If you're so fat you can't make it from the parking lot to your seat, you deserve to miss the game.

What? I think the only issue fat people will have is clogging up the slide on the way from the seats to the car, around 60-70 minutes in when it's clear they're going to lose again.

So, from the stadium to the parking lot... When crowds of people are moving all at once...

Ever seen footage of real airplane slide operations where the person gets to the bottom, stands up and looks back just in time to catch the next person? You'll need operators at the top and bottom to keep people moving at a safe pace.

Also, drunk people leaving will use the slide as a toilet.

I knew it couldn't be in the US.  The stadium's lawyers would have had heart attacks thinking about drunken fans falling off, suing them for negligence & winning.

/cool idea
//we once owned a 3 story house & I seriously considered installing a slide from the 3rd floor bedroom down to the living room.  It however didn't pass Mrs RT's 'are you shiatting me?' test.  Ah well.

Compared to going one-at-a-time on the slide versus taking the stairs using the stairs you'd be home, have dinner, shower, watch TV and be asleep before the fight at the top of the slide was broken up and the mangled corpses at the bottom of the slide were bulldozed into the river.

What's with the giant chicken feet (in the video still)?

It would never work in the US, too many drunks who would hurt themselves, too many personal injury lawyers.

I was hoping for zip-lines.

Slides should be an option anywhere gravity can  have it's way with you. Fun is wasted on kids.

The guy who owned my old company had a slide that went from upstairs in his kid's hallway down to the kitchen. I never got to see it, but apparently it was pretty damned cool...

Great form-over-function there, making exit stairs with a larger entry width than exit width.
