If there is one thing you should do this summer, it’s to head over to the Hayward Gallery on the South Bank, before it closes for a two-year refurbishment. Really? Well sort of. The real reason is to partake in the awesomeness that is Carsten Höller’s new exhibition ‘Decision’.

The show is packed full of decisions, so to help you along your way, here’s five things you should definitely try.

Be a willing art guinea pig

Enhance your experience of the show by popping one of the red and white pills that fall from the gallery ceiling every three seconds.

Big kids playground

If you like getting up close and personal to other people in confined spaces and are comfortable flashing your derrière for all to see as you try to gracefully slide inside a large die, then this deceptively challenging exhibit is just for you.

Alternative reality

Ever wanted to get a different perspective on the world? Well grab a pair of Upside Down Goggles and prepare to be amazed. You’ll have to mind your step though as you no doubt bump, we mean meet, other upsidedowners, enjoying their new view of the Thames.

Bird’s eye view

Not for the faint of heart or vertigo suffers, the Flying Machines are definitely for extreme sports fanatics. Once you’re strapped in and have mastered the speed regulator, you can enjoy the soaring views over Waterloo Bridge.

Don’t be a scaredy cat

The last decision you’ll have to make is whether you leave via the boring old stairs or the Isomeric Slides. Hands down (or crossed), the slides should be your only option. Grab a sack and join the queue for the best exit of any show, EVER.
