Kansas City, Kan., officials rarely discussed the safety of the Verrückt water slide before it opened, The Star has learned.
The Unified Government this week was asked whether there were any dicussions about safety of the slide beyond documents obtained by The Star through the Kansas Open Records Act — mostly emails dating back to 2013.
“There was no discussion among staff about the risk or safety of the ride itself,” Unified Government spokesman Mike Taylor told The Star in an email Wednesday. He said said staffers inspected the ride and found it met building codes.
