    I actually think it looks pretty cool. I can imagine it being very disorientating, especially with all of the directional changes.

    I like this because it feels very unique.

    I find it a little disappointing that the video keeps cutting, though. As if the repeated back-and-forth-in-the-same-place sections are exactly as unthrilling in real life as it looked on the animated POV.

    It looks extremely disorientating, I kinda want it now.

    Probs because they haven't cleaned it out after the construction of it.

    I can imagine the conversation now:

    Weigand: Okay, so that's the technical aspects of this project agreed. Now for the fun part - what colour would you like it in?
    Chimelong: Oooh yay. What colours does it come in?
    Wiegand: Well, here's our range. *gives Chimelong a catalogue of their colour swatches*
    Chimelong: *after flicking through the catalogue* Yup. Looks good to us.
    Wiegand: Which colour do you want, then?
    Chimelong: Oh, all of them, please!
    Wiegand: ...
    Chimelong: ...
    Wiegand: ...Sure!

    Sometimes multicolour works when they're all the same shade of colour, this literally is 50 Shades of [everything but] Grey.

    It's almost like they knew it'd look like a monstrosity regardless, so decided to make it as much as a statement as possible :D

    My thinking is that the shocking colours are perhaps to make the slide look a lot less intimidating and sinister. Tbh, if I saw one of those at a park and it was all white/black or all one colour, I would think it to be less appealing and more claustrophobic. Might just be me though.
