Why take the elevator to the floor below when you can slide off a chute made of glass that is affixed to the side of a 73â€“story building? Daredevils rejoice â€“ OUE SkySpace LA, the new open-air observation deck that is also the tallest in California has opened a 45 feet long outdoor glass slide suspended 1,000 ft above the streets below. Installed as part of a SkySpace renovation in the U.S. Bank Tower, Skyslide transports people from the 70th to the outside of the 69th floor. The slide is made of three-ply glass that is strong enough to withstand hurricane-force winds and earthquakes despite being just one-inch thick. And though the price too can be a little steep, (US$25 for the Skyspace ticket and US$8 for Skyslide passes), visitors who brave themselves for that quick dose of adrenaline will be treated to exciting views of the cityâ€™s tallest skyscrapers and mountains of the San Gabriel Valley.
