Lex Slide @Empire Shopping Gallery, Subang Jaya
1st ride ~ 50 metres.... 5 storeys..... 10 seconds..
I "vowed" to use up all the discount coupons purchased earlier before the school holidays ended as we knew there would be busy busy days ahead thereafter, no wastage please!! The "kiam siap" side of me screamed!! I bought the coupon of Lex Slide for 2 rides online at RM14 and realized I did not actually save much, only a mere RM1.
The boy went on two rides to use up the coupon yesterday on New Year's Day. I was all ready to play with him if he chickened out but he did not though he hesitated for a while. After all the 5 storey tall spiral tube slide looked kind of scary even for me and daddy.
You will be given a gunny sack and there's a pouch at the bottom for you to slot your feet in. Then lie back and relax with your arms folded on your chest. The attendant will give you a gentle shove and here you go.. Wheeeee.... down the spiral tube slide! It's a thrilling ride but my boy commented it wasn't as thrilling as he had thought. Okay, boy... wait till you go on your next ride!
On his second ride, something was added underneath his gunny sack, a piece of silky cloth and thus the slippery and faster landing and not to mention more thrilling ride!!!
Look at the screen below, the force didn't stop at the end of the slide and he was thrown and disappeared into a pile of bean bags. He couldn't walk straight when he got up with his body swaying left and right, back and forth. He told us his chubby cheeks wobbled so vigorously he thought they would fly away when taking the spiralling trip down! LOL... my funny boy. Having said that, he still thinks it was fun and wanted more rides next time. Bravo boy!
2nd ride ~ 50 metres.... 5 storeys.... 6 seconds!!
