LOS ANGELES, 24 June 2016: 

Nearly 1,000 feet (305m) above the streets of downtown Los Angeles, a glass slide on the outside of the 70th floor of the city’s tallest building is preparing to welcome the brave.

The Skyslide, on the 73-floor US Bank Tower, will open to the public tomorrow and allow thrill seekers to slide 45 feet (14m) to an outdoor platform on the 69th floor.

According to the building’s owner, Singapore-based OUE Ltd., the glass on the fully enclosed slide is only 1¼ inches (3.2cm) thick, but can withstand hurricane-force winds and even a powerful earthquake.

To get an idea of what it must be like to try this slide, view video here.
