The park announced that it will permanently close Verrückt and tear it down after getting permission to do so from the court, and after an investigation into Schwab's death is over.
"In our opinion, it is the only proper course of action following this tragedy," the statement reads.
Park officials said that they are cooperating with investigators who are still looking into details of Caleb's death.
"We honestly don't know what's happened," Winter Prosapio, director of communications for Schlitterbahn, told reporters in October, according to The Kansas City Star in August. "That's why a full investigation is necessary … This is not something we've experienced."
Another ride will be build in place of the 168-foot slide at a later date.
