Adult admission begins at $25. Slide is additional $8.
A glass slide fixed 1,000ft (305m) up on the outside of a skyscraper in Los Angeles opens to the public on Saturday. The Skyslide spans 45 ft from the 70th to the 69th floor of the US Bank Tower in the city. They have a observatory deck to look through telescopes, take pictures and hang out. Kids must be 5 years old to ride on the slide.
The US Bank building is located right in the middle of downtown Los Angeles. There is a parking structure on Hope St that you can use to visit the building, or there are other parking lots around the area. Parking can be expensive, but that’s a big city for you. The cheapest parking I have found is at the LA Library where they have an $8 option for two hours if you are visiting Skyspace.
After making your way into the US Bank building, you will be ushered to the elevators and taken to the first of the multiple floors you visit.
Floor 54 is the first floor you get to, and it has a few different interactive exhibits that you can experience.
When you exit the elevator on the 70th floor, you will be able to get in line for the slide or just walk around and take in the views.
There were chairs and couches to lounge on, a bar where you could buy soft drinks and floor to ceiling windows all over. You could see a lot of the famous spots in LA like Dodgers Stadium, Hollywood Sign and even the ocean.
The popular wings that you can see all over Los Angeles make an appearance up here as well and they are a really popular photo spot.
The sunsets are pretty amazing up here and very beautiful with all the city lights .
When you leave there is a great gift shop, A picture stand where they offer you pics they took during your visit and a hallway with a pretty cool Los Angeles Mural on the wall.
