Zurich 1, Mountain View 0

In Mountain View we have a slide that goes from the 4th floor to the 3rd floor.

Here in Zurich, they have a fireman's pole that goes from the 2nd floor to the 1st floor, and then a slide that starts on the the 1st floor and ends right in the middle of the ground floor cafeteria. The slide is curved in a tighter spiral than in Mountain View, and isn't covered the whole way, so you kind of get the feeling that if you weighed a little more and went a little faster, you might be able to jump the side while sliding down. Also, they correctly 0-index their floors here.

(Tip on using a fireman's pole: brake with your legs!)
