A mall in Shanghai has built a 65-foot steel slide in its premises in order to boost customer footfall.

The five-story stainless steel slide was constructed in the luxury Printemps shopping centre in Shanghai in order to attract new customers to the premises.

It will begin operating by March and will free of charge. Children must over three foot tall and three years old to use the slide. Those with underlying health conditions like heart disease or a fear of heights are encouraged to take alternative transport like the escalator or lifts.
