Lyon Airport has a 2-story slide to keep the kiddies occupied

Aéroport Lyon-Saint-Exupéry (LYS) has a 2-story slide to keep the kiddies occupied. Free of charge, requires minimal maintenance and no electricity, and with a enough safety disclaimers to presumably inoculate against frivolous lawsuits, the slide is just the kind of thing to delight harried parents even more than their kids.

Readers, what kid-friendly features have you found at airports?

The airport design is pretty cool, and has a nice mix of dining and retail.

    SIN has a great slide! Unfortunately I don’t think it’s free (unless you spend a bit at Duty Free), and if I remember correctly it’s in arrivals, after immigration. MSP also has a little Snoopy play area that I’m rather fond of, although I rarely saw it used the 5 years that MSP was my home airport.

  • If I recall correctly, the one at SIN is at T3 in the non sterile zone. I’m not sure if you any purchase is necessary for it, but it is like 3 or 4 stories tall. Picture isn’t as good as I remembered, but it looks like there may a 2 story slide and a 3 story slide. And it is certainly outside the secure area.

    Unfair to adults!
