How fast can fun get?
The new Volkswagen Golf GTI has a top speed of 244 km/h. Not many drivers would be brave enough to try and reach it, but now everyone can experience a whole lot of fun at a fraction of that speed – thanks to the GTI Fast Lane.
Following up on the official launch of the new Golf GTI on 6 July 2013, Volkswagen Singapore has created the GTI Fast Lane. A first-of-its-kind, high-velocity slide located in the heart of Golden Village VivoCity, the GTI Fast Lane is an exciting alternative to walking down the long flight of stairs linking the cinema’s two floors.
The GTI Fast Lane has a slide length of over 13 metres and it’s angled downwards at 23 degrees, allowing riders to reach a maximum speed of almost 15 km/h. It is open every Thursday to Sunday from 25 July to 18 August 2013 and access is free to everyone over 12 years old, regardless of whether they are Golden Village patrons.
“The new Golf GTI is all about driving enjoyment. With the GTI Fast Lane, we have created similar thrills that can be enjoyed in a unique and accessible form,” said Melissa Bell, General Manager of Marketing Communications at Volkswagen Singapore. “Whether you’ve just driven the Golf GTI or gone on the GTI Fast Lane, it’s hard not to come out smiling.”
Photos taken of the riders are uploaded to the Volkswagen Singapore Facebook page. The people with the best photos each week win great prizes from Volkswagen and Golden Village.
