^Yeah, agreed. I can't imagine them even attempting to open something as insane as the one in Italy.

I wish they could. I mean, why not? The slides are designed professionally and are not unsafe. Well, maybe a little, but still probably safer than driving in a car.

 

For this, we KNOW the stats, but nobody seems to have found this-

It speaks of a zipline, but what we want to see is that 184 foot tall, 600 foot long speed slide mentioned. Along with detailed diagrams. Hopefully they got permission to construct to 184 feet!

^That isn't possible, the highest speed an object could reach on a 180' drop (assuming no initial speed and no drag/friction) is about 73 mph.

In a vertical direction, correct.

 

However you also have to factor in the initial horizontal speed from any possible pre drop or station conveyer, etc.

Well your probably right. But those are just rumors that I believe are very close to the actual stats.

How long does it take to build a new slide? At Schlitterbahn KC, at least 2 seasons! Sorry, thats just been their M.O. from day 1.

 

Of course it doesn't help that the world has been so lousy this year. They were saying the weather put them way behind on construction.

Well we have had nearly a whole month of constant downpour. The storms had made the Arkansas river 23 feet higher than it should be. Also, the storms were VERY electrical.
