U.K. Office Installs Giant Slide to Shoot Workers Down Three Floors

A British office building has installed a giant slide to whisk employees from the third floor to the first in just seven seconds, the Daily Mail reported.

A company called Electric Works in Sheffield, England, built the spiral slide inside an office complex to draw in companies attracted to the unique design.

The first businesses move in next week and their workers will have exclusive use of the new three-story joyride.

Toby Hyam, who helped design Electric Works, told the Mail the slide was a "statement about risk-taking."

"We know that it will be a novelty at first, and we don't know whether it will that novelty will wear off," he told the Mail. "But if you are having a meeting with a client and people are whizzing past, it will be memorable."
