LA’s 70-Story-High Skyslide

A new observation deck near the very top of California’s tallest building offers more than just incredible views, but a glass slide suspended on the outside of the building; 1,000 feet above street level.

The OUE Skyspace LA debuts June 25 inside the U.S. Bank Tower in downtown Los Angeles. For a $20 fee, the attraction offers 360-degree views of Los Angeles on the 69th and 70th floors, 2,800 square feet of open air observation decks, a restaurant and bar, and the big thrill: the Skyslide.

The Skyslide is an outdoor glass chute, made of 1-1/4-inch thick glass, and positioned 1,000 feet above downtown Los Angeles where thrill-seekers can experience sliding off the side of a skyscraper. Guests sit on a rug that’s wrapped around their knees to reduce friction and gain incredible speed as they travel from the 70th to 69th floor in the fastest way possible.
