German university has awesome slides of maximum efficiency

These giant parabolic slides, or Parabelrutsche are located in the Mathematik/Informatik building of the Technical University of Munich, Garching campus. The preferred method for riding them appears to be on boring carpet squares, however a quick search shows that more daring methods have also been tried. [thanks, Grace!]

    I wonder if these math slides have “slide rules” that you have to follow to ride them…
