A glass slide fixed at the top of one of the tallest buildings in Los Angeles opened to the public over weekend. Thrill-seekers can pay $25 to have a go on the slide, which is made of bulletproof glass and suspended almost 1,000 feet in the air.
The slide is a part of OUE Skyspace LA, a rooftop observatory that gives visitors 360 views of the city at the top of the US Bank Tower. The all-new OUE Skyspace LA is California’s tallest open-air observation deck at almost 1,000 feet above downtown Los Angeles, and the premiere destination for 360-degree views of the city, stretching from the Hollywood Hills to the Pacific Ocean.
This is a great idea for people who want a high vantage point to view the expanding metropolis, and the slide works for people who don’t think that’s enough.
Made entirely of 37mm thick clear glass, the Skyslide is 45 feet long and takes users from floor 70 to floor 69 in a completely unique and terrifying or beautiful way – depending on your disposition! The strength of the glass is enough to withstand hurricane winds and an earthquake, according to reports by the BBC.
