This slide is part of an art installation at the Tate Modern Art Gallery in London. Amazing, no?

Test Site is an art installation, that was displayed in the turbine hall of the Tate Modern in London, UK, between October 2006 and April 9, 2007. Test Site was designed by Carsten Höller, and is the most recent of the series of works in the turbine hall sponsored by Unilever known as “The Unilever Series”.

The exhibit consists of a series of metal slides. There are a total of five slides, two starting on the second floor, and one on each floor after that up to the 5th floor. The slides are composed of metal and fiberglass, and covered all the way around.

Visitors could slide down the slides of the installation for free, but timed entry tickets were required for all but the second floor slides.
