The Ultimate Playground Slide

28th June 2016

Los Angeles

The residents of LA have recently found themselves with a new attraction, in addition to the Hollywood sign and Chinese Theatres, in a local skyscraper. For $25 the U.S. Bank Tower in La will allow you up their 1,018 foot skyscraper to view what they call their Skyspace, which overlooks the city.

For an additional $8 they will also let you ride their glass slide. Armed with a rug you will slide down one floor on the outside of the building contained in a glass container.

For those of you who are unsure about sliding down a tube of glass at over a 1000 feet above the streets of LA, think again. The slide has been built to be strong enough to withstand both hurricanes and earthquakes. The tempered glass is 1¼ inches thick and has been chemically strengthened, making it as strong as steel. In fact the glass is actually strong enough to carry a school bus full of children.

The slide costs as much as a rollercoaster. With a total bill of $3.5 million we can only hope the attraction brings enough enjoyment for everyone.
