A new attraction suspended 1,000 feet over downtown Los Angeles is either terrifying or – for adrenaline junkies – incredible.
This summer, an outdoor glass slide – dubbed the skyslide -- will make its debut, and will be attached to the West Coast’s tallest building, the U.S. Bank Tower. It will run between the 70th and 69th stories of the building.
At 36 feet long, running between the 70th and 69th stories, the slide will grant riders an impressive bird’s eye view of the city and is part of a revamp to the 72-story tower.
But it comes at a small price.
In order to visit the rooftop complex, which also features a restaurant, guests will be required to purchase a $25 ticket. Sliding down costs an additional $8.
Presale tickets for skyslide, which opens on June 25, will go on sale March 18.
