At 17 stories high, this water slide is taller than the Statue of Liberty. It's located in Kansas City, and looks like a lot of fun. This video features some of the engineers of the slide taking the first runs, and that first drop looks pretty intense. I'm in!

It looks safer than the first trial runs they did with sandbags. Hopefully with the netting up, you won't go flying off the slide like in the video below from the Travel Channel program featuring the building of the slide.
