After seeing this new one that is due to open soon, my reaction to that waterslide was 'meh'

The Schlitterbahn in KC KS has the world's tallest water slide now. So at least we have that going for us.

There's not enough NOPE in the world for me to properly express how I feel about that picture

moel: "Action Park"


moel: Oldiron_79: moel: Pah....amateurs

looks pretty cool, but not that scary! Would like a go!

Is it Safe?

Sorry i should probably have qualified that the 'not that scary would give it a go' comment is about the ride in the article...not the deathslide at the now legendarily fatal but i think closed "Action Park"


From the wiki:

"It was given nicknames such as "Traction Park",[2] "Accident Park", and "Class Action Park"[3] by doctors at nearby hospitals due to the number of severely injured parkgoers they treated "

Awesome.

I agree... I think this is much more terrifying.

moel: Sorry i should probably have qualified that the 'not that scary would give it a go' comment is about the ride in the article...not the deathslide at the now legendarily fatal but i think closed  recently reopened "Action Park"   (there have been a couple of threads about the reopening of 'class action Park'.

fusillade762: The worst part is, they have no idea when it will happen.

Sure, except for the part where the attendant counts down to 1. No idea at all.


Actually, the way it works is that you and 2 others are in the pods looking at one another  and the operator is standing out of view.  You are told to give a thumbs-up when you are ready and the operator randomly selects you one at a time to go.  So you really don't know when it will happen.

I've never been on a waterslide, but it can't be as scary as getting pinned on a river rock by the current.
