A shopping mall in Shanghai have put in a slide in order to speed up the footfall for their customers.

The stainless-steel slide in the luxury Printemps shopping centre in 65 feet long and travels from the fifth floor to the ground floor.

It will officially open next month in the China-based mall, will be free to use for all customers over three feet tall. Those under that height restriction, or suffering from any kind of ailment that might be set off by using a slide to travel five stories in 16 seconds, have been told to use an alternative form of inter-floor transport instead.

If or how your shopping bags will travel down the slide with you is yet to be ascertained.
