The National Science and Technology Museum in Kaohsiung has installed “three dimensional spiraling slide 2.0” which they claim is Asia’s tallest slide. The slide is 27 meters high, 63 meters long, and takes sliders on a 16 second ride reaching a speed of 80 kilometers per hour.
Version 2.0 replaces an 18 meter high, 46 meter long slide installed in 2015.
The slide takes riders from the 6th floor down to basement level. It was built in Germany by Wiegand, a manufacturer of slides, rides, and toboggan runs.
For information on location, opening times, etc., see the National Science and Technology Museum website.
