The Tallest Water Slides in North America

Number 1: Verruckt- About 170 Foot Drop

Schlitterbahn.

There are tall water slides, and then there are insanely tall water slides. At 17 stories tall, Verruckt (which, conveniently, translates from German into "insane") is decidedly insanely tall. It's also quite unique. Using Schlitterbahn's patented uphill water coaster system, the ride sends passenger-filled rafts down about 170 feet and then up a camelback hill for some coaster-like airtime.

Upon its opening, Verruckt not only took top honors as the tallest water slide in North America, it earned its status as the tallest water slide in the world.
