Verrückt, the world’s tallest water slide, will debut Sunday at Schlitterbahn in Kansas City, Kan.

The slide is 168 feet, 7 inches tall and reaches speeds up to 60 to 70 mph. Verrückt, which is German for insane, has been declared the tallest in the world by the Guinness Book of World Records. The slide was originally scheduled to open May 23, but was delayed for adjustments.

The opening debut coincides with a featured spot on the Travel Channel special “Xtreme Waterparks.”
