Workplace creates giant slippery slide for office Christmas party

We like to think we go all out for our Christmas parties, sporting a sparkly novelty jumper and dancing the night away, but turns out we were very wrong.

An office in Brisbane, Australia, has set the bar for all end of year parties by making a giant, slippery slide right down the length of their office. 

A picture of the 60 metres construction, called the Slip'n'Slide, was shared by an office worker on Reddit yesterday and has since gone viral, receiving over 1,600 comments.

The make-shift slide involved clearing a section of the office, laying a sheet of plastic and covering it in water and soap suds.

The party took place at global travel company Flight Centre's Brisbane headquarters where the Slip'n'Slide has been an annual tradition for six years to raise money for the company's foundation charities.

The event has remained largely under wraps until the image of this year's festivities went viral this weekend.

Office workers dressed in corporate clothes watched as each of their colleagues, one by one, slid head first down the slide. The aim of the game is to try to get to the very end of the structure using only the force of your weight.

"It's awesome to work for a company that doesnt take itself too seriously," an employee, who declined to be identified, told Mashable. "We are well known for our love of a good party all over the world, and the annual Christmas Slip'n'Slide is just one example of this."
