It’s A Wild Five Story Slide – Inside A Shopping Mall! Here’s The Incredible Video! “What The Friday!?!”

Check Out This Wild Five Story Slide – Inside A Shopping Mall!

Why do I love to travel? It’s because it’s filled with wonder – both natural and manufactured…and it takes a real creative mind to come up with this:

“What The Friday!?!??!”

Yes, it’s Friday – so it’s time to open your mind and get ready for a wild wild ride!

In 2016, The “Happy New World Happy Slide” opened in the Printemps Mall in Pudong, Shanghai. It’s five stories high, and was built inside the mall to bring in crowds!

Welcome To Shanghai!

Almost 25-million people live in Shanghai, and they need to be entertained!

Well, this will do it – shop for a bit, and when you get to the top of the mall, just slide back down to the bottom!

The dragon-shaped slide is the mall’s centerpiece and acts as a more “interactive escalator!”

So, how fast is this? Well, it takes about 16 seconds to go from the top of the slide to the bottom. Oh, and don’t worry about slide burns – you sit on a burlap bag!

Ready For A Ride?

Of course you are, so here’s what you want to see – a trip down!

Here’s a video that was shared when the slide first opened:

I would do this in a heartbeat – in fact, I am building a long long list of amazing travel adventures to do in China!

Like This Tsunami Water Park!

Yes, it’s a water park with a wave pool so strong that it literally swamps the swimmers!

I also want to see this glass bridge – you know, the one that cracked!

Well, I’d still walk across it, and I you click here you can see how and why it cracked!

  4. Wow!! Amazing. What if you have a lot of shopping? Perhaps they would send it down on an elevator. I think of those kinds of things.

  7. That looks crazy! I remember seeing a roller-coaster inside a mall in Malaysia and that was equally nuts 🙂
