The climax of the "Ambitious Guest" occurs after the family and Guest have disclosed all their "fancies" and the roaring sound of the Slide is upon them. They rush from the safety of their cottage to death.

Afterwards, it is ironically clear that once the family gave into their undisclosed fantasies and left the simpleness of their life behind, there was nothing left of them!
