So… this is NOT an elevator, right? Maybe a “take-down-ator” ? :))

I would like to know where this is so I can see it in real life. My kids would love this.

Modified mummy (19:55:20) :

wow, I would adore to have a go on that!

But I must admit, my fat arse would most likely get stuck in it!

This is AWESOME. I wish my office had it. Of course, we are only one story. But still, I think that would be a great way to get from one meeting to another. Short lunch break? Take the slide! When I own my own company I will have to get a slide installed.

rosie (09:56:52) :

i went on these slides, the one form the top floor (5) was the best, it was really fast coz it was so steep and the ridges were the sections of the tube met made you go bump bump bump all the way down!

I can feel the static electricity now.
My poor computer…

jason (20:06:24) :

The high one looks like a big bowl of fun. But beware the static electricity, if ya touch metal afterwards it might just pop your eyes out.!

Lok (09:23:01) :

Oh, wow. I can’t believe I missed this. The last time I visited the Tate modern was for the huge crack in the floor- not as fun as this!

23 02 2009
Jason (17:28:35) :

It’s been taken down. I went to the Tate Modern Museum back in September and it is not there anymore. Too bad though, that looks amazing.

Futurama-esque

Nigel (21:25:04) :

I wonder if Her Majesty had a go…

24 02 2009
Fry (22:02:23) :

Jetsons? How about Futurama?

Fun for kids? How about adults, too?

But, is it art?

25 02 2009
Lauren (22:44:52) :

I went on these! They were fun but kinda dangerous, one guy nearly broke his arm on one…

27 02 2009
Mike (20:15:31) :

It’s not that awesome. Water slides a better. You have to get there hours before you want to go on it because of a line/reservation deal.

there is a building being built in sheffield, uk that is going to incorporate one of these slides into the design. it’s built by the same people who did the ones at the tate, sounds cool. think its gonna be called digital campus, gonna be office space for entrepenurial buisness if i remember rightly

I’d love to go down it a few times. Adults can have fun too!

Sheeedashri (04:13:37) :

My kids would love this. But we have missed out during our trip to London in December 2008.

rede (01:04:08) :

How fast could you evacuate a building? How many people could go down the slide in ten minutes if there was an emergency? How many lives could be saved if there was a slide system installed in a high rise that had a major fire? How many slides would it take to handle the occupants of a building like the World Trade Center?

freemind (21:30:07) :

it was cool, but the time i was there the line was a bit long. it’s good to see pictures about it tough

sunlover25 (18:31:42) :

Yeah cool, as long as the electricity doesn’t go out half way down, ha!
Crash!

Blugyblug (09:49:50) :

And i bet youll have to pay $10 to go down and its probably part of a big advertising scheme about a “easy, fun computer”

Most of the people in the mall near my house wouldn’t even fit in there. You can be sure that this wouldn’t be as popular in the U.S.

This is in the “Tate Modern” Turbine Hall on London’s Thames south Bank-They host some amazing interactive exhibits every few months-I missed out on this one-One I did get to visit a while back had an indoor “Sun”,and people were hanging out like they were at a Beach-the ceiling of this amazingly tall building was mirrored,so it looked twice as tall,and groups were lining out on the floor making words and patterns in the reflections!

Jake (20:56:17) :

last time I went to tate modern there was a HUGE steel box with a ramp leading into it. You walk inside and its so trippy because you can’t see anything. I love that gallery :)

Chris Ronk (16:58:29) :

I have always fantasized about having one of those in my house. Or at least a pole to slide down.
