MiamiHerald / That giant 93-foot glass-and-steel slide that’s been tantalizing shoppers at Aventura Mall for months is finally ready to ride.
The “Aventura Slide Tower,” which was designed by German sculptor Carsten Höller, opened to the public Monday – the crowning touch in the first phase of Aventura Mall’s ambitious, $214 million expansion. Additions include a luxurious food hall, a covered parking garage, art installations and several new, world-famous tenants.
Neil Gilchrist, 15, reacts after going down a new 93-foot-tall slide at Aventura Mall on Monday, Dec. 18, 2017. Aventura Slide Tower, which is free for anyone to use, is part of a three-story wing expansion at the mall. The move added new restaurants, retail stores and an outdoor fountain.
