    Nov 23, 2016 | KXXV-TV Waco

A spokeswoman for Schlitterbahn Waterparks and Resorts said Wednesday that the company's announcement regarding the plan to demolish the 168-foot-tall Verruckt slide was motivated by uncertainty among patrons to its Kansas City, Kansas, water park and had nothing to do with any potential legal settlements.
