So, on today's Morning Talker, with our friends from ABC 6, we discussed this crazy new water slide called Verrückt, which is finally ready to open.

The slide which fittingly gets its name from the German word for "insane" stands 168 feet tall and is 17 stories high. Holy cow, that's huge! I don't know if I would be into riding it but I'm sure it's quite the experience.

After a few push backs in the opening of the ride, which was originally set for May 2014, the towering slide is set to go, at Schlitterbahn water park in Kansas City.  Click video below to see the incredible height of this slide.
