An indoor slide that takes you to the bottom floor in a shopping mall in Shanghai…
The enclosed five-story-high slide opened to the public for trial run on Monday. It takes at least 16 seconds to finish the 54-meter-long ride.
“It’s quite easy to slide on it. The speed is not as fast as we expected.”
At present the slide is open only to VIP customers of the mall.
As a safety precaution, only one person is allowed on the facility each time, and any rider will have to put on protective gear.
SOUNDBITE: TANG YAN, Mall Manager
“It seems a little bit scary to slide from the fifth floor to the ground. But once you get inside you’ll find the speed is just fine. The whole ride is very safe.”
It’s said to be the highest indoor slide in Shanghai.
The mall’s managers say restrictive measures will be taken once more than 120 people are in the queue.
