Belgian artist and designer Carsten Höller has created a massive fun house-inspired theme park playground at the Hayward Gallery in London. The whimsical installations are fun and exciting for both children and adults. The installations include twin outdoor spiral slides and two hang gliding machines.

The two-storey theme park playground occupies both outdoor and indoor spaces. The interior installations include the opportunity to see the world through upside down goggles and explore the massive art sculptures that are larger than life versions of snakes and dice.

The entire playground is created to evoke a sense of play within adults and children. It's a great way to explore the unique artwork presented by Höller while enjoying some unusual games and activities. The whole installation is one giant maze that attempts to redefine the everyday interactions people encounter but don't really recognize.
