Playground slide makes debut at Kaohsiung museum

(CNA) A giant spiral tube slide which allows visitors to slide from the top to the bottom in 16 seconds, reaching a maximum speed of 82kph, was unveiled on Tuesday at the National Science and Technology Museum in Kaohsiung.

The slide, which stands 27 meters in height and 63 meters in length, is the tallest in Asia and the third tallest in the world, according to the museum.

The slide was a highlight at the permanent adventure playground show at the museum.

A university student Chuang Ya-ping (莊雅萍) said the slide was especially scary because of the speed one reached, while another visitor, Huang Po-wei (黃柏維), said he felt dizzy after going on the slide.

Chen Shiunn-shyung (陳訓祥), director-general of the museum, said the slide was being used not only to attract visitors but also to introduce basic scientific knowledge on such things as free falling, centrifugal force, friction and centripetal force.

However, visitors under 130cm, those who weigh more than 150kg, pregnant women and people with cardiovascular disease are prohibited from going on the slide, Chen said.
