I got very excited when I read about it in the Times yesterday but then I wondered if it was all a wind-up. I'm glad that in these health and safety obsessed days (falling pears anyone?!) something like this can still happen.
Still I will be trying it out at the earliest possible opportunity just in case someone inspects the slide later and finds it too slippy or something.
At last a return to something befitting the space.
Bring back Olafur Eliasson's Foggy Sunset for the winter I say.
That was a great exhibit as was Anish Kapoors Marsyas.
The heads and the boxes were uninspiring.
The trick is to wait at the main entrace (that being the one down a ramp) in time for opening, and make sure you're one of the first at the ticket desk, which is on the right hand side at the bottom of the ramp. That way the only waiting time is for the doors to open. I did that on Saturday and had slid by 10.05am - by then the queue had extended right up to the doors.
