Sliding Down The Skyslide In LA – Design You Trust

Sliding Down The Skyslide In LA

AFP / David McNew

For those who love to pair spectacular views with an adrenaline rush, a ride on the recently opened Skyslide is the perfect combination of both. Visitors can experience Skyslide’s unparalleled, panoramic views of downtown Los Angeles from within an enclosed glass slide that is suspended 1,000 feet above ground. The slide begins on the 70th floor of the U.S. Bank Tower, the tallest building on the West Coast, and extends 45 feet down to the 69th floor. The San Gabriel Mountains, Pacific Ocean, and even Catalina Island can be observed on clear days.
