Getting through airport security and to your gate isn’t always easy especially with kids and carry-ons in tow, but at the Changi Airport in Singapore all you have to do is hop on a slide and ride your way there.

From its indoor forest, complete with a glittering waterfall, to a playground and movie theater, Changi Airport already wins for one of the best airports in the world. But if there’s one feature that young travelers can appreciate it’s the massive, multi-story slide that passengers can take to get downstairs faster. One traveler shared his experience with zipping down the slide in Changi’s Terminal 4.

The thrill ride takes you down several stories and spits you out in front of a giant playground featuring climbing nets and sliding poles to keep kids entertained while they wait for their flights. Your boarding pass plus a $10 fee will get you access to ride down. The slide featured in the video isn’t even the only one in the impressive airport. An even bigger 12-meter slide also exists in Terminal 3.

Maybe if all airports were outfitted with slides and play spaces it would make air travel with kids a little smoother.
