If you are looking for a thrill to stay cool in this summer heat, look no further than Kansas City, Kansas.
The 17-story Verruckt opens to the public for the first time Thursday.
The water slide at at the Schlitterbahn Kansas City Waterpark is just over 168-feet tall, higher than Niagara Falls!
Riders will have to climb 264 steps to get to the top.
The ride can even reach speeds of up to 65 miles-per-hour.
Verruckt means "insane" in German.
Check out ABC'S Matt Gutman's ride down the slide here.
