Der Stuka

The free fall of a lifetime begins with a single step.

Okay, you can’t put it off any longer. You’ve had plenty of time to build up your bravery points; now it’s time to cash in. Standing before you is the ultimate legendary slide experience, the one that calls out to all the true thrill seekers. In fact, these two words are probably the whole reason you came to the park. Der Stuka. Stretching up into the sky a whopping seven stories tall, Der Stuka dares you to step up to the plate.

The slide is named after words that literally mean “attack plane,” and when you complete your assault on the water, you will know why. It’s shockingly tall and steep even to look at. But once you start ascending the long spiral ramp leading up the tower, you realize this is nothing less than a 72-foot free fall. The narrow channel of the slide is just wide enough for your body, and that’s all you’ll have to rely on – no rafts. But you can count on your body barely touching the slide pretty much the entire way down, because more likely, you’ll be touching seven stories of air. The hardest part is taking the first step over the edge, but then gravity will do all the work.
