the world’s fastest and tallest waterslide to be opened next summer.

According to Amusement Today, the slide is called the “Verruckt Meg-A-Blaster” and will tower over the current tallest and fastest waterslide, Brazil’s 134.5-foot “Insano.”

The final height will be revealed once construction of the Verruckt (German for “insane”) is finished.

The slide is a four-person raft ride that will plunge you and three buddies down a skyscraper of a ramp at over 65 miles per hour, just beating Insano’s 65.2-mph record.

“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.”

We can’t imagine what that drop does to your stomach. A single-person waterslide is a rush and a half, but four people plummeting down 100+ feet while sitting up?

Anyone who’s ever been on Mountain Creek‘s “High Anxiety” can instantly recall that sweet tiny little drop in the dark that kicks off the ride.

Imagine that times 100.
