The world’s tallest waterslide is coming to Kansas City, and it’s not for the faint of heart. The Meg-a-Blaster, currently under construction at Schlitterbahn park in Kansas City, will drop you nearly 140 feet with riders hitting speeds of nearly 65 mph.

The world’s current tallest slide, Brazil’s Insano, drops thrill seekers from 134.5 feet.

One of the cool features of the future Meg-a-Blaster is the second hill at the bottom. Now, I don’t have an engineering degree, but wouldn’t a rider at those speeds pulling a “Evil Knievel” into the middle of a Kansas prairie?

Here’s a few of the more amusing comments found on Reddit:

Sideways_X – “Looking at OP’s other pictures, it’s a 4 man ride where you’re in a raft like a log flume. I think that makes it safer.”

SlapchopRock – “All I’m imagining is wind catching the raft and sailing into your doom.”

feor1300 – “I’m thinking by the time you get to the bottom of that, if you weren’t on some kind of raft or log… well, let’s just say that’s accidental enema territory right there.”

chasemuss – “All I can think of is the wedgie afterwards…”
