This news is from Shanghai. Shanghai is a city in China.

A shopping centre in Shanghai opens a slide. The slide is 54 metres long. It goes from the fifth floor to the ground floor. The ride lasts only 16 seconds.

People are excited about the slide. They want to bring their children to it. However, children must be 3 years or older. They must be at least 1 metre tall, too.

Difficult words: slide (a thing you sit on to slide down), last (to exist), excited very (happy).
