5. Verrückt Schlitterbahn, Kansas City, Kansas, USA

Verrückt Schlitterbahn, Kansas City, Kansas, USA

Verrückt means "crazy" in German and you'd have to be, if you want to voluntarily experience a ride on a 17-story high waterslide that is taller than Niagara Falls.

You share this stomach-turning rafting experience with three other riders.

Find out who can scream the loudest, when your raft hurtles at speeds of more than 65 mph downwards, then up again by 5 stories, then down again and so forth until your brain doesn't know if your body is up or down anymore.2

Yep, it's one of those terrifying theme park rides most sane people wouldn't go on!
