Let’s Start Thinking of Summer…
Let’s Start Thinking of Summer…

Ok. It’s cold. Really, really cold. So, I’m sure I’m not alone when I say it’s time to start thinking about Summer. And what’s a really fun thing to do in the Summer? Water parks! Yep. Water parks are awesome. When the temps are up, nothing beats taking your friends/family to a water park to cool off.

But… This thing, this monstrosity. I’m not sure I would do this. This is something called Verruckt. This thing is 17 stories tall. Seventeen. It’s the worlds largest water slide and it’s coming to the Schlitterbahn Water Park in Kansas City.

I just… I… Nope. I can’t do it. Say what you want. Question my manhood. Whatever. While I’m no fan of this frigid cold, I’m not doing that. Nope. Verruckt, by the way, is German and it loosely translates to crazy, insane, mad. Yep. I’d have to be to get on that thing. No offense. Feel free to hop on board. I’ll be over here…
