Kansas City Newsie Verrückt Death Trap Water Slide Sneak Peek Promo Access Delayed

Kansas City newsies must wait for death from a German-themed attraction . . . Schlitterbahn Waterpark has cancelled media preview rides of Verruckt, the world's tallest water slide, due to problems with the attraction.

Anonymous sources inside the park report that test rides with mannequins would occasionally go airborne, fly off the water slide, and crash below.

Needless to say, they don't want that happening on the high publicity opening with local media present.

Boondoggle

The big problem is every time they measure that ass on Lora Moritz it grows two more inches wide and they have to cancel again.

Splinter in the ass is more like it .

The slide is actually less of a Boondoggle than the streetcar.
Guaranteed paid ridership, clear starting/stopping locations, makes no false/unfounded claims of future economic development.
Of course, the slide will claim a life during it's first 6 months of operation. It might take the streetcar slightly longer.

KCK tax payers have paid through the butt for this joke of a water park. Let the city hall clowns take the first ride so we can get our moneys worth.

That guy you saw downtown today, salivating all over his Italian suit, was a lawyer.

10:41 is right.
Commissioner Tarance Maddox should be first down the slide.
If he makes it, it shows the ride can handle large overweight people.
If he doesn't, other issues are solved.
Win, win.

I'm with 7:28, as long as Terence takes his Argentina enabler with him.
