This Insane Glass Slide Will Hover 1,000 Feet Above the Ground

A brief, but heart-pounding ride 70 floors up.

US Bank Tower's 45-foot glass-enclosed Skyslide

Rather than simply taking an elevator directly to the 69th floor observation deck atop the tallest building in California (Los Angeles’ U.S. Bank Tower), wouldn’t it be more fun to arrive there by sliding 45 feet down to it through an outdoor glass enclosure?

Hovering 1,000 feet above the city’s sidewalks, the aptly named Skyslide will be the primary attraction of Skyspace LA, a four-floor experience expected to open on June 25th. Tickets, which go on sale two weeks from tomorrow, range from $8 for the slide to $25 for a day pass.

There, we made it all the way through this post without a bad joke about floor number (nice). We only mention this for the sake of transparency. After all, sophomoric joking like that is a slippery slope.
