The Flight Centre Global HQ official opening party in Brisbane yesterday will go down in history as one Agents will never forget… but it’s not because of the alcohol consumed or any next-day-cringe-worthy activity.

No, this one will go down as the day Graham Turner aka Skroo Turner, surrendered to his staff and agreeing to take a ride down the office slide.

In case you missed it, yesterday Flight Centre officially opened its new global headquarters based in Southbank, Brisbane.

The multi-story building is essentially the travel version of a Google office, with several treats designed to create a positive and enjoyable work environment.

There’s tour bus and plane-shaped meeting rooms, park-themed lunch areas and incredible views, but perhaps the more anticipated feature of the new office is the slide.

Yep, an actual slide, which employees can use on their way out of the building.

Week 3 in the office and I finally got around to checking out the slides πŸ™ˆ #southpoint #flightcentre

Of course, Agents were quick to try out the device during yesterday’s launch and were even kind enough to share their experiences on social media.

They were having such a blast on the blue slide, they even managed to coax their boss into getting in on the action.

Check out the clip below:

Turner wasn’t the only official hiking up his pants and slipping into the ride… staff even managed to get the actual Flight Centre Captain – who was also at the opening by the way – to take a ride.

Amongst the perks of being #thecaptain is being one of the first down the slide at #southpoint

Slide aside, another highlight of the opening party was seeing Agents in their Halloween gear.

Some went all out for the special occasion like this pair that turned up as Mr and Mrs Potato Head:
