Riding Singapore’s Tallest Slide at Changi Airport Terminal 37 April, 2013
We thought we have seen it all with the hidden gems of Changi Airport post. However we missed out the Tallest Slide in not just Changi Airport but also the whole of Singapore! The Slide@T3 is the latest addition to the diverse range of facilities at the world’s most-awarded airport and is a boost to Changi Airport’s growing popularity as a family weekend destination. At 12 metres tall, the jumbo twister slide is the height of four standard basketball hoops stacked on top of one another. Riders can expect to experience a top speed of 6 metres/second while going down the slide.
The Slide@T3 is the tallest slide in Singapore and in an airport around the world. This four-storey tall slide located at Terminal 3 Level 1 (Arrival Hall) is open to young and old – no age ceiling or floor. If the idea of sliding down a four-storey tall slide is too scary, you can try out the one-and-a-half storey tall slide at Terminal 3 Basement 2 – it is actually not that scary, you can actually control the speed you slide down by leaning forward or backward.
Riding the Slide@T3 is essentially free – just do your shopping at Changi Airport (with the many shopping options available – some even tax-free – this shouldn’t be a problem. For every $10 spent at Changi Airport in a single receipt, members of the public can redeem one ride at the 12-metre slide located at Terminal 3, Arrival Hall (Level 1), Public Area.
Rides are redeemable at the Terminal 3 Level 1 Information Counter. You can redeem up to a maximum of 10 rides per receipt on the same day. Changi Rewards card members can redeem up to 5 free rides per month during birthday months.
Even if you are not doing any shopping – you can still have fun with the slide – Visitors can enjoy the shorter, one-and-a-half storey tall slide located at Terminal 3 Basement 2, for which no tokens are required. Thus if you are unsure whether you will be able to take the thrill of the taller slide, why not try out the shorter one first.
Both slides are open daily from noon to 10.30pm.
Challenge yourself to slide to the “Awesome” marker (see picture below) at the end of the ride – I couldn’t even reach the “Cool” marker!
Actually the slide experience is not very scary as can be seen in the Slide at Terminal 3 Changi Airport video below:
