Nobody likes walking stairs, so at this trainstation, they thought of something better.

i dont know, but the bottom part ends a little low... you might scrape your behind on the ground... idea +1, implementation -1

This is in The Netherlands, in a place called ''Utrecht'', more specifically Utrecht Overvecht.

News article + vid here

The article says people were complaining that the station wasn't ''gezellig'' (=cozy/sociable, go ahead and try to pronounce ''gezellig'') enough so they placed this slide as some sort of a joke.

I'm not accustomed to slides driving me directly into the ground.

good idea but I think I wouldn't use it due to nastiness. I imagine drunk people pissing on it...I know I would

It sorta looks like its meant for bags. But I dont know.

What's the purpose of the enclosed tunnel section at the top? Is this to ensure people sit down on the slide as opposed to 'surfing' down?

God forbid people walk down 24 stairs.

Not nasty at all, I think they clean it or something :)

Drunk people don't pee in the Netherlands. Google it.
