What you are seeing is a replica elephant slide from Pripyat, the now Ukrainian ghost town that residents evacuated decades ago due to Chernobyl. The original slide has appeared on a few lists showcasing the creepiest abandoned amusement parks in the world. Though left by humans, I read recently that the animal population in Pripyat is booming, likely due to losing their most dangerous predator.
Why is this slide in Copenhagen? It’s part of an urban park called Superkilen, developed by a group of Danish artists to showcase diversity. It contains an array of objects from around the world, including a fountain from Morocco, a Thai boxing ring, and a donut shop sign from the United States. CNN did a great piece on it, read the full article here.
