Spain’s longest “urban slide” has been closed after just one day, due to injuries and complaints.  Built in Estepona, the slide runs from Calle Reina Sofia to Calle Eslovaquia.  The 38 metre long slide cost €47,000 to build and is now facing a safety review, after several people complained about friction burns and other minor injuries.

Isolated Incidents

The council are insisting that proper signage has been erected to instruct people how to use the urban slide safely, and claim that the injuries are isolated incidents.  They say that around a thousand people have used the slide without any problems.
