Kansas City, Kansas (KSHB/CNN) — It’s a trip that’s likely to make your heart race.

And Kansas City’s newest water slide is already breaking records.

The Verruckt at Schlitterbahn Water Park stands 168-feet high.

That’s the tallest in the world as verified by Guinness World Record officials.

But it takes just 11-seconds to slide down it because you’re going 60-miles-per-hour!

Perhaps that’s where the slide got its name. Verruckt means “insane” in German.

The Verruckt opens to the public on May 23.
