Besides the epic waterfall at Changi Airport in Singapore, do you know about the tubular slide that brings you straight to your boarding gate?

The slide, located at Terminal 4, snakes its way downwards into an open gate area with a giant red-coloured play structure called the "Chandelier" in the middle.

The slide runs parallel to traditional stairs and escalators, providing an additional layer of fun for both the young and the young at heart.

It's open to everyone with a height requirement of at least 1.1 metres (3.6 feet) up to 2 metres (6.6 feet).

The ride is free, all you need to do is scan your boarding pass to gain entry.

A viral video showcasing the slide at Changi Airport Terminal 4 gained immense popularity on Facebook, amassing approximately 2.2 million views.

The video, posted by the travel account Unilad Adventure in October 2022, features a user scanning their boarding pass and sliding down to the transit area.

Here's the full video, where you can also get a first-person view of the ride:

If you think that's fun, there's actually another much taller slide at the airport

This bigger slide, situated in Terminal 3 of the airport, is renowned as "the world's tallest slide in an airport", according to Changi Airport's website.

Standing at an impressive 12 metres (four storeys) high, this gravity-defying ride takes you from Level 1 all the way to Basement 3.

There is just one catch. This particular slide is exclusive to Changi Rewards members, but signing up is not difficult. You just need to spend SGD10 (about RM35) at any restaurant or retail shop in Changi Airport and you'll be able to redeem 10 complimentary slides.

This attraction is suitable for both adults and children. There is no weight limit and the slide is accessible for those between 1.3 metres (4.3 feet) and 2.0 metres (6.6 feet) tall.
