Is this the world’s best slide?

Set to open in July 2021, British Columbia’s Malahat Skywalk will likely become one to add to the list for Aussies heading to Canada. 



Just a little over 30 minutes from Victoria, BC, you can walk through Douglas and Fir forest along a 600 metre elevated walkway before coming to an impressive spiral tower. 


Here, 250 metres above sea level, you can take in 360-degree views of both Canada and the USA. 


While the view from the top may seem impressive, the way down is even more fun. Instead of just riding a lift down the ten storeys, visitors can instead opt to slip down a 20-metre spiral slide. 



Malahat SkyWalk is located on the traditional territory of the Malahat Nation and their Indigenous stories will also be embedded throughout the experience.


“Malahat SkyWalk is investing in Vancouver Island at a time when the economy is challenged by a global pandemic,” Malahat SkyWalk general manager Ken Bailey said.


“We are taking a long view, contributing to the sustainable, long-term growth of the tourism industry in B.C. by offering future travellers a new reason to visit the island and stay longer.”


Once open, Malahat SkyWalk will welcome guests seven days a week, 365 days a year, adhering to the B.C. Provincial Health Order and all required health and safety protocols.
