Favorite moving walkways

Kaplan has a picture of my most favorite moving walkway in the whole world among his recent photos--the one between the National galleries in DC. It is my favorite because it's very long and the surface is like a grooved, rubberized track. It is possible to bounce (or hop) down this moving walkway and then use the momentum to leap off--landing several feet from the end.

Some of the moving walkways in the airport in Tokyo are pretty good, but they're not nearly as bouncy. And the ones at the Chicago airport have trippy lights. In fact, this is the only moving walkway I can think of in a museum. Am I forgetting any?
