Mountain of Rammer, Special Edition! It's strange, I don't think I've ever seen a slide look anything like that.

From waxy's link: Formal product name is called "the mountain of the rammer", so is, but "rammer mountain" "rammer slide" "tacos riders" and so on you have done the various calling.

"Tako" meaning "octopus." At least that is my understanding from my sushi-based education in Japanese.

wow, those are some cool slides! i remember i was traveling somewhere, chile maybe, and my friend and i came upon a slide that was actually really tall. that's the problem with most slides-- they're fun when you're a kid but then you grow up and the distance from top to bottom is just not enough to provide a thrilling ride. but this one man, it must have been 1 1/2 stories at least... so fun to ride! we were totally jockeying with the kids for position in line.

I thought you meant the Museum of Park Slope. (They do seem to have a thing about octopuses / octopi / whatever.)

Mountain of Rammer looks pretty cool, in a Lovecraftian fever-dream kind of way.

"Mommy, mommy, look! That eldritch horror looks just like my favorite slide!"

The Alpine Slide at Chestnut Mountain in Galena, IL, USA, is the coolest, longest, most-scenic slide I have ever been on. (pic is in upper-right corner) You have to ride the chairlift to get back to the top, of course.

This one is beyond adorable.

I suppose that the King Penguin slide from the anime Cardcaptor Sakura wasn't too much of an exaggeration, to see some of these slides.
