It was fun because it was raining and I was the only one using it. A wet track means your back wheels are able to slide sideways a bit more easily in the turns, so you can corner faster with less fear of a spill.
Man that brings me back to the late-80s/early-90s and my youthful summers at Action Park in NJ. I miss everything about that place...the danger made it fun.
On another note, the Olympic Park website says this about their Alpine Slide: "This European-style alpine slide is the first of its kind in North America." Maybe it's the first metal one, but they're about 30 years late to the game here.
