Before park visitors go down the slide, they'll have to go up: 264 stairs to a platform higher than the Statue of Liberty and Niagara Falls.
Before even being allowed to climb the stairs, visitors must step onto a scale to ensure the combined weight of the two or three people who will be on a single raft does not exceed 550 pounds. After passing that, a park worker reads a two-page list that is part warning and part disclaimer.
One of the warnings listed is the possibility of death.

Can that be placed at the border and slide each child back into Mexico?
Move it to D.C., and force you too look at pictures of the nations decline all the way down an actual slippery slope.
I would then replace the water at the bottom with a brick wall...for that extra bit of realism.
Is that a 180 degree slope?
They made it safer, put nets up, you'd be crazy not to go on it.
Soylent Green Soup!
I grew up before water parks existed - we called them lakes. That contraption is way too high for this old geezer but when I was 16, no problem.
That’s what my wife’s German riding instructor used to say: Das Pferd ist varruect! He was.
The possibility of death is what makes it fuuuuuuuunnn.
"Sponsored by Garmin!"
I live close by....in less than an hour I could be on that ride.
I fairly confident I never will, though.
Sadly, I don’t think it will stay open for very long...somebody will get severely hurt or killed.
I’ll see you Nope and raise ya a Hell NO!!!
What is “varruect”?
Last sign before ride:
YOU ARE ELIGIBLE FOR THE DARWIN AWARDS!
watching those sandbags fly off in various directions sure is calming.
Did you see my last response? There is not a chance in this world that I will ever get on that thing. For starters, the climb up there alone would kill me. The wait during that climb would kill me if the climb hadn’t already. I’m not a big fan of long lines. We already have Worlds of Fun and Oceans of Fun that we’ll never go to because I just can’t handle stuff like that. I’m a puker. It’s not happening. Never never never.
verruckt is german for “crazy”
I see missing arms and legs in their future...
