Verrückt, the world's tallest water slide, reaches higher than many of the most notable landmarks on Earth.
Conceptualized in November 2012 by Jeff Henry, construction commenced in mid-2013. Shown here is a view down the hill from what would become the base of Verrückt.
Steel columns made from former railroad tanks were cut and refitted to form the water slide's tower.
A look at the fiberglass arch before its placed atop what eventually would be named the world's tallest water slide on April 25.
While the former tallest water slide in the world, Kilimanjaro in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, relies on a hill for the bulk of its height, Verrückt's height comes from concrete and steel.
