After delaying the opening of Verrückt, the world’s tallest water slide, Schlitterbahn released a Garmin Virb action camera video of the slide's first test riders, who didn’t seem too fazed by the 17-story drop. And no, the lucky three didn’t go airborne.


An opening date for the ride has not been released.
