This Skyslide Installed On A Skyscraper 1,000 Feet Up Looks F*cking Terrifying
If you’re not a big fan of heights, you might want to look away now.
Los Angeles has just been delivered an absolute thrill ride – a glass slide which extends out of a skyscraper 1,000 feet above the ground.
It has been dubbed ‘The Skyslide’ and had to be delivered by helicopter on Saturday to the 69th floor of the 72-storey U.S Bank Tower – L.A.’s tallest skyscraper.
Despite experiencing a bit of turbulence, the slide was successfully brought to the tower and installed.
The slide is now set to open on June 25th and will allow customers to slide down from the 70th to 69th floor, as they take a peek through the two-inch thick glass.
The 45-foot-long slide has been advertised as a ‘safe, thrilling experience unlike any other in the world’ by the builder owner OUE Limited.
Head of U.S operations, Lucy Rumantir, said in a statement: “Guests of all ages will have the opportunity to transform their view of Los Angeles as they glide down, gazing at unparalleled views of the city.”
Visitors will be able to spot Catalina Island and the Santa Monica Mountains on a good day, but to be honest though, many will probably be too busy shitting themselves to get a nice glimpse of the view.
The slide is part of a $50 million revamp, that will also see an open-air observation deck and bar put into the tower’s top floors. If you want to brave the slide, it’ll cost you $8 (£5.50) to enter and to visit the observation deck, tickets are $25 (£17.32).
