Extreme stomach-flipping water action is about to hit the Kansas City area in the summer of 2013.
Schlitterbahn Kansas City Waterpark has announced plans to build a waterslide so tall and so fast that they are withholding specific details.
But rest assured, when it opens Kansas City tourists will be able to experience the world’s tallest, fastest, and most extreme waterslide ever built, according to information released by the Unified Government of Wyandotte County/Kansas City, Kansas.
A company official released this statement:
“To ensure the record-holding statistics of this new extreme attraction, we are not going to release final height and scope of the project until we are ready to welcome our first guests,” explained Jeff Henry, Schlitterbahn co-owner and award-winning designer of world-class attractions. “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.”
The Meg-a-Blaster is a new four-person raft speed-slide that is built for height and speed. This attraction is expected to replace the current record holder, Insano at Beach Park located in Fortaleza, Brazil. The Insano stands at 134.5 feet and reaches speeds of 65.2 mph.
Schlitterbahn Kansas City Waterpark season opens Saturday, May 25, 2013. More information is available by calling (913) 312-3110 or by visiting their website.
