“This new MEG-A-BLASTER speed-slide is going to wow our guests and is going to be a game changer for our industry. Our greatest challenge will be to find thrill seekers brave enough to ride,” said Jeff Henry, Schlitterbahn’s co-owner said in a press release. It’s a Guinness World Record for a water slide, 168 feet high. Verruckt straps riders into a four-person raft and sends them screaming down the near vertical chute at speeds reaching 70 mph. After they’ll tumble another 50 feet before arriving. The park tested the ride with sandbags in place of humans The opening of the water slide was delayed for a third time due to technical issues. Schlitterbahn spokeswoman Winter Prosapio said earlier that park officials wouldn’t hesitate to delay operation again for however long it takes to make sure the slide is safe. Schlitterbahn Waterparks are summer seasonal parks.
