Kansas City, KS — Schlitterbahn Kansas City waterpark announced they will build the world's tallest, fastest and most extreme waterslide ever for summer 2013. The new four-person raft Meg-a-Blaster will combine the best elements of Schlitterbahn's patented Master Blaster technology with the insane drops typically found only speed slides.
This new waterslide attraction will shatter all existing records, but Schlitterbahn won't reveal the statistics at this time.
"To ensure the record-holding statistics of this new extreme attraction, we are not going to release final height and scope of the project until we are ready to welcome our first guests," explained Jeff Henry, Schlitterbahn co-owner and award-winning designer of world-class attractions.
The current record holder is the Insano waterslide at Beach Park in Fortaleza, Brazil. Insano stands 134.5 feet tall and riders reach a top speed of 65.2 miles-per-hour during the descent.
"This new Meg-a-Blaster speed-slide is going to wow our guests and is going to be a game changer for our industry. Our greatest challenge will be to find thrill seekers brave enough to ride," added Henry.
Schlitterbahn says they will release additional information about this the Mega-a-Blaster closer to the grand opening.
Schlitterbahn Kansas City waterpark opens for the 2013 season on Saturday, May 25. Season passes for next season are already on sale at a discount. For more information, visit schlitterbahn.com.
