Although not yet completed, the pant-staining potential of what will be the world's tallest waterslide is abundantly clear.

The 140 feet Meg-a-Blaster at the Schlitterbahn park in Kansas City is huge.

Those brave enough to try it out will be hurtled in a four-person raft at speeds over 60mph and will then have to negotiate a second hump on the way down.

We just hope the engineers have got this right otherwise it promises to launch you oblivion....

The Meg-a-Blaster will take the crown from Brazil’s Insano which is a still-heady 134.5 feet high (see the video below).
