Slides down on the ground too boring for you? Book a trip to Los Angeles. The Skyslide has officially opened at the city’s US Bank Tower and gives thrill seekers a slide 1,000 feet in the air.
The Skyslide is 45-feet long, going from the 70th to a landing on the outside of the 69th floor. It’s made of one-inch think glass, but is built to withstand hurricane-force winds and earthquakes.
For $25, you can give the slide a try. “I went a lot faster than I thought I would,” one rider says. “And you kind of like hit the side as you’re coming around the curve, so you’re really pressed up against the glass, so you see the whole world below you, but it’s not really that scary.” Personally, I think it would be much cooler if it was A LOT longer and a water slide! Now THAT would be cool!
