8 – The Slide inside the Airport (Singapore)
It can be hard to travel with children, which is why Singapore’s Changi Airport was designed to be a family entertainment venue.
Among its amenities is a 40-foot tall slide. It’s the tallest slide in Singapore and the tallest slide in any airport anywhere!
For every $22 spent in the airport, adrenaline junkies (or really brave little kids) get tokens for two rides on the slide. Visitors who don’t want to travel at the speed of 19 feet a second, can take a
ride down the shorter, one-and-a-half-story tall slide located at Terminal 3 Basement 2, which is free.
7 – Slide Staircase (England)
This creative slide next to the staircase was designed by London architect Alex Michaelis at the request of his children.
Not only it adds originality but a lot of fun to their new eco-friendly dream home. In the picture, one of the children throwing caution to the wind and diving head first down the slide. Accordin
g to Michaelis even grown-ups can’t resist skipping the stairs.
“We’ve been known after a big dinner party to use the slide”, he said. Creativity, originality and fun, what a perfect combination!
6 – Giant Tube Slide in Technical University Of Munich (Germany)
The students of Technical University of Munich don’t have to take stairs or lift down to the ground floor of the building. Instead, they can ride a giant slide.
How cool would it be to travel lesson to lesson by slide!? I Wish that had this when I was at University.
5 – Elephant Slide (Japan)
This slide made like an elephant’s trunk it is designed to make a difference in the elevation of this park.
A slide of such form is something which is not seen in other parks, and it becomes playground equipment symbolizing Akagi Children’s Park.
What a cool idea!
4 – Slide in Tate Gallery (London)

The architectural firm of EM2N incorporated a long yellow slide that allows visitors and owners alike to enter the Haus Gross with a playful and exhilarating entry.

For the children living here nothing could be more fun than having your own slide from your bedroom to the kitchen in the family home.
The ‘Play House,’ designed by Indonesian architects Aboday has an open layout with whitewashed walls and concrete ceilings.
The two-story house has an exposed concrete exterior as well.
