Airport Installs 40-Foot-Tall Twister Slide

To distract travelers from delayed and canceled flights, Singapore’s Changi Airport installed a 40-foot-tall super twister slide that they can zip down at 19 feet per second.

If you spend $22 in the airport, you get two free ride tokens on the Slide@T3. I guess if you get people laughing and having fun while plummeting towards the earth, they’ll be less anxious while flying. Too bad we’ll never see anything like this in the United States, there would be lawsuits disgorging themselves from the bottom of the slide on opening day.
