It's only 40 seconds to go down the slide so don't calculate the $ per hour rate. Best view in the city from the top. Slide is unique and it's a check the box thing.

We had a family trip here with the youngest being 13 and the oldest being 68 and we all enjoyed it. It feels a lot longer than 42 seconds and there are lots of twists and turns on the way!

Hi, you check in at reception, we queued about 20 minutes here but it was fully booked the day we went which might explain why it was slow. The lift up is quick and you can probably expect at least a 10-15 minute wait as you... More

It’s a reasonably smooth ride with padded mat but at a steep angle with sudden twists and turns so if you have a definite back problem I would suggest avoid
