It looks like Bear Grylls has a little competition for the most extreme slide ever. The National Trust in England has installed a 57-foot, stainless steel slide on the Cliveden House property.
According to the website, the nearly 350-year-old historic estate's south terrace is undergoing renovations, and instead of completely shutting down the area, they decided to have a little fun. "Today we want to keep that spirit alive so when planning this major project, we couldn't just close off the staircase and shield everything from view... instead we're taking advantage of the scaffolding to create a special experience this summer," says the website.
Four people can go down the slide at anytime and it takes about five to seven seconds to go from top to bottom -- pretty cool, huh? Click through our slideshow to see photos, and be sure to head over to the National Trust's website for more information. H/T Curbed.
