You can now ride down a glass slide 1000 feet above Los Angeles

Possibly the most terrifying slide ever opened this week, at the top of a 1000 foot tall skyscraper in Los Angeles.

Located between the 70th and 69th floors of the U.S Bank Tower, the tallest building in LA, the slide offers an exhilarating ride – it’s made totally of glass and is attached to the side of the skyscraper.

Providing both awesome views of the city as well as being a thrill seekers dream, the Skyslide is 45 feet long and 4 feet wide. It’s also made totally of glass – 1-¼ inches thick glass, to be exact – which means users can take in the view around them with no visual obstructions. There’s also a viewing platform, OUE Skyspace LA, so that you can enjoy the view at a more leisurely pace from California’s highest open air viewing platform!

A number of famous faces have already made an appearance at the attraction: Jimmy Kimmel sent sidekick Guillermo to test the ride out, with hilarious results.

Meanwhile, users took to Instagram to share photos of their experiences and we have to admit, whilst it sounds like a hair raising experience, those views are pretty amazing! Book your cheap flights to Los Angeles and see for yourself.
