Keep going for the video.

This is a point of view trip down the 17-story Verrückt slide at Kansas City's Schlitterbahn water park. It basically looks exactly how you'd expect -- like you're about to die. Also, I didn't know you rode the slide on a raft. I thought you rode it bare-assed. Show More Summary
