Would You Have The Balls To Go Down This Clear Glass Slide Suspended 1,000 Feet In The Air?

by 4 years ago

My answer to the question of whether I would go down ANYTHING suspended 1,000 fee in the air is a resounding NOPE, let alone a freaking GLASS slide.

That doesn’t mean people won’t do it, because of course they will. People are insane.

The glass slide in question here will be mounted on a skyscraper in Los Angeles and is planning on being available to crazy people this summer.

Running from the 70th floor to the 69th floor of the US Bank Tower in L.A. the slide will be made of glass 1.25 inches thick so yeah, you’ll be totally safe I’m sure.

To remedy the dullness of tired, conventional glass-bottomed sky decks, the owners of the US Bank Tower are building a “Skyslide,” according to Curbed LA. Dropping from the 70th to the 69th floor of the West Coast’s tallest building, the Skyslide will let thrill seekers slip along a 36-foot-long glass-bottomed slide more than 1,000 off the ground. Hopefully this actually happens, unlike the dud that was supposed to be downtown’s giant slip-n-slide.

It will cost you $25 to visit the Skyspace observation decks and another $8 to go down the slide. So $33 for a few seconds of pure terror. Sounds like a dream/nightmare to me!
