lex slide

Anyone who has been to Empire Shopping Gallery must have seen the Lex Slide. Yup, the spiral metal tube near the escalator that seems to go all the way up to the sky. When you look up in awe from down below.. have you ever wondered.. is it fun? Is it scary? How tall? How fast? Well, I do. Curiosity can’t last for too long, so let’s just give it a try!


5 floors. 50 meters. 10 seconds. Do you dare?


World’s tallest, they say.


Nope, not free.


Get your tix here.


Got em!


That way to the thrill ride!


Make sure you are tall enough.


Follow the instructions.


I’m getting in!


That way out.


Weeeeeee!

My verdict:
- Fun!
- Scary, no kidding! Like roller coaster kind of scary!
- Super duper fast!
- A little bumpy. Be prepared for a slight back sore.
- Don’t eat before you ride.
- Expect some dizziness afterwards.
- Those with motion sickness should stay away.
- RM 12 per person is kind of expensive, don’t you think so?

yes, it is expensive but I already promise my son as a threat for his 11th birthday. And he also demand to eat sushi. Birthday setahun sekali, kasi can la.

Looks like fun. I Was tempted to take a slide too, but RM 12 seems pretty expensive to pay for a 7 sec adrenaline rush.

Hello Dieya,
I love reading your blog esp your travel stories.

Wah! you dah naik that lex slide @ empire tu? seronok dak? asyik la bila pi Empire rasa2 mcm maw try, tp sbb pi Empire asyik nak makan jek, tak sesuai plak to go for the slide ride. having said that, to me the place does not have amusement park' environment kan, sah2 dlm shopping mall, so kang terjerit2 mcm org gila..hahaha buat kecoh plak! but probably sooner or later, nak jugak try.

dieya said...

shue,
welcome onboard! it's always nice to meet a new friend :-)
glad to hear u like reading my travelogs.. tak sia2 i tulis.. hehehe
yeah the lex slide was fun! just that bumpy sikit, so u better don't lie flat, nnt sakit blkg. raise your back a bit. i dah byk kali gi empire mmg dok mkn jek, tu baru nak try the slide. takpe, it's a tube, jerit mcm nampak hantu kak limah pun takde org dengar :-D

PatinPasta said...

Dieya,
Scary indeeeeeeeeed! Hehe!

Hey, how bout you start throwing people out of the planes for half of that price? Any takers? :D

dieya said...

aida,
scary but fun! fun! fun!
what if i throw you? :-D

Fiza.I said...

dieya said...
