KANSAS CITY (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - After several setbacks, the world's tallest water slide in Kansas City is finally open.

It's called Verruckt, which means 'insane' in German.

The slide rises 168 feet, which means it's taller than Niagara Falls.

After riders are weighed, a park employee runs through a two page warning list, one of the warnings being death.

If you opt not to go, you have to do the walk of shame down 264 stairs.

The rafts slide down at speeds of 70 miles per hour.
