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.

Since its opening on June 25, 2016, countless visitors including those from Jimmy Kimmel Live and The Today Show have tested their courage and documented their experiences on Skyslide. For the faint of heart, it may provide some comfort to know that Skyslide is intended to be able to withstand an 8.0 earthquake and 110-mile-per-hour hurricane force winds.
