Add this one to your weekend to-do list Miamians! Aventura Mall’s shiny slide tower recently reopened to the public and we’re all about reliving our best childhood memories in style. The slide tower, which first opened back in 2017, had been closed to the public since the beginning of the pandemic.
The functional artwork was designed by German sculptor Carsten Höller for Aventura Mall’s 2017 three-story wing expansion and features two spiral steel slides which people can actually ride down through. Known for his large-scale artworks that draw upon amusement parks, playgrounds and zoos, Höller wanted to bring a sense of joy and a feeling “somewhere between delight and madness” to the slide which can be enjoyed from the inside sliding down or from downstairs while staring up at the whimsical structure — and let me tell you the slide is way too much fun to ride, no matter your age.
And the best part is, it’s completely free to ride! All you got to do is go up its spiral staircase, jump on a rug that will help ease your way down and enjoy the ride!
The Aventura Slide Tower is currently open for slides every Monday through Friday from 2 p.m. until 7 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 12 p.m. until 7 p.m. You can find more information on Aventura Mall’s website here.
