The Downtown Slide
If you've been hanging around Downtown Dubai recently, you may have noticed a big lump of metal being mounted bit-by-bit just down the steps from Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard to Burj Park. You may have also noticed, it looks a bit like a slide. Well, you were right; The Downtown Slide, a 19 metre long slide has been erected and at it's highest point reaches seven metres.
Ok, so you might think that sliding down a metal slide in 45˚ c heat isn't such a good idea but since the slide has state-of-the-art-insulation it's always going to be cool and won't heat up, no matter how hot it gets.
