WASHINGTON -- It's 168 feet 7 inches tall and could soon be giving people the ride of their life.
The opening of the Verrückt, the monster slide at Schlitterbahn Waterpark in Kansas City, Kansas keeps getting pushed back.
But engineers have now taken a ride on the water slide that's taller than the Statue of Liberty and Niagara Falls. The
Riders get strapped into a raft for the ride that is expected to get to 65 mph.
It was supposed to open in June, but didn't. The release date, according to Verrückt website, is sometime "in 2014."
