At that point it stops being a "slide" and more of a "drop"
 
2014-01-10 09:12:54 AM  
Tho I'm getting too old for this sort of thing all I can say is want, want, want. Hurry up and take my money.

/Bah, who am I kidding. If the drop doesn't kill me my wife will.

Needs more water.

NOPE

Is it wrong that when I saw the black stripes on the 'bump' I thought "yea, traction tape will be good there to slow you down"

Needs more narration. How am I supposed to know what world I am in if someone does not tell me "I'n a world where..."?

I don't think that was tape, but probably more like either drains for water coming down the slide, or openings for pusher jets to get the car full of riders over the hill.

In either event, I WANT WANT WANT!!

I would poop my pants before I even got in the boat.

No, it won't kill you because


Now, they said it is in Kansas city, which is a potential problem.

You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy than in KC, KS.

If it is in KC, MO, then

Boy that is going to be one severe enema.
 
2014-01-10 01:23:18 PM  
It better be one damn good ride since it will take all freaking day to climb those stairs.

I have done the little Kamikaze slide in Magic Mountain, Moncton NB and that is enough for me. I do not care for heights.

The name translates to "water up butt" in German.

I was thinking the same thing. I've been there as well and I thought it was scary. I'm becoming much more of a wimp as I get older. No way could I do this one.

You know, I suddenly had this image of people racing down that water slide and filling up like water balloons.

Direct Youtube Link, so you don't have to give page clicks to DJ Farkle Barkle and his NutPunch Zany Morning Zoo Crew and their crappy blog that adds nothing to the video.

I don't mind indirect links, if they actually add something that I can't already get from the original YouTube page, but most of the time (particularly in this case), this is just pointless clickfodder that is actually WORSE for having it embedded.

Still has nothing on Traction Park:

img.gawkerassets.com

I vividly remember the sensation of my feet going up as I realized "Here comes the loop!" I remember being ecstatic when I had cleared the pinnacle of the loop, however the worst was yet to come. Apparently my sub 100 lbs. body was not heavy enough for the ride and rather the sticking to the slide on the back end of the loop, I actually fell to the bottom of the loop. I smacked the back of my head on the slide and was nearly knocked unconscious. It was then I saw light as I sputtered out of the exit of the tube [...] I was able to orient myself enough to get to my feet and smile with pride as the stunned crowd cheered for the little kid who just went down the most dangerous water slide of all time. It was closed again within minutes and although I went to the park a dozen times after that day I never saw that slide opened again.

Schlitterbahn is technically in KCK. But it's at The Legends shopping center, which feels like it's out in the middle of nowhere rather than in KCK.

The Legends is where Sporting Park (MLS), Kansas Speedway, Hollywood Casino and a large open-air mall is, too. Not your typical crack/meth-infested idea of what the rest of KCK is like, fortunately.

Ah crap:

The Action Park video link I posted above the pic of the loop waterslide is a bait-and-switch.  The content runs for a while then switches into "ad mode".  The content stops and an ad is substituted without warning.  You can't skip it or fast-forward because the video player controls are removed.

They seize control of the video player without disclosing this to you.

I did not know they had this feature installed, and I should have.  it's my fault for posting without fully checking the content.  I would never have posted it had I known.  It won't happen again.

Mods, modmins, admins, Drew, anyone reading this, please remove the post.

Eff my life.  Lesson learned.

Indeed. I wouldn't even make it up the stairs.
 
2014-01-10 06:51:22 PM  
At first I thought the adjacent piping was a transport down system to those faced with doing the walk of shame, but then I realized there needs to be a method of piping the water up.

The walk of shame must always be preserved.

Looks like it would be awfully easy to leave the ride in mid-drop.

Man, I love Fark. First you get all the people saying what pansies kids are these days and how "I used to ride my big wheel without a helmet in the 70s!" and as soon as something like this comes up it's suddenly full of "nope"

I thought maybe the center column was an elevator, but nope. you really gotta climb all those stairs (isn't it like 13 stories tall?).  What's to prevent someone from accidentally falling over the side?  This thing looks like a deathtrap, this is worst than that idea for the escalator that goes to nowhere

All it takes is one gust of wind to get under ya on the way down, and suddenly there's more air and no slide under ya.  Five bucks says at least one raft goes over the side in the first year.  Nope.

Spock it.

This is, hands down, the funniest thing I have read on fark in at least six months. Bravo.
