"Crazy" is German for "crazy" or "insane", and the slide was built to inspire.
Riders climbed 264 steps to the summit before sitting in a raft that toppled from a peak of about 17 stories and then climbed over a ridge on the way to a sink on the ground. The net, which covered the length of the slide, was supported by metal bars and was supposed to keep the riders from falling off.
The indictment was a society that ignored its own warnings and built a huge waterslide to impress the producers of a Travel Channel show, "Xtreme Waterparks," which featured the slide in one episode.
In this persecution, Schlitterbahn crashed engineers involved in all phases of its design to build a prototype without proper testing and opened the chute Englisch: www.moviesfilmonline.com / en / movies / oliver – twist Concerns over weight limits, authorities said to drivers of all ages. Henry, who was also one of the designers of the waterslide, voiced concerns before the foil opened, that he could be injured or killed, according to investigators.
"It's a seriously dangerous device today because of things we do not know," the indictment quoted him.
Mr. Henry and another water slide designer, John T. Schooley, were mentioned in the indictment of Mr. Miles last week, but Mr. Miles was the only person charged in this document. One of his lawyers, Tricia Bath, said on Sunday that Mr. Miles had denied the allegations of the state.
"Tyler not only rode the slide several times, but, as the state knows, he had also taken his wife on board on the day of the accident," Ms. Bath said in an e-mail. "These are not the actions of someone who thought the ride was dangerous."

Caleb's family received a settlement of nearly $ 20 million last year from Schlitterbahn and other companies involved in the slide, The Kansas City Star reported. Caleb was the son of Scott Schwab, a member of the Kansas House of Representatives.

Some drivers who were injured complained of neck pain and bruises, while others had more severe injuries, including concussions and fractures.
Two days before Caleb's death, another driver, Donald Slaughter, was 42 years old. was in a raft hovering on the second hill in the air, which made his head bump, the indictment said. Almost two years later, Mr. Slaughter is in pain and struggling for daily activities, he told investigators.
