Surprise! A Video Look at the World's Largest Water Coaster at Schlitterbahn Galveston

Schlitterbahn Galveston has just released a computer-generated video in preparation of the opening of Massiv — being billed as "the world's tallest uphill water coaster." 

Opening this summer, it is said to be three football fields long, with four uphill sections and boasts the "first ever triple-drop finale." 

Feel free to start screaming now. 

(The only thing missing from the video are the "refreshing splashes of water" you'll actually encounter by going on the ride.)
