Verrückt, the world’s tallest and fastest water slide, is taking shape at Schlitterbahn (poll)

How tall? About 17 stories, but company officials are keeping the ride’s exact height under wraps until an official measuring event this spring. They promise it will exceed the height of the current world-record-holding slide in Brazil. It is scheduled to make its splash when the Kansas City, Kan., water park opens its season May 23.
