Brand new slide in Downtown Dubai



If you live in Downtown Dubai near Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard, you may have noticed that there’s an alternative to taking the stairs. Instead of walking down the steps towards Burj Park and Souk Al Bahar, you can embrace your inner child and go via the brand new slide.

The so-called Downtown Slide by Emaar Properties is just beside luxury apartment block The Residences. At 19 metres long, seven metres tall and positioned at a 30 degree angle, it’s a fun way to start the day.

They’ve even made sure it’s prepared for the summer heat, with insulation preventing it from getting too hot. Designed with German engineering by the same company who created SEGO Republic’s ‘Giant Slider’ attractions, it’s definitely going to bring some fun to the area. It’s open from 4pm until 1am every day and, best of all, it’s free. If we lived in The Residences we’d probably have a go on our way to work every single morning – you know that you’d do it too.
