Are you going for it?

I am!!!

I got my ticket this morning & I was the 1st person! (Tickets bought in advance is valid for 1 month). But I haven’t tried it yet as the slide wasn’t open to public until after the opening ceremony. I had to hop off to work so I’m keeping the ticket for tomorrow!

Dress code:
Anything comfortable, as your legs (up to your knees) will be slotted into a “bag” (sort of a gunny sack) so your shoes/slippers won’t come off.
This also prevents your skirts (if you are dumb enough to wear one for this!) jeans, etc, from potential damage. The surface of the slide is smooth enough for safety reasons.

    I don’t think many people can fit into this slide wor. I saw it last week, and it looks quite small!

    You skinny, sure can la! 😉

      1. jeffrey

        the maximum weight allowed for the LeX Slide is 250kg. Most of us earthlings boleh masuk.

    1. DWu

      Actually, the slide was not that small. Most of our Malaysian sizes can fit in. I tried it yesterday, quite fun, but a bit pricey. Should have a try, at least once.

      1. rebeccasaw

        AGREE. A must try at least once B-)

      2. jeffrey

        the diameter of the LeX Slide is 800mm = almost 3ft.

    2. Jackson

      Hi, your slide is very intriguing however please change the theme song for your advertisement on your flat screen TV’s situated along the slides. It is really annoying after listening to it repetitively…. thank you.

      1. jeffrey
