The world's tallest waterslide--Verruckt, which is German for "insane"--will open in Kansas City in May.

The actual height of the slide is still a secret, but officials at the Schlitterbahn Water Park say it's over 17 stories, and riders must climb 264 steps to reach the top of the slide, before they'll be sent down in 4-person rafts.

Guinness records officials will be on hand on opening day to measure the height of the slide before putting it in the record books.
