Slides are just for kids and they’re usually found on playgrounds or backyards, right? Wrong!
In downtown Los Angeles, the US Bank building is the second tallest building in the city. Attached to it is a slide, but this isn’t just an everyday slide.
It’s a slide over 300 metres up in the air and made out of glass. It also just happens to be attached to the outside of a building. Best of all? It’s way up high, so you can slide from the 70th floor to the 69th floor terrace. Or you could just use the stairs…
Rumour has it that the slide was built to hold the weight of a humpback whale.
The glass sky slide is made from various panels of tempered glass with a total length of 13.7 metres, and it was constructed or, rather, attached to the building in 2018.
The skyscraper also has some viewing decks with pretty amazing views and a bar where you can drink to your newly accomplished achievement.
Yeah, we’d rather just stay in the bar and wait for the others to go down the slide, thanks.
Watch the Oddity Odysseys video below to see what the glass slide looks like.
