Would you take a ride on a slide attached to a skyscraper?

Get ready to be intrigued followed by disappointment. Starting in summer 2016, if you’re looking for a unique adrenaline rush, you’ll be able to hop on a clear slide that straddles the tallest building west of the Mississippi River.

Part of a $50 million renovation on a building in Downtown Los Angeles, the new slide will also be a part of an open-air observation deck and a new bar area.  So how just how far down the building will you slide? From the 70th floor straight down to the 69th floor.

That’s right, only 15 feet is the length of this slide which will set you back $8 as long as you’ve already paid the $25 to reach the observation deck itself. Adding a tourist attraction to Downtown Los Angeles might not be the best idea, but what do I know? Let’s hope this concept proves fruitful so we can see bigger, longer slides in other cities around the world.
