KANSAS CITY, Kan. — Schlitterbahn Kansas City Waterpark has announced the world’s tallest, fastest and most extreme waterslide ever built — opening in summer 2013.
The new four-person raft Meg-a-Blaster speed-slide combines the best elements of Schlitterbahn’s patented Master Blaster technology with the insane drops of a speed slide. This new category of attraction will shatter all existing records and tower over the current record holder, Insano at Beach Park located in Fortaleza, Brazil, which stands a towering 134.5 feet and reaches speeds of 65.2 mph.
“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.”
Additional information will be released closer to the grand unveiling.
