Cold Wars, Nukes, slides and you. How to Survive your Nuclear Fallout

By Richard K. Noots

In 1995 there was a vestige of the Cold War discovered deep in Taiwan. It was a safety tunnel designed to quickly net people out of harm’s way in case of any nuclear attack. Fortunately, this thing never got any serious use. Now, play is a different story. Take a look at this video and the pictures below, could you imagine relying on a slide to bring you to safety? I guess it’s better than nothing …

Ready … Steady … Slide!

    That slide looks really fun. I know it wouldn’t be if I were actually relying on it to save myself from a nuclear weapon because I’d be all stressed out, but in my current comfort and safety, I just want to ride it for kicks.

  2. BlakeDrake says:

    That’s pretty much what I was thinking. I do think it’s cool that they made something like this to get people to safety and I wish my local area had one.

    This slide does look like a lot of fun. Of course, I can’t imagine a ton of people sliding down this all at the same time during a nuclear attack. I think that could get out of control with all the people panicking. I really like how the slide is concealed behind the fake wall, you would never know that slide was even there.

    This is well constructed, although it is hard to imagine having to actually need one of these underground installations, although I guess you never know.

    It does look like fun, but I agree with you, I wonder how well it would work when people were all freaked out and crowding on it? As a recreational thing sure, but I wonder about how well it would work in emergencies…
