America's tallest waterslide is coming to the Wisconsin Dells

Come next year, "the Waterpark Capital of the World" will be home to a giant, colorful waterslide -- one that won't be for suited for those with a fear of heights.

The Rise of Icarus, which will be the country's tallest waterslide at 145 feet tall, is planned for the Mount Olympus Water and Theme Park at the Wisconsin Dells, the park's owners announced in a news release on Wednesday. The outdoor waterslide is part of a $8 million park expansion, which includes the addition of a new children's play area with 10 new slides and additional water play features.

Construction of the new waterslide is set to begin after Labor Day. It is expected to open during the summer of 2024.
