THE world's tallest and fastest waterslide is being built right now. Will you take the ride of your life? You might think twice after taking a look at these terrifying pics.

IT WILL allegedly be the highest and fastest waterslide ... in the world. Will you take the ride of your life?

Appropriately called 'The Verrückt' (which means insane in German) Meg-A-Blaster, the slide (or supported fall) is due to open May 23 next year in the Schlitterbahn Kansas City Waterpark in America.

The Schlitterbahn Kansas City Waterpark states: "Are you Insane? The new Meg-a-Blaster speed-slide combines the best elements of Schlitterbahn's patented Master Blaster™ technology with the insane drops of a speed slide. This new category of attraction will shatter all existing records and tower over the current record holder."

New photos on the company's blog who the project's progress, and it's already evident that this won't be a ride for the faint hearted.

Schlitterbahn co-owner and designer of the slide, Jeff Henry, won't reveal the statistics we all want to know just yet - that is exactly how high and how fast will the slide will be - but he did say, "Our greatest challenge will be to find thrill seekers brave enough to ride."
