This Glass Slide on an L.A. Skyscraper Is Terrifying

 |  |  June 27, 2016


Heights. I hate them. Get me up on anything higher than a playground slide and I’m not comfortable. So there’s no way in hell I would be sliding down The Skyslide, which is a see-through glass slide fixed onto outside of the tallest building west of the Mississippi River. There is just no way.

But if you are braver than me, the ride has just opened for business. You can pay $25(USD) to slide down 45 feet of bulletproof glass nearly 1,000 feet in the air. I have to hand it to them, this is a great revenue stream. Tourists and thrill-seekers will all flock to slide down the world’s shortest thrill ride, but I won’t be one of them.

It is part of OUE Skyspace LA, a rooftop observatory atop of the US Bank Tower that gives visitors 360º views of the city They say the glass can withstand hurricane winds or even an earthquake. I wouldn’t want to test that though.
