Not Your Grandparents’Slide June 23, 2016

Posted by geoff in News.

In my youth I would have flown to the UK just for this:


But now? I think I’d just watch from some nearby pub (assuming there are any left).

This, BTW, is London’s brand new attraction, called The Slide. You go up 377 feet and enjoy the view, and then slide down through 12 complete turns on a 40-second ride to doom. And the transparent sections along the way mean you can enjoy a last look at the world before impact.

Does kind of look fun, though.

Sure, it looks fun unless you’re the one who has to clean the brown stripe out of it after my turn.

I guess New York has an awesome one as well.

lauraw’s comment made me think some entrepreneur will set up a kiosk selling adult diapers nearby the entrance.to the slide.

Looks like that one is only from the 70th to the 69th floor, Geoff. L-A-M-E-OHHH

OTOH, much easier to clean.
