Verrückt -- World's Tallest Waterslide!

Day of reservations start at park open each day. See below for reservation information. Verrückt is the tallest water slide in the world and dominates the skyline at our Kansas City Schlitterbahn. Adventure seekers will be able to share this experience as they strap into a 3 person raft that will slide down a jaw dropping 168 foot 7 inch structure, only to be blasted back up a second massive hill and then sent down yet another gut wrenching 50 foot drop for the ultimate in water slide thrills! See the "Tips" below for IMPORTANT ride information.

Verrückt, the World’s Tallest Waterslide is now open to guests of Schlitterbahn Waterpark Kansas City.
Due to the popularity of Verrückt, guests who wish to ride will make a day of reservation for a scheduled ride time when the park opens for the day. This will allow guests to enjoy the other rides and rivers and tube rides and kids areas at Schlitterbahn while they await their turn! Daily reservations are first come, first served. NOTE: Currently demand is greater than the amount of available rides. Come early for the best chance to reserve your ride time.

No cameras are allowed on riders during their slide down Verrückt. (Media interested in filming should contact the park for special GARMIN VIRB filming options)

What is the walk-up line?

  • Guests who were unable to make a morning reservation are welcome to wait in the walk-up line.  Guests in the walk-up line will be able to ride.  Walk-up line will be limited and will close as determined by demand.

How do I make reservations?
  • The line will form at park opening at the bottom of the Verrückt tower. ALL reservations for the day will be taken at this time!

  • Your group will be assigned a time, and the complete group must report back to the Verrückt tower 30 minutes prior to ride time for briefing. 

What if I miss my scheduled time?
  • Guests who miss a scheduled ride will forfeit their chance to ride, but are welcome to join the standby line.
