Court Grants Permission To Destroy World’s Tallest Waterslide

A Wyandotte County, Kan., court judge has granted permission for the Verruckt waterslide to be torn down. Park officials said it would be demolished shortly after Labor Day.

Nearly two years after the gruesome death of a 10-year-old boy on the Verruckt, a judge has ruled it is time to tear down the 17-story structure.
