The most popular slide in Los Angeles
It takes four seconds for a man to go down a single floor (from 70 to 69) of the tallest building in Los Angeles. Nothing unusual in that, except when he does it on the outside of the building, on a grey mat, riding a transparent slide. The Skyslide is the most exciting attraction at OUE Skyspace, a panoramic platform with a 360° view of the city, housed in the US Bank Tower. A height of 300m and a few scarce centimetres of glass separate this ‘transparent worm’ from the ground. Nevertheless, you could hang “two blue whales from the slide and it won’t budge,” affirms John Gamboa, vice president of OUE. Those who don’t suffer from vertigo have to pay $25 for the ride, a fee that includes a visit to the panoramic platform.
