A Five Story Slide Inside a Mall in Shangai

A Five Story Slide Inside a Mall in Shangai
Forget the stairs or the escalator. This shopping mall in Shanghai has a great new way to travel from the top floor to the bottom — a winding slide decorated to look like a dragon. The trip through the dragon's gullet takes about 16 seconds. It's free, although you do have to be at least three years old and 3' 1/2" tall.

Despite some speculation and fear, mall management has assured the public that the slide has been thoroughly tested, and any potential safety hazards will be fixed. (Source 1 | Source 2)

Slide Inside London's Hayward Gallery

Slide Inside London's Hayward Gallery
In 2015, Belgian artist Carsten Höller filled the Hayward Gallery and terraces on London's South Bank with interactive installations —including a pair of spiral slides. Höller has been described as the "authentic Willy Wonka of contemporary art."

This wasn't his first time using the slides. In 2006, the conceptual artist installed them at the former power station's Turbine Hall. They caused several injuries. (Source)

LEGO's Office Slide in Denmark

LEGO's Office Slide in Denmark

Iconic toymaker LEGO proves that work can be fun too with this delightful office for its development department in Denmark. Created by Copenhagen-based interdisciplinary design studio Rosan Bosch, every element in the office is designed with an emphasis on fun, playfulness and creativity.

The stand-out feature of the office is a two-story high which integrates the child-like imaginative essence of the company into the physical working environment, and gives employees a fun way to get from the second floor to the first. (Source)

Slide Inside a Bookstore in Dusseldorf

Slide Inside a Bookstore in Dusseldorf
A bookstore in Dusseldorf has one of the best children's sections you will ever see. Mayersche Droste has the usual range of books, quality toys; and an awesome play area. But what will make your visit worthwhile is the metal, circular slide from the first level to the lower level. That, and the hot chocolate, coffee, and sweet treats on the top floor are a perfect combination. (Source)

A NYC Penthouse With An 80-Foot Slide

A NYC Penthouse With An 80-Foot Slide
The American Tract Society Building is one of the oldest surviving skyscrapers in Manhattan. Tucked away inside is a four-story, 6,500-foot expanse with full panoramic views of the city. It had never been inhabited — until recently.

Architect David Hotson and Dutch-born interior designer Ghislaine Vinas have transformed this space into an adult playpen with some highly imaginative additions— the most amazing of which is the 80-ft metal chute that weaves its way down through the apartment's floors. This slide was made in Germany, constructed on site, and its entrance and exit are shaped like a vast funnel. It's passage is broken by a landing on the bedroom level, allowing riders to stop off, on their way down.

Slide Inside Box's Los Altos Headquarters

Slide Inside Box's Los Altos Headquarters
Box is a popular cloud storage platform that allows you to access or share content from anywhere. The company is headquartered in Los Altos, California in a 100,000 square foot office space which was designed by FENNIE+MEHL Architects.

“We blew out floors and walls and created a space that was positively humming. Rambunctious, fun and youthful — yes, that is a two-story slide connecting the first two floors — the Box space was so successful the company outgrew it within 18 months," said the architect. (Source)

This is the Technische Universitat in Munich, Germany. Those giant tubes are slides that go from the top floor to the ground level patio. Students can choose to ride the four-story high slides down to the ground floor of their building instead of taking the stairs or the elevator.

Volkwagen's Fast Lane Slide in the Berlin Subway
For those looking to move a little quicker, auto giant Volkswagen created a “Fast Lane” slide at the Alexanderplatz subway station in Berlin to advertise for the Polo GTI. Commuters had the choice to either take the staircase or have fun and save time by sliding down the Fast Lane.

SliderRider Fold-up Mat

SliderRider Fold-up Mat
If you liked these slides and desperately want one in your house, there is good news — there's a quirky new contraption that turns stairs into an indoor slide by doing away with the pillow cases and sleeping bags traditionally used by children. The SlideRider, currently in the prototype stage, consists of multiple folding mats that can be laid over angular steps to create a smooth surface. The final mat is cushioned for a soft landing, and there are foldout "safety rails" to ensure children don't bump into banisters.

SlideRider is the brainchild of Trisha Cleveland from Minneapolis, Minnesota. She submitted her idea to Quirky.com — a website which helps bring inventions to life — and is now waiting to see if it will be picked up by developers. If it is, she envisions it will retail between $45 and $95. (Source)
